Staying strong


Sunday, September 22, 2013

Hello Spark People!!

I realize that I did not blog yesterday about my challenge. But I am keeping it up! Yesterday I felt REALLY hungry all day, so I had a couple of snacks along with my meals. I was also feeling slightly sick yesterday morning - nothing major, but I felt dizzy and my stomach was upset. So I ate soft foods, and a few extra calories, and I felt better by yesterday night. While my energy levels have been experiencing more of a balance, I think that my body is still adjusting to this food. And I figured that eating a few extra calories last night wasn't the worst thing because, as previously mentioned, I am training for a half marathon, and some of the routines have been very strenuous. This morning I ran a little over five miles, so I think I needed the extra fuel!

It might be time that I post a layout of my training plan, so that any who are interested can get a general idea. I found this plan on Pinterest, and I am going into week 5 right now:
Monday - Yoga/Stretch, Cardio HIIT
Tuesday- Moderate run
Wednesday- Cross Train, arms HIIT
Thursday - Moderate Run, legs HIIT
Friday - Rest or Stretch
Saturday - Cross Train, abs
Sunday - Long Run

Right now, going into my fifth week, my moderate runs will be four to four and a half miles, and my long run will be six. I am very into this program, and I am loving the endurance that I am building. My runs are getting faster too! Last week, I ran 5 miles in 59 minutes. This week, I did it in 54. Not bad!
