May- I say I am awesome!

Thursday, May 19, 2011

I have been very quiet blog-wise but active within our sparkling community. emoticon
I have been slow, determined and consistent with my running training.
I have had a few set-backs in training for my 10km race.
I chose to run the 5km Run The Rock in April instead of the 10km - simply because I forgot my freakin' runners when packing for this fabulous weekend get away with my partner! I was determined to walk the event bare foot if need be but luckily the event organiser has the same shoe size as moi.
She graciously lent me her very own marathon runners (I literally ran a mile in her shoes)! emoticon
I ran my firs 8 km race this month: The Mothers Day Classic.
For this event I traveled interstate and ran with my brother, his 2 teen boys & partner. Plus I got to spend a few days with my darling mum, who is frail and is recovering from a broken wrist, but has many osteo problems.
The thing is: getting beyond the 5 km distance has invigorated me so much- I feel confident I can easily make a 10 km and maybe a half marathon one day!

Streaking on all health fronts:
x 3 strength train sessions at the Y emoticon
x 3 10 km run training emoticon
8+ glasses of water per day emoticon
No take away food, especially deep fried chips... emoticon
Even 8 hours sleep! emoticon
OMG! emoticon emoticon
And of course NO Smoking. emoticon (that is a long time streak but I can NEVER be complacent, sneaky nicotine addiction, bleaggggh!)

I just gotta consider cutting out alcohol again.


How have you been awesome this week?
