Too long, no post!

Thanks, sparkfriends, for commenting and getting me to blog again. :)

Things have been going pretty good. I've been tracking, I've been hitting my gym classes.

And.... I ran that half marathon last weekend!

It went much better than I could've expected - apparently experience can pay off for some things when training isn't as good as it should be. I ran 2:28:50 garmin time, 2:29:10 gun time (no chip timing) so another sub 2:30 marathon and only less than 2 min off my PR and all my fastest times from last year. I'm super thrilled honestly, considering the lead up to the race and the fact that I'm heavier than all of those races.


So I just need to get really fit and run another one so I can finally get a PR!

Today's class is CXWorx - really love that class.

I found out that BodyPump is actually on THURSDAY not WEDNESDAY but I WENT on the week I posted that schedule on Wednesday anyway, there wasn't a class I felt good about, so I went home, and I still went to BodyPump the next day!

I didn't go last week because although I figured I wouldn't PR my race (came pretty close!) I wanted to try my best, and didn't want to risk being too sore.

So now I have big races behind me, I have a race in late May, but it's a marathon relay so only 6.3 miles for my leg - I don't have to worry about running so much, and can really embrace my tactics. I already had, but I worried about the half marathon. Now I can do it with no worries.

I'm still not pregnant, but my period is becoming regular so that is REALLY good news. Hopefully soon my skin can kinda get under control. It doesn't look SO bad, but I'm not used to it having ANYTHING going on so it's very annoying to me.

I think that covers everything. I'll probably try weighing in again a week on the other side of my period.

    Congrats on a great HM!!! WTG!

    Also, good news that you are so regular. It took me a few years to get regular after going off BC (NBD as I wasn't trying to get pregnant).

    Don't be a stranger!

    When I stopped my BC pills in attempt to get pregnant, my skin also went haywire! Hormones are such a huge factor to clear skin (see Teenagers! LOL)
    I hope all clears up soon and that your period being regular is a very good sign!!!

    HUGS to you!!!
