I did it. I ran 42 miles in the month of February- which was exilerating! I certainly pushed myself hard, starting with a .73m run at the beginning of the month while trying to break in my shoes, and making it up to 7m on the 23rd. Following Hal Higdons running plan for this race has been a complete failure, BUT I’m going to post up his calender plan in prep for my May 1/2 marathon to make THAT race as painless as possible!
I’ve only got a couple more weeks of “winter running” left… (it was 80F yesterday for my run), and then I’m buying myself the cutest pink shorts from LuluLemon (Run Tracker Short). I’d buy them today if they would only bother to carry them so I could BUY them – I mean, c’mon! I’m in love with the style and the color and it’s a NEED to run in them for my first 1/2 marathon. I’m kinda getting worried they won’t carry them in time for my race =( Well, since it’s March, it’s time to go over my March Goals.
- Run 60 miles (total) this month
- Finish the Shamrock 1/2 Marathon
- Go rock climbing (maybe for my birthday!?)
- Eat Breakfast EVERYDAY
- Smile and Laugh every day!
- Take the time to make
goodhealthy meals, three times per week
- Stop. Take time to journal. I feel so much more balanced when I journal.
It’s not just about running, it’s about balancing a healthy lifestyle. It’s not about losing wieght, it’s about being comfortable in the skin you are in. If we are maintaining a healthy lifestyle, our body weight will settle in a place that’s healthy for us!
