Happy Thursday, you have almost made it through the work week, just one more day. I thought it was about time I updated my blog since April.
Race Update: I’ve signed up for the Disney Princess Half Marathon on February 25 of 2018 in Disney World. This will be my second Disney Half and my 4th runDisney race. I have set a goal to be race ready for this half. In 2014 I ran my first Half Marathon, in Disney World. I had lost a lot of weight and felt really good about myself but was not ready at all for this race. My legs cramped up and at one point I was hyperventilating. However I did push myself to finish the race and earn that beautiful medal.
Training: So I’ve started my training for the half by running a little each week and trying to increase my speed. I am working on breathing correctly during runs so that I don’t give out so fast. This has always been a challenge for me. I have been working on my core through Beachbody workouts. I am currently in the middle of a Beachbody challenge with the “CORE DE FORCE” program. Next week I plan on getting back into the gym with a Kettle bell class and run club on Tuesdays. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday I plan on running with my sister and niece at our local rail trail.
Nutrition: I have been trying to only drink water throughout the day, cutting out the diet sodas and teas. As for my food I have been using the Beachbody portion control containers and following the food menu from the “SHIFT SHOP” program. My afternoon snack at work has been Shakeology – Greenberry. This gives me the pick me up I need in the afternoons at work.
Short Term: My goal is to increase my speed and run more miles.
Long Term: I would like to lose at least 30 pounds before February.
Thank you for reading my fitness journey hope you will continue to keep coming back for updates.
HAVE AN AWESOME DAY!! COMMENTS WELCOME!!
