As I've mentioned on here several times, I'm signed up to run my first half marathon in November. Now we're officially under the two month mark. How's training going, you ask? Well, I started on Monday. Yes, I know. Buuuut, I'm choosing to be positive about this situation. My only goal going into this was to finish so I'm sticking to it!
I haven't really ran since July. It's been a hot summer and the only time of the day I had to run was between 11-4. You know, the hottest time of day. So that just didnt happen. But now that it's cooling down, I'm back at it!
I decided to keep it easy on Monday just to test the waters…I probably could have ran further than a mile and now I'm kicking myself for not going further! However, I did run the entire mile without stopping!
When I was running I remembered how good it felt to run! I only wish my running buddy Liz wasn't all preggers and stuff (jk! I can't wait to meet Clay's BFF)! I do miss her so but I'm excited that my cousin Rachel is running the half too! She's gonna rock it- she's already on her fifth week of training!
Besides starting to run again, I started eating clean last month- well, for the most part! There have been a few slip ups but I can already tell I'm losing fat and I feel so much better! I really thought that eating clean was going to be hard but it's not. It just requires a bit of planning which I like doing anyway 🙂 Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing my favorite clean recipes!
That's all for now! Hopefully next week I'll have more training to report!
