That is the time between now and my half-marathon.
Between the holidays, my trip to Kansas, and a nasty cold I have not completed a long run in 2 weeks.
It’s time to get serious, write out a solid plan of attack, and book my flight!
This morning I bought a bunch of new music to get me motivated and headed out into the cold to see what my lungs could handle. Turns out that cough of mine made things a bit difficult and I turned my scheduled 4 miles into a 3.75 walk/run.
Not mad about it.
I plan to spend a lot of time stretching and planking today and then trying that run again tomorrow!
Last night I made a big batch of tomato bean soup to help ward off the cold.
Gross picture, great soup!
I figure having a big pot of soup at the ready will prevent me from mindlessly snacking on processed foods. I didn’t make any new years resolutions this year, but I know that I over-indulged during the holidays and will feel better by making healthier choices. The scale reads pretty much the same as it did before I left which I attribute to my cold killing my appetite.
Question: Did you make any new year’s resolutions?
