Half marathon training is going well!
Not as great as I would have hoped, but it's still going at least!
I haven't given up! :)
I have missed a couple of runs, but I always pick back up the next time.
I have done 2 long runs so far. Last Saturday was 4 miles and then I missed this Saturday, so I ran my long run last night (Sunday) of 5 miles! I was pretty proud when I finished. :)
When I did another 4 mile run last Wednesday, I misjudged time and ended up running home staring at this...
Glad I misjudged! It was beautiful!
That was my first long run to have Sophie with me in the jogging stroller and let me just say...It did not go well. After about a mile in she got cranky...and it just got worse...Plus since the sun was setting, the wind started to pick up and it was getting colder. I felt so bad, because the wind was hitting her face so hard it was startling her! So I moved the canopy in front of her face, but that made her mad because she couldn't see anymore lol. Needless to say, I haven't taken her out again. BUT I just ordered a jogging stroller cover to keep the wind off of her and she can still see out! I hope it works and keeps her happy! My long runs are becoming longer and I'm not sure I continue to do them at 10 at night. I'm so slow, I'll be out there all night! Can't wait for the cover to get here! :)
On my 5 mile last night, I started out on the "Dreadmill". It was awful. I hated it...So after 1.3 miles...I went outside to finish. Much better decision! :) I was very sluggish at first and I decided at 2.5 miles that I wanted to try a GU. I want to incorporate them in my training, so I can be prepared on race day. It really made a difference! I couldn't believe it! I actually got some energy back and finished the 5 miles pretty strong! :) The only thing I didn't like about the GU, is it' so darn sticky! I will be trying a different brand this weekend for my 6 mile run. It's supposed to be sugar free...We will see if it's any good lol. I do absolutely LOVE NUUN though!
I've had the Lemon Lime before, but I just bought Strawberry Lemonade and it is soooo good! This will definitely be my hydration drink of choice! :)
And in non running news...My little princess has started crawling forward now! It's crazy! She's not supposed to be big enough for that yet! She will actually be 7 months old tomorrow...I can't believe it!
