...you can run a half."
Yup, I heard this on Sunday.
I think I may begin training for the May Mississauga Half in January (20 weeks is a good timeline, right?).
January is perfect timing because my Cardio Sculpt class will be finished as will the kid's parent and tot swimming class, so I'll have time to dedicate to running. I'll join a program as well for sure!
As long as work doesn't get in the way.
This week has been okay, but I haven't run as much as I wanted to. Sunday, I hosted 8 ladies for a cupcake exchange (CampCupCake)
Who runs after an afternoon of sampling nine different cupcakes? Not me! Nope, I eat pizza, more cupcakes and drink wine.
Monday I ended up working late and not getting home and eating until 8:30, so I didn't run. Tuesday I went to Curves at lunch and the aforementioned Cardio Sculpt at 7pm (which had lots of Cardio, just not running). Wednesday, I worked late. AGAIN (you'd think I perform kidney transplants or something, but nope, I work in marketing). Today I went to Curves and came home and ran 5.15k before dinner on the treadmill.
It was difficult for sure. The 6pm news is not easy to run to (perhaps because I can't stand Christine Bentley). I did eat an apple 30 minutes before my run, so I wasn't lacking in energy or anything, the run was just tough and my right leg/knee was twinging.
I wish I didn't commute almost 3 hours a day, I'd love to run right after work way more often.
So, a low-key week (with exercise, but not a lot of running - yet) and a plan (kinda).
Amazing what a good race will do for you!
Thanks for the comments in my race report. I'm still on the high!
