If you’ve been reading my blog since the beginning I wouldn’t blame you if you rolled your eyes when you read this blog title. I’ve made this declaration at least once or twice and have yet to stick with it. With that being said, I still have a desire to “get ‘er done”. I don’t know why…it’s just something I want to do. I want to (be able to say I’ve) run a half marathon. So, I’ve created a training plan that’s doable but will still challenge me and (hopefully) keep me motivated to keep moving (literally) towards the end goal…13.1 miles. As I told Josh, even if they take down the finish line before I get there I’m going to finish.
I plan on completing the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in DC on March 14th, 2015. I’m doing my best to recruit my mom and/or Jordana (Josh’s sister). We’ll see how it goes. I have no intention of running the whole thing…it’s just not my style. I enjoy running most when I’m wogging (walking/jogging), so that’s the plan. Those who have completed half marathons before, help me out!!! Feel free to comment below with any tips for training, race day, or modifications I should make to the training plan above.
Okay, now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk food and fitness from the day
My Morning and Afternoon
I started my day with a green juice which included 2 carrots, 2 apples, 1/2 cucumber, 1 sq. in. ginger and kale.
For lunch I had leftovers from last night, Simply Taralynn’s Mexican Spaghetti Squash (we reduced the amount of cheese).
And later on as a snack I had some carrots, pretzels and hummus.
I got out of work at a reasonable time but there were two horrible accidents on my way home from work. It definitely wasn’t the most relaxing drive, but luckily I made it home safely.
Once I finally got home I got changed into my running clothes. It was later and darker than I wanted so I didn’t want to venture out too far – 2 miles was good enough for me!
After my run I cleaned up around the house for just a bit before heading to Moe’s with Josh to pick up a quick dinner. I went with a junior burrito (no rice, no cheese).
For dessert I’m thinking I’ll have an apple pie Lara bar. I hope you have a fabulous night!
Question of the Day
Any tips for my half marathon?!
