So I have this thought that as I’m going through my half marathon training that I would keep the world of the internet updated with my training. Let’s give this a try!
As previously stated, this is my first ever half marathon. I also just really don’t enjoy running all that much. But I was a bit antsy for my run the other day, and that’s never happened before. I was excited and wanted to run. I want to be able to prove to myself that I can do it.
This week wasn’t too difficult – although it is only week 1. Monday and Wednesday were both 30 minute runs. Both of them I did a run/walk combo and covered roughly a 2 mile distance each time. (Again, please keep in mind that Saturday is the first time I went running in like, I don’t know, 2 years…).
Tuesday and Thursday we cross train. That meant a 30 minute yoga sesh one day. And a 30 minute core workout the other. Tuesday I wasn’t feeling it. I was tired and just wanted to skip the workout. Some how I managed to convince myself to do it. I felt great afterwards. All stretched out and calm and relaxed. It was amazing!
This week I also joined CHAARG. CHAARG is an amazing community of young women who enjoy exercising or want to improve their habits. It’s so inspiring to see what people can do, whether it be eat clean on a budget or waking up 5:30 in the morning to go for a run and hit the gym. I’m so excited for the Spring Break Fit Plan to happen! It’s going to be crazy but definitely a positive part of my half training.
They say it takes 3 weeks of consistently doing something to form a habit. Well here’s to week 1! Only 2 more to go to form a habit.
What’s your favorite way to exercise?!
