I did a 4 mile treadmill run today while watching Spirit of the Marathon for the 12th time! Today went well for me. I had a yogurt for breakfast, veggies and rice for lunch, and a pasta dish for dinner. My legs feel good today. Yesterday's rest helped me out a lot.
I do have to say that the treadmill is getting pretty old....I would much rather be hammering on the roads but with the current weather conditions that would not be very wise.
I am pretty satisfied with my progress this week so far. I have stuck to my plan for eating, drinking, and exercising. I know that not all weeks will go this smoothly for me. Stress at work, home, and the weather are going to be ongoing challenges for me along the way. I just have to remind myself how good it feels to stay on track and push through the negative to achieve my goals.
My blog will follow my running journey up to and through my 1st Marathon... Chicago 2010! You will read about my inspirations, PRs (hopefully!), and of course my struggles. So feel free to share your stories as well!
