We have been doing some serious traveling this “spring,” (in quotes because we just got 1.5″ of seriously not-melting-today snow last night) and the indulgences have caught up to me. Despite still running and lifting multiple days a week, I haven’t been giving it my all and I need to drop 7 pounds immediately.
When we got home from 10 days in Hawaii, I’d only gained 2.5 pounds, but then we left again to see my sister in Virginia. And we had a good time! Good food, more than one beer for the first time in OVER A YEAR (I had 4-5), cocktails, snacks, and only one day of running over 4 days pudged me up.
I’ve just finished my schedule for the next 6 weeks and it’s aggressive. It’s appropriate. It’s necessary.
I have a half marathon in 3 weeks and because of the weather, I’m behind on my long runs. I’m running a 10K next week because I couldn’t get trained for the half in time. I’m feeling so not ready.
I need to get ready.
Here I go!
