Just a few quotes that come to mind during my half marathon training journey lately. This is really going to be the hardest thing I have personally ever done. I am hoping to crush it too. I have slowly been increasing my weekend runs. Last weekend I got a 10 mile run in and felt pretty good about it. Tomorrow I will do an 11 mile run! I have continued to do kettlebell strength training every weekday during the week as well as at least a 2 mile walk/run everyday. Here is My Workout Routine post from a few months ago if you haven’t read that one yet. I have started doing 2-3 mile stroller runs instead of walks the past couple weeks. A run with a double stroller and 70 lbs of boy weight is no joke! btw 😛 I am feeling confident that I can run the whole half marathon no problem, I am now just working on my 2nd goal of doing it in 2 hours. Probably isn’t much for regular runners out there but it will be very tough for me.^That wind tho 🙂 haha^
Anyway I thought I would share a little training update with you all. I feel like sharing my journey helps me stay on track if that makes any sense. I also hope to inspire others in their own fitness journeys. #Noexcuses !
I CAN DO THIS! 🙂
Until next week, XOXO.
