Exciting News!

I was contacted by Mike Lowe of ML Media and he asked if I'd like to be a featured blogger for the Manchester City Marathon! I'm wicked excited! I'll do my best to not bore you. 

Today was my first official day of training for the half marathon and it didn't go as planned. My Garmin wasn't charged, my Garmin didn't do my intervals for whatever reason, it was 93% humidity and I saw a frog get squished by a car. My left leg has been bothering me a bit so the last half of my three miles I pretty much walked. It sucked, but here's to a new week ahead!

To be honest, I think my all my times were pretty crappy this week. I had a difficult week at work this week and I think it just carried over to my runs. I stopped a lot to walk and got very frustrated. I did pretty decent in yoga though, I do feel a lot stronger since I started a few months ago. The instructors at One Heart Yoga are the best!

My schedule and times this week were:

Monday: Two miles 26:35 and yoga in the evening

Tuesday: Rest

Wed: Yoga in the evening

Thurs: Rest

Friday: Two miles 24:21

Sat: Yoga in the morning

Sun: Three miles 41:15

I'm trying hard to work on my diet as usual. I'm do pretty well, but getting those fruits and veggies in are always a challenge.

In other news, one of our dogs, Jager, is going blind. He is diabetic and has cataracts. He is pretty much blind in his right eye. Our vet assured us that his quality of life is good and that there is an option of surgery once he goes completely blind in both eyes. He is pretty much the same, except he has issues going up and down stairs. I think we are more upset bc we are realizing that he isn't a puppy anymore. He is the sweetest pup.

I'm also almost done my jungle/monkey mini quilt. I just have to sew the long strips together back to back, close up the sides, and wash it. It is coming along nicely! 

So, that is pretty much it for this week. My coach, Lou Ann, from Off To Run Personal Training will be sending me my training this week for my half marathon. I'm looking forward to seeing my schedule for the next couple of months and getting out for some long runs!
