The reality of running my first marathon is really starting hit home. I have a short 72 days left! Yikes!! My runs have been feeling really great lately apart from the occasional, tougher than it really should be run. But those happen and I am ok with that!!
Monday I had more strides mixed in with a 3 mile run and did them at a 7:31 pace this week and could feel myself working a little harder than last week so I am glad I moved up the speed. I did struggle with my 5 miler last night. I had a few, I am almost in tears and can’t breathe moments, due to having a extremely stressful day and just needing to let it go. Other than that the run was great! I did have to really be careful when I had those bad moments, once I literally had to stop and just breathe so my chest would relax. Yay for stress right!? When I was done running I looked at my overall time and was like….what??!!! That can’t be right. But when you are on a treadmill you have to wait for it to slow down and speed up which takes up time. I was running at either 9:40 or 9:31 pace the whole time but my average for the run ended up showing 9:55, I know better so I am ok with that too!
I tried out some of my new gear from Wantable
during my runs on Monday and Wednesday and I can say they are sooooo comfy! I loved the feel and support they all gave me! So glad I discovered this service! What runner doesn’t want new clothes? I have heard of Fabletics too but haven’t tried that one yet.
I have been feeling much better when it comes to my energy level this week. I have been making sure to drink my Greens
every day along with taking my ThermoFit
and I feel so much better than I did a few weeks ago! My energy level is up and the cravings for all things sweet are subsiding! <–Huge deal right there, I have had a full pack of Oreos at home for a week and a half! (they usually only last about 3 days!)
