New Year's Resolution

Had a realllllllllly tough time running today. Only got through two 3-minute intervals. My legs were burning, yes, but it was more that I couldn't breathe!

Ugh, New Year's Resolution to Stop Smoking - nice to meet you again! Haven't seen you in a year. Then a year before that. Then another year before that.

Stupid Humans

I challenge you to watch Food, Inc. and NOT come away a vegetarian. I can't even finish typing this because I'll get preachy and judgmental, and who wants that? Just trust me - watch it. It's good for your soul.

Week 3, Workouts 1 and 2 went splendidly! Can't wait to run again tonight!

Unexpected Challenges

Well, last night was a little difficult. Perhaps it was because I had taken 2 days of rest rather than 1? Or, I'll admit - I caved in to the disgusting habit of smoking yesterday a few times before the run. In any case, I finished Week 2 Workout 3, but didn't feel as great about it as I had been.

What inspired me to keep going yesterday was the knowledge that SP is doing this with me, so I need to stick with it.

Is it bad to run everyday? I love the high after a run, so why do I need to rest between them? Plenty of people run everyday, don't they?

Couch to 5K Podcast

I'm running along with Robert Ullrey's Couch to 5K podcast. Download it from iTunes! It's great. I've even grown to enjoy the music...

My running is going swimmingly (hehe)! I was dying last week - simply dying. Then I did my 4th workout last night and it was a pure breeze. I don't know why, but my body seems to be responding to the training ... I'll take it!

It's so exciting to see the changes in my body right now. My legs are getting more toned, I have less of a belly than I did just 2 weeks ago, and every time I see someone they are commenting on how I lost more weight. I'm not sure if it's the low-carb diet, vegan diet, Couch to 5K programcutting down on salt, or a combination of all of it - but something is working and it's working well ;)

Gotta stick with it. Have a good weekend everyone!
