Fail. Apparently, I am not capable of posting once a week or even once a month. I won't dwell on my inability to update. How about I just fill you in on my life?
Life has been great! Extremely busy but fabulous at the same time. I haven't been focusing on my weight loss nearly as much as I should but I am still exercising and seeing my trainer and trying to eat right. Ms. All-star and I celebrated one year of working out together back in June! It's amazing how attached I have gotten to the pain-in-my-ass! I've grown a lot in the last year and push this body to all sorts of new heights.
Speaking of new heights...I am training for my first half-marathon in October. I signed up for the Rock-n-Roll St. Louis race. It was time to really test my love for running. Do I have it in me to accomplish this goal? I've made it to week 5 of the training. I amaze myself every time I set off to run. My goal is to finish and not worry about time. I want to run across the finish line and not crawl! I am only running three days a week so that I can still train 2x, swim 2x and get a night off! It's working out pretty well except all the runs keep getting longer, lol! Today was a pace day but still an hour long session. I knocked out 5.45 miles. Pretty proud of my progress!
I've been attending a running clinic hosted by the physical therapy department where I work. They are helping me correct my stride and stance to alleviate pain on my hip. It is really helping so far and this reminds me that I need to schedule a follow-up! :) It's weird to watch yourself run and then have someone critique it. It really has been a huge help in my training and keeping me running with only minimal pain.
I hope all of blogosphere is still well! Until next time....
