Sorry about the lack of meal planning. There was a plan but with the excitement surrounding my trip to New Orleans it went to heck. This week hasn't been any better! I promise to be back on track and blogging on Sunday!
The half-marathon went great...well up until I did something to my ankle at mile 7. I still managed to finish in 2:35! Not as fast as my first one, but not too shabby with an injury either! My bff and I had a great time hanging out in NOLA! I have been on seafood overload! :)
I am so addicted to running these now. But having said that, I need a break. So I am going to take a few months off and just run some 5/10ks! The training was getting to me this time. I felt like I wasn't able to give it my full attention which is something that ends up hurting you in the end. Perhaps, that is why I am limping around rather than running right now. I also want to remember why I love to run. Training makes it a "have to" situation and not a "want to" situation. I want to go out on a beautiful day and run because I can! I am pretty damn proud of myself for finishing two half-marathons in 6 months! A break is earned, right?
I'll be back training this summer/fall for the RNR STL in Oct and maybe the Diva run in Nov. I can't wait to get back at it! Next up: St. Patty's Day 5-miler...well if my ankle is up to it next Saturday!!
