Sunday I woke up feeling like shit. My tummy hurt and I felt like I was getting a sore throat. I was tired all day, and ended up taking a nap for about two hours in the middle of the day. Dustin got home around six and said he felt like crap too, so we both sat like sickies on the couch and went to bed at 8.
What an eventful weekend! Wowzers, I'm falling asleep just typing all that. By the way, I did get a second wind yesterday for awhile and made a huge pot of homemade chicken noodle soup (just what the doctor ordered!). While that was cooking I made a smaller version of peach cobbler, which I proceeded to eat with a fury last night. I now feel the need to throw it out, because if I'm not careful I will eat the whole thing when I get home tonight.
I still don't feel 100% today but I'm going to get a workout in even if it kills me! I'm slacking on my Miles Challenge, and I have a weigh-in on Wednesday that I would really like to see a loss at! So I'll be kicking my ass again for a few days to see some results on the scale. And then I will start the cycle all over again so I can see results next week. And the next. And the next.
On a good note, I found out when the Haulin' Aspen Half Marathon is because they finally updated their website! The race is on Sunday, August 8, and as soon as I work out my budget for the next couple weeks, I'm going to sign up for it (it's only $35, but I have to be careful because of WEDDING). I'm pumped that they finally updated the site so I can sign up for it.
And someone please hold me accountable for signing up for it within the next few weeks!
Now I just need to finalize a training program for it! I've been doing some research on it and I've came up with a couple that I might modify for my personal taste. If anyone has any suggestions about it, I would love to hear from you!
Goals for the week (January 11-17):
- Drink 120 ounces of water every day.
- Get all of my miles in (and catch up from last few days) for a total of at least 18 miles.
- Eat smart. With all the miles I should be logging, make sure to eat enough, but not use it as an excuse to overeat!
- Work out budget so I can pay for my half-marathon.
- Finalize a half-marathon training program!
