Day 1--Nailed it.




As you all know I started my 10k training last night.


Pre run in my new SparklySoul headband

 It went a lot better than I had anticipated, mostly because I wanted to do anything but run.
Running is one of those things I hate to do but when it's over I feel like I could have gone

HARDER.FASTER.BETTER.STRONGER
...sorry Kanye

My ankle was bothering me for the first mile and a half, but then after awhile it seemed to accept the fact that it wasn't going to win the battle over my desire to run and let me finish.

I was SO happy with myself, can't you tell?

In fact I ran further than I had originally planned.
I am THAT hardcore.

Speaking of hardcore...I did my plank a day right after I came home and increased my time by 15 seconds. 
Not much, but I'll take it

As I was trying to decide what to eat for dinner (I went with cottage cheese and almonds) I saw a box on the counter for me.

 This little cutie patootie was inside.
Thank you Blender Bottle! I cannot wait to use her!



 I had a lot of trouble sleeping last night.
I passed out by 830 but was wide awake from 2-3:45ish, thus resulting in sleeping through my alarm for Bootcamp AND 2 phone calls from my mom trying to wake me up.

I slept in until 6:45.
I have to leave the house by 7:10 to catch my train.



Does anyone else have trouble sleeping?
I wake up almost every hour most nights, or I am up once for an extended period of time.
It sucks.

    1. Here's the thing, I really don't think that is the issue because I REALLY listen to my body. I take rest days all the time and have no problem skipping a workout if I am not into it. Maybe this is the issue but I'm starting to think it is something else? ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  2. I love it when you do more than you had originally planned. I get a workout high when I push more than I had originally planned (within reason...MizFit is right in the idea of overtraining). Wishing you a great Wednesday!

    1. It feels SO good to push past your limits. I just want to get into the place mentally where I am EXCITED for a run. I am SO not there yet

  4. Great job! Sometimes the hardest part of running is getting through the first day. You are well on your way to getting faster and stronger. Good luck on day #2 :)

    Ps... I had a really scary experience while running solo on Monday so please read my 5 tips on how to stay safe when running alone.

    1. Read it and omg that IS scary. I run in my neighborhood, with my phone AND everyone knows my route. I only run in daylight and close to home

  7. Way to knock out those 3 miles! Great job girl :)

    Girl I've been struggling w/ the sleep on my end too. I'm not sure what's going on, but lately I'm waking up around midnight and then again around 3ish. All I know is it's completely frustrating and I just want a good night's rest for a change.. grr!

  9. Nice work! A 15 sec improvement on your plank is impressive I think.
