As some of you may know, I am training to participate in a half-marathon next month and have been following a training regimen. Today was the day to do 10 miles, my highest number of miles yet. And I did it! In just a couple minutes over 2 hours, with running 4 minutes and walking 2 minutes, repeated. The last two miles were tough and some of the hills were killer, but I did it!
I followed that up by going biking with my husband and some friends this afternoon, and biked 23 miles in about 2 hours. My quads were feeling quite sore by the end but I actually enjoyed myself and was able to keep a good pace without feeling like I was overdoing it.
And then tonight we went to a charity bowling event. Unfortunately my bowling skills are not up to par with my running and biking. I only managed to break a hundred once out of three frames.
I had my weigh-in at WW on Friday and made the 75lbs lost milestone. My leader asked me what was different between now and when I started. Honestly, looking better and fitting in smaller clothes is great, but I LOVE that I can push my body to do things now that I could never have imagined doing a year ago. It is such a great feeling!
