As many of you know I have decided to train a half marathon. This will be my second attempt. The reason I chose to run another half is because I want to run a better time. My goal this time is to run 21.1km in under two hours (1:58:00 - 1:59:00) beating my last time of 2:24:25.
I've started week two of my training schedule. Last week I ran 21.5km this week it jumps to 35.5km. I am feeling tired and I'm trying to curve my cravings to not to eat more. But all in all it is going well. I'm running four times a week as well as core workouts three times a week. I am seeing a difference in my body, I'm *hoping* to loose my last 20lbs, but I have to be realistic and know that I may not loose the weight I want to loose. Training for a marathon is very taxing on your body and you tend to build muscle.
I'm just glad that I am still running and being fit - ultimately that is my goal -- to keep moving and making healthier choices when it comes to food :)
