Ugh. Up a pound today. I thought I'd have a pound or two down today. I was yesterday... stupid scale. Oh well, there's always next Monday, right?
Moving on -
My new shoes have been just as wonderful as I thought they would be! I've got 4 miles on them so far, and I am not disappointed. I am sweating so much though that I lose focus about 25 minutes in, and then I want to stop. I keep forgetting to grab a towel, so I am just wiping it all away with my hand or the bottom of my t-shirt, but it's just not cutting it. I've been looking into some sweat management options though.
I have a new goal to add to my list -
I want to run 365 miles in 2011. Yep, one mile for every day of the year. I am at 16.23 miles for the year so far. My week + off hasn't helped me stay on track, but I am going to make it, I know I am! Over on the right side bar, there's a little widget that is so very kindly keeping track of my miles, both for 2011 and total. You can follow along if you like.
I have a new running plan, too. I am going to start running Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Fridays I am going to try to lengthen my runs, and try to get to 3.1 miles (or a 5k :) ) each week, and then on Saturdays I will do a shorter recovery run. I am excited to start pushing my running again. I still haven't settled on the 5k I want to run... seems like every time I find one that I am excited about, it turns out that Brian has to work that weekend. :( But I am determined to get one under my belt SOON!
As we only have a week left in January (how is this possible!?!?), I have been spending a little time reflecting on the month, and everything that I have accomplished. I am so proud to not only have finished the C25k, but also kept running. Running is a part of who I am now, and I don't think I would have it any other way. What have you done this month to make YOU proud? Please share with us, either here on the blog or on the 2 Fat Chicks Facebook page. Looking forward to hearing from you!
