First of all, thanks for listening to my post about my feet! I mentioned to my mom what the last post was about and she said, "People have to be pretty bored to want to read about that!" Thanks Mom!
But I said that I have some "blogger friends" who know that I run and work out and also try to eat healthy and get my weight back down. So my feet are a big impact in my life! And I know you all understand that and may be able to offer words of encouragement and advice. So thanks for reading and any support you have.
A quick update on my feet, I'm trying little things to make them feel better. The doctor insert thing didn't really work. In fact, I think it felt worse. I tried it for several days and the results were not good! So I bought something else that my dad uses and it definitely feels better than with the doctor's thing. It still hurts but is more manageable. I'll go with it for now!
But guess what time it is?? It's time to get serious again about my running! In a little over a month, I have the Chicago Shamrock Shuffle, which is an 8k. Then in May, I have a half marathon in Columbus. I've never done a half marathon this early in the season. I've also never run more than one half marathon in a calendar year! And this year, I have 3 planned. The one in Columbus in May, the one in Chicago in August, and the one in Omaha in September. All leading up to the Chicago Marathon in October!! It's a big year for me!
What I might do is record ANY run that I do on here starting with March. If it's a slow run, a long run, a short run...I'll record it. That way I can see where I am and how I'm doing. I'll also include an update on how I felt during the run.
The last 3 days have been great workout days for me. I haven't been motivated with the gym lately because of my foot and that, combined with not eating great, has caused me to gain...gain...gain! So now that I'm getting my workout back in order, I need to focus on my eating. Starting today. I'm tracking!
I know, you have all heard that before! But the key to success is to keep trying, right? What I have finally learned after 3+ years on weight watchers is that I'm a stress eater. I just found that out! Now that I know, maybe I can do something about it!
