Marathon Training & Weigh In

Happy to report that my ankle has been feeling much better. Not perfect, but better. I did my long run Saturday and then took Sunday off. 

I did a Labor Day 5k on Monday with my neighbor. I was not worried about my time and only needed the mileage. I stayed with my friend for the entire race trying to encourage her. This was her second 5k and she had her fourth baby two months ago!! I remember when a 5k was difficult for me! My running group put on the 5k and it was nice to support our only fundraiser. It was super humid and warm but I enjoyed it:)

I have been so busy the past few days!!

Sunday my husband and I went to the movies and saw Lawless. Not great, but not terrible. My husband enjoyed the movie and I enjoyed the candy!

I did some Fall decorating

I had to get this guy to the vet!!

My sweet sister sent these to me a work yesterday!! She just wanted to put a smile on my face:) It worked!!

This is not easy for me to post!! What the heck?? I have had several people tell me that I can expect some weight gain during marathon training. Honestly, this is not what I expected!! I do not think this gain has much to do with my training. Looking back over the past week, I can think I several things that I just ate because I felt like it. More stress eating then marathon eating!!!

My food journal for today 9/5.

First timer! I worked until 6pm today, so around 4, I walked over to Starbucks for my tea refill(4th of the day) and they offered me a free drink. I have heard so many people rave about this drink that I had to give it a try. It was really really good!!!

My husband has different work hours now, so our dinner is much later then I am use to. Not sure how this will work out since most nights its just him and I. I may have to start eating earlier, before he gets home. I have gotten so use to eating around 5 or 5:30. Eating around 7:30 is a big difference!!

I hope to try out a new yoga studio tomorrow afternoon. I really think that this will be good for me and it has been about a year since my last yoga class. I will let you know how it goes!!! Tomorrow I hope to post about my future goals:)

I am so looking forward to Fall weather!! Uggs, hoodies, hot chocolate and bonfires!

  1. So happy to hear that the ankle is still holding up. Your fall decorating looks great! It is so hot down here, it is hard to think about fall, but I am sooooo ready for a little change in the weather. Even a few degrees would be most welcome. Hang in there with the weight and don't worry too much about the number. It will drop right off this week :o) Have a healthy day! p.s. Your dog is adorable!

  3. I know how frustrating the scale can be! But - you look great and you're healthy - that's what really matters. (I need to take my own advice!)
