1/2 Marathon- Week 1 Training So Far...

This is week one of my 1/2 marathon training. It has been such a FUN and overwhelming week. Not just because of the training, but because I have been working like crazy to get my Valentine's Day cards made and sent out...finished them yesterday, and they are out in the mail, hopefully to be delivered today, plus making Valentine's for my son's daycare for today and making chocolate covered pretzels with sprinkles for him to give his buddies.

So, I started out the week with running 3 miles on Monday, took Tuesday off, did Body Combat at the gym on Wednesday, did Body Pump and a 3 mile run at the gym on Thursday, another off night tonight, weights at the gym on Saturday, finishing with my 5 mile group run outside on Sunday. I feel pretty good about everything...the runs so far have been fun, and my body feels great! I wish I could perfect my eating, but I guess that will come with time...maybe!
I always start out the week doing sooo good...counting my points etc, and then something comes up throughout the week (like that huge, yummy, frisbee sized chocolate chip cookie from Panara Bread yesterday at work) and then it screws up my whole week...Oh well, it was YUMMY!

Well, I just ordered my first Bondiband. I have been going back on forth on whether or not to buy one, and then I found an awesome fundraiser on Long Legs on the Loose's Blog, where she is raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. For every Bondiband that is purchased, a portion goes to her fundraiser. How fun! So, I ordered the super cute, Boot Camp Babe one. If I like it, I will for sure be back for more!!!

So, I hope the training stays as positive as it has started! I am mentally where I want to be, and I know that physically I will get there! Can't wait for our run on Sunday...I love running outside and with friends!!!
