50 Total Miles (since starting training)!!!
So tonight I reached 50 total miles logged since joining DailyMile and beginning the training for the half marathon! I have logged 14 miles this week (a record since starting) and am feeling great! Today was supposed to be a "rest" day but since I rested so much last week I figured it would be okay to not take it. I've been watching a lot of "Biggest Loser" lately and it is so inspiring. I want to lose weight too (an undisclosed amount...don't want too much pressure!) but obviously not as much as those contestants. But if they can lose hundreds of pounds, why can't I drop the ones that are bugging me? So I figure with the running and eating more fruits/vegetables, that will help a lot. I'm also considering taking some boxing classes at LA Boxing, although I need to look into things such as pricing. Anyway, instead of taking a rest day, I walked for 5 miles, varying the incline. It felt great and I didn't strain myself. I walked in my EasyTones (which I love) and watched Biggest Loser on my iPhone. All in all? Great way to end the day!
