Thank you all for your comment on my last post. It indeed might be my half marathon training that I’m gaining a bit right now. But I can make better choices in what I eat and that’s what I’m going to do from now on. I’m not going to follow a diet, I’ve been doing all kinds of diets for the past 10 years and it didn’t work. I’m still a strong believer in eating healthy combined with exercise and have a treat every now and then. The problem is that there were too many treats the past weeks 🙂
We had such a beautiful day yesterday, nothing but sunshine and clear blue sky. I walked for an hour with Bella and you could see people walking and biking all around you. Everybody took advantage of this beautiful day. I also sat in my garden almost the entire afternoon to read, there was no wind and it was lovely in the sunshine.
I had to do 8K (5 miles) today and I did …. 0!
Do I have an excuse? Not really!
I couldn’t run this morning because I was alone. Bella still barks and screams when you leave her and I couldn’t take the risk she would do that if I went out for a run at 5.15 am. She would wake up the neighbours.
I had decided to run after work, but you all know how much I “like” that. It was on my mind all day that I had to run and not because I looked forward to it but because I didn’t want to. On top of that I thought I was smart by wearing ballerina’s instead of heels but at the end of the day my feet were much more tired than when I walk on heels all day.
Once again I have proven myself I’m not a after work runner, it just isn’t working for me and I won’t plan or do it anymore, at least not for any runs above 5K (3 miles).
It is my recovery week which means no long run, tempo run or speedwork this week and I’m okay with missing one run this week. I will do the other runs of this week according schedule and I will do them early in the morning before work.
