sleeping in

This morning I slept in! If you know me you will know that 7:00am is the latest during the week I ever sleep, but today class was canceled and I didn't have to be in to work till 1:00. So this means I slept till 9:00am and boy did i need it. Once awake this morning I found that I kind of felt like lead. I hoped that as I started my run that I would begin to loosen up. I had never tried this method of working through stiffness this way.

This morning following my 9:00am wake up call I went for my 4 mile run. It was nice paced in the beginning and slowed a little while I continued.

It was a slow go but like I have said a million times  (to remind myself) this first half marathon is about getting to the finish line in one piece and feeling good about it. My goal is to finish somewhere around 3hrs. I know I can do it I just have to keep running. I also think I need to start cross training more (or at all really) 

On a different note i think I am going to abandon the scale and order a dress to wear to the opening of a musical after thanksgiving. I am going to work on feeling good in my skin instead of what the numbers say. I will write more about this later, I just wanted to let you guys in on my secret. 



  1. I am all for abandoning and smashing that scale in! :) Everyday I'm working on feeling comfortable, confident, and happy in my own skin. A number shouldn't get us feeling up or down.

    Good run by the way!

    1. Thanks! I am learning quickly that numbers are numbers but the important part is how you feel about yourself
