In It For The Long Run!

I have had a bit of an up and down week last week. I was a bit all over the place with my schedule and found myself really struggling to find motivation. I have been really busy with work the past couple of weeks and I am so tired by the time I get home. I find myself starting to make excuses and planning on cutting my runs short. I got home from work late last wednesday and for the 2nd week in a row decided not to get up for my Thursday morning run. While the week before I went out that evening this week I worked even later on Thursday and didn't make it out until Friday morning. I was tempted to just skip it but I am glad I got out. Friday's run was not my best, but I needed it.  Saturday was a planned rest day and I feel looking back that skipping Thursday's could be just the start of me giving up.

2 Week Countdown is On - Panic Stations

I am constantly surprised by how fast time is going by, and I was shocked to see a post on facebook today saying there was only 2 weeks left until the mini marathon....I was sure I had 3 weeks left. Despite the fact I only have 2 weeks to go I am feeling good. I have stuck to my training plan, and I have not missed a single training session (some have been rescheduled but none missed). This is the most consistently I have ever trained and no matter what time I get on the day I am proud of how far I have come.

Chicken & Bacon Pasta

It's dishes like these that make me really love filling and healthy! No weighing or calculating and a really delicious, comfort food dish that will most definitely keep you going. Despite the fact that pasta is free on F&H and SS, I like to try and keep an eye on the breakdown of my meals to ensure I am not overloading on carbs and am getting enough protein and some healthy fats and I have added weights to the recipe mostly for the purposes of propointing the recipe for anyone counting. Everything can be adjusted to suit taste/appetite.

April Roundup!

April came and went before I could even take notice! The older I get the faster the months go by and I am afraid if I blink it will be New Years! I suppose I should look on the positive side of things, I have completed another month of training and I am definitely getting fitter and stronger. There is no going back for me now!
