Phew

9 Jun

After putting off my run all day, I finally went. It was a little hot (as you can tell), but a lot cooler than it was this afternoon. I really didnt’ feel like going today. I was feeling a little sore after doing Jillian Michaels DVDs and running two days in a row, but after a post-work nap, I bit the bullet. I also used my cute new running skirt as extra incentive.

(Self-conscious much? Check out that tiny mucle!) Kind of silly, but it did get me out of the house. I was even able to keep up my faster pace (well, close to it) while running the farthest to date. Woot. Woot.

Gratuitous sweaty shots? I’m considering doing a stint of daily food (b)logging on here as a sort of healthy eating experiment. I’ve got about two weeks before I head to my parents’ for my mom’s birthday (and I know that the chances of me eating super healthily while there are slim) and given my new dabbling in running, I thought it might be a good time to get myself on track. I logged my food today in my planner (because I am a nerd and still have one), but I haven’t decided on the format for the blog or even if I should really do it…Although I am leaning that way. Any thoughts?

    Friend o’ Kat here, she turned me on to your blog. I vacillate between Flexitarian and Vegan-ish, myself. LOVE the gratuitous sweaty shots, and keep on runnin’, woman! I would gladly follow your training and kitchen/recipe experimentation, as I’m beginning marathon training in just a few weeks and am currently struggling to make peace with food. So you’d have at least one interested, devoted follower (you’re already in my feed reader). My 2 cents. Cheers!

      Thanks! Wow, a marathon. I’m hoping to do a 5k this fall (I’m still pretty new to this running thing). I did a cursory check of races in my area this summer, but didn’t find much of anything. I think I’ll put together a food post this weekend when I have a little more time to write and pluck up my courage. I’m enjoying the silliness of the post-run shots so I think there’s a good chance that they’ll become a blog staple.

    Love your running skirt! Admire your dedication. Oh, by the way, I’m sure your Mother has some healthy food!!!

      Thanks, Mom. I’m sure you will have some healthy stuff at home, but I know that I will also consumer more than my fair share of crispy treats so…yeah.
