my low-key half-marathon “training plan”…a.k.a. “laziness keeps making me start over”

Seriously, y’all. What happened to all my motivation of a year ago? I ran four times a week, I ate healthy, I was totally focused on being healthier. Fast forward to now, and it’s all I can do to finish like 5 things on my to-do list, much less everything. Ha. As if. I’ve been… Continue reading my low-key half-marathon “training plan”…a.k.a. “laziness keeps making me start over”

weekly workouts #4

I need an accountability partner. In my eating choices. My workouts. Life. That’s kind of the point of these posts: I’m basically physically lazy, and if I don’t keep myself accountable, I’ll totally slack off and slop around the apartment. Which is kind of what happened since last fall. I was doing great:  running regularly,… Continue reading weekly workouts #4

weekly workouts #3

This week has been pretty “meh” as far as workouts go. In other words, I’ve been feeling pretty lazy. Sigh… Monday:  worked 14 hours or so for a total of 13,282 steps (6.29 miles). Tuesday:  Holiday. Obviously. Wednesday:  worked 12.5 hours for a total of 11,743 steps (5.56 miles). Thursday:  strength training + ran 2… Continue reading weekly workouts #3

when a mile feels like a marathon

Six months ago, I ran six miles like it wasn’t a big deal. (Not like super fast or anything, but I ran it without stopping or passing out.) Then I was injured for 3 months. Then I started trying to run again, and life and laziness kept getting in the way. So, here I am… Continue reading when a mile feels like a marathon

the past week’s workouts

Starting over fitness-wise sucks. (Also any other-wise. Just sayin’.) I’ve been struggling to get back into running, without hurting my leg again, and while combating several months’ worth of inertia. (UGH.) I’m signed up for the Route 66 half-marathon in Tulsa in November, plus the Mammoth Race 5k Trail Run in October, so I have… Continue reading the past week’s workouts

week in review: I survived

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets to get my list on. I survived last week. This is a major accomplishment. My uncle’s funeral was last Wednesday, and all of my family was in town/bunking with Baby Brother and I. It was fantastic seeing them all, and this guy on his fourth… Continue reading week in review: I survived

week in review: MIA

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for this one. It’s been like 3 weeks since I’ve posted on here, and a month since I’ve done a Week in Review post. Oops. So, what’s been going on? My staycation went well:  I did a deep clean of the apartment, one room per… Continue reading week in review: MIA
