Today's eats maybe weren't the best...there was vanilla icecream consumed first thing.
My flat was so hot this morning that I couldn't stomach cooking, I was out of smoothie ingredients - so icecream it was!
Lunch was chili/bean soup and three of my homemade chicken tenders.
Dinner was roasted aubergine/peppers marinated in harissa paste and served over couscous.
I wanted to run 5 miles today, but I just wasn't fueled up properly I think. I went before dinner, so all I'd had was soup and icecream - note to self, soup and icecream may not get you through 5miles round the park!
I stopped to walk twice, but still made it in 1 hour, 5 minutes - I'm a slow runner, what can I say! 5mph is my go-to speed. It doesn't seem to matter the distance I'm going, it always averages out to be 5mph nevermind if I think I'm doing a shorter, faster run or a longer, slower run - I just can't seem to help it!
Now, it's time for bed. It's my turn to be in the office early this week, so have to leave at 6am tomorrow.
So, last night after a particularly good 6k run...I did something a little crazy.
Now, keeping in mind that I only started running in January and have never entered a race before, I have been seriously toying with the idea of running the London marathon. To the point that when the ballot opened, I registered. I figured that it would be a sign if I got in that I was meant to do it.
But for the past two weeks I've been obsessed with the idea of the Sony Ericsson 'run to the beat' half marathon in September.
I started this journey January 1st, 2009 at 220lbs.
After following the Couch-to-5k programme I officially caught the running bug and ran my very first half-marathon in September.
I lost 25lbs in 2009 and now my goal for 2010 is to finish Project 55 and get down to my goal weight of 165. Only 30lbs to go!
I'm also running another half-marathon in October and hoping to beat last year's time of 2:37
