My workouts this week have been interesting. Monday I ran one mile without walking. It took almost 16 minutes. I have to say that sucks, BUT I'm kind of excited that I could run a mile without walking. Sure, I was slow, but I'm so early in the game that I don't really care.
However, the last three days have been torture. What can I say, I'm so out of shape that I felt pain for three long days. Mainly in my legs, but that's to be expected.
Since I'm getting back into this workout thing I realized I'm pathetically out of lung capacity and cardio ability.
So while I still plan to run a couple of times a week (for now), I need to boost my fitness. I signed up for BlackFire with Bob Harper.
I'm not affiliated with Bob or BlackFire or Daily Burn in any way, shape or form. So this info is not sponsored by anybody other than me. :)
This program is for 60 days, but the first 30 are free. The next month is $12.95. Woot again! They tout it's "only 20 minutes a day" but of course when you add in the warmup and cooldown, it's longer. No problem. I'm ready for Bob. I love Bob. Look at this face, how can you not love this face? smooches.
I have ten weeks until I start my official half-marathon training plan. If I can't boost my fitness level after 30 days of this, I may as well hang up my running shoes.
I did try something new this week in food. I bought Garden Vegetable Spring Rolls from Whole Foods. Pretty good. It's basically a tiny salad in a rice roll I suppose. Naturally I liked the tiny dressing which I'm sure had some sugar. It tasted kind of like cracked pepper jelly.
