I love reading other people’s blogs. It may be because their lives seem more interesting than mine at the moment, or it may be because I just like seeing how other people live… Either way I’m sitting here in my yoga pants bundled up in my SU blanket with a cup of coffee watching Grey’s Anatomy catching up on all the blogs I read.
Since I’m still on break I don’t feel guilty at all that all I’ve done today was wake up, eat breakfast, run 8 miles and then weigh in at Weight Watchers. I’m down .5 which is most definitely better than a gain, but it really bums me out that it wasn’t more. Last week they suggested I eat more and this obviously freaked me out. But I really think I may need to eat even more than I did last week. I’m going to be eating more, but more of the good stuff like healthy oils and fats rather than loading up on junk. Marathon training totally has changed my weight. I’ve read a ton of places people have actually gained weight during training and that others say either pick training or pick losing weight- don’t do both. Well I’m gunna keep trying to do both hahaha.
My friend Tana (my blogger buddy over on tumblr http://tanadoeslife.tumblr.com/) and I were talking about our year of races and which ones we are going to run. She suggested that we run the Las Vegas Marathon together and I’m seriously considering it. A couple weeks ago my grandma told me she would “sponsor” my Disney Marathon…so that’s a def. So far we’re looking atttt
Feb 20th- Ottawa Marathon
March 13th- Celebrate Life Half Marathon
May 29th – Either Buffalo Marathon or Vermont City Marathon
then I need to find some more for the summer
Then depending on what I do in the fall (soccer again or if I do xc) I really want to do the new Syracuse Marathon in October.
Dec 4th- Las Vegas Marathon w Tana!
Jan 8th- DISNEY MARATHON!!!!!!!
That’s that for now.
This is my pup who is just about as tall as the snow on our back porch today!
Q- What races are you going to do this year? What are you excited about for the new year of 2011??
