In just ten short weeks I will be in San Diego for the Rock and Roll Half Marathon. This will be my second half marathon. My major concern when training for the Disney Princess Half Marathon was that I finish. Now that I know I can complete a half marathon, it’s time to work on getting a PR. Getting a PR should not be to hard because I stopped for so many pictures in the Princess. Even is I run at the same speed, I will still get a better time in San Diego.
One thing that has concerned me is that I have not done any runs past a 5k since the Princess. That ends tomorrow! I will be doing six miles in the morning and begin following the Jeff Galloway plan. It worked great for me the first time, so I feel confident it will work for me again.
So far, Weight Watchers has been going well. I have been working on finding low points meals and snacks. I did find these cupcakes in the bakery at my local grocery store that are just 3 PointsPlus each. I find that eating a fruit or veggie at each meal has helped me stay full.
This has been a week of refocus to me. I found a few great articles I wanted to share with you. One was on Active.com about ways to improve your half marathon training and the other is from Runner’s World about how to use running to help you lose weight. I am ready to get working on my next half marathon!
Have you ever went through a refocus period? What promted it and how did it work for you?
A dream is a wish…
