So the second week of training went MUCH better than the first week. I think I have my mindset squared away and focused. Although we experienced some excessive heat here in the Midwest, I still managed to get most of my training in. I’m excited for my small group personal training session tomorrow because we have weigh-ins and measurements to check on our progress. According to my scale, I’m down close to 10 pounds in 3 weeks. If that’s the case come tomorrow, I’ll be so excited, because that will mean that my body comp is also dropping. The only downfall (If you consider it a downfall) was the face that my favorite shirt no longer fits me. I bought this really cool Armani shirt when I was in Vegas and it now must retire. That’s not necessarily a bad thing due to the fact that the shirt is now too small in the arms and chest vs the stomach. Now that’s the type of out growing your clothes I can handle.
Pretty similar training this week as with last week. My long run will be increasing to 12 miles so that will be a challenge. But one I’m ready to face. Looks like this week leading up to that day, I’ll be doing some major adjusting to the playlist. Off to sleep I go with my legs feeling quite happy thanks to my Pro-Tec Athletics Foam Roller and Hand Massager. These two pieces of equipment will be getting a lot of use in the coming months! All that are participating in athletic events should really look into purchasing a foam roller. Such a huge difference with your muscle recovery.
Happy Running Everyone and….. FIND YOUR STRONG
