Time is flying and my half marathon is going to be here in just over 1 month. I'm running the Rock n Roll Half Marathon New Orleans with Team Challenge New England. I've been an AWFUL about training for my half since it started being so dark and cold. I haven't gotten many miles in at all since the start of winter.
I've still been working out most days of the week, keeping up with PiYo and my aerial classes, but haven't been getting those runs in! I am not much of a treadmill girl. I prefer to get in a many miles as possible outside, but I'm also sort of a fair-weather runner. If it's under 20 or 25, I'm not going out there!
So this morning I hit the gym to run on the treadmill. It has been about 10 months since I've set foot in a gym and that was long enough that they got entirely new key tags...ha! That made me laugh. The girl who checked me in was probably laughing in her head knowing how long they have had those tags.
My new plan is the go to the gym to run on the treadmill on the mornings that I work from home (which is twice a week). I have an extra 2 hours in my day when I don't have to commute so I should take advantage of that! Today was the first day of that new plan and it was a success :) I just need to prepare some more podcasts or videos ahead of time to listen to so I don't go crazy!
What are your favorite podcasts? I need to grow my list if I'm going to be treadmill running long distances!
Hi, I'm Jessie!
I live in NH with my husband and our pups. My favorite things are coaching Girls on the Run, eating good food that I didn't have to cook, helping other people work on their health, volunteering for and running races, watching tv, doing yoga, and spending too much time on social media. #Balance
