I am doing something that I never thought I’d be doing…training for a 1/2 marathon.
But, first can we PLEASE talk about amazing food?
Brekky: 3/4 cereal, 1 small banana, 1 plum, 4 walnut halves, rice milk, cinnamon.
As I wrote about yesterday I went out for lunch with my friend Leanne.
We ordered tapas and they were HONESTLY AMAZING! Lamb shanks w/ butternut squash; Shrimp in a cream/butter/garlic sauce w/ rice; figs w/ pruschetta and rocket; hummus/baba ganoush/olive tapande. We each have half of what you see here. I was satisfied for honestly eight hours.
We then hit up the chocolate factory.
I had about 3 TB of chocolate chips and 1 very small chocolate truffle. Me and sugar have an abusive relationship. However, a lot of that is tied with it being an emotional release. Thus, I approached yesterday without emotion. However, in about 5 minutes after eating it I got a POUNDING headache. I just can’t handle chocolate/refined sugar.
I was glad that I went on my run earlier!
You see I am training for the City to Surf 1/2 marathon. It’s at the end of August. I have read SO much of what people have trained with etc. in the blog world. I have decided to go with the Galloway Method. Yesterday I did a 4:1 interval…with the pace of a 9 min/mile. I honestly was buggered at 25 minutes. I wanted to quit. I didn’t want to do another five minute interval. I stopped, gathered my thoughts and did it.
You see, I know that I can. It’s getting through those mental blocks.
I am scared out of my gourd to be training for a 1/2 marry. I am not someone who normally runs more than 3 miles/5 km. I have a 5 mile run on sunday and I just don’t know if I can do it—but I am not going to quit.
What is one thing that you want to do in your life, which scares you?
