First, I started my official training plan for my first Half-Ironman yesterday. While it was only an easy 3 mile run and a 30 minute strength training session, I am happy to say that I rocked it. I ran the first 1.5 miles easy, then I kicked it way up to see what I had in my tank for the last 1.5 miles. (Sorry Coach … guess I failed on executing that plan properly). While I know I was supposed to do 3 easy, it felt awesome to do 3 and feel like I killed it. Last week when I first hopped back on the treadmill after being out injured, I felt pretty defeated. I was out of breath at 1 mile and struggled to put down three. So one week later, to nail a workout, was just what I needed. I’m ready.
And second…. it’s Valentines Day! I have big plans this evening to hang with my littlest and cutest Valentine. We have a double date with some of our bestest friends who are moving out-of-town. They promise to visit and Mama E promises to train for her first half marathon with me this fall, so I won’t get too sad as long as they keep their promises!
My Valentine …. writing our his cards for school.
C-Man and His Best Buddy… ❤
How are you spending your Valentines Day? Are you training for an event? If so what and how is it going?
