Ever since I started doing Nutirsystem, I have also started working out a little bit more. I started out doing Jillian Michaels, which is an amazing program and I’m seeing positive results, I just wanted a little bit more.
I started running again. I was a pretty avid runner in high school and I loved doing it, but between classes, friends, a boyfriend-eventual husband, planning a wedding, moving, I got off track a little bit. I’m the first to admit that I haven’t been the best at working out in the past year, but I’m happy to say that thanks to Nutrisystem, I have gotten somewhat back on track. I even downloaded an app that will help me train for a 5k. Which I love.
When I came back from my first day of running I felt alive again. I felt stronger than I had felt in a long time. The more I ran, the stronger I felt. The more I ran, the calmer I was at night and slept better. I started to remember the way I felt when I was in high school and when I ran. I enjoyed it, but it also helped with my overall thinking. After I came back from running, I was on a running high and decided to seriously consider a goal that I have thought about for a very long time. I want to run a half marathon in 2014. This is something that I have been considering for a while. My dad has run two marathons and I’m no where near ready for that, but a half, doable.
Have you ever ran a half marathon? Marathon? Any advice for a first timer?
