Today was day 10 on the ole training plan and as you may know, I’ve been having some problems around mile 4.5ish.¬† I think I may have figured it out!!¬† I ate half of a tortilla with 1/2 a teaspoon of peanut butter RIGHT before my run.¬†¬†¬† As I was running, I sipped on water even if I wasn’t feeling thirsty.¬† It seemed to work.¬† Keep your fingers crossed!!

Workout (Yesterdays)

I got to the gym around 7:00 am to do a weights session.¬† I love lifting weights, but since I have been focusing on half marathon training, I’ve been having a hard time getting motivated to weight lift.

Push Ups-15

Bent Over Row-15

Hammer Curls-15

Bent Over Fly-15

Shoulder Press-15

Tricep Dips-15

I used 10 pound weights.  I did this circuit style, so I completed this two more times for of total of three times.  I followed up with some ab work. 

50 frog crunches

50 ab turns

25 sit ups

25 crunches

I rounded it all out with 15 minutes of incline walking on the treadmill.

I was a nice sweaty beast when I was finished.
