I apologize for the elongated absence. I got caught up in this little thing called life, but lately I have found myself wanting this outlet back to share my workouts, my eats (yum…and not), my struggles working out, my motivations (and lack thereof), and my difficulties.
Since I last posted, I did my first triathlon. It felt like hell going through it, but at the end I was on such an endorphin high that I went a little race crazy. I also completed a Warrior Dash with several friends
And I loved it!
However, I have started lacking off in my training and with triathlon number 2 around the corner and the hopes of starting to do half marathons in the winter off season, I am back here for you to motivate me and hopefully for me to motivate you.
To start off I have a little 5k race with my cousin this weekend, and I’ve decided to go balls to the wall for running it. Normally whenever I run I feel like I need to keep some energy in reserve so that way I don’t get exhausted, and then I end up going slower than normal.
An update on my weight loss: I am down 15 pounds and counting and feeling better than ever. More than the weight on the scale is how my clothes fit and how I look in the mirror. It feels so good to look like I am sucking in whenever that’s just the way my stomach is now. I still have a long way to go, but I am getting there. I think it’s time for some belated before/midway pictures to be coming your way. If you ask for them, you will receive.
What are ways that you stay motivated and on top of things?
