Julie here! And I'll admit it: running is getting the better of me. I keep trying, and I feel like I'm making no progress. I got to a point where I could run 15 min. without stopping, and I feel like I'm regressing. I hit the 8 min. mark and I loose all steam. I'm wondering if part of it is diet-- I hit a bad string of allergic reactions and defaulted back to some less healthy options this week. Sometimes, for me, this is necessary to get things back on track-- once my digestive tract decides it's not happy with something, it kind of hates everything until I give it a fruit/veggie break, so I wasn't exactly, um, I guess, 'absorbing' much fuel. But, now I'm good, so I need to tighten up the diet again. That being said, this week I am down .7lbs, which takes care of the .5 lbs I put on last week. I'm hoping to get the running back in shape, too. But, I'm not going to lie-- I keep waiting to like running, and I don't. Any tips anyone has on this are more than welcome!!
I went for a run in the steamy, steamy morning on Tuesday right before going on vacation . The rest of the week I was at Hocking Hills with my extended family doing hikes but also doing an obscene amount of lounging around. Perhaps all of the laughing and talking burned off some serious calories, because I only gained a pound, even with the copious amount of food that was always being consumed at the cabin! Now I'm preparing for my job directing a summer camp, but I'm back home and can get in my running groove again!
How about you? How are your goals/projects going?
