I have some new races in the works and feel like having something to work towards and a training plan - I feel embowered and in control again. Its a great feeling!

My next half marathon will be at the end of April. I want to break 2:15. So I have some training to do :) My official training will start the second week of January. Until then I have mapped out my December workout regimen. I will be a mix of running 3-4 miles, speed work, insanity videos, yoga and rest.

My pal Laura has challenged me to a December reward challange. 6 lbs from TODAY to be off my body by  Dec 31st and 14 miles ran. Im up to 5 miles for the month. My reward will be a pretty girlie delicate looking bangle type watch. They make my wrist feel small :)

What isnt feeling small right now is me... I ran outside tonight. Its dark obviously so I wanted to wear something bright and my shirt from the Shamrock marathon is hot pink. Ummmmm doesnt fit. Not even a little bit. It was skin freaking tight. Yuck. I wanted to throw it away in disgust but I think instead once I log off of here - I am going to go put it back on and take a picture and put it on my mirror... talk about inspiration.

  1. You go, Christina! I'm with you on this! My goal is 15lbs in the next 12 weeks and I'm also training for a 1/2 marathon at end of April. Thanks for the post!
