Back to 217! I actually increased how many calories I have been eating. I had been only eating back 1/2 of my exercise calories and decided I might need to eat back more and it seems to be helping. I am going to try this again this week and see if I still get the same results.

last week I met with my running coach to learn about strength training for runners. I think it was the best $50.00 I have spent on running. I learned a lot and I got a lot of running drills to better help my stri...

Running workouts have been going great. This morning was 5 x 1 mile at my half training pace. Felt great all 5 sets.

This Friday I am cheating on my personal trainer and doing a workout with my running coach. He wants to show me some specific running strength training exercises I can do on my own. I am a little nervous. He is a track coach for a University. We communicate through emails so this should be interesting.

There is a little stress at home right now. My husbands job j...

Running 3 hours, 15 miles in the rain this morning.....felt AWESOME!!! my best long run yet. I felt great the entire time, improved my long run pace. My great friend Denise joined me for the last 8 miles. We even had a little foot race at the end. I needed this to boost my confidence. I guess I should stop think evil things about my running coach....

I just need to make sure I drink Tons of water today.

Another great thing about yesterday. Put on a pair of Jeans for the first time this fall. Of course I still have anxiety when I have not worn something for a couple of months. My Jeans were loose! ...

No working out today! It was nice to wake up this morning and have to walk the dogs. Yesterday evening during my personal training session my trainer cut my the workout short (this has never happened to me before) He made it more of a therapy session - good stretching and ART work, he is also my Chiropractor.

I guess he saw something in my that made him think I needed a break. In my mind I know he was right but it is so hard not to feel like I failed.....so stupid to think that way. I...
