Run

Starting my marathon training this week has reminded me about how much I use to love to run. I wish I wouldn’t have stopped running every day of the week.
Running by myself is kind of boring at times, but also very peaceful and just time to be by myself.
I downloaded Hal Higdon’s Marathon training app to help me keep track of my progress and stay on track.
Today is just an easy three miles, but the last three miles I will ever run in a pair of glasses!
It’s a little rainy and cloudy out, but I think it will be a beautiful run.

pavement

Whether it is hitting the pavement in my running shoes or on my bicycle I love it!  I love to spend 30 minutes to an hour, just my ipod, my running shoes, the beautiful outdoors, and me!  I am glad that I live in a city that there are trails all over it, and I just happen to live one block off of them. Is it really spring? My allergies say it is. Weather, please keep getting warmer so that I can workout outside. I hate the Dreadmill. I need to get my daily amount of Vitamin D. I love the sun.

commitment to staying healthy

The first year of medical school was overwhelming and of course it came with a nice weight gain and a lack of endurance. Well my lovely friend Brooke ( Life Love and Med School.), is a runner just like me and we decided to make the commitment to run the Route 66 Half Marathon  on November 20. We are two weeks into our training. I love running and my body is starting to figure out that it has to get up at 6 am in order for me to get my morning run in and get ready for class by 8 am. The accountability of knowing that Brooke is going to be at the school at 630 am every morning makes me get my butt out of bed, to not only disappoint her, but to be a good running and workout partner.

Here is our training program. Half Marathon Training: Intermediate.

Running feels great and my body has missed the sweat, missed the sore muscles, and missed my jeans being loose!
