By some miracle or just general research, I am have been in first place for the World Cup pool at work. My goal of not coming in at last has worked. Honestly, being number one for a few days is just as good as winning. The games have been very exciting, heartbreaking and stomach-aching. The pride of each country rests on the outcome of one play. Excited to see the US play tonight.
In term of training for the half marathon, I have altered my eating habits. I have cut down the sugary/bad foods and replaced them with fruits and vegetables. After one week, I am already feeling a lot better. I have run 3 times so far. Each time my pacing is improving. When I was training in Philadelphia last fall for 5Ks it was a lot harder. The air was colder and I was training with my husband. He is in great shape and fast. It is really hard to pace properly with someone who is fast. I am working on developing a good playlist for a 10 minute mile run. Here’s hoping the next 4 runs go smoothly.
