April Fitness Goals

I’m an avid runner. I started running when I was in 7th grade and continued competing until  11th grade. After junior year of high school, I burned myself out. Running was no longer fun. It had become too much about improving my time and beating other girls in my team. I was even recruited to join the cross country team at my university, but I turned it down. I decided to take break for a couple years from competitive running. I only worked out at the gym and attended fitness classes.

Until last Spring, when I found my running buddy. She and I trained in 100 degree weather during the summer, and ran The Hottest Half in August. I made it under 2hr27min. I’m going to run another half marathon in six weeks. So far, I have lost 7 of the 12 pounds, I set out to lose. I have five more to go, and I am in ultra training mode this month. My meals consist of: yogurt for breakfast, sandwich for lunch, protein bar for a snack, and some type of dinner. I am also cross training five days a week. My sessions consist of running, elliptical, HILT training, swimming, pilates, and cardio kickboxing.

Running on the road helps me deal with anxiety and stress. It has been a great way to escape from the real world. It also helps with my health! If you want to avoid illnesses or decrease your doctor’s bills, I definitely recommend working out regularly.I’m having a lot of fun and staying healthy!

My goal for this half marathon is to run a better time! As close to 2h as possible :)

Are you working out to stay healthy? Is there anything your training for?
