Half Marathon Training – Week 2 Wrap-Up

Today’s run was TOUGH! The sun was beating down on me and I’m so sore (in a good way) from my workouts this week.

I’m just going to come out and say this, even though it may sound egotistical… I’m proud of myself for these past two weeks. I’ve done my best in every single workout. Fitting them in when I can and making NO excuses for myself.

Honestly, I’m motivated to get back to the same fitness level I was at before baby. I miss running a 10 minute mile and being able to knock out 20 pushups. This motivation has little to do with how I look, I want that strong, fit, FEELING again and I’m determined to get it back. Of course it would be nice to look halfway decent in a bathing suit and fit in my clothes again, but I’m hoping that will all pan out without being obsessively preoccupied with it.

Here’s the week in training recap.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Way to go, Roni! I did just a two-miler yesterday and felt so accomplished. I admire your determination – -it’s contagious :)

    Wow, you should be proud the way you’re keeping at it on all fronts.

    I know exactly what you mean about that fit strong feeling being way more important than how I look in a bathing suit. (But also not pretending I don’t care at all about the bathing suit, ’cause, well, that would be lying.)

    Very impressive Roni! :) Keep up the good work. You’ve just motivated me to figure out my own schedule for working out. Thank you!
