Today I knew I needed to get out for a run. I just wanted to go to the gym and take it easy, but considering I haven’t lost ANY weight, I knew I needed to change things up to get the weight off.
The weather was also REALLY nice in St Louis
Saint Louis, MO
The run started out SOOOO much better than last week. I was feeling great even at mile one. (Usually it takes me a few miles to warm up.) I just felt great. Then mile 4 hit and I thought I was going to pass out. I even got water around mile 2 and 3, but I felt lightheaded. I had something to eat an hour before…. So I headed home. I was a little upset because my legs felt fine, but I just didn’t feel right. I guess 4 is better than nothing.
I also decided for an ice bath. I know most people do this after 6miles, but I do my own thing haha
After a shower and making some ice coffee x2 (recipe tomorrow!)
I drank it in my March of Dimes cup. I work in the NICU, so March of Dimes is very close to my heart. It is an organization that raises money for research on premature babies. Each year, the March of Dimes organizes a walk and run to raise money. In 2010 I even met Ali from Biggest Loser!
In St Louis, my coworkers will be there, along w/ many NICU graduates and their families. Also, families who have lost babies, come as well. And a lot of people wear shirts w/ the babies pictures on their as well. It really is a special day, I can’t wait till this year!
Today, I also started to tweet again (its been a week or so) and Colleen from the LunchBox Diaries, had retweeted a blog post that totally hit home with me.
Scott from Your Inner Skinny, just posted about how if you aren’t happy about something. CHANGE IT. It defiantly was something I needed to hear. In a few weeks, I have a half marathon that I know Im not completely ready for, but Im still going to do it. Walk or run, Im going to do it. Also, I need to lose this weight and Im the only one stopping it from happening. No more complaining just do it!!!
