So we wrapped up week 2, and I had a 3 lb loss!! I spent a lot of the week sick, so as you will see from the bits of the report below, I didn’t have a lot of activity except for the half marathon and the recovery quality workout on Tuesday. I did, however, log all my food, and for the most part, I remained under my calorie budget.
What worked this week:
- drinking lots of liquids
- getting lots of rest
- having friends to run the half marathon with.. right off the bat, one said “it’s just a long run with a bunch of people”
- talking to my sister (my teammate)
One proud moment this challenge so far was running the 3M Half Marathon while I still had a cold. I didn’t know if I had it in me.. walking around the house left me exhausted. I emailed my coach, who told me take to some DayQuil and said ” it won’t be as fun or easy but you could definitely get the work done because of your strength.” Except it was fun, and not as hard as I expected it to be. I was super proud of my legs for powering through the last mile and a bit, and achieving my PR!
Here are a few of the stats from my BodyMedia armband
What I’ll do differently next week:
- Get all my workouts in — luckily this is a recovery week from the half marathon :D
- Get more fruits and vegetables in
- Eat more protein
If you’re doing a challenge or working on your New Year’s Resolutions, how did you do this week?
