I, Cathy Twitchell, will train for my upcoming half marathons and will blog all about it. I will no longer stuff my face full of unhealthy food until it hurts to sit or stand. And I will get some sort of exercise in every day.
I'm just now getting over the whole lack of energy thing and last week we were in Denver with J. Last week was interesting, I decided that I'd eat whatever I wanted and not get any exercise of any kid. Great idea, huh? I felt like total crap when I got home. I think I gained a good 4+ pounds. Yeah, not going to happen again.
This week we're going to Montana to visit my grandmas. One's in Butte and the other's in a little tiny town called Hotsprings. There's lots of open space to run/walk and I'm going to make a point of getting out everyday while I'm there.
This morning I got up and walk/ran 2.65 miles. It was hot outside, but not too hot. I felt great besides the fact that I forgot to get a drink before and then when I got to the water fountain on my route there was a guy and his kid getting a drink and I didn't want to wait (Note to self: dumb idea.) so I kept running. After a couple minutes I started getting a headache and light headed so I walked the rest of the way. I just kept thinking the whole time, "I shoulda brought water. Next time bring water. Why didn't I bring water?!" So, when I go to Montana I need to bring my little handheld water bottle with me.
But, I promise I'll keep running and keep posting. I gotta keep up with it!
