Good morning + happy twenty twelve (I like the sound of that!).
5 weeks from today, I’m running half-marathon no. 6, so I started the year with my first long training run of 8 miles, ending my 6-day running streak at 40 miles. #gothedistance
My new running toy is excellent motivation.
I’ll be honest, the run wasn’t enjoyable – the miles were long and sluggish – but it did feel good to see my stats afterwards. #justdoit
So, today officially starts my training for Half #6 (according to me). I’m pulling this training plan outta my a—, so I hope it works… a.k.a. gets me a PR.
Half-Marathon Training in T-5 Weeks
1 long run/week

What do ya think? I want push myself – run fast, lift heavy, stretch – and, of course, remember the importance of rest days. #makeitcount
With my first run of 2012 done, I “treated” myself to a healthy bowl of buckwheat.
1/4 c. 1% milk + 3/4 c. H20. 1/4 c. buckwheat. 1/2 banana. 1/4 c. blueberries.
1T flax, cinnamon. walnut butter. #delicious
How did you end twenty eleven + start twenty twelve?
