Week 6 - The Road to 13.1

They are going by in a flash!!  8 weeks and counting until the big day!!  It was a pretty good week overall...nutrition was very good.  My reward was my first ever frozen yogurt...wow...have I been missing out.  16 Handles was quite the experience...red velvet cake with some rainbow cookies and a cherry on top.  In terms of training, I missed pilates on Monday (but did my walk at night) and my walk/speed drills on Thursday (but did strength training in the AM).  I was at work later than usual this week...so that was my downfall for Thursday night.  The good news is, I was active on all of the days that I should have been.

I had a great six mile walk yesterday...my time was horrible...my pace was not what it needs to be...but this was my first time out on the open road with
hills...and stop lights...so I am not panicking...well...maybe a little bit.  Yes, I had that moment of "why the hell are you doing this?  you really think you can keep the 4.0 mph pace?  you are not going to finish the half in 4 hours at this pace."  But like with any goal...you have to just tune out the doubt...and remember...who makes it happen...I do!!  What would be the fun of obtaining what it is you are after if it was easy peasy to get there?  There are peaks.  There are valleys.  The key is to keep moving forward.
