Thank you for all of your love and support after Thursday’s post! I battled back and forth about whether I should continue on “The Plan” or if it just wasn’t right for me.

 

If it wasn’t for C, I probably would have given up and quit. But he made a good point… what does it hurt to try to move forward with it? So yesterday morning I woke up bright and early and headed to the grocery store so I could make the soup for the day.

And I’m so glad I did. Yesterday I was feeling better than ever and really enjoyed last night’s dinner (I really need to do a better job of remembering to take pictures!). That was the end of the cleanse. I have lost 4 pounds on the cleanse (!!!) and am now in the “testing” phase of foods. I like how even though she does give you certain foods to eat each day, you start to bring back the foods that you enjoy to eat. Today I test goat cheese and later in the week I will be testing rye, white bread, milk and proteins. From there, I get to start testing foods that I typically eat to see how my body reacts. If my body reacts negatively, it doesn’t mean that I can never eat it again. I just know what to expect when I do eat it.

So… we’ll see how this goes. I think it will pay off in the end when I have a clear idea of what is “good” and “bad” for me. Look forward to weekly updates with how things are going. 🙂

Today was my first day back running since I started The Plan. I just did a quick three miles since its super humid outside and we all know that’s not my favorite weather to run in.

Sometimes I love taking a break from running because it feels new and fresh when you hit the pavement again. Its always a good reminder why you love to do it in the first place.

I’m not sure how my training will look this week. With the Brooklyn Half next Saturday, I want to take it easy but still get in some good mileage. Here’s what I’m currently thinking:

  • Sunday: 5 miles
  • Monday: Rest day
  • Tuesday: 6 miles
  • Wednesday: 5 miles
  • Thursday: 3 miles
  • Friday: Rest day

 

I never know what to expect for a half marathon… this is going to sound crazy but I feel like its too short of a race for me! Although I’ve never properly trained for one, which is why I never seem to run them right (I always go out too fast and then die in the middle, but pick it up towards the end).

 

Half marathon fans: Any tips?
