baby steps

Last night I added just over half a mile to my route. I can't remember a time when running ~2.5 miles was this difficult. It was also only about 25 minutes after dinner, so it wasn't the best time to run, either. Like the 2 mile loop got easier, this will too. I'm hoping by the end of next week to be up to 5k.

Today I'm going to try Lynn's full body workout plan. I bet that's gonna hurt in the morning! I'm also working with Lynn and some people on this website to get my diet under control. It's fun to work out a healthy diet for someone who is a) trying to shed some fat, b) breastfeeding, and c) training for a half-marathon. It's a bit of a challenge, but will hopefully be a fun one. My husband has been so supportive. We worked out a schedule so I could go run last night. Then he sat down with me to plan some healthy, veggie-packed dinners for this coming week. I'll be honest, I'm a little bit intimidated by how much work is ahead of me, but I'm up to the challenge.

I'm glad you've been posting to your blog! :) Good job on the running and getting back in shape. It will happen in no time. I put the yoga DVD you recommended on Netflix and should get that soon. I've never done true yoga before, so it should be interesting.
