I think the thing I like best about following the Running Room schedule for this half is that it gives me target paces for each type of run. I admit I am a bit nervous going into this with a finish time goal, but these target paces are completely do-able for me.
I also can't believe I ran 5 days this week!!! That is the first time in a very long time I've done that!
A fun side effect of committing to my training plan (and starting a new job that doesn't have a yummy Good Earth in the lobby) is that I am also down on the scale!
I also made a couple of big decisions this week...
1) I am going to get some nutrition and weight loss counseling. I have access to this through my work's wellness program and I intend to take full advantage of it. I used to work for an employer who had a similar program and I found it very helpful. My benefits kick in on Wednesday and I plan to contact them that morning to get things started.
2) We are finally buying a treadmill. I need it from a safety standpoint - running at night in the winter in Langdon is just not safe. and I need it from a family standpoint - I can be a much more available mom if I can just run at home. I don't particularly care for the dreadmill...but it makes sense for me to have one at home and will remove a lot of excuses from ever forming.
