Half marathon training started today. 4 easy miles. I took it to the trails. Thank you DST for granting me sunshine after work.
The trails were rough. I didn't wear my Garmin, so I have no idea what pace I was going. It could have bee 11 minute miles, it could have been 8. It was rough. Mostly because there were hills. My lungs forgot what hills were like. My legs were okay, my lungs, not so much. I have lots of time to relearn hills. This was a good start.
And then I took a picture in my bathroom. Why? Because this is a blog and I do what I want.
What else? I did my homework for my trainer. I'm working on negatives with the pull ups right now because my trainer told me so.
Taking a week off from training is weird. I still lifted weights, but didn't run or bike or anything. My laundry was less than half exercise clothes. I forgot to shower a few times, since I was so trained to shower post-workout. I had SO MUCH FREE TIME.
One of my uses of free time was spent organizing my books. These are the household cookbooks. Some of them have never been opened.
I also decided I should start to eat better again. So, 9+ cups of fruits and vegetables for lunch today.
Don't worry, there's meat in there, too.
Holy shit that was a lot of veggies. Delicious, but too high volume for me, man. But my poop is going to be awesome.
Yes, that's gross. I don't care. The internet is for poop talk and porn. At least, according to my browser history.
