The fall semester of my senior year is coming to an end and with that, so is my information technology class that I originally made this blog for.
Despite that, I absolutely plan to keep on training for my half marathon and hopefully will continue to find motivation and support through this blog.
I had a great time writing this and it's definitely opened me up to a huge online community I never knew existed! Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to read about my training and best of luck to all the runners out there! Keep up the good work!

Quick Diet Tip!

Here's a great blog post I found on tips for getting back on track after Thanksgiving!

Week Seven!

Well this is definitely going to be a catch up week. After a really great thanksgiving with really great food and really great laying-around time, I'm ready to get back into running BIG time. I edited the schedule a little by bumping up a few run times just because I've slacked a lot lately. Feel free to stick with Oprah's though if you want!

Sunday: 6 Mile Run. 45 crunches
Monday: Jog (45 mins.) 45 crunches
Tuesday: 30/30 Cross Training Day (30 minutes stairclimbing, 30 minutes walking). 45 crunches

Thursday: 25/25 Cross Training Day. 45 crunches
Friday: 3 Mile Pace Day. 45 crunches

Well, it's finally happened. I'd been doing really well and sticking to the program for at least 5 or 6 days a week. But this past weekend I went to visit some friends at Penn State and JMU and didn't get a chance to run. Now it's Tuesday night, I haven't ran in about 5 days, and I'm thinking I'd much rather take a nap then work out. Help!

I know if I don't start up again right away, I'll never stick with the training through Thanksgiving break. I'd love any tips on how to get back in the game. In the meantime, I found this article on how to stay motivated while training and this picture might help too. Still, right now all I can think is, "I'll start tomorrow..."

I hope so; wish me Luck!
