Excuses, excuses that’s all I ever have for not hammering out a blog once a week, but man have I been busy. And by busy, I mean working out on the days I usually write my blog! So forgive me, please?
Where to start!?
I haven’t posted since January?! Damn I truly didn’t think it had been that long. I went home to visit my folks for 4 days at the beginning of feb and worked out 3/4 days with my 2 BFFs from high school. It was awesome. They let me put them through some tough workouts and they loved it! Or so they said 🙂
I have been emailing my nutritionist every Friday still updating her with my exercise for the week. I need to get back on track with my eating. I have lost weight in the past month, but I’ve also been pretty stressed out with life and haven’t been eating well. Working out a ton to deal with the stress which has helped but I don’t want to put this weight back on.

Sun- My 3rd HALF MARATHON, and 1st half marathon of 2014 plus 2 ball hockey games
Ok lets talk about this Half Marathon- The Hypothermic Half.
I did not training very well for this run. The longest run I did before hand was 12k which was about 3 weeks ago? maybe longer. Jill my running buddy and I were both freaking out a bit about doing the run but both said “F it, we’ll do what we can. If we have to walk we walk” well we finished in 2:18 (unofficial time- still need to check the official time)which is our best time to date. The last half we ran together we did in 2:28 so we shaved about 10 minutes off. We enjoyed a lovely brunch after.
I had some calf cramping issues this run as well. They started around the 15km mark but and would once in a while cramp, so Jill and I would walk for a bit until I could run again. Other than this the run was great! My only other issue is I feel sick almost immediatly after I finish running, and do for most of the day. Not 100% sure what to do about that, so if anyone has any tips feel free to pass them along.
