my team just before we crossed the finish line
It's been great the past couple weeks to be off work (we didn't run a holiday program since we were having more renovations done on the building) and not have to do ANYTHING. I still went for a few runs (including a 10km run yesterday) and did a couple Jillian Michaels workouts (I really like the 3minutes strength, 2 minutes cardio, 1 minute abs circuits). I'm still deciding what event I'd like to try next (the other day a friend tried to encourage me to do a triathlon with her. That's something I've never even considered-- I don't really know how to do proper swim strokes for the most part but maybe it would be fun....). I'd like to join the Run for Refugees team at the Melbourne Marathon next year and do the half marathon distance (so far, the furthest I've run is a 15km run and it went really well).
I think my next post will be about some things I've found useful during training. I've changed what I eat a bit. Turns out I also have a weird fueling technique for before a big run but it works for me. I also made some really good homemade energy bars that I like to keep on hand. I'll also post some info about how I trained.
