Filling & Healthy Lunch Ideas

I am giving filling and healthy another go for the next few weeks, but there is only one problem.....my love for mayonaise. Seriously, it has always been my favourite condiment, and can make anything taste better. The extra light mayo is not really my cup of tea, I find it a bit bland and sweet and I would usually rather use the propoints on low fat mayo. Anyway, the point is, I don't really want to waste my weekly propoints on too much mayo so I had to find alternatives for lunch.

My 2nd Half Marathon!

Yesterday I completed my 2nd half marathon! And despite the fact that I am so incredibly stiff and sore, I am already planning for my next one. That's the thing about races, they are addictive. I mean I know I always feel great after my regular morning & weekend runs, but its hard to stay motivated without a race to work towards and the feeling you get crossing the finish line!

Less Than A Week to Go!

So I'm into the final week before the half marathon, I only have 5 days to go and I am actually feeling ok about it. I wish I knew the route a little as I am a bit terrified about how hilly its going to be, but I mean what is the worst that can happen? I am not going for a PB for this run, I just want to complete it.

Keeping Things In Perspective

I've had a great week running! I doubled my distance for the first week of March and felt great doing it. My distance has been good and my times have been good. All good right? Well this morning I had a short run planned, 3 miles, so I decided I was going to push myself and go as fast as I could. I was hoping to log a fastest pace for the distance but it wasn't to be! I still clocked a pretty good time and pace but I was disappointed in myself and I posted my disappointment on Instagram.

Finding my Feet Again!

After a slow start to the year, I am finally regaining ground on my running! I am only halfway through this week and I am already nearly at the same distance I was the past 2 weeks. I plan to double the distance by the end of the week. When I agreed to do the half marathon in a couple of weeks I was quite daunted, but which each run I get more and more confident and comfortable.
