Half Marathon Training Diary // Week 3

You know when you have one of those weeks where theres far to much travelling, occasions to eat and drink, get togethers and family visits to manage sticking to a routine? Yes that was this past week for me.  And unexpectedly a bit of a reality check to be honest. Am I really getting so boring and obsessive that I turn down a BBQ and bottle of Vino just to squeeze in another run or worry I'll feel sluggish the next day?  Hmmm well yes I was. (Ok, I am).  But down time is much needed and making memories / exploring new things should be a priority in life not a hardship. So after mini panic was over and I essentially got a grip (3 s'mores don't make you fat) a wonderful week was had... 





 Being healthy and sustainable throughout training for a challenge is SO important. And healthy means girls night, bubbles and fish and chips sometimes. If your training and diet is too restrictive you won't maintain it and you certainly won't enjoy it. After my 3 days away and yummy indulgences, instead of being on a mega detox since I've been back, I've simply just reverted back into a more balanced way of eating and exercising ready to tackle a new week.  

Sooo here's the last 7 days in miles...


Hope you're enjoying the ride
