Comeback

I’m baaaaaaack!!!

#dontcallitacomeback

I went for a run… on a treadmill… STILL COUNTS!

I don’t need to go into detail about how bad treadmills are (that’s a given) but they are necessary when the weather outside is this #blizzardesque. I knew that I would have to do some unsavory things with my training, but I was really hoping that wouldn’t include using one of those wretched devices. I might be over dramatizing this, but it almost doesn’t feel like I ran when I did it on a treadmill. Am I alone in feeling like this?

After a “real” run, I feel pride and accomplishment. After a treadmill run, I feel a weird form of vertigo. After a “real” run, I check my Garmin stats/map and admire my handy work. After a treadmill run I get the pleasure of cleaning the device I despise #moredramatism. 

Besides all that, it feels GREAT to be back! In the time it has taken me to write this post, I have now done two good treadmill runs. Today I climbed up to my desired marathon pace of 6:40/mile, and it felt soooo right. I felt fast again, and I remembered why I love running so much. 

So once again… I’M BAAAAAACK!!!

Check out my food game lately…

 

Garbanzo hack! Homemade tzatziki sauce, cilantro sauce, tomatoes and cucumber, purple cabage and onions and romaine lettuce
 
Did I just become a vegetarian!? It’s really easy to cut out meat if you meal plan and make dinners like this (thank you Pinterest). We mixed all this into a salad with some humus and naan bread… DELICIOUS! 

  
I’m back to training and it feel awesome. I have my new training plan posted, so feel free to check it out. I (once again) used a mix of various plans I found online, and sprinkled in a dash of all the amazing feedback I have received on this blog. I think this new plan is vastly improved. 

Here’s to new beginings, and as always let’s #sub3!
