Health & Fitness Friday: Half Marathon Training and Postpartum Weight Loss

Monday: 4 miles in 44:00
Tuesday: Tracy Anderson Post-Pregnancy Workout
Wednesday: 3.5 miles in 36:20
Thursday: Rest
Friday:3.7 miles in 38:00
Weekly Mileage: 11.2

This week my total mileage was really low and I realized how much slower I am now. I wanted to finish this half marathon in less than 2 hours (last half time was 2 hours, 20ish seconds), but I'm starting to think that's too lofty of a goal. Based on my workouts this week, I'm thinking that finishing in under 2.5 hours is a more realistic goal.

On the subject of health and fitness, I'm about 4 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight. This has taken way longer than I had anticipated, but to be fair, I haven't really dedicated myself to losing the weight either. So, it's time to get serious! I'm  down 26 pounds from the day Noah was born, and still 17 pounds away from my goal weight. Here's to getting it done!

  1. It's funny...your 11 miles this week was far less than you wanted but 10/11 was what I was shooting for and I totally didn't make that!!! Haha! And I know you are feeling like you might be slower on the half than you wanted, but you never know!!! Race day excitement may push you faster than you expect!! No matter what...it's such a HUGE accomplishment :) So happy to have you on the linkup this week!!
