bcd's Journal, 11 March 2013

Just checking in to record a NSV- I finally worked my way back up to running a 5k! For those who don't know I suffer from exercise-induced migraines and running can be a trigger. I have been doing run/walk intervals for a while to build back up my endurance and today I ran 3.25 miles consecutively(in about 36 mins, same time as usual)! So far, I don't feel any of my pre-migraine symptoms. So, that was exciting. I am doing the Color Run 5K in May and my goal is to keep up running 1-2 times a week (while doing non-running cardio/strength on other days) to maintain my endurance and maybe even keep increasing it... at this time last year I was running up to 5 miles (but often triggering migraines).

I did my first March bodypump yesterday and it felt pretty good- I think I'm ready to increase my squat weight again- yeah!! I'm in good shape to meet my March goal of 1000 mins of exercise; already at 435 for the month.

My eating is still not as disciplined as it could be... i always have some excuse to blame it on but I know it all comes down to me and my choices. BUT, I still make great choices most of the time, and I feel confident that I am maintaining my weight, if nothing else. With warmer weather coming I am feeling some of that old "summer clothes are coming, I should go on a crazy crash diet to lose weight before summer" urge, but I know it's a BAD idea and I'm not going to fall into that trap. If I want be fitter for summer, I need to work out consistently, lift heavy weights, and cut out some of the junk that is sneaking its way into my diet. And that's it... so that's the plan.

That is an awesome NSV! I'm really glad you've been able to get back to your pace! You know, eating is always something - is life really worth living if you can't have a treat now and then?? I struggle with it a lot. I think it's all about balance. Take care!

Awesome that you've worked back up to 5K! Great feeling. Maybe you took it slow enough to avoid the migraines. Hope they stay away!
