The Weight is over

 

Yep, I have switched over to weight training and it started yesterday. I’m sure I will still run occasionally, I mean I do have 2 more races right now. However, my goal this year is ME! I’m focusing on getting healthy and making it stick. 

For the last month and a half I have been learning about diet and a little bit of body weight exercises. After a small break to recover from the marathon we are now full speed ahead with strength!

I’m excited about this new journey. I realized that if I focused on goals of running faster, finishing triathlons, or marathoning, I couldn’t focus on my weight. 

So here goes. Today I am officially down 5lbs and 3 inches gone in the middle! Makes me believe very much that this was the right choice for me. Sometimes it is good to take a step back, regroup, and come back stronger!

Anybody else done this before? Any advice or tips?

    My current combination of hill runs, 5k tempo runs and 2 strength training sessions each week have made a big difference to my body in a short period of time. My jeans were literally falling off me today
