i am starting to feel the burn...out!
i was warned not to start training too early, because i could risk injury and/or get burned out. however, my first run of the year was in february, so i began training in january and have been running ever since.
i haven't stopped running, i've just been running less days and shorter distances. i'm still excited about running, but at the same time, it's been easier to skip days. summer was a great excuse.
june was the official start of my marathon training program. now, at the end of july, i'm almost two months behind. not gonna lie, i'm starting to panic. just a little. i have to dramatically increase my mileage as well as hit the pavement (vs. the treadmill).
my next run is coming up on august 10th, 9 miles.
maybe a new pair of running shoes will give me motivation.
these are a couple of sports bras i've been loving; both are from forever 21. they provide moderate support which is enough for the 3-5 mile runs i've been doing, but i'll definitely need ones with more support for my upcoming longer runs.
what i've been obsessed with lately?
honey vanilla chamomile tea + almond milk.
based on another runner's recommendation to mix [chocolate flavored] protein powder with warm almond milk (a post-run drink that helps her muscles recover and replace protein lost during runs), i picked up almond milk to try. not bad.
but since i'm not taking protein supplements yet, i was left to finish the rest of this almond milk. it's not uncommon for me to add milk to my tea, so i used the almond milk. YUM! i look forward to it every night. can't get enough of it. plus, almond milk is loaded with calcium and vitamins A-D-E.
do you have a sports bra (brand) that you love?
have you tried almond milk?
