Week 2 of Half Marathon Training | Recap

So I had every intention of working out 6 days this past week, but as I got the kids in the car Tuesday morning to go to the gym, I realized I left my wallet in Jason's car the night before. I had no driver's license or gym ID.  It was the perfect excuse not to go.  My lovely husband even offered to drive back to drop it off, but I just wasn't feeling it.  I think Tuesday ended up being laundry day.  Oh wait, everyday is laundry day in this house!  

Anyhow, week 2 has still been entirely at the gym.  I know I need to get outside for my runs, but I'm just not ready to deal with the heat outside in the evenings and I am just not an early morning person (I can rock 10am like it's nobody's business).  On Sunday 2 friends and I went to the gym at 7am.  WOW! Those 5 miles were brutal.  There's usually a point in my run where I start feeling really good, like I could keep running forever, yea well, it never happened yesterday.  I felt like I was dragging.  But, I got my milage in and rewarded myself with a Veggige Blast juice from the gym's juice bar.  

Let's not even talk about the pizza & beer I had last night!  I feel terrible for having zero will power.  I really have to work on refocusing my eating habits.  I know I've been saying that a lot on here, but I just love to eat!  I need an intervention.  I'm going to come up with an action plan and share it on here to keep myself accountable.  Hopefully that will help keep my snacking and eating badly under control!  

Here's the training recap for week 2:
