TM= Treadmill

This first week has been a slow ease into training, running wise. I actually ran a lot when I was in Hilton Head, but coming back to the cold didn't help my motivation. I've been running mainly on the treadmill and had a couple days outside, which were perfect! That below 0 weather hit us this week, so it was hard to be able to run outside. I definitely have picked up my weight training, which I know will make a difference in my pace. I've been getting up early (6 am, gasp!) and either lifting or yoga and then running or cardio in the afternoon. I love getting an early start to my day. I think a combination of getting rest, exercising more, and eating right has made this first week a success. Once I start running more, I'm sure my pace will be a lot better because I was quite slow this week. 

Another side note....I love love love Yoga! It makes me feel so good. I was quite sore after the class on Tuesday considering I hadn't taken a class in over 3 weeks. Glad to be back!

And another, another side note....check out my snazzy new outfit! I got the pants and pullover for Christmas and I love them! And the shoes are new as well, matches perfectly. 

Goal for week 2: Run quicker, specifically have a 3 mile run at 27:00.
