I not only picked up more than just a new wardrobe over the past two weeks. With the new look came new workouts. I walked another 10 miles as part of my training for next month’s half-marathon, and today I am tired and sore. I did manage to walk the route in under 15 min-miles though, but only within a 5 second factor. Ugh, more training in store for me and more tries to get this knee from feeling the strain. I did manage to drop another 1.8 pounds this week and that puts me to a total loss of 58 pounds. Thinking to myself, “the more I lose, the less my knee has to carry”. Oh how I hope it is that easy.
My daughter Nadia is getting ready to go off to boot camp with the Coast Guard and she will be coming for a visit the end of April and we will do a 10k together. It’s a mommy daughter thing and I am looking forward to it. I can’t believe the DIVA half marathon is just around the corner. I have to step up my training before slowing down to get ready. I am going to put a meal plan together to help me with energy prior to the event and navigate a way to stay extra hydrated on these long walks. If I could just run it would be over so much faster. The casualty of knee replacement surgery. Oh well, it’ll all be worth it
