    Current Weight: 219.6lbs
    Goal Weight: 185lbs
    Body Fat: 24.4%
    BF Goal: 15%


    Today’s Completed Workouts:
    - Zero Hero: Level I - Day 28
    - 50 Push-ups: Day 25 (incline)
    - Running: 11 miles


    Nutrition:


    Motivation/Gratitude: Didn’t finish the half marathon. That’s okay, though. As I was running, I realized that I enjoy the shorter distances versus the longer ones. I’m going to reprioritize and start focusing on running the 5k and 10k faster before heading for the marathon. At the 7-8 mile mark, I start to get so bored!!! All in all, happy that I woke up early and hit the trail. Also, grateful for the accidental corn dog in my Sonic bag.

    Zero Hero is almost done! Two more days. I’m thinking about doing Full Circuit next. I’ll pair that with Glutes of Steel challenge and maybe 30 Days of Yoga. Which program have you enjoyed the most so far?

      I'm late to wish you luck for your half-marathon, but obviously just right for congratulating you on your realisation that you like shorter distances more. So you've got something out of it, which is great

      Mad respect going for Full Circuit next, I'll keep that one until I've done the other cardio/streamline programmes on Level 3. I think it's... frightening
      I think my favourite programme so far was Total Abs (because I love abs workouts). Maybe followed by Cardio HIIT. Back when I did that, I liked combat moves. These days, not so much, but I'll probably get back into them again. But 30 Days of Yoga is very, very nice. And sometimes surprisingly challenging!

                      Thanks! We’ll see if it helps.

                      I swear by that Ankle Recovery workout, though. I had a running injury a month ago, and after a couple of days doing the workout am/pm, I felt a huge difference in recovery. I’ve been doing it ever since to strengthen my ankles for longer runs. I also use a toe separator. My twin brother saw somewhere that using a toe separator helps work the fascia in my feet so that my foot can flex properly. I dunno if it is a huge help, but it hasn’t hurt. . It also helps with the fact that I am on my feet all day as a teacher.

                        I use a toe separator, too. Mostly because I have a toe that bends at the end and causes me problems. I have had ankle problems in the past where it would just give out on me and make me fall. I use a balance board and I’m pretty sure that’s helped it. Couldn’t hurt to try that workout as well, though.

                          Ugh...doing six programs/challenges/workouts is tough. Push-ups are done tomorrow, thank goodness! It's not bad when I don't run, but adding running miles to a workout makes it exhausting. Phew!
