I've mostly been feeling really good from it. I was complimented on my posture the other day, & I can feel myself slowly getting stronger. Some days I have trouble getting into it & getting through it, but I'm always glad I did it once it's over.
I also have ran a few times during the challenge, & yesterday I completed my first (official) 5k run! It was a Fun Run for Running School, Inc. (a charitable organization committed to promoting exercise for children's health), held at the Whole Foods Market where I work. The 5k was very enjoyable, & I felt so good afterward. My mom & her fiance even showed up to take photos (& to enjoy a cinnamon roll from the bakery while I ran).
Oh, & then I worked on my feet for eight hours. Yep, I'm hardcore. It was so exhilarating to run across that finish line. I totally want to try training for a 10k at some point in the future (maybe later this spring??).
I also have been eating deliciously (& healthy). I feel so much better when I'm eating fruit, vegetables, nuts, etc. (However, I must admit that nibbling on cheese at work is my weakness.) I did notice, though, that eating is such a pattern-based activity. When I'm eating produce-based meals, that's what I continue to want. But then if I have more than one meal with bread or pasta or fried food within a day or two, I start to crave those items. And then I have to break myself out of the habit. It's pretty crazy.
Also, I have a long list of yummy recipes to try soon!
Is anyone else doing the Challenge? How's it going? I'm super stoked to do the neck & shoulders postures tomorrow. Any tips on training for a 10k?
