I feel like my half-marathon training program is coming along quite well. According to my training program, I was to cross train today instead of run, which is exactly what I did. I lifted ten pound free weights for 15 minutes, then fought with my favorite machine for 30 minutes - my beloved stairmaster. Watch out now! She fought back today! Woohoo! It was a blast! Good times! You know how much I freakin' love that machine if you read my post from the other day.
I savor my runs so much, but I recognize that cross-training and strengthening my upper body and core are essential to my being able to complete the half marathon. It's just not my favorite activity. I'd rather run!
Today was a good day. It's still not over yet, but I'm confident it will be soon. Time to head to the water fountain for another refill.
Keep on runnin' yall!

2. Amy's burritos: so filling and low-fat too
3. My Crockpot for cooking my dinner slowly while I work the day away
4. Cross-training for the strength and balance it gives my body
