Workout results 7/2

"You have to put in many, many, many tiny efforts that nobody sees or appreciates before you achieve anything worthwhile."- Brian Tracy

Today was good. I got up this morning and ran early on an empty stomach. I usually prefer to run a few hours after eating but as the summer heat is getting worse I need to start my runs early so that the heat and humidity is lower. I did well on my run. This is my first week of training for my half marathon coming up in October so I tried to slow my pace down while trying staying strong. For some reason this afternoon I started having a headache and I am not feeling my best but I am sure it will pass. I hope each of you are having a blessed and productive day! Keep reaching and going strong!

Hey Jen,
I have a question.. do you like those Cathe videos? They look really super hard. My gym is going up on their prices, and I am just wondering if I could do my workout from home, and I wanted to know how often you do her workouts. I watched one of them from you blog, and it looked really hard.

I know what you mean about the gym prices. I currently in day 56 of P90x and I love it. Very challenging workout program. There is also Chalean Extreme which a lot of women love. You can definitely get a great workout at home.
