my half, sugar, and rock n roll

I finally completed my half marathon that I planned to do on Jan 1st. This is another of what I call a "solitude marathon", since I run it alone and not at a organized race. I got nine miles or so into the half on the first and had tummy trouble. I ended up having to quit with only 2 miles left to go :(

so... I had a redo on Jan 16th. I made sure I was rested and ate well the day before so i wouldnt have tummy troubles :)

I was thrilled that I ran the majority of the distance !! and I set a new PR... beating my old PR by 25 mins.... finishing in 2 hours 2 mins. I really really wanted to finish in under 2 hours but just could pull myself through it. IF I had been at a race, had a crowd or a partner I know I could have made it. Here is a post on my personal blog if you care to read :)

I am wondering if any of you have found new PRs after drastically reducing your sugar intake? I have gone to pretty much no sugar for the last month and I am finding the fat is melting away and my running is just improving by leaps and bounds.

I am also very excited I have a group of women (about 25) who I am helping train for a half marathon in March. Some will do their half on March 13th here in our own mini solitude race.. and some will travel to the Dallas Rock and Roll on March 14th. Of the 25 only 1 has ever completed a half.

Anyone else doing the Rock and Roll in Dallas?

Good for you! Improving your time by 25 mins is incredible!!
I may have to consider cutting sugar out if it improves my time like that! :)
I just did the AZ R 'n' R Half, I loved the whole atmosphere at the R 'n' R race! Good Luck!

Cut just sugar? or white bread & pasta? Like sugar busters?

Ruthie said...

I have cut table sugar, cookies, cakes, ice cream, candies.. all sweets... if i want some sweets I do fruit.. (its taken me 3 years cut get it all out of my diet... my final step was table sugar as I use to put tablespoon in my tea like crazy..


as for bread. I eat it but limited. .. no white bread for me though.. wheat. .and whole wheat or spinach pasta... :)

I have never really heard about cutting out sugar... do you just go cold-turkey? Maybe it's something I can give up for lent to help me have the extra will-power. But don't you get horrible cravings?

I gave up sugar once before and felt fabulous... not sure why I went back to it. Haven't really had it for about one month now myself so yeah for us.

Great new PR for ya!

Hello!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin to get income with a sum that usually goes
for daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'll be glad to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit my pages and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per daily now.

I have known for a long time that sugar is my downfall. I am becoming more and more convinced that it is something I need to minimize. Thanks for the motivation!
Not doing the Dallas, but going to do the Seattle R n R in June! It was a blast last year!
