This weekend I logged my longest run post-tumor (ok it's a cyst but really what is the difference?). J-Ninja and I
In a bit over a week I'll be heading to the PNW to be in my TFF's (Total Friend Forever) wedding. I am so excited to get back there and see my friends and just be there. I hope to get in at least a couple of runs on my old favorite routes. And no pressure but my bridesmaid dress...yeah it doesn't fit. How this happened I have no idea. Ok, I lied I know how it happened. I tried it on and ordered it three days after Big Sur marathon. Big mistake. I think this was a big mistake only because I was also injured and followed Big Sur training with two months off. I didn't run, or do anything, for two full months. So here I am, two weeks out from the wedding and I've got to get this dress to fit. Commence Operation Bridesmaid. Can I do it? I have no idea....but I don't really have a choice. It took about 9 weeks for my dress to come in after ordering it so there is no way I am getting another one. My only option is to amp up the workouts and nail my diet (or get it altered....but I'd rather slim down). It's certainly going to be a challenge, especially since I will be traveling the week prior to the wedding. So that means one week at home and then I have to be disciplined while on the road....no Safeway M&M sugar cookies...until AFTER the wedding. It is possible to be disciplined and healthy while traveling but it is also difficult. I am already planning my attack, healthy, fresh, organic veggies and fruits from the local market should help.
So what am I working with, you ask? Here it is....for everyone to see....
What do you think? Can I get it to zip in two weeks? I'm thinking two-a-day workouts and clean eating should do the trick.....Place your bets!
