When I sat down to write this post, I fully expected to share all of the details of my next half marathon and my training plan and my crossfit experience so far.
Then, I had the brilliant idea to see if I could find my heavy metal test results on the Genova Diagnostics website first. Well, it was super easy to locate and now I’m super unhappy.
Why, exactly, didn’t I just wait until my next appointment? I don’t understand the six pages of text that accompany these results, and now I’m even more anxious for my appointment on Wednesday…
In other news, I’m committed to running a second half marathon! I’m going to run the Buffalo Half Marathon on Sunday, May 28, 2017. I am loosely following the Hal Higdon Half Marathon Novice 2 program again, but plan to adjust some of the runs on a weekly basis and will incorporate some speed work. My first half marathon was only about finishing. This time, I want to focus on dramatically improving my time (hoping for a >20 minute PR). I’ll advance to the Intermediate 1 program next time 🙂
Monday – Rest (I love starting out with a rest day)
Tuesday – 6:30am crossfit + 3 mile run
Wednesday – 6am vinyasa yoga + 3 mile run
Thursday – 3 mile run + 60 minute strength for endurance
Friday – Rest
Saturday – 8K Shamrock Run
Sunday – 60 minutes cross training
Looking forward to sharing my progress throughout this training cycle, and to sharing all the details of my next functional medicine appointment. Talk to you soon!
