Melanie Does Life - being a mom :-)

I am Melanie. I am first time mom to Ben and wife to Manuel. I am a runner. I try to life a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes I fail miserably but usually I get back on track. I want to run another half marathon. Here you will find stuff about me, my life in FL, my running, being a mom and whatever I feel like blogging.

I blog in english and german. This way my folks in Germany can read everything as well. Thanks for visiting! I hope to see you again soon...

I went out to Running for Brews tonight. They were meeting at a new location and I have not run in that area. Didn’t like the route much. I think they will change it for next week. The others made me run a lot faster and now i am very sore. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow.

Ran 2.28 mi in 33:33. I did run the first 2 mi and walked the rest. Did 25 squats and 25 walking lunges during the walk. 30 mountain climbers and some stretching afterwards.

Did a 2 mi walk today and a 3 mi run. It is the first run of my new training plan. Yay! During the fun one of my toes started to hurt but I have no idea why. I just hope that it is not the shoes. Didn’t of much over the weekend as Ben was a bit sick.
