This morning I decided to use 2 tbsp of my almond butter instead of my usual 1 in my oatmeal. it helped keep me satisfied a little longer than usual, and the taste of the bowl was even better!! This jar is going by too fast! love those almond butter oats!
Today I tried one of my many wonderful bars from Allison. This time i picked out the mint chocolate luna tea cake. This one had its odds against it. I am not really a fan of mint and chocolate together.. however i DID really like the cool mint chocolate cliff bar… and then also, i have tried two other flavors of the luna tea cakes and i haven’t really liked them. This bar had luck in its favor, because it was a hit! I think allison knows my inner bar love and has picked out such great flavors that i wouldn’t normally buy for myself. you rock girl 🙂
During lunch i knocked out a 45 minute interval treadmill run! i was shocked, because I haven’t run 45 min on the treadmill in foreverrrr. 30 mins is usually my max. It was a good run and felt so proud when i was done. I am trying to get serious with teh training now, since my 8 week plan starts only a few weeks away. You all are so supportive and are such great running inspirations, it always makes me want to push myself. I also checked out the weather for NC this weekend, and it looks like it’s going to be in the low 60s!! sooo happy, and can’t wait to get some runs in outside.
I have a favor to ask of any of you experienced runners? On my new training plan it has interval days and hill days. Can you help explain to me what the descriptions mean? Like for week 1 interval training it says a 45 minute run. Then it says 3 x (6 minutes med hard, 2 minutes easy) so i assumed that that would be those intervals 3 times but that only comes out to 24 minutes. I am a little confused, so any help would be appreciated 🙂 i feel like a dummy that i can’t understand the training plan. thanks guys, youre the best.
Lunch was amys black bean and veggie enchiladas. I am obsessed with her cheese enchiladas, but these black bean and veggie ones are delicious too. Dairy free and amazing. Amy knows her stuff, i don’t know how many times i’ve said it. YUM! they taste just as good as restaurant enchiladas to me.
It’s already 3, so only 2 more hours till the work day is done! woohoo 🙂
