Good Morning! If you haven’t been already, please check out my sister’s new blog she just started yesterday 🙂 she’d love to have you!! Run Hokie Run!
This morning I started off on the right foot with a bowl of steamy oatmeal. I used half a cup of oats, 1 c of almond milk, 1/2 a banana, and a new ingredient I picked up this past week at Whole Foods. Organic cacao powder with Maca. I put 1/2 tsp in because I didn’t want to overpower the flavors. I will gradually add more, this was pretty good! I then topped the bowl off with 2 dried California Figs.
Last night at the gym I hit a milestone. I ran 4 miles on the treadmill in 39:50. I’ve never been a fan of the treadmill but with this weather there is no where else to run. I think 3 miles has been the furthest i’ve run on a treadmill before. Last night I knew I wanted to hit 3.5 and when I got there I dug down deep and knew that I could push for just 5 more minutes. and I DID ITTTTTT! On my week’s training plan, I have my long run this weekend being 6 miles. I’m going to aim for this and hopefully I’ll attain it. Having a month off of the training plan has been tough to jump back into but I can’t wait to run this race. I’ve also signed up for the Baltimore 10 miler on June 19 and am really excited for that one too! If you’re in the area you should DEFINITELY sign up, i’ve heard great things!!! http://www.Baltimoretenmiler.com
We can all have a little blog meet-up 🙂
Yoga and a short run are on the agenda tonight, with the Chinese New Year being this past weekend, it’s almost like it’s a second chance to get your resolutions straightened out, and re-focused. I needed that. Have a wonderful dayyyy!
