Next Race: April 13th - Half Marathon
This whole training plan thing...? Let's just say I've made some creative adjustments to it. As in only running once a week. But the week wasn't a total waste; I had my longest run ever- 15 miles! I'm running my next half with my friend and this will be her first half marathon. She really wanted to train up to 15 miles before the half, so I've just been going along with her training plan. That 15 miles really kicked my butt. The last mile I was struggling so much. My stomach was growling and I was starting to get faint, a sure sign I needed to eat a bigger breakfast. Overall, I'm super excited I made it! I like to think of it as the beginning of marathon training. :)
This week I'm taking Lauren's advice to heart- you get fit at the gym and lose weight in the kitchen. Since it's just me, I have been so unmotivated to cook a real healthy meal. Take-out is easy, but it's really starting to weigh on me. Literally. This week it all changes. Lunches: salad greens with mandarin oranges and papaya poppyseed dressing. Dinner: grilled chicken, asparagus and pasta lightly tossed in a pesto sauce. Snacks: cheddar cheese, yogurt or strawberries.
I've been addicted to these!
