I would like to start by saying Congratulations to my sister Stacey for running her first race today. I am so proud of you. She race an 8k, she is a rockstar!
Today is a rest day, which is a good thing because we are getting quite a bit of snow right now. We went away for the night Friday and I have to say that I am MIGHTY proud of myself. Not only did I eat well, (even eating out) I ran too. Anytime we go out I usually blow it, big time. French fries are one of my best friends, so I made sure to eat places that didn’t serve them. Problem solved!
Usually I will throw some sort of workout wear in my bag “just in case” and then don’t use them. Yesterday morning D.H. and I got up had breakfast and went for a run. I had a 3 mile recovery on the plan but we decided to go for 4.5 because we were on this really cool path. I kind of wish it would have been a long run day.
Three weeks till the 10k with my SIL. I had so much fun at the Lucky 7 I can’t wait to run with her again. After that I will have 6 weeks till the big 13.
It is SB for the kids but I plan on sticking to my workout schedule as much as possible. Here is what this week looks like:
Monday- 5 miles @ race pace (9:59 for now)
Tuesday- 3 miles @ recovery pace
Wednesday- Rest day/20 minute shred
Thursday- Long run, 8 miles
Friday- cross-train/ shred
Sunday- 3 miles @ recovery pace/Shred
Saturday and Sundays are interchangeable, I just need to make sure one of them is a non-running day. We will probably spend some time up at the mountain snowboarding this week too. I also plan on dropping my calories a little more this week. I was too hungry last week to get them as low as I want (12-1300).
***Sorry no pictures today, I made the words purple so it wouldn't be so boring.
