Coming home from work, eating dinner, going out on the boat, then getting a run in = perfect!
Our boat ride made me realize just how lucky we are to live where we live! I am so thankful!
Today was a pretty good day for eating.
Breakfast: blueberry special K (which actually sounds pretty darn good right now)
Snack: plain yogurt, a splash of syrup & granola
Lunch: Today I had a OSHA/Hipaa compliance luncheon, so I was subjected to whatever they had for us to eat.. They had stuffed shells, (I had one), some ham (i had none), some asapargus (which I tried for the first time, not a fan, at least not how they had it prepared) and they had some fresh fruit..which was a mixture of several things cut up and some of it I had no idea what it was, and it was gross. I ate the grapes and cantaloupe.
Snack: that meeting was 2 hrs, and I was hungry by time I got back to the office. I had lowfat cottage cheese w/ fresh blueberries
Dinner: grilled chicken & steamed broccoli. mmmm mmm good!
My super duper long marathon training plan says that today is a 30 min run. I really don’t like measuring my runs in time unless I have to. An example of having to measure it in time would be last night when I only had about 2o minutes while Chris made dinner. I got in what mileage I could and that was that. I really prefer to go by miles, I don’t really know why, it just makes me feel better I suppose. That is one thing that bothers me about this training plan. The other thing that bothers me is that the weekly runs never increase, through out the whole 30 wk plan it’s a 30 min run Tues & Thurs. I don’t feel like I will get adequate training, I feel like its minimal running. With that being said, I did choose the Jeff Galloway training plan for runners/walkers.
I kinda got off track there, so about today’s run. It was scheduled to be 30 min, it turned into a 4mi run. 4 miles on the treadmill, @9:04 pace, finished in 36:17. It was a really great run, I feel like I pushed myself some to complete the 4 miles in less then 37 minutes. I must say though, that my two other 4 mile runs were outdoor, so I can’t give myself to much credit for finishing quicker today then on my previous 4 mile runs. I hope to get a 4miler in on Thursday outside, hopefully I can maintain a good pace!
According to my training plan tomorrow is a rest day. I’ll probably take it, I need to get some homework done! S-l-a-c-k-e-r!
When I was at Publix today I saw this brochure for their upcoming Family Firtness Weekend! They offer a Triathlon, Duathlon, and a 5k. I would love to do the Duathlon, but I am so unprepared, like, don’t even have a bike unprepared. I don’t want to look like an idiot out there. I would obviously not be competing. I would just be participating. Meh. Maybe I’ll just run the 5k that is the night before the Duathlon & the Triathlon! I would really love to go & watch though, however, I don’t think I’m going to get Chris to Ft. Desoto to watch. Oh, and I’m reading on the website you have to be a USAT member.. I better think about this a little more, plan a little better, train some, then I could register for something like this.. That sounds like a better plan. =)
I’ll leave you with a really bumpy video of our ride back in to the boat ramp. It’s bumpy. What do you expect on a 14ft jon boat!
