Wow – the last 2 days have been great! I can’t wait for full blown spring! Yesterday was high 50s, today was mid/high 60s! We took our little guy to the loop we’ve been doing, I ran it and Bill walked him in the stroller. I felt like I was going pretty fast, but then, not really. My nike+ seems to be lacking battery power – has anyone replaced this? I just used my ipod and I know the length of the loop, and I got 4 miles/35:13/8:49 – I’m not sure how accurate that was and I’m not sure I felt that fast. But, for now, I’ll take it!
Today, my inner thighs are a good sore and upper back could use a nice massage. My knees hurt a little bit but didn’t hurt at all during either run.
What is bad is that I am kind of ignoring my training plan, so I need to at least plan the rest of the long runs to make sure I am getting in the mileage. I am starting to get nervous!
There are 6 weeks to go. What do you think of 13 – 16- 18/20 – 14- 8 ? It sounds manageable to me besides that I don’t know about the 18/20 without a partner but I’m sure I’ll get it done somehow.
What is good is that I was inspired by the healthy A.B. and made a yummy smoothie today with pineapple, blackberries, blueberries, banana, protein powder and milk. Yummy! Lots of fruit and protein.
My breakfasts have all been oatmeal with PB, flaxseed ground and wheatgerm. Only problem starting the day with the PB is eating too much of it. It’s almost gone (at least the good flavors) so that shouldn’t be a problem until they have a 50% and free shipping thing going on again (Naturally Nutty).
I’m looking up recipes to make something with sweet potatoes tonight. We’ll see how far I get. But I want to up the veggies and fruits! If you have a sweet potato recipe send it along!
Do you have an Iphone? I have the ipod touch but it sits in a basket at home. I got it at work for using technology to try out. I don’t use it in the classroom at all. But, here are some great apps for the iPhone that you could check out.
Hopefully the weather sticks around!! : ) One more easy run planned for tomorrow, outside let’s hope!
