Well hello friends!
Short 3 mile treadmill jog.
Taught 45 minute BOSU Blast class at the gym.
Treadmill run- 5.5 miles with 4 of them mile repeats at AT pace with 1 minute rest in between. My pace for the repeats was 6:44 for the first 2 miles, 6:40 for the third and then 6:35 for the forth.
Yep, even with an old episode of Friends on to distract me, it was rough. Eating an entire kabocha squash for lunch with all the fixings was not the best idea before a pretty intense run.
Oh, you want to see our lunch date?
The boys got whole wheat SunButter sandwiches, Costco Seaweed Snacks, roasted squash (they’re not big fans) and a fuyu.
Just a grand old time (I don’t look tired at all or anything)
with a grand old huge bowl of roasted sweet squash (kabocha and delicata) with some GNC vanilla dream protein frosting, PB2 pumpkin dip (recipe to come), Better’n Peanut Butter and regular peanut butter.
Perfect running fuel. Ha.
welcome to DAY 2 of STUFT Mama’s favorite things.
For today, since I’m
a little extremely tired and I’m blaming my extra training from my coach, I have a little running related surprise for you.
Obviously I liked the book so much that I not only bought one for myself, but bought one for one of you.
I couldn’t resist. It’s such an easy read and pretty much gives you everything you need to know including three different 20-week training plans (beginning, intermediate and advanced). One of those plans actually looks pretty darn similar to the one he’s got me on. Hmmm….. Interesting.
One of you lucky winners and I could be training buddies. That’ fun, right? He he.
Here’s a little peak at the book contents.
He even shares a little bathroom racing story in there (p. 276). We’ve all had one of those a time or two, haven’t we? Remember mine at the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon?
Which reminds me, ever since that race I’ve gotten smart about my incognito diaper wearing when needed. I was even quote on Shape.com the other day.
I’m still not sure if that’s something I should be proud of or not.
I have a signed copy of the book to give way. I also picked up some fun little magnet flashlights.
I’ll throw one in there for you too!
I also managed to shove some Power Bars in my cool bag, but I’m not sure they’d travel well, so I’ll just hang on to those.
I’ll make up for it with a Flat Kitty. That’s fair.
So, for DAY 2, you will get:
a signed copy of Running a Marathon for Dummies,
a cool magnet flashlight
your very own Flat Kitty.
All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment here telling me your running goals for this upcoming year if you have any. A certain pace, distance, race, etc.
Or…. just your thoughts on running. Love it, hate it, training for something, want to run a marathon, don’t even want to watch a marathon, will only do it while watching Kelly and Michael on TV (that will be me this morning), etc.
