Long run

Today, I did my long run all alone because Delta screwed up my travel and made me miss my group run on Saturday (bad Delta, BAD!)

I was dreading doing it alone, but it went pretty well! I did 3 min run/1 min walk intervals, and it was hard (especially the last mile), but I DID IT! :)

Only 6.9 miles to go for the half marathon on March 4. I need to add about 1.3 miles a week to make it in the 5 weeks. :)


Protein Shake
Ground turkey and spinach
"mexican' turkey, rice, and sweet potato

Friday and Saturday

So, Thursday,  we were in the hospital, so I figured I would just run on Friday instead of Thursday.
Friday, I did some on the treadmill and elliptical at the hotel, but my knee was bothering me some, so I didn't do my couch 2 5k.

Friday Food
breakfast - egg white omelet with all veggies and light cheese
Lunch - 1/4 deli sandwich at meeting with small amount of pasta salad and two cookies (oops)
Dinner - slice of pizza at the airport (oops)
Snack - biscoff cookies (oops)

Then, due to flight trouble, I didn't get to run with the crew on Saturday. :( I was pretty beat from my trip and getting in around 2:30am, so I didn't run.

Saturday Food
Breakfast - chicken biscuit
Cantina laredo chips, salsa, guacamole, and two tacos

So clearly, I had a rough few days. Back on track tomorrow

Workout Wednesday

Today, I did a session with Briana early in the morning.

I had a protein shake for breakfast,  beef stew for lunch, and chicken and veggies for dinner.

Couch to 5k Week 5, Day 2!

Done with Couch to 5k Day 2! It was pretty rough. I think the push of the long run Saturday, running Sunday, working out legs on Monday, and running again Tuesday had my legs a bit angry. No knee pain though. Ready to move on to Day 3! Starts getting a bit harder from here!

Breakfast - egg whites and avocado
Snack - Cliff kids bar
Lunch - beef stew, veggies, crackers, small cheese
Snack - organic guacamole and pita chips
Dinner - Chicken wrap and veggies
Small cheat - few handfuls of daughter's popcorn

Workout Monday

Today, I worked out with Briana bright and early. I still hate getting up to go early, but I love the feeling after. So, I continue to do it. :)

She was particularly evil today and had me doing that evil leg extension machine. For some reason, my knee started really hurting during it in the lower right area. :( The rest was good though. I was definitely sore after.


Breakfast - protein shake
Snack - granola bar
Lunch - chicken and veggies
Snack - Apple
Dinner - Chicken and veggies

Couch 2 5k Week 5 Day 1

I have been bad about blogging my runs, but I am going to try to be better about that and about posting my food.

So, today, I did the couch to 5k week 5 Day 1. Although, I just realized today that I am doign an imposter of the couch to 5k called ease into 5k. oops. I guess I downloaded the wrong app on my phone. Regardless, I have made it into the 5th week, so I might as well stay with it. It is very similar (I didnt' even notice), but it seems a tiny bit more gradual as C25k has you do a 20 minute run at the end of week 5 and this one has it as week 6 day 2. Gradual is good for me, so I am not complaining! :)

For food today (I was on my own - no Briana!)

Breakfast: Protein shake with 1/3 cup mixed berries and almond milk
Lunch - egg whites with brocolli, tomatoes, green and red peppers, mushrooms, and onions
Snack - MoJo Bar
Dinner - Lavash pizza with turkey pepporoni (5 pieces), brocolli, red and green peppers, mushrooms, onions, and tomatoes.

Didn't have morning snack as I didn't have shake until 10:45 and didn't have late snack as I wasn't hungry.

Saturday Long Run

Today, I started getting back into my previos schedule of Saturday long runs. A few weeks ago, I came out and did 1 minute run and 1 minute walk intervals for about 3.75 miles. However, since then, I have only been doing the couch to 5k plan and haven't been doing any long runs. Oops. Since i am signed up for a half marathon on March 4th, I needed to get busy. So, what do you do when you want to push yourself? You run with a group. :)

They were going to run 4 mins and walk 1, but I convinced them to do 3 min/1min since they were going 5 miles (YIKES!). I managed to keep up for about 4ish of the 5 miles, and I kind of kept up until 4.5. Them, I was all alone because my legs just couldn't keep up with them. It was great fun though, and I somehow managed to have just enough energy to run it in at the end as hard as I could.

So glad to be with my RBFF Carmen!!!
