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.
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.
Breakfast - chicken biscuit
Cantina laredo chips, salsa, guacamole, and two tacos
So clearly, I had a rough few days. Back on track tomorrow
Breakfast - egg whites and protein pancakes with agave
Snack - rabbit crackers (like goldfish but healthier)
Lunch - chef salad
Snack - biscoff cookies on plane
Dinner - scallops and couscous and butternut squash and a piece of bread
Oh yeah, and some red wine. oops
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
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
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.
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.
I have worked in healthcare technology since 1996 when it wasn't very widespread. We all thought that EMRs would be common by the year 2000. HA. I strongly believe in the power of patients, and I work to make life better for patients and their families every day. I am a proud supporter of Cure JM, a nonprofit searching for a cure for Juvenile Myositis. I love the University of Tennessee and SEC football. I believe in family and cherish every minute I get to spend with mind.
