A Day of Clean Eats

I’m jumping right into What I Ate Wednesday today, so thanks to Jenn for hosting! And let’s get the ball rollin’!

Peas and Crayons

As a foodie and someone who’s gotta run early, breakfast is the first thing on my mind when I wake up. The night before, I washed and chopped up a lot of celery that needed to be juiced so, I quickly grabbed some greens and a couple of carrots to add to the celery. It was delicious!

About 20 minutes later, I grabbed some boiled eggs (prepped the night before) and a handful of Cascadian Farm cereal. I stayed full for hours, it seemed. Eating good proteins, carbs, and having energizing juice in the morning really keeps me going.

After breakfast, I went running 3.25 miles. Warmed up nice and easy the first 2 miles and then 6 crazy hill repeats, then ran till I got home!

Then I completed 3 rounds of that arm workout!

Yep, super sore this morning…

WOD: 2 miles at 9:30/mile pace, 20 minute free motion cross cable workout (target quads, back and arms), 9 min mile, 30 push-ups. Lacking energy, glad it's over.

Lunch was kind of too early for me, so I ended up not eating any of those chickpeas or the avocado. It just looked unappetizing as soon as I sat down to eat.

So I replaced the chickpeas and avocado with a baked quest bar because…who wouldn’t?

And I tried to take a decent picture of my dinner, but it was rainy outside and the lighting just sucked…so yeah, this is what you get stuck with.

Organic Whole Wheat pasta, meat sauce, lots of fresh basil, and baked parmesan artichokes!

No picture on Friday because I took this day to leave my phone at home and went out for several hours with family. Taking time off of social media is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

Getting 8 miles in on Saturday even though I was aiming for 10. It was rainy, my stomach was hurting, and I felt sluggish. But 8 miles was completed! Thankful I can run that many steps

Half Marathon Training Week #2

Questions:

  • Any funny running stories last week?
  • What is your favorite Sunday morning breakfast?

Half Marathon Training Plan Week #1

Hi friends! Hope your weekend has been marvelous! Some of you voted last week and wanted some more running posts on the blog, which makes sense…

On Friday, I decided 100% that I’m doing a November half marathon. I haven’t really decided which one I’m going to do, but I know I’m doing one in November and then I’ll be doing another one in February!

So, what my plan is, is that that for all of July, I’m going to slowly get my mileage up and keep it consistent. I want to get in 4 long runs this month and when August hits, that’s when I’ll be adding in some crazy speed work.

I really wanted to share my week by week training with you every Sunday or Monday and I hope this might be resourceful for some of my readers! I’m off to run right now, but here’s this week’s training! I’m hoping to stick to it as much as possible. We shall see!
