Something Old (or just familiar)
Tonight’s training called for a 1.5 mile run. Because I don’t have a Garmin or a marked trail for half miles, I headed to the Y to hit the treadmill for this run like I did on Monday. It wasn’t quite as difficult, and I didn’t catch myself wanting to walk as much as I did on Monday. After a half mile, my legs felt like concrete bricks. But I kept going. I even wore my NYC Half Marathon shirt for extra motivation today. 🙂 But I forgot to take a picture. Whoops!
I finished 1.5 miles in 16:10, a 10:46 pace. No walking! Just a little slower than I was on Monday.
But I accidentally left my headphones at home, so I had to run music-less today, and it actually didn’t even phase me.
I’ve just run 3 consecutive days. They haven’t been long distances, but considering I’ve always taken a rest day in between runs, I think I’ve done really well this week. I’m proud 🙂
I plan on doing another 5K this Sunday!
I’ve been trying to think of some after-dinner snacks other than ice cream that would satisfy my sweet tooth, and I’ve also been craving the Oikos Greek yogurt since seeing it on Meghann’s blog. So I combined the two and ended up FINALLY finding the yogurt and made it my dessert this evening! I’ve been searching store after store for this yogurt. I didn’t know it was such a rarity around here.
I tried the Chocolate flavor, and it was delicious and just the right sweetness!
Surprise! Chocolate hidden underneath.
Tomorrow’s Friday! Do you have any interesting weekend plans? I’ll be running the 5K on Sunday, but Saturday will be full of packing for my big move!
