I reluctantly woke up this morning at 6 a.m.
and forgetting what I needed to do.
Then I remembered.
Today is the first day of my recommittment.
I'm committing myself to
more whole grains
breathing, breathing, breathing
The "breathing" part is to conjure up more patience for the challenges that I'm facing about
being a stay-at-home-mom to 2 yo twins
maintaining my weight loss
getting leaner and stronger core
Despite how I woke up this morning, I actually had a great run! I ran a 9:43 pace! This is definitely a new personal best!
I did fartleks. That's right. That's not a "type-o."
Fartlek is a form of road running or cross country running in which the runner, usually solo, varies the pace significantly during the run. It is usually regarded as an advanced training technique, for the experienced runner who has been using interval training to develop speed and to raise the anaerobic threshold. However, the 'average' runner can also benefit from a simplified form of Fartlek training, to develop self-awareness and to introduce variety into the training program.I felt like I could've ran another mile, but I am just coming back from injury. I need to pace myself.
Today's Fuel: 1 cup oj, whole grains, nectarine, turkey bacon-covered shrimp and grits, steamed broccoli
Today's Activities: 3.6 mile run, upper body with free weights
Have a happy and healthy day!
