This week I’ve been fighting a cold, but I haven’t let it push my nutrition off track. Trader Joe’s is my favorite place to shop and this trip is full of goodness!
The kids were sick last week and I got it this week. So I took some extra rest time (which is fine for my training right now)! Plus, I always make sure to have my superfood and vitamin-packed Shakeology every day! I know this keeps me to feel the best possible.
As much as I want to start marathon training (for Boston!) I know it’s too early. I don’t want to peak too soon! Instead, I have been adding in more speed and plan to run a 5k on Thanksgiving day!
Motivation is not one of the things I lack! As a mom, I know that running is my “me time” and I don’t want to waste it! I am motivated by so many things every day. These two things happened this week and were especially motivating to me:
My 2 big kids at tumbling class doing things for the first time…
And watching my sister in her college swim meet where she PR’d in 3 events…
Monday: Sick Day 😦
Tuesday: Speed Workout at the track- 1 mile warm-up, 1 mile repeats X 3, 1 mile cool-down. My fast mile splits were 6:05, 6:16, & 6:23.
Wednesday: Hammer & Chisel DVD- ISO Strength Chisel
Thursday: Rest Day
Friday: Tempo Run- 7 miles at 8:16 average pace. Just before the rain…
Saturday: Hammer & Chisel DVD- Hammer Power and 5 miles with pick-ups at 8:36 average pace.
Sunday: Fast Run- 5 miles at 7:29 average pace with negative splits. I tried to stay out of breath for a lot of the time. I know that when I am racing, I am always out of breath so it’s good practice!
