I had a great run today! Day two of my half-marathon training program.
Today was my 3 mile tempo-run:
- 0.10 mile walking warm-up, incline 7, speed 3.5
- 3 mile Tempo run (0.5 miles at 5.5 mph, incline 7; 2 miles at 6.0 mph, incline 7; 0.5 miles at 5.5 mph, incline 7)
- 0.10 mile cool down
- Total duration: 35 mins.
- Max heart rate: 174 bpm (89% of max)
- Avg heart rate: 159 bpm (82% of max)
Tuesdays are Intensity Tuesdays according to my training program!
And let me tell you this run today was intense! I was dripping in sweat at the end of the workout and I was out of breath for most of the workout thanks to the lucky incline 7. :D
Wednesday is my ‘off’ day as I have to go into work early. I am looking forward to the rest!
Curious what I fuel my body with while at work?
From left to right:
- 1 heaping cup of Spelt Cereal
- 2 servings of baby carrots
- 1/3 cup organic spaghetti sauce (I like dipping my bread in it!)
- 2 slices Ekiezel Sesame Seed Bread
- My homemade Banana Bread Larabar
- 1 large Gala Apple, chopped
- 1 Cashew Cookie Larabar
My poor bread is missing its’ Tofurkey today. I ran out of Tofurkey so my lunch will be missing some protein and probably won’t keep me AS full as usual. I must remember to get some tonight!
I always save the Larabar for my drive home from work.
It gives me something to look forward to at the end of a long day. It also makes my hectic drive home seem a bit more pleasurable. :D I also don’t arrive at home ravenous for dinner.
I’ve said it before and I will say it again- nuts are a WONDER food for killing the appetite!
My lunches are high in volume and keep my hunger at bay for the entire day. I have my veggies and cereal in the morning, and save the apple for the afternoon. And of course the Larabar for the drive home. I find spreading out my lunch helps prevent blood sugar crashes.
And just as I thought my morning was going fabulous….Sketchie peed on our bed!!!! ahhhhh. I’m so upset…he peed right through to the down duvet comforter. We have no washing machine to wash it either, because it is broken and our new ones don’t arrive until Friday!!! Now I really gotta rush to get out the door!
Have a great day everyone! Stay tuned for my cookbook collection :D
…Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think, say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day…I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.
