Calaveras Big Trees State Park & Napa Pictures

This post is so late! I’m so sorry. I meant to post this last month. Anyway, I went to Calaveras Big Trees State Park and Napa last month with my family. My grandparents were visiting from Canada we decided to take them there.

Of course, we also did a little wine tasting (besides just taking pictures).

Have you been to Napa? If so, what was your favorite part about it?

Happy Sunday everyone. How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. I ran 6 slow miles this morning. It’s a start to my half marathon training.

Anyway, before I get into anything else, here’s my plan for the week.

Fitness Friday 127 (on a Saturday)

Happy Saturday everyone. How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. It’s been a stressful week (personal life) and I just have to get through the weekend and take it a day at a time.

Anyway, here were my workouts for the week. My half marathon training has been a epic fail.

Fitness Friday 8-19-16

 

As you guys can see, I only ran twice this week. That’s not so great for half marathon training. I am still deciding whether to run it but I might as well start training and see how it goes before signing up and paying for it.

Nutrition wise, as for the ratio of my macronutrients, I should be consuming more carbohydrates. It is harder than it sounds! I would say around 60% of my calories should come from carbohydrates. Each person is different and it would be best to work with a Sports Dietitian to find the right amount for you.

Anyway, that’s it for now.

How were your workouts this week? 

Weekly Meals and Workouts 112 + Possible Half Marathon???

Happy Sunday everyone. How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. It’s been hot for the past couple of days. I can’t wait for cooler weather to come.

So, like I mentioned yesterday, here’s my workout plan for the rest of the month.

August 2016 Workout Plan

Meals

Breakfasts- egg scramble w/ pico de gallo, avocado, chicken sausage OR English Muffin Pizza

Lunches- pasta, leftovers, or crab cakes

Dinners- rice, veggies, protein

Snacks-  fruits, nuts, chips?

So, I am also debating whether to run the Urban Cow Half Marathon this year. I ran it twice but I didn’t run it last year (though I had planned to.)

Half Marathon 10.2.2016

I will start training for it just in case but it doesn’t give me much time to train. I mean, I will be able to run it but not get a PR. I know that if I get back to the weight I was (around 125) when I ran my first half marathon, I can probably get a PR. But, I have gained weight since then (almost 140). I hope to lose weight!

My Running of the Elk Half Marathon earlier this year wasn’t good either but I still ran it in under 2:30. The longest run I did for that was 8 miles (clearly not enough for a half marathon). FYI, terrible idea to run a half marathon without training.

So, I will start training but I am not sure if I will run in it until the end of the month. Wish me luck!

What is your plan for the week? 

Do you have any tips for training? 

Fitness Friday 126 (on a Saturday)

Happy Saturday everyone. How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. This week has been quite a week, trying to get back into the swing of things after vacation and some other personal stuff going on.

Anyway, before anything else, here were my workouts for the week. I didn’t really workout much this week but I know I should be working out more.

Fitness Friday 8-12-16

My plan is to start running more again (at least 3 x a week) but I will see how I feel. What will most likely happen is that I will post the rest of the month’s planned workouts so that I can actually have a real workout plan. I will probably post it sometime tomorrow.

Also, I will be posting the weekly meals plan again as well. Things just have been going with the flow lately, especially since coming back from vacation and my grandparents that visited and stayed with us for a month last month.

That’s it for now.

How were your workouts this week?
