Happy Sunday everyone! How are you guys doing today? I’m doing fine, thank you very much. I started my day off with running 10 miles, which was pretty nice.
I noticed that my running is better in the early morning than when I run in the afternoon. Does anyone else feel that way while running? I guess it’s because I like watching the sunrise as I run along the creek.
Anyway, I can’t believe that the 10 mile run is next weekend, the 27th. I pretty much accepted the fact that I won’t be going the pace I went for my first half-marathon. My calves have been tight and my knees start feeling it after a while. I am cutting down (a little bit) on my running this week because of the race Sunday. I hope the adrenaline rush will get me to run faster!
Sunday- 10 mile run
Monday- 6 mile run
Tuesday- 6 mile run
Wednesday- yoga or walk
Thursday- 4 mile run + strength
I will do my best to stretch and foam roll after every workout.
Breakfast: oatmeal+pb+chia seeds OR egg and cheese sandwich on whole wheat bread (with fruit!)
Lunch: leftovers from dinner
Snack: kashi granola bar (on sale at Costco!) + fruit
Dinner: brown rice, veggies, egg/tofu or another protein source
To meal prep, you can always cook the brown rice ahead of time. Pre-cut the vegetables and hard boil the eggs! They will keep in the fridge. I’m the type of person that normally likes cooking meals at night and taking leftovers for lunch. It saves a lot of time. =)
And, guess what! I ate cheese pizza today with an Izze Sparkling Clementine drink. What I’m saying is that it’s okay to indulge and eat something else once in a while. But, you should stick to your meal plan for the most part! I also baked whole wheat chocolate chip cookies yesterday. They are so delicious!
What do you have planned for the week?
Do you have any times with handling calf tightness? I tried foam rolling and stretching with no luck.
P.S. I just checked the weather and it’s suppose to rain on race day! Oh well. I’ll bear with it!
