borrowed stole the idea for the Target Practice Friday series from the ladies over at Fit.Fun.Femme. I do things a little differently, but ultimately it’s where I share my progress on my short term goals, a.k.a targets.
Woo! Lucky number 23! Hopefully this is a good Traget Practice because that is my favorite number. Why is 23 my lucky number? Well first off, I was born on the 23rd. Though I also like all combinations of 23. For example, 5 (2+3=5) was my jersey number in lacrosse and softball. But mostly I just like the oddity of it! Enough about numbers already… let’s dig into Target Practice.
Marathon – Saturday started with an 8 mile run that was somewhat on the slow side for me. I was super sore from my workout the Thursday before, so I took it easy. Luckily I met a very nice girl at Team NutriBullet who I chatted with for the entire run. I also ran 3.5 miles on Tuesday, 3 miles last night, and hopefully I will get another 3 miles in today before our long run tomorrow. Total miles this week: 17.5… not quite my 30 mile goal!
Improve Pace - One of the 3 mile runs was on the treadmill, so I worked on interval training. I really need to start experimenting with hill drills and tempo runs though. Megan posted a speedwork routine that I really want to try out next week.
Crow poses might help with handstand training!
Thing 2 thinks she is helping, but she is pretty freakin adorable!
Eating Clean - HA HA HA my eats were horrible this week. I had three holiday parties, so there was pizza, cookies, Chinese food, and cupcakes. I tried to make up for the unhealthy lunches with very clean breakfast and dinner meals. All week I started the day out right with a NutriBullet smoothie and ended the day with veggies and protein. My body hasn’t completely revolted, so I think this strategy is working!
