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.
Let me start of this Target Practice by admitting that I had every intention to post three times this week. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to get a Wednesday post in. Oh well! I should have a lot of recipes coming your way next week.
Marathon – Last Saturday I started the week with a 12 mile run with Team NutriBullet. I am pretty happy to say it was pain free which is great because my shin splint is healing. However, I didn’t want to push it too much this week, so I only got in a few other short runs. My trainer John, from Shaka Runners, suggest we run between 4 and 8 miles on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I definitely need to work on getting more miles in each week.
Improve Pace - Since I am focusing on healing my shin splint, I didn’t work on speed drills. Instead I ran 3 miles that consisted of hill repeats with the Dog Haus Running Club on Tuesday.
Handstand – Just keep handstanding, just keep handstanding, just keep handstanding. One day I won’t need a wall!
Eating Clean - I tried something new this week! For the first time, I planned out my lunches for the week on Sunday. I have been getting sick of salads and since I drink most of my greens thanks to the Nutribullet these days, I decided to go with salmon, quinoa, and broccoli. It was really tasty all week long! I was surprised that it was still good on Thursday. I may just have to do more meal planning in the future because it’s a great way to avoid buying “healthy” food covered in “junk” oils from the cafeteria.
