We have made it to Target Practice Friday and I could not be more excited! Even though work has been insane, overall it’s been a pretty good week health wise.
Duathlon - Monday involved a 3 mile run followed by a 9 mile bike ride. While my ride was slow, my run was a little faster than my normal pace. I ran a consistent 9:30. I also went to spin class on Thursday night.
Improve Pace - Other than my 3 mile run on Monday, I didn’t focus on speed work this week.
50 Push Ups - On Tuesday I met with my personal trainer, Craig, where I did 4 sets of 10 push ups. However, Thursday was all about the push ups! Check out this workout…
I saw someone doing the stability ball knee ins with push ups on Tuesday and had to try them on my own!
Half Marathon – Saturday I got the big 9 mile run in with the Pasadena Pacers. That’s the longest distance I have ran so far! My pace was slower but I finished so that counts for something, right?
In addition to my 3 mile run on Monday, I got a 4 mile trail run in on Wednesday with my lunch time running buddy, Ben. (He is training for a full marathon and just started running the same time I did!)
Eating Clean - I have to say my eats weren’t too bad this week. The Bear worked late last night, so I had the opportunity to get take-out from my favorite vegan restaurant, Real Food Daily. In the past, I would have used this opportunity to veg out on junk food, but now it creates the perfect time to eat the healthy foods the Bear refuses to eat. I ordered the vegan veggie wrap and tropical green juice. Yum!
My friend, Hosanna, also gave me some homemade fig jam and Dolma, which is a dish similar to stuffed bell peppers. Doubleplus yum!
I have the day off from work! I’m planning on getting a long run in today instead of Saturday because I’m contemplating on attending the IDEA World Fitness Convention Saturday. I discovered it on a few other blogs this week and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to attend a fitness convention. I mean, it’s in my backyard. When else will I have chance like this?! What do you think? Should I go?
