I am going to jump right into Target Practice today. As you know from yesterday’s post, it has been a busy week and workouts have been almost non-existent.
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.
Duathlon - Being the smart person that I am, I decided to register for the Pacific Coast Duathlon when I really should be resting. My body was tired from many late nights so I only got a spin class in this week. Who needs training when you can enter races?! Of course, I am super excited for the race this weekend. The first run is on the sand! That should be a new challenge.
Improve Pace - Again, I didn’t work on pace this week. Sometimes life happens!
Handstand - This week will probably go down in the books as the worst training week ever! No handstand practice this week either.
Half Marathon – I wish I could give you good news here; I really do. Saturday I ran with the Pasadena Pacers. I was supposed to run 10 miles. My body had other plans. I struggled through 5 miles. On the plus side, I got in 6 easy miles this morning.
Eating Clean - Yay! I finally have something good to report! My eats were super clean this week. The Bear was in DC on travel for work (he’s coming home today!!!), so I was able to eat all the veggies my heart desired. As most of you know, I am one of those weirdos who actually loves all things green! Anyways, I should have some awesome recipe posts coming soon.
I also discovered Dark Chocolate Dreams this week! This stuff is amazing on a whole wheat english muffin with a little honey.
Next week I really need to get back into a training routine. I have had two “bad” weeks in a row and it’s time to find focus again. I hope this race will get me in the spirit!
Enjoy your weekend!
