on the road again

i went to a monday team for kids run for the first time last night, and it was great! i feel like it's nice to go during the week because it really pushes me to do a better workout than i might otherwise do on my own- oops!

plus, i still do need to get in a decent amount of mileage even if i don't run every day that the training plan indicates. this week we're moving up to 21 miles, which is a lot for me! even when i was training for my half marathons, i generally limited running to 3 days a week, and usually only with the much longer runs would i approach 20 miles. i found it to be easier on my body.

i'm already feeling all kinds a sore, and i don't want to be too beat up by the time the marathon rolls around!

anyway, i'm hoping the rain holds off for tonight's running class, and tomorrow i get an "easy" day with some strength- a total body conditioning class.

yesterday, i had a little snack before heading off to team for kids:
  • a handful of kashi cereal
  • 1 kiwi

the kiwi was fabulous- i've had them for a while but they finally just got nice and ripe-yum!

after tfk i stopped at trader joe's on my way home and picked up a few things since i didn't have a chance to go to the grocery store this weekend.

when i got home, i made a great dinner:
  • brown rice
  • kidney beans
  • broccoli and cauliflower
  • tomato
  • salsa
  • mexican blend cheese
i also had some veggie flax seed tortilla chips on the side (not pictured)

honestly- it was delicious (even though the picture isn't great) and i was stuffed! all the veggies really add a lot of volume to the plate and fill you up :)

alright, today i am determined to purchase a foam roller- hopefully they have one at the running store near my office. every day i come home saying how much i wish i had one! it's about time i took the plunge...

hope everyone has a lovely tuesday!

  1. Dude, foam rollers are clutch. And you can go to Home Depot and get a foam pipe thing for about half the cost! But really, they are super helpful. I, personally, use mine while watching "The Daily Show" on Hulu.
