Miles 3&6 were on a trail with lots of roots, that's why they are the slower miles. Overall the whole run felt great :D I was pushing it a little for a long run (darn garmin), but I felt strong and confident. I am experiencing some tummy pains now though : / . I may not have hydrated enough, as it was finally warm enough to get some sweat on :)
So I've been thinking about my goals for this upcoming half and trying to think about what I am willing to train for. Right now I am saying I would like to go sub 1:45. Possibly if I trained my butt off for the next 5 weeks I could go considerably lower, but for this particular race I am not wanting to put 100% training effort in. We will see how the next few weeks go, but as most of my spring/summer races will be shorter stuff, I'd prefer to train for maximum performance in those.
It is my first half and I really just want to enjoy it :)
2. Yesterday I discovered the easiest, most awesome way to make healthy soft serve at home! I was on Oh She Glows (which btw Angela just raised over $7,000 for a Japan Disaster Fund. . . in little over a day) and discovered the following amazing and amazingly simple recipe for banana and cherry soft serve (credit also to ChoosingRaw for the initial post).
Step 1: Throw frozen banana in food processor
Step 2: Process
And if you just want banana soft serve, you're done!
What I did is take half out so I could have some banana and left some in to make Cherry Banana :)
To make Cherry Banana (mostly cherry flavored):
Add Frozen Cherries:
Process on Grind:
With some walnuts for protein and a bit of chocolate just cause:
I had this today as my post run snack :D
3. If you have 4 minutes to spare today and want to get your booty kicked, try out yesterday's bodyrock workout:
And on a final note: I am a little sad that no one knew what "Jlp" was from (but not that sad, cause there were so many SYTCD and Always Sunny lovers :D) So here is a BIG hint:
Did anyone else see the "Jlp" part? I'm obsessed with how she said that line :D
