Happy Tuesday friends!
I have successfully finished week one of my Marathon training program. I look forward to sharing my weekly gains, struggles, thoughts, eats, inspiration and tips with you as I train for the Nike Women’s Marathon!!
A few struggles this past week included:
* Not getting enough sleep.
Goal this week: Go to bed a little earlier since I am waking up at 5:00 AM and then working a 9 hour day. Being tired for one week works, but WON’T work for the next 18.
*Not bringing enough/the right food to work.
Goal this week: Pack my lunch/snack at night so I can just grab it and go. Up my protein intake by adding in a protein shake after long-ish runs or weight train days.
I also made some great strides in the past week: PR in average min/mile, woke up at the crack of dawn for 4 workouts, and stuck to the schedule!
My Favorite meal of the week: kale, quinoa, avocado, almond, veg, & roasted organic chicken salad. IN FOODIE HEAVEN.
Yesterday ‘s training:
3 fast (for me!!!) miles. I am loving that the training program starts out with several 3 milers, such a perfect distance for the early morning!
Keep on kicking butt in whatever you are doing!!!
Do you have any goals for the week/month/year?
How do you get inspired?
