Hey! Hope your Tuesday was happy.
I can’t believe that today was the start of my 4th week of training. Where does the time go!?
* Time management– I hit the snooze button a few times this past week which meant that my runs were hurried, stretch sesh was miniscule, and breakfast was rushed/brought to work with me.
Goal this week: Give myself more time in the morning to stretch, eat, and recover instead of rushing off to work. I think packing my lunch & snack at night will help. Also, I will set my running clothes out the night before so I don’t lag as much at the crack of dawn.
*Poor hydration- Wicked headache around 10 AM ?? Oh ya, I forgot to drink water!
Goal this week: Bring my Nuun to work with me & start drinking a full glass of water when I get back from my run.
*Week 3 was challenging, but I learned a lot and I ended the week with a sweet PR at an awesome new race. You can read the recap here. I was overjoyed when I saw the official race results last night. 53 minutes & 8th out of 177 in my age category. For me, this is pretty exciting, considering I was running 9-10 minute miles this time last year! It also motivates me to keep training, keep waking up early, and to keep my chin up when all I really want to do is whine.
Favorite meal of the week:
This one was just too easy…
Another 3 miles (my training schedule has a ton of 3 mile runs the first 5 weeks)
To celebrate my success & inspire me to keep going, I treated myself with these babies…
