Today is the start of a new month which means new goals. I have been reading a lot of other blogs recently who have been discussing 'goal making' and I thought it would be fitting to make some of my own. :) For instance, Courteney is doing the 'Mile a day Challenge' where she is aiming to run at least one mile every day. Janet has dedicated a complete post entirely about goals, including things from PBing/racing in a 10k to trying out new smoothies. So then I got to thinking about my own goals.
What I was thinking I could do is to adjust Courteney's 'mile a day challenge' to my 'Crunch a day challenge.' Over the winter I
So, long story short---I'm going to do crunches every day. Even if it's just one set of 50. That has to be better than 0 sets of 50, right? :)
Last night's dinner was yet another hearty one. :) I was very Rungry from my eight miler yesterday and was craving pasta. I made some chicken, Linguine noodles with pesto and roasted broccoli. I think tonight I need to add more colour to my plate, but it was still very yummy!
I also have a goal to somehow showcase my race bling, in an obviously cool way. ;) I saw a few cool ideas online and one that I really liked that involved a curtain rod. It's simple and clean looking. I thought I could also hang pictures/bibs above....possibly. :)
Today's run was a 5 mile steady run. My subdivision had a planned power outage from 9-11 today so I got up and made coffee right away in fear that I would have to run without fuelling up properly! :0
I have a super sore blister on the side of my right foot.....a place that I have never ever had one, ever. I put a Band-Aid over it, but it still burned like crazy on the run. Tomorrow is a rest day so I'm hoping it will miraculously heal itself tonight. ;)
5 miles in the trail
Today's smoothie was again a mixture of:
- frozen pineapple
- frozen cranberries
- 1 scoop of whey protein
- ice cubes
- almond milk
What's your favourite smoothie recipe?
Well, I'm off to walk Miss Lola, and to check to see if my deck is all dry. :) How long does stain take to dry anyway?
I am so happy you took time to stop by and check out GGR!
Happy Running,Heather :)
