I haven't done a Friday 5 post in for-ev-er! Clearly I had to put an end to that streak tonight. Enjoy!
1. Strength Training!
Now that I am on vacation I have no excuse in the whole wide world to use against physically getting my butt to the gym. None. I've made it my mission to get there at least, at LEAST 3 times a week. So far so good. ;)
|Apparently this is my gym face? LOL. After my workout I absolutely loved my blueberry orange smoothie!!!|
2. My Garden!
One of my favourite summer things is gardening. This year I tried a few veggies to see how they'd make out. I was beyond stoked this week when I saw some eensy weensy tomatoes popping out!
A green pepper!!!
|I totally plan on making the world's smallest batch of salsa with my tomatoes, peppers, chives and cilantro when they're ready....lol.|
3. Training Runs!
The one thing I love about marathon training is having a plan! I'm working very hard to stick to the plan and that means including speed work...dun dun dun!
This week for my intervals I drove up to the Coke Plant and parked my car because there's a big awesome paved straight-away that runs about 3/4 of a mile long. Oh yeah. ;)
Obviously there were some easy runs as well this week...
I'm trying super hard to watch my diet in terms of quality nutrition...admittedly it's tough at times, lol. Usually when I come home from the gym I'm starved! Sometimes I do this:
Last night was seafood night...mmm.
While I was in bed this morning I read my friend Meg's awesome post related to food and nutrition and thought it was fantastic! Check it out.
5. Chicago Marathon Corral Preliminary Assignment!
Today I was excited to see this in my email! It's a preliminary corral slot, whatever that means...lol. Apparently in August I'll receive a final corral placement, but for right now I'm in Wave 1 Corral B. Chicago is brand new to me so I'm not really sure what this means. Anyone run Chicago before and have this change much?
Those are my Friday 5. :) I also had a fun Nacho date with Erin this week and I completely spaced on taking a photo. :( We were much too busy chatting about PLL...lol.
Don't forget to enter the coupon code for a 10% off a pair of tiux compression socks!!! They have free Canada and U.S. shipping also. ;)
On Wednesday I'm off to NL to visit my family! I'll also be running the Tely 10 next Sunday!!! Who else is running the Tely 10???
Thanks for stopping by to visit GGR on this beautiful Friday evening.
