Running Totals/Fit Mommy Friday~First 5K of the Season Tomorrow!
I have finally been able to get in a full-week of training this week, for THIS RACE...woohoo! The past few weeks have been so sporadic that I didn't even want to post the numbers. Even though runs have been hit or miss, I have been able to continue lengthening my long runs each week.
Monday-47 minutes (approx. 4.2 miles)
Tuesday-40 minutes (approx. 3.5 miles)
Wednesday-45 minutes (approx 4 miles)
Thursday-30 minutes (approx 2.5 miles) plus 4 sets of strides
Tomorrow-Running 5K for local pregnancy center
After tomorrow's 5K, I will have logged around 17.5 miles this week. I am extremely pleased with this. I also have a new pair of Asics on the way, which my knees are telling me that I need desperately.
I've changed my diet as well. While training, I am cutting out almost all wheat products, limiting dairy, increasing my soy intake and focusing on fruit, vegetables, lean meats and rice versus pasta. My body operates better on this type of diet, a lesson I learned from "Eating Right 4 Your Blood Type" which has proven to be very accurate for me. In the future I will share more about my findings from this intriguing book.
Oh...and I am drinking water like a fish. I have a minimum of 64oz. daily, usually more.
Now, if I can just find the motivation to get up at 6 in the morning to run a 5K in the not-so-warm rain....
