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....

I am connecting this post to Fit Mommy Friday at Got Chai?


  1. I am proud of and also very inspired by your commitment. Love...Mother :)

  2. Way to go! You are definitely one Fit Mommy!

    I hope that you'll have a great time tomorrow.

  3. You're doing great! I'd love for you to share about the "eating for your blood type" book. I have heard that one mentioned before, and I've been curious about it.

    That is great that you're going to be running for your local Crisis Pregnancy Center. I think ours has a run coming up as well. :)

  4. I've heard of that book before. It's supposed to be very good and helping your system get back online. And good for you with all your running! You are amazing! We're running in our 2nd 5K on Saturday and I've not been training at all like I should. oh well :)

  5. Gee whiz, girl!!! Your motivation puts me to shame! LOL I think that's awesome! While I've yet to read that book, I've heard many good things about it. I might just have to put a hold on it through our library. ;) Great post!
