Good morning and happy hottest Wednesday of the year so far! It’s supposed to get up to 99º today… eek. I woke up today feeling GOOD though definitely didn’t wake up before my alarm with enough time to go out for a run before work… 🙂
I did have time to throw together a simple but delicious breakfast which I ate outside on my balcony in the sun (before it was TOO hot).
Sometimes simple breakfasts are the best. This bowl had:
- 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt (2 pts)
- 1 cup blueberries (1 pts)
- 1/4 cup raw rolled oats (1 pt)
- cinnamon (0 pts)
This bowl was packed with protein, antioxidants, fiber, whole grains, and deliciousness. Yum.
In other exciting news, I’ve signed up for 3 races in preparation for my half-marathon in September! I’ve been working out a training plan which I will share once I have it all set in stone, but I’m largely working off the Hal Higdon Novice Half Marathon Training Plan, but changing it around a bit to accommodate dates where I’ll be out of town, and fitting in Bikram yoga and bike riding so that I can still keep my fitness routine well rounded.
The three races are…
July 16th – Run for the Gulf 5k
July 24th – Crystal City Twilighter 5k
August 28th – Blue Crab Bolt 10k
September 19th – Philly Rock N Roll Half Marathon
It feels so good to have these races on my calendar because I haven’t had anything since the Love the Run You’re With 5k back in February. Races always keep me on track with my running, plus give me something to look forward to! Plus, the money goes to charity so it’s something I can feel good about spending my money on. All pluses!
Do you run in road races? What do you have coming up that you’re looking forward to, or what race have you run in recently/how was it? If not, why not? Is running not your thing?
