I have been so busy/lazy lately. I managed not to run for an entire week. I had Sophia by myself this evening since the husband has softball, so I only ran one mile, and it felt so good!
The Oklahoma City Go Girl half marathon; I had a great 6 miles.. Then I got a horrible pain in my calf I had to sit for a few minutes, after massaging my calf for a bit I got back up and jog/walked the last 7 miles and honestly it was horrible I wanted to quit so bad, but I finished! I feel like I need to run another half to prove to myself I can!! The Monday after the run I went to the Dr to have it checked out. And the Dr said I had Calf Strain, caused by not stretching and warming up the right way. The following week I rested and took it easy, then eased in with a mile and a lot of stretching. I’m a lot better I just need to stretch, stretch, stretch. I haven’t run more than 3 miles since this half almost a month ago. I need to sign up for a run and then I’ll have some motivation!
We got our sweet baby girl Sophia a treadmill for her third birthday, she always asks to run on my treadmil after I finish a run. So when I saw this treadmill on a daily sale site I had to get it for her. And WINNER WINNER SHE LOVES IT!!
I hope you enjoy the video of her running as much as I do!! So cute!
I feel like my training is going great so far.
I was out sick all week last week so I missed all my training runs.
I haven’t posted since the 1/11 so my recap for that week is
1/11 – 12.11mi (treadmill) avg pace 13:25
1/18 – 9.50mi outside/treadmill avg pace 13:45
I’ve been doing most of my training in the treadmill mostly because it’s convenient I usually run in the evening, after running
outside last week I’ve decided that I’m going to start making an effort to run my long run outside the treadmill gets boring and I need the road training.
New SHOES.. I picked up some new Saucony’s guides, not my first choice but they are ok.
I was broken hearted when I couldn’t find one pair of my favorite kinvara4’s they upgraded to kinvara 5’s I might get them next time.
I’m less confident this week than I was before running outside this week, because it totally sucked and I was about 40 seconds a mile slower.
In the next few weeks I’m going to up my treadmill runs to incline to at least 2 push and myself out of my comfort zone in the next few weeks. I’ll keep you posted on my training and progress.
I am a Sweat Pink Ambassador, I was sent this product to try and review. Opinions posted here are mine and 100% honest.
I was super excited when Sweat Pink partnered up with Vega Sport for this Fuel Your Better Campaign, and even more excited when I was picked to participate in this campaign. We were given and option of what we wanted to try they had several different types of fuel to choose from, I chose the Pre-Workout Energizer.
I received a box of Lemon-Lime flavored packets and honestly, I was a little sad about the Lemon Lime flavor, honestly I am not a big fan of lemon lime.
The Powder is completely plant based. The flavor was ok, like I said before lemon lime is not my choice of flavor. You mix it into 8 ounces of cold water and drink 20 min before your workout. See the photo below it was a little hard to mix completely.
I tried it and I LOVED the way that Vega Sport’s Pre-Energizer Workout made me feel during my run, I felt good the entire run never hit the wall; this drink gave me the perfect boost that lasted my entire run. I recommend it especially if you need a little extra boost! I do plan to purchase the Acai Berry flavor on my own.
