Afternoon, everyone! I hope your day is going well. 🙂
Lunch was the usual — sammie, fruit, pickles!!! (I have a serious pickle problem).
Oh pickles…. I love you so.
The main *star* of lunch was two WW English muffin sammies with turkey, cheddar cheese, and sprouts.
Pickles and oranges go quite well together!
Gasparilla Half Marathon Update
I want to be like Frayed Laces. Seriously. Have you read her blog? She is the most hardcore runner ever, and I LOVE IT! She just ran an ultra marathon (that’s a 50K!!), and she is qualified for Boston (a-maz-ing).
Anyway, in my quest to be more hardcore and do cooler things with running, I’ve decided to sign up for the Gasparilla Bud Light Challenge!
The Gasparilla Bud Light Challenge requires that I run the 15K race at 7:30 AM and the 5K race at 9:30 AM on Saturday, February 28. The second part of the challenge is running the Half Marathon on Sunday, March 1. That’s 3 races in two days! I know I can do it, and I think it will be really fun!
The Bud Light Challenge is expensive (obviously), so I’m going to drop out of my planned races for this weekend and next weekend.
Here’s my updated training program (I’m in Week 2):
|8||5K and 10K Race!||1/2 M. Race!|
8×400 = Speedwork (8 sets of 400 meter sprints)
Cross = Elliptical, Swimming, or Bike
Wow, that is unbelievably inspirational! Good luck!!
I have a question for you, though. As a (freezing) cold weather resident, I would love to train for a half-marathon, but right now my only options are the treadmill in terms of running. It is literally torture to run for 10-12 miles on the treadmill (the most I’ve ever done on the treadmill is 7), but so much fun to run outside. Any suggestions as to how to beat boredom on the treadmill/train for a half marathon indoors without wanting to flee the gym?
