Today was been pretty ho-hum and relaxing. I’ve been doing blogging-related tasks all day and preparing for my Operation Beautiful TV appearance (which is tomorrow AM! I will try to post the clip). I’ve also sent the Husband to the grocery store with a long list of things to buy. 🙂
I had a serving of California apricots around 11:
And a wonderful lunch a little later:
I had brown rice, kidney beans, and salsa with a side of broc. I had to make the "Executive Decision" about whether the organic salsa fell into my Crap Free Day parameters (pro’s: organic, recognized all the ingredients, no added sugar; con’s: in a can, added sodium). I decided it was fine and went for it. I’m glad I did because it kicked up the dish and made it extra spicy!
I did rinse the extra sodium off the canned beans! 🙂
And I just snacked on watermelon:
Calling All Marathoners
I would like to start preparing my marathon training plan, but I want YOUR recommendation on what training plan to use. I have used Hal Hidgon’s plans for half marathons in the past and thought they were great. BUT – I’m not crazy about Hal’s plans for marathons because I really do not have time to do long runs 5 – 6 days a week. I know a marathon is a big time commitment, but I cannot do that.
I would like a plan that had me running no more than 4 days a week. Also, I cannot do a lot of speedwork because it kills my knees. Training doesn’t start until September, but I want to know in advance what level I need to get up to so I can work towards that goal.
What plans work the best? Suggestions?
