Morning! Sorry for the delay â€“ email suckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkked (imagine a vacuum sound) me in. 🙂
Today was a Double Shot Oatmeal kind of day:
My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup rice milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 sliced banana
- 1 tablespoon instant coffee
- Toppings: almonds, flax, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
I can never get over the fact that I was â€œafraidâ€ of oatmeal for the first 22 years of my life! What a waste!
Change of Plansâ€¦
I was planning to race the Gasparilla Half Marathon in 10 days, but Iâ€™ve decided to back out. Iâ€™m simply not trained properly (the longest distance Iâ€™ve done since the Disney Marathon on January 10 is 6.0 miles). Although Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™m fit enough to run/walk the 13.1 miles, I donâ€™t think it would be a very pleasant experience, the entry fee is expensive, and I donâ€™t want to leave the Husband for yet ANOTHER weekend.
That means my upcoming race schedule is now as follows:
- Olympic Triathlon in Orlando â€“ March 14
- Crooms Foolâ€™s Run 15 mile trail race in the Middle of Nowhere, Florida â€“ April 3
- IronGirl 15K in Clearwater â€“ April 10
- Century Bike Ride in Napa Valley â€“ May 23
I do need to start stepping up my mileage and plan to get in a few long trail runs ASAP.
For everyone who is running Gasparilla, GOOD LUCK! I had a lot of fun running it last year â€“ I did the epic Bud Light Challenge, which is when you run the 5K, 15K, and Half Marathon (recap: Part 1, Part 2).
Meghann (who is obviously insane!!!) is doing the full marathon challenge this year, which means sheâ€™ll run the 5K, 15K, and then the Marathon! Nuts, huh?! But in a good way. 🙂
