Before I introduce you to my new FAVORITE thing I want to say hello to the lil ducks. They are so cute! I’ll probably fall tomorrow looking for them instead of looking at the sidewalk in front of me, but it’s the price you pay for cuteness. The lil duck mom always tries to rush them away when I stop to look at them so I have to stop and enjoy the view super quick. I’m not even that close to them, but she doesn’t trust me. I don’t blame her.
I know you’re supposed to eat your colors but I feel like Cauliflower Rice and Chicken is not colorful yet still pretty healthy. I get tons of greens and reds and various other colors from fruits and veggies. So this bland looking meal is okay with me.
This morning I am doing a tempo run. It’s a good way to get faster without having to torture yourself on the track (at least that’s what I tell myself). Here’s an easy to follow 5 mile tempo run:
How to do it: Warm up with an easy pace mile. Run the tempo miles at half marathon pace if you’re training for a full marathon. You can also run it at a 6 to 7 effort if you don’t know what pace. Cool down with a mile at the end.
Want to know why I am so excited!?!?!?!!!
I now present my new running partner….
No, not Vegas. He is not super into running or really doing anything. I keep trying to get him to read Women’s Running but he insists he’s not a woman so it’s not applicable to him.
I got a Garmin 235 Running Watch! After a lot of peer pressure from my running friends I bought a new running gps watch because it’s just the easiest to use and I’m very set in my ways. My first running watch was a Garmin-o and I used it until it literally fell off my disgusting sweaty wrist.
Anyway I needed something that gave me a breakdown of my pace at the end of each mile which my Tom Tom Running Watch didn’t do. I’m really bad at pacing so I need that extra little info. So this watch will be my new best friend and I shall name him Garmin-o (just like the first one because I’m not original).
