Yesterday’s 3 mile run was much better than Monday’s. My hubby was home so he came along and that helped pass the time too. Family runs are my favorite . I love when my husband crosses in front of the jogging stroller and Z yells out “Daddyyyyy!” My husband says “yes, sir?” and Z giggles. It’s too cute.
I tried a new health food shake this morning. My friend sells Beachbody stuff and is always talking about how great Shakeology is. My curiosity got the best of me and I ordered the chocolate version. Wow, it’s good! It tastes like a chocolate milkshake, except it’s actually good for you! I had it for breakfast at around 8:30am and I’m still not hungry at 11:15am. That’s good for me. I am usually looking for a snack by now . It is pricey so I’ll have to see how much I like it and if it does help me on my quest to lose these last few pounds before I decide to stick with it.
I’m thinking of trying to add in more runs during the week. Right now, I run Monday, either Tuesday or Wednesday, run Thursday, rest Friday, long run on Saturday, rest on Sunday. I’m probably going to stick with resting on Friday and Sunday because I like rest days surrounding my long run day. During the week though, I find that I just don’t feel as good on the days I don’t run. It’s hard to always fit in my runs with a busy 1 year old, but I’m going to try to run Monday through Thursday and if I don’t run, I’ll try to cross-train.
We’re having another beautiful day here so once Z wakes up from his nap, we’ll be heading out for another 3 miles.
P.S. Last night I signed up for the Joggermom virtual marathon. It’s such an awesome idea and I’m looking forward to tracking my mileage in May. With my half marathon being in May, I think I should be able to cover the 26.2 miles pretty easily (easy to rack up the miles, not easy to actually do all that running!). I think this is the perfect challenge for us running moms. Most races aren’t stroller friendly so this is an awesome way to “race” and bring our babies along!
