Much better

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.

Happy running!

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!

    ooo, I may sign up too! I should be running 5K 3 times a week by May so I could do that no problem. Plus it will keep me motivated to keep running after my 5K on May 7th.
