Today's challenge: Staying on-calorie
Actual fitness: a 3-mile lunch run
Note on no sweet-n-low and no caffeine: I ran pretty hard yesterday and my stomach held together well. Don't feel I had any major upset stomach issues. Don't really have any more headaches. I need more sleep though.
Note on picture: It's been awhile since I've felt like I've had enough calories for ice cream at night. This tasted great. After eating it, I warmed up with some hot tea. Makes sense doesn't it? First something cold and then the hot to warm back up. That's the routine I think needs to happen if you're living up north here and want ice cream in the winter. Unless of course, you take a really hot bath and need something cool to cool off. In which case, ice cream would come first. But you could still follow that up with hot tea.
Anyway, 1/2 cup of Blue Bunny premium vanilla light ice cream:100, 1 1/2 tsp of Nestle chocolate syrup:35 (estimated) for 135.
*Special Note* I'm having another truffle tonight that my friend gave me...another Ferrer Rocher...but this flavor is different. I'll be posting that photo tomorrow.
Racing On Saturday...
A Family Event
Good Day everyone!
Thought I'd let you all know that I'm running another 5K race this Saturday.
Also at this same event....
Our 14-year-old daughter will be running a 1 mile fun run.
Our 7-year old son will be running in a half mile fun run, as will his cousin be running it too.
Our five-year-old daughter will be running in a kid's dash, as will her cousin be running it too.
Finally, our 3-year-old son will also be in the dash with his older sister.
Our one-year-old son won't be in a race, and neither will my husband.
Then, to spice up things even more, my sister-in-law will also be running in the 5K race. I'm sure we'll both try to beat each other all in good fun.
Ok, so I couldn't resist a little poke at that because we are both very competitive and our latest 5K times are within 30 seconds of each other. I keep telling her she's fast and she keeps denying it. I keep telling her to sign up for races and kick some butt. Finally last weekend she runs this 5K race and gets second overall, (read medal) with a time of 23:36.
How exciting is that?
Yah, it's somewhat annoying to go through the whole "getting-up-early-for-the-race", being nervous, and getting winded in the middle, thing. But, holding a medal and being out there and a part of the race ends up being fun.
Now, the whole family gets to be involved.
My time four weeks ago was 23:13.
What's my goal?
Well, now, I already told you all in that questionnaire thing that my goal was the Olympics, so until then, I'll have to make little steps along the way and maybe go for a 22-something. Maybe a 22:30. It's be really nice to get 21-something actually...but, I know, one thing at a time.
After all the next Olympics is three years away.
What are you all doing this weekend?
