Have you tried my favorite want to eat popcorn? It’s addicting! But guess what….this is even better! Do you love cauliflower?? You should since it’s loaded with fantastic health benefits! It’s so amazing I think you should include it in your diet several times a week!
Heart Rate Based Training is definitely all about patience! Talk about a roller coaster of different emotions (and speed) these past 12 weeks! Often times I found myself wondering if all the slow runs were really going to pay off. I have been loving the speed workouts that have been thrown in each week but I have to admit, when I first started this training program, I had my doubts!
Let’s take a mental vacation and have a tropical smoothie! Yes please. I don’t know if it’s as HOT where you are at right now, but let me tell you, this intense sun and humidity is really affecting my running. According to the meteorologists, we’re hitting some record heat index temps all over the US.
I have really been enjoying salads for dinner lately! You? Summer is a perfect time for #summersalads especially since I hear half the United States has been under a severe Heat Wave! And that’s no joke!
By now you have probably noticed noticed I have been experimenting with Heart Rate Based Training if you’ve been following my blog. I highly recommend giving it a shot if you’re up for switching up your training for your next half or full marathon.
Do you ever sit and dream about ways you can jazz up your food? How about clever toppings for your fish or crusty bread? This may not surprise you, but I literally have dreams at night for recipes to try…I know, my brain doesn’t stop cooking even when I’m asleep, especially when I have a long run coming up! I do my best to make sure I am getting a fair amount of carbs the night before a long run! The right amount of protein. Not too much fiber. Ha…I guess this is a good sign I’m doing what I love, cooking, running, and blogging about it. THANKS for reading!
Do you remember how much fun I had on this Easy Effort run with 20 second Pick-Ups? Today was even more fun! My training program called for Pick-Ups on Steroids. They even sound cool don’t you think? The pick-ups on steroids are very similar, but in my opinion, much more fun with more speed thrown in!
