4 Weeks 'til the Half Marathon!
After running the St. George Marathon (my race report) back in October, I'm looking forward to racing again. I'll be running my seventh half marathon, The Woodlands Half Marathon (Texas), on March 1! Here's how last week played out.
3 Fitness Goals Completed:
- Run 14 miles for my long run.
- Ride my bike 15 miles.
- Strength-train/core workout three times.
Running, Riding & Strength Training:
Monday: 14 mile run, Core H video workout
Wednesday: 7 mile run with hills, 5 mile ride, strength training
Thursday: 5 mile run with strides
Friday: 10 mile ride, strength training
Saturday: 9 mile run with 6 miles hard (hard is relative!)
Total Running Miles: 35
I practiced on the piano 5 days this week. Too bad taking a child to piano lessons for years does not make you a great pianist!
I finished listening to the audiobook Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss. I'm still eating some salt and sugar and healthy fats, too, like whole milk that only has one percent more fat than two percent milk.
I tried a new recipe (photo): Jam Crostata. This was easy: make the dough, spread jam on it and bake it. It would be fun to make this for Valentine's Day in the shape of a heart.
