Woodlands Half Marathon This Week!
|Apple Crisp Parfait|
Race day is nearly here! On March 1, I'm running in The Woodlands Half Marathon (Texas), which is about 20 minutes away from my home. I'll pick up my race packet later this week. Something I like about the Woodlands race is that they use an online race guide - a great idea!
Weekly Recap (2/16-2/23)
New Recipe I Tried this Week: Apple Crisp Parfait (Joyful Healthy Eats link) I sauteed diced apples in butter with cinnamon and layered them in a cup with yogurt and granola to make a parfait, which would be good any time of the day.
Daily Running Miles: 12, 0, 5 1/2, 6, 5, 0, 10, 0. (5 days out of 8 running.)
Total Running Miles: 38.5 miles. My pace has been on the slow side lately so I'm hoping that a restful taper week will be just what my body needs.
Cycling: On a non-running day, I rode 15 miles. After 10 miles, I stopped to get a drink at a water fountain and I noticed that my legs felt like Jello.
Strength Training: 3 times. Various exercises like push-ups, leg raises and reverse crunches.
The Audiobook I Listened to When I Ran and Rode at the Park: Contagious: Why Things Catch On by Jonah Berger. I liked learning about why some online content goes viral. Worth listening to!
