HBBC 2012 Thoughts on Week 4
- Week 4 is what I would consider amazing!
- This week I wasn’t motivated to do anything except run and stretch. I did the strength workouts but didn’t really want to. That tells me it’s time for something new. Maybe try Jillian Michaels’ new strength/cardio DVDs (I can’t remember the name at the moment). Seriously, all I wanted to do was run.
- I found new recipes to try that look amazing!
- Training for my first ultra has officially started. I actually started a few weeks ago but it’s only been this week that I’m noticing the difference in training for endurance compared to training for a faster pace. More details [and photos] coming this week.
HBBC 2012 Through the Lens
I’m loving homemade almond butter. Vanilla Almond Flax is my favorite so far.
I love track workouts because 1. it usually means speedwork which is my favorite training run, 2. the cushioned feeling of the track compared to streets and 3. a nice change of pace from street running.
Asian Broccoli Slaw. A favorite stand-by for a quick and easy meal that never disappoints. 3+ servings of veggies!
This may be my all time favorite snack. Protein Muffin Tops with PB2 and 1/2 sliced banana.
Roasted Veggie Soup. A new winter favorite.
I received an invitation to join Mizuno’s Mezamashii [Brilliant Run] Run Project and finally ordered my shoes. Can’t wait to try them!
Also during the week I ran my longest and fastest pace natural running run so far, possibly finding the perfect running bra and I’m a new Swift Wick Ambassador! Get more details and enter the Swiftwick giveaway here >> Fitness Friday!
