After a long week of emotional ups and downs as well as finals, I hit the gym this morning. My half-marathon training called for 3 miles today, so I did a 10 min. warm-up, hit the weight room for some chest exercises and then did 3 miles on the treadmill in 32:48, which was a 10:56 pace. Today was supposed to be an easy run, so I kept it that way. We have a 6 miler tomorrow morning, so I wanted to “save myself” for that. I’m getting in the midst of half-marathon training and the long runs only get longer from here, hehe.
I ate pretty well today (no pictures though):
Breakfast: 1 egg, 4 egg whites; 1/2 c. oatmeal
Snack: protein bar
Lunch: 4 oz. of fish, 1/2 c. brown rice, 1 green bell pepper
Snack: multigrain ciabatta roll with butter spray with a chopped veggie salad(cucumbers, y& o bell pepper, red onion, avocado, iceberg lettuce)
Dinner: 4 oz. steak
I have plans tonight, so I may have something else a little later, but wanted to make sure I got some protein in.
I’m a bit nervous about my “long” run tomorrow, though I have done it before.
Does anyone else get nervous before their long runs?
After my light dinner, I was starving by the time I got home around 10:30, so I had a veggie chicken patty and a Fiberplus bar.
