Happy St. Patrick's Day! Everything is gonna be in green today so no one gets pinched ^_~. I do hope you are all going to have an amazing one today. It will be a while until St. Patrick's day is back on a weekend so make sure you go out an have fun!!!!
Since, that is exactly what I am planning on doing, I made sure to get my Virtual 5K in this morning so I can work off a few of those 'Green Beers'. What? I always wanted to try them...yet can never seem to be able to get one -_-.
However, before I went to the gym for the race I tried one of the 'goodies' that I got from the LA Marathon Convention. The company Mamma Chia has these squeeze's (seen above) and the drinks. Well I got some of the squeezes and it is DELICIOUS! It has 1200Mg Omega-3, Fiber, no added sugar, 70 calories & Gluten Free + Vegan!
It replaced my pre-breakfast run, cause I was running late and didn't want to get up this morning. And it gave me that full stomach feeling so I could run my 5K without getting dizzy or hungry! Then it was time to get my run on!
Unlike with my First Virtual 5K I now knew I could run 3.1 miles on the treadmill and whats more I have been training on jogging a mile after classes so I felt ready! Which is more then I can say for almost any of my other races ^_^.
So it started and I decided that I wanted to actually jog the first mile without stopping. Something that I have never been able to do before. Even while just running a mile I always slowed down to a walk. This time I pushed myself through and did the whole mile WITHOUT STOPPING! Then I took a 1/2 a song break while doing a fast walk then it was back to jogging and I did the whole thing again!
I beat my first Virtual Race time of 52:08 and that was amazing in itself. But knowing that I can actually jog a WHOLE mile without stopping...well that is something extra!
I cannot wait to see what I can do next weekend for the #Anywhere5K 2nd Annual Race. My goal is to shave off 2 minutes on my time. It seems like a reasonable goal and I will be putting it into action.
Okay NeverEver's, it is time for me to get ready for tonights party and help out a friend move somethings into storage. So i will be seeing you all tomorrow!
Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
