Running Another 5K and My Meal Plan


So, as you all know I am still catching up on my Favorite Blogs and have so many new ones to read. Reading Haneefa's Blog Blog has got me wanting to Run, Run and Run some more. So, I went ahead and signed up for another 5K on the 4th of July.
Now, being that I hadn’t completed the C25K program I was thinking of starting on Week 6, which will give me 4 weeks to complete the program and 2 weeks to run 3mile practice runs. This past Sunday was my race, I ran yesterday and check this out…I ran 2.8 miles in 28 minutes. So, I am feeling confident that I can shave some time off of my 1st 5K race. May God spare any injuries, sickness and terrible weather!!!! I’m going to do it. I will run tomorrow and instead of walking and running the minutes given I am going to aim for the miles.

It will normally look something like this:
-Walk 5mins at a Brisk pace
-Jog a half a mile or 5mins and so on….so in reality I can jog for 5 mins but, it doesn’t mean that I jogged a half mile. Ya Got me?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So, check this out….my Hubby comes home with a crap load of SlimFast and he’s been following the plan. So, to be supportive I told him I will do it with him. The difference is he drinks only the shakes every 3hrs and nothing to eat. Phssst Not Me Boy… I drink 2 shakes, eat 3 snacks and a 500 calorie meal and I feel great doing it. I started my 4th week today!!

After reading up on Ro and watching her cooking Vlogs has me wanting to try new meals because, I am no cook. I can cook to survive and that’s it. So I was so HAPPY to find this recipe with SautĂ©ed pineapple, red and green peppers and turkey meatballs…um umm ummmmm!!! I went out to get some of the missing ingredients and will cook it this week. Thanks Ro….You Da Bomb Ma!!! Oh and I am also so proud of how well you did on your 30 Day challenge. ::High 5::

Gett’n Dirty:
-Yesterday’s workout was a 2.8 mile run and I walked some. I also did Abs & 3 sets of arm exercises with weights and 200 squats.
-Today’s workout was P90X’s Kenpo X.
-Tomorrow’s workout will be Running week 6 of the C25K and a P()X strength video, probably shoulders/chest/Triceps.

I can’t thank ya’ll Ladies enough, you have truly inspired me and keep me motivated. I thank you ALL for reading and fear not to comment, I love hearing from you guys and will be passing by your spot soon. So, bear with me!
Keep on Pushing Ya’ll!

Much Love,
~Leelee~
