Track Workout was OUTSIDE, thanks to the time change. I did 6 miles, some warm up, then 2X200’s, 2X400’s, and 2X800’s at 6:30pace. Also a long nice cool down:)

7:30 pm Dinner: Taco Tuesday! I finally found the La Tortilla’s at TJ’s this weekend, boy have I been missing out. I made two turkey tacos with cilantro, red peppers,light cheese blend,diced tomatoes, and a dollop of Greek yogurt.

WEDNESDAY WORKOUT

I woke up at 5am this morning to run with some friends. It was so dark out and SO cold! I bundled up and made it out for a good 5 miles, my body was very tired from working out 5 straight days in a row, I will definitely be taking off from running tomorrow.

I made some Nature’s Path Flax Plus waffles, topped with Naturally Nutty Flax and Hemp Seed PB, 1/2 Banana, and some agave nectar. I also had a juicy and fresh picked orange. For some extra protein I had a little bit of my Odwalla Vanilla Al’Mondo.

Hiya! So check out my latest post for info about the Bourbon Chase. I have a few friends though who were worried about it being the Inaugural race and not too organized.

So, I did find two more similar races that have been going for a while. Will email you more deets and you can let me know what you think about them! Excited!
