5k race, training and a new recipe!

Today’s 5k race was Ally’s one year running anniversary! She ran her heart out this morning, I’m so proud of her! Packet pick up was a breeze, they were extremely organized!

She came in 2nd place in her age group. Still waiting on results, but her unofficial time was 27:53.

 My training and 5k results

I’m getting ready for another half at the end of this month, the Rock N’ Roll Dallas on March 24. I’ve never run 2 halfs this close together so I don’t really have a plan for miles this month. Today I ended up with 9 miles (6 plus a 5k). Next week I think maybe 10 and then 8 miles, then the next weekend is the race.

I ran a really good pace for the 5k today, but I didn’t place. Let me just say the age group spanned 10 years and I was up against the guys! However it was a really good time for me, I’m happy with it!

Check out my average heart rate for the 3.1 miles!

 Trying new foods ~ Spaghetti Squash Casserole

Last night’s dinner was a new recipe and it was a major hit! I found the original recipe from Peas and Thank You, and I made a few changes.

  • I added 99% fat free ground turkey
  • Used spinach instead of broccoli
  • I used low fat cream cheese, I’m sure it would have worked with fat free

Anyone tried the lateral jumps from Friday’s kick-off to March Madness? Any awesome Spaghetti Squash recipes I should try?

  1. AM I seeing things or did you change your blog? I must be behind on this, but I love the new look :)

      Thanks Lynda! I did change it, I went self hosted so I have more freedom with the design and what I can do.

Tell me what you think!
