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?
