First post on WordPress! (Bama aka Matt convinced me so I’m thinking, why not! Let’s see how long this lasts…)
So a little about me in as short of a paragraph as I can make it:
My name’s Christina. I never got serious about running until last year via Cross Country and have now participated in a few road races since, have ran in the State meet, and PR’d there as well. I run on a Varsity high school team for the third fastest team in the state. My enjoyments in life mainly come from this, and good food! This being said, I have healthier tastes, but do not mind the occasional sweets; what’s life without a little bit of ice cream, right? So that’s pretty much what my blog will be about- food, and running, and a healthy balance & perspective on the two.
So for today,
RUN: Easy day today after the intervals yesterday. Legs still sore from that workout.
Distance: 7.1 Miles
Total Time: 50:49
The weather was nice but RIDICULOUSLY windy. Everything felt up-hill! And I think it’s supposed to snow storm later today. 😦
After my run I stretched out a little and had my typical Protein Shake with Frozen Fruit (today’s choice of fruit was a handful of frozen mixed berries)
Then I had some Flax toast with Smart Balance Peanut Butter and a dash of cinnamon… (Warm toast is the BEST.)
PS: I have a really bad addiction to SB Peanut Butter. I could go through a jar in a few days. Tops.
Lunch was this:
A ham and Swiss melt on 100% whole grain rye bread with caraway seeds, baby carrots, and an addition of a Red Delicious apple on the side.
And here are the rest of the goods for the week!
