I have always been impressed by those of you that plan meals for the week. Packing meals-to-go in portable containers so you are never caught without healthy options.
It takes time on the front end, but always pays dividends throughout a busy week. Coach and I want to get better at food prep, so we started with the first meal of the day.
I know this is so simple, but that’s exactly why we have been able to make it a weekly habit (kind of like having my protein bars in the fridge at all times).
I even take the eggs with me in between classes/clients to heat up.
I’m still working on packing healthy snacks & meals so I don’t get caught spending more money or defaulting to less than ideal options.
Race envy. Do you experience it?
Omaha Half Marathon
Do you get this? There were so many races this weekend! Seeing others set new PRs or complete a distance for the first time inspires me and makes me want to run all these cool races like Chicago, Twin Cities, St George. But, then I think about how hard running 26.2 miles is…
Regardless, I’m VERY excited about the upcoming Runner’s World Half Marathon in Bethlehem, PA.
Truthfully, I’m pretty nervous too.
It’s a hilly course, and I know there will be lots of talented runners there since Runner’s World is hosting. I hope I can perform well (read: not embarrass myself).
Last weekend, I ran 12.5 hilly, miles on tired legs after this CrossFit WOD the previous day. I felt like that was solid work, but I failed to get a long run in this past weekend, so I NEED to do one today.
I don’t want to wing this half like I did the Omaha Half Marathon.
And, I get a little anxious traveling and meeting new people. I’m naturally an introvert, but once I’m comfortable with you, you wouldn’t guess that. With bloggers its different though. You kind of “know” the person beforehand, but always wonder:
Is he/she like her online personality?
Will they like me?
Will I make friends?
There are many bloggers I’m amped to meet, not to mention the Runner’s World staff! BLOGGER38 still saves you 10% on registration if you haven’t pulled the trigger yet.
1. Do you prepare meals for the week? If so, please share!
