So guys, I totally thought yesterday was Wednesday when I woke up. I jumped out of bed in a panic because I did not have a blog post done. Then it hit me..it was Tuesday.
Not only is today Wednesday, but there are exactly two more sleeps until this semester is over 🙂 I am in the HOMESTRETCH!! Last week I was a complete mess with my head underwater in a pool full of work. This is exam week and things are spread out much better.
So happy WIAW everyone, I am glad I did not miss the party. Today I am sharing with you Monday’s eats and a little update about my half marathon training. The race is coming up next month!
Thank you Jenn for hosting the paarrttaayyy!
What I Ate
[Peanut butter and banana flatbread with walnuts, cranberries, and granola]
[Homemade goulash with rice]
[Fruit, fruit, and more fruit!!]
[Leftover cinnamon and Caribbean chicken with steamed veggies over rice]
As for the update with the half marathon training, all is going well. I had a bit of a downfall when I was on vacation at pushing myself too hard. I had the extra time to train so I pushed myself and I ended up having to take a week off and pull back. Now, I am a full week back in it and I have never felt better. It is SO IMPORTANT to listen to your body!! I ran 9 miles on Sunday, did some Pilates yesterday (PowerYoga was canceled and I was slightly devastated because I was home for the night), and ran another five miles yesterday. Thanks to Vega Sport, I keep my body fueled through it all 🙂 I will be doing a blog post soon on the products I am reviewing. Thank you again to Vega Sport and Fit Approach for this wonderful opportunity!
I have so many questions for you race runners out there-
-Is there any food or vitamin you make sure your body is getting an extra dose of when you are training for a half marathon?
-What is the best recovery food after a long run?
-How much do you hydrate?

I thought this quote was perfect for this week because as the semester is winding down, it is important to remember that you have done your best. You are awesome for being YOU.
