1. Training and Tempo Runs - I started training for the NYC Half-Marathon this past Monday and so far so good. I'm really trying to incorporate strength and cross training into this training cycle and it's been much easier being here in Florida with nothing to do so we'll see how that goes once the semester kicks into gear again. I did a 5 mile tempo run today on the treadmill and it was awesome. I just had a great run and I'm pretty excited about it. I think The Pilot are going to go celebrate at Sonic in a bit. I saw a sign for a Red Velvet Cheesecake Blast and I think I have to have it. (Side note: I never eat fast food...unless it's Sonic...which they don't have in New York...so it's ok).
2. First Race of 2011 - I'm running my first ever 5k this weekend! Woohoo! I joined up with Lesley's Run for the Bling of It Challenge so I needed a race for the month of January and decided a local 5k here in Florida would be perfect! It may slightly defeat the purpose because I don't think many 5ks give out race bling but maybe I'll get lucky!
3. Dinner Recipes - I need everyone's help for dinner recipes! Starting in about 2 weeks my work day will end at 5 or 5:30 (depending on where I'm working that day) and class starts at 6:30 so I have an hour or an hour and a half given the day to get to class AND eat dinner. I spent a lot of money on quickie dinners which weren't exactly healthy or high in protein this past semester and I'm looking for some dinner recipes that I can carry to work with me and that either don't need to be heated up or that I can heat up before I leave work. So, share some websites, recipes, ideas, WHATEVER! It will be MUCH appreciated!
