Freaking out a little big guys!
Yesterday after realizing it was my sorta running anniversary, I decided to check out if there were any Turkey Trots in my area on Thanksgiving…
WELLL… GUESS WHAT?!
So I texted my friend (the one joining the army) and asked if she would be up to waking up at the crack of dawn—which she was! And we are both going to run. WOOHOO!
I’m so excited, you have no idea
Well, actually I’m sure all you runners out there who have experienced a first race can totally relate
Like I’m going all out guys.. I’m thinking turkey knee high socks, turkey ear warmers, turkey gloves… the WORKS!
I’ll be sure to get my fan club to take some pictures because you better believe my family is coming to cheer me on.
It’s a 5 mile run, and I actually thought it was a 5K when I first read the description, but I figured I haven’t ran 5 miles in a while, so I should be good.
Guess I’ll have something to talk about on my date
Although this running talk got me in the mood to run, I stuck with my plan to walk instead. I ended up walking for 30 minutes on an incline. I sometimes find that I get sweatier when walking on a treadmill than running outside—probably because it’s like 30 degrees in the morning lol
I’ve been following Tone It Up this week so I’ve been doing 2 strength workouts a day.. but it’s really not that intense at all which is perfect. The afternoon ones seem to be more like Pilates for only 10 minutes
I picked up some Cinnamon Raisin Toast yesterday at the store, so I knew I wanted to have some for breakfast
Cinnamon toast, protein frosting, blueberries, and hemp hearts
I never tried protein frosting before, it was pretty good! I mixed 1 scoop protein, 1 tbsp powdered peanut butter, and 2 tbsp almond milk + water until it got to a good consistency.
Any tips for a first racer??
What was your first race like?
Know where I can get turkey knee socks?
