I did it! I beat my goal of 45 minutes, actually I finished 5 miles in 44 minutes 45 seconds!!! It felt great to beat my goal – between miles 3 & 4 I didn’t think I was going to because it was cold, windy, sunny – but I did it, and it was an amazing feeling! Here’s a group photo post race!
My watch stated that my heart rate was at 99% max at one point, and the average was at 94% max. I definitely didn’t feel like I was at my “max” but with the cold wind and pushing myself for this race I assume it was a combination of getting the juices flowin…
Update from my long run last week: 9 Miles – 1hr 40 minutes – 1087 calories burned – 25% fat burned. It was definitely a tough run, and I hope to do 9.5 or 10 miles this week in 1 hour 40 minutes. We’ll see, stay tuned for the Half Marathon Training weekly updates….
Saturday night I decided to try a couple new recipes. They were very delicious and ones I will definitely make again soon! Jillian Michael’s Makin the Cut, Caesar Chicken Salad Sandwiches. As always, I adjusted the recipe for my liking & to try and make less calories, more food.
8 oz. skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 TBS fresh lemon juice, divided into thirds
1 tsp reduced sodium soy sauce
3 TBS fat free mayo
2 TBS reduced fat Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp honey mustard (recipe calls for Dijon mustard)
½ tsp minced garlic
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
2 Lavash wraps
2-4 Romaine Lettuce Leaves
1 Plum Tomato
- Combine Chicken, 2 tsp lemon juice & soy sauce in a large zip lock bag, seal and marinate in fridge for 10 minutes. Remove chicken from bag and grill 🙂 once cooked, shred chicken.
- Combine 1 tsp lemon juice, mayo, parmesan cheese, honey mustard, minced garlic, & black pepper. Spread onto Lavash wraps. Place Lettuce leaves, plum tomatoes, and shredded chicken on wraps. Roll up and enjoy 🙂
As an appetizer we had Kale Crisps – recipe provided by Dr. Franson!
As a side dish with the wraps we had sweet potato fries.
That was a delicious Saturday night dinner…Now for Sunday nights prerace breakfast and post race lunch/dinner…
And that was dinner…of course we had our usual Sunday once my race was over…We went for a hike in Manchester. It was amazing to see the damage from the recent rain storm.
