I just wanted to check in with everyone – thanks for following me this week even though I haven’t been able to post every day!
We are having an amazing time so far!
This morning I went for a 4.5 mile run with my friend Hannah who we are staying with. Here are the stats:
34 minutes – 4.5 miles – 419 cal. burned – 20% fat burned – AVG heart rate 178 – pace was 8:30 per mile
I have been pretty nervous the entire time we’ve been down here because of the hills and the climate change, but todays run definitely gave me the confidence I needed to get through Saturday! I’m pumped for the race! I found out we each get a metal for completing the race which is pretty cool.
I’ve been weighing myself every couple of days since I’ve been down here and so far so good. No weight gained. I guess it helps to be working out while on vacation. We had turkey last night for dinner with brussel sprouts. I had never tried them before, and they were really good. I don’t have any photos of the food because I’m still eating it before I remember I need a photo! Sorryyyyyy
I’ll touch back again hopefully before the race, but if not – be sure to check with me on Monday/Tuesday because I’ll have LOTS to chat about with the race!
