Yesterday went rather well. I made much better choices food-wise, and the last of that Bailey’s creamer is finally gone. I went grocery shopping shopping last night and scoured labels on the creamers to find one (that I like) that has no dairy. Seriously, this has been my one major obstacle to being vegan. I wish I could drink my coffee black. Ugh. But, surprise! The International Delight Hershey’s Chocolate Caramel is non-dairy! Woohoo! And whereas my beloved Cafe Mocha is non-dairy, it does contain casein. This one doesn’t! Yippee!
My C25k run went well also. I’m currently on Week 3, which is a 5 minute warm-up, followed by 90 seconds running, 90 seconds walking, 3 minutes running, 3 minutes walking, then repeat. Followed up with a 5 minute cool-down. I only do a 3-minute warm up, and maybe a 1-minute cool-down. And during the 3 minute walks I run the middle minute :) Oh, and I also have been adding another repeat of both the 90:90, 3:3 at the end.
W3D1 was Tuesday and I did 3.26 miles in 32:36. Yesterday was W3D2 and I did 3.35 in 33:01. So both days I’ve averaged 10-minute miles. That’s pretty good considering all the walking! I’ll do day 3 this afternoon, and a longer run on Sunday. The last 2 Sundays I’ve done 6.2 (10k) just by doubling the week’s daily workout.
I have 2 “virtual” races this weekend for Halloween. A 5k and a 10k. So I’ll use today’s run for the 5k, and do the 10k either tomorrow or Sunday. Instead of posting repeat pictures you can always look at my instagram feed (over there –>) for running pics :)
And speaking of Halloween (which is also my anniversary- 5 years today!), this is the first year I’m not in costume :( I spent so much time dressing up Lucy and (trying to dress up) Bogey that I completely forgot about me. And the costumes I do have are not really appropriate for work (too scary or too short). Oh well, at least Lucy will be dressed up for our walk tonight, though I’m not sure yet which costume she’ll be in ;)
