Week #4 of my training for the Nike Woman’s Marathon Half in DC is now complete. Overall, I had a very successful week. I was able to get in three sessions of strength training and all four of my training runs. Two of the runs were on the treadmill, but the other two were outside. Here are the stats for my outside runs:
The cold temperatures for my seven miler were killing me, but I knew I couldn’t complete seven miles on the
dreadmill treadmill…so outside I went. By the completion of mile #1, believe it or not, I was completely warmed up! Needless to say, I was quite pleased with both of my outside runs this weekend. 🙂
While I am running I am always thinking about how I am going to reward myself for my efforts, and today I decided my reward would be a smoothie made in the Vitamix.
I never measure any of the ingredients when I make a smoothie, but I can share the ingredients:
Wyman’s frozen blueberries
a whole cored pear with skin
Bob’s Red Mill flaxseed meal
Chobani vanilla yogurt
It was the perfect treat after an intense week of working out!
I hope you had a awesome weekend!
Thanks for visiting my blog! 🙂

Oooh! How was the pear in the vitamix?? I need to get my butt out there and run my 7 but it looks so nasty outside!!! Ok… here I go…
I couldn’t even taste it! I guess it just added texture and made it a little more healthy. I wanted to put in some kale, but I forgot! 🙂
I’m off to read your post now!
Looks like you really had some great runs. Nice work! Sounds like your training is going well! You definitely deserved a nice treat.
