Well folks, marathon training starts tomorrow! I’ve got my training schedule and I’m ready to rock and roll. Tim and I got started this morning with a small 2-mile run on the trails near downtown. In case you’re gearing up for a half marathon this summer and would like to join me, here’s my workout for the week. (I’ll post every Monday and give a quick update on how I’m doing) Feel free to join along!
Half Marathon Training: Week 1
Monday: stretch and strengthen
Tuesday: 3 mile run
Wednesday: 2 mile run or cross train
Thursday: 3 mile run + strength
Friday: Rest (YAY!)
Saturday: 30 minute cross train
Sunday: 4 mile run
Tomorrow is Monday and it’s always good to start the week off prepared. I like to make a smoothie for breakfast in the morning and some most mornings I’m running a little behind. To help with that, I decided to make my own smoothie bags ahead of time. I found the idea on Pinterest and now I’m hooked.
Now when I’m running out the door, all I have to do is grab my ninja (the best invention ever!), some ice, juice, the bag of already mixed fruit and push blend. I’m out the door with a great breakfast!
Liz’s Morning Smoothie
Ninja Blender (or regular blender)
1 – 1 1/2C. orange juice
Couple ice cubes
Splash of diet 7-up
Pre-made fruit smoothie bag
Fill blender with ice cubes, orange juice, 7-up and fruit. Blend until fruit and ice are nice and smooth. Pour into glass or ready-to-go cup and enjoy!
