Hills Training Week 2

Today the day started early at 4:50am, with my dog Huggie Bear waking my husband and I up. Huggie is very demanding in the mornings, he wants to go out so he can get a treat. Thats a Pug for you!

I quickly changed and got my typical running breakfast going, 1/2 of an Ezekiel english muffin toasted with 1T of almond butter. I also had a large glass of water to re-hydrate myself from my Zzzz's.

The running group meets at 6am and starts with a 10-15 minute warm up. I am usually already warmed up since I run to "base camp" from my house, about 1 mile.

The group warm up consists of some sort of a warm-up excersie for 200 feet then we run another 200 feet to an orange cone. We then walk back around and start over again. Today our group leader broke us up into groups according to our 5K times. I went with my friend into the 28 minute group. We than ran hills for 20 mins then back to base for stretching, abs and some fluids. The Gatoraide has been upsetting my stomache so I am trying to minimize it and just do water for now. Then it was time to run the 1 mile back home and get ready for work.

Today breakfast was 1 banana and an egg sunny side up (hard) + water. My snack at 10:30am today will be Fage 2% yogurt with cherry. My favorite flavor!

Have a great day........
