We're in the marathon crunch time. There's 5 weeks until the marathon, and I need to fit in some long runs. My longest run has been 13 miles. My goal is to be able to run with my sister for most of the miles but I need to get my a** in gear to do so. Next week I'm planning 16, then 20, then 12 and 8. I hope my hamstring cooperates.
There was one picture of me and my sister of 13.1 miles last weekend and some girl is smack in the middle. Bad job taking pictures last weekend pros!!
My sis was educating me about my running form that I'm bringing my arms across my body and shoulders are not back. Also you can see how I'm running and it doesn't look pretty. What do you think? Any tips?
I'm not an efficient runner.
The foods I am loving right now are potatoes and cream cheese. They are really good together. Add in some black beans and it's a nice protein rich meal. I had dismissed potatoes in the past but here are some of the good things about this carb rich food:
- More POTASSIUM than a banana!
- High in Vitamin C (45% of DV)
- Also contains some B vitamins, and minimal niacin and folate.
- The skin is a great source of fiber
As far as the cream cheese.... I've got nothing to say about that!
