First Training Run Complete & Healthy Cereal Options

First summer half marathon training run complete! It was only 3 miles, but every workout I can put a checkmark next to is a step (get it, step) in the right direction.

I refused to stop the treadmill at 2.94 miles, so I was a minute or two late to personal training. Once I got there, we did assisted pull-ups - I'm so close to fully body - and I squatted and threw a 20 pound ball for way too many minutes. We then did rounds of deadlifts with 10 pounders on the 45 pound bar, box dips and ab work - as many rounds as I could do in 5 minutes. There were diamond pushups thrown in there as well. I was drenched by the time the workout was over. 12 minutes on the Elliptical as a cool down...


Breakfast was one cup of Kashi crunch cereal, 1/2 cup Almond milk, blueberries and 1/4 a banana. Back in my "eat all the food in the pantry" days I could easily polish off a few bowls of cinnamon toast crunch with 2% cow's milk as an after school snack. Once I changed my habits and learned the beauty of portion control, I found that cereals packed with protein and fiber keep me fuller longer (and they are just a wee bit healthier than sugar for breakfast)...

I went for a walk at lunch to make sure I keep my legs moving throughout the day. It was sprinkling outside, but a little water never hurt anyone…


Speaking of walking, my fitbit sent me this nifty notification yesterday. I proceeded to sing, "and I will walk 500 more."


I'm back on my beets kick. I keep reading that beets are great for runners. I'll be upping my milage in the next few weeks and can use all the help I can get…


Last night I was flipping through channels and saw Track and Field was on the Universal Sports Network. This channel is great for airing all athletic events. Watching running events definitely motivate me to get my workouts done…


How did you workout on Tuesday?

What's your favorite cereal?
