Another week, more food shopping.
I went to Trader Joes' on Thursday to pick up more essentials.
pineapple spears (they make me feel so tropical)
multigrain sandwich thins
creamy unsalted peanut butter
creamy goat cheese
bunch of asparagus
apple honey butter! (very exicted about this new product!)
2% lowfat greek yogurt
organic garbanzo beans
shredded pepperjack cheese
and a vegetarian pizza
Also, yesterday morning I baked for Relay for Life. Trader Joe's boxed cupcakes and Martha's Pumpkin Muffins.
In other news, Half Marathon training has been going well.
Yesterday was the 7-miler, which was good. I ran to the Arboretum, which was great. It was so nice to run on ground that had some give to it - instead of just hard concrete.
See that nice 22 minute break between Lap 3 and 4? That's getting to be a pretty consistent problem.
It's mostly because I forgot to turn off my garmin the other day which sucked all the battery life, but I have yet to actually run longer distances (5+) without stopping for a little bit. I haven't stopped because it was absolutely necessary, but rather that it was a nice break, so my next longer run I think I'll make sure not to stop. Although that means I need to get some sort of water holding device. Still determining which one to get -- any tips crazy long distance runners?
Camelbak? Amphipod? Nathan?
I need some advice!!
