Training days

trainingHalf-marathon training is underway! I’ve got about a month under my belt so far. Because I have workout ADD and also do Crossfit, yoga, and occasionally Pilates and/or boxing on a weekly basis, I’ve limited my running to twice a week right now. I’ll start increasing to three times a week incorporating the longer weekend runs in the next few weeks.

I have to say, I feel so blessed to live near enough to the beach that I can run and watch the sun rise along the horizon in the morning. It’s spectacular. And starting my day at the beach automatically puts me in a better mood. If you live near a beach, go run!

I also stumbled upon a new song to add to my running playlist (thanks Spotify). This one will get ya goin…

Happy running, lovelies!

Juicing again, and it feels so good…

juice_before
I have an on-again, off-again relationship with juicing. don’t get me wrong, I love it. However, once I go through all my veggies, I forget to buy more, and juicing slips away again for a few months…only to be re-discovered time and time again!
juicer_ready
Lately, in the spirit of becoming more healthy and getting in shape for my upcoming half, I decided to start juicing again for breakfast. You’d think a glass of veggie/fruit juice would leave you hungry for more, but it’s surprisingly filling! All those nutrients I guess.
juice_done
When I can, I always try to get organic produce, but at the end of the day, juice is alwys better than no juice. So do what you can, but don’t stress out over only juicing organic. It’s all good man…enjoy that juice!
