Call me crazy, but I have accepted the Gasparilla Bud Light Challenge.
I was given some early birthday money and was told to, and I quote, spend the money on something ‘fun, frivolous, and just for me.’ I know, I know there’s a ton of things that this money could go towards, but I was not going to disobey my orders and decided this is the perfect opportunity!
The Bud Light Challenge incorporates almost all of the races Gasparilla has to offer the last weekend in February. I will be running both the 5k and 15k on Saturday, then the half marathon on Sunday. Yikes! What have I gotten myself into? Atleast I will earn a nifty metal and cute t-shirt in the end. 🙂
I don’t plan to try and PR any of the races that weekend. I may be crazy, but I am not stupid. I am just going to run them for fun and not push it. I’m sure its going to be quite an adventure and something great to say that I’ve accomplished.
With those races in mind I guess that means I should pump up my morning work outs. This morning I went with an old favorite, my Tennis Camp Boot Camp. It had been far too long since I have done this heart rate pumping work out. 🙂
After my 60 minute sweat fest and a quick shower I enjoyed a great bowl of cereal.
In my bowl I enjoyed 1 cup Kashi Mighty Bites, 1/4 cup TJs Praline Pecan Granola, 1/2 small container of Chobani Peach Yogurt and some Blueberries.
You may have noticed I am trying to incorporate more yogurt and cheese into my diet lately. I have been told by my Doctor I am lacking in the calcium department, which is a vital necessity with all of the running I do. I have also switched from taking my calcium supplement from once a day to twice a day and maybe will even go to three times a day depending on how my next appointment goes.
Don’t worry I am perfectly fine, its just preventative care for the future. As is any runner’s motto it’s much easier to prevent an injury then sit out on the sidelines because of one. 🙂
How do you make sure you get enough calcium in during the day?
Two more days til Colorado!
I will be planning to blog while away, but I probably won’t be the best at responding to e-mails and comments so you will just have to bare with me for a week 🙂
