I found it really interesting last night talking to Kristen about her own experience with Team In Training. I quizzed her on the training schedule her coach kept, running partners, race experience and her approach to fund raising. I found it all fascinating.
Many of you have asked how I am enjoying Team In Training and I have to say I am a little disappointed that there is no one in my team that is around the same level as I am to run with at practice. There are those who take off at the speed of light and there are those who approach the race casually and prefer a slow job rather then a 9 minute pace run. I need to find a partner in the group who is just right.
Kristen was lucky enough to meet two others who were training at her same ability and even stuck by them during the race. I strive to find a running partner like that in my group, for now I will just have to wait and see.
Those were the thoughts that were going through my head during my run this morning. I was also trying to think of new ways to extend my daily run. Next week I am going to start to wake up another 15 minutes earlier and try to squeeze 7 miles in each morning to help build up my endurance. For now the 5.25 miles I did this morning were just find.
When I returned cereal was on my mind.
With out realizing it as I was pulling the cereal boxes off the shelf this morning, I seemed to have an unintentional cinnamon theme going on. In my bowl I had 1/2 cup Kashi Cinnamon Harvest, 1/2 cup 365 Brand Cinnasnaps, 1/3 cup CinnaCrunch Granola, Mango, Strawberries and Oikos Vanilla Greek Yogurt.
The cinnamon combination was surprisingly not too cinnamony and I really enjoyed the addition of the mango to the mix. Yum!
This morning’s Baker Spotlight will focus on one of the kindest blogger out there. Instead of the typical daily blog commenter she prefers e-mail and her wonderful soothing voice always instantly relaxes me during her 10 minute Yoga Videos.
That’s right I am talking about Ms. Polly from Yoga is Yummy. Her blog is very addicting and I am obsessed with her Yoga videos. But she is not all about the yoga, she is about the yummy too and her baked treats are just as addicting to look at. Her baked good is sure to fare well on April 6th. 🙂
