Sweat Pink with Me Door Prizes Piling Up!

I have wonderful news...Kendrick Ribeiro has jumped on board and agreed to offer some of his wonderful products for me to give away as door prizes. All you need to do is enter the Sweat Pink with Me Virtual Run and enter your results by May 15 and you may be one lucky door prize winner on May 16. The virtual run takes place May 12 and 13.

Never heard of Kendrick Ribeiro? You can learn more about this awesome coach for the Diva Half Marathon series in this interview post. I can't say enough times how much I love the constant support he provides daily on his facebook page and beyond!

Here is what I get to offer....

Two copies of the e-book "Why Fat Loves Women". This is a good read and really made me re-examine how I was fueling myself daily. I tend to eat pretty good but I still found ways to fuel myself more effectively by strategically planning the timing of my meals with quality foods at certain times. In addition, I discovered that I really do function better, feel better, and maintain a better weight when I do eat five times a day. If I forgot my PM snack....I become grouchy and end up making bad choices later in the evening. I even printed out a copy of his eating guide and have it posted by my work desk!

Two copies of the e-book "Upgrade Your Running Style". Who can't benefit from tips to improve running form and the effectiveness of your training? And a great bonus to those of you building up mileage to your first half marathon, it includes a 12 Week Half Marathon Plan. How cool it that? And those exercises to help prevent injury....this is just a reminder I need to re-focus and start doing more of them! It is always better to begin this regime prior to an injury than after one!

And now on to RUNNING!

What have I been up to? Well yesterday I ended up squeezing in a mile after getting home and before having to do 10,000 things before dinner....and I only had a mere two hours! I am so glad I moved running up on my priority list and darling daughter completely understood it when I said, I just need to get my run in before doing anything else. The time I took to run 1 mile really wasn't that much and in all reality, everything else could wait until I was done....especially since darling daughter had a brand new stack of good reading from our library trip we took on the way home from school. Yes, you can give quality time to your little one and take some time for yourself later. Yesterday was her day.

But today was my day. I got a huge chunk of me time before heading to work. Not as much as I dreamed up but I'm not complaining. My goal was to run 30 minutes and I ended up going a wee-bit over 35 minutes. Hey, at 30 minutes I was too close to 4 miles to not keep running! I ended up running 4.36 miles with an average pace of 8'02". Today's run was pyramid style with the fastest running in the middle of my workout. Hey, sometimes I just need to shake it up and trick my legs by doing something different. It is good training.

Daily Gratitude: I don't say this often but "THANK GOODNESS IT'S FRIDAY"!
Daily Affirmation: I am organized and am creating the foundation for a peaceful, happy home.
