It’s a Wrap!
Yesterday’s noontime nosh was delish!
For lunch I made myself a wrap. It started with a Flat Out Light Italian wrap and roasted red pepper hummus. I then added a leaf of romaine lettuce, slices of green pepper and carrot, a local sharp cheddar cheese and a handful of spinach. Topped it off with some salt and pepper and then wrapped it up. Yum!
I enjoyed it with joni gold apple slices sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon and sugar. 🙂
Yesterday evening was also running group night. I love running group night. 🙂 We did 3.2 miles. I was not happy with my time but I was glad that I was able to run the entire distance without walking, to be honest. Lately I have been feeling very heavy and slow in my running. I feel like I am just plodding along. I’m not really sure why. It may be because I haven’t been running as much lately but I have still been working out, so I wouldn’t think I would have lost that much stamina. The air is also much cooler now and I think that might affect my breathing.
My goal for the Turkey Trot was to finish in under 30 minutes and I’m truthfully not sure how achievable that is right now when I feel like I am struggling with my running. I’m worried about even being able to set a PR. I’ve adjusted my workout schedule to fit in more running days but it might be too little too late. I didn’t realize I was going to hit this wall and probably should have upped my running days a long time ago but I was really enjoying my HIIT workouts and also the yoga.
I know there will always be other races but I am a little bummed that I may have to adjust my goals for the Turkey Trot.
What do you wear to run in cooler weather? Any gear recommendations? I think I need to get some sweat wicking pants and shirts.
