It’s Mighty Mommy Monday! Abbie of Farmer’s Daughter and I have decided to challenge you on a weekly basis. Claim the Mighty Mommy title for yourself — every day, not just Mondays. Every week, we’ll host a link up for you to tell us what you’re doing to take care of your health: workouts, menu plans, how to keep your family active, etc. I’ve set a few goals for 2014, but my biggest is to swim a total of 30 freestyle miles this year AND run a half marathon in October! Join us!
I’ve been really disciplined about getting to bed at 1030 every night. I read for half an hour and then, I’m off to sleep. I haven’t been sleeping well at night, but the consistency is paying off because I’ve been able to get up early almost every morning and exercise. I clocked in over 6 miles of running (whoo!), checked cross training off my list and finally got myself back in the pool!
For some reason, I’m getting Runner’s World every month (must have gotten it with a race registration?) and I’ve gotten some good tips about running in the summer… I think I’m doing alright with the hydration, I certainly sweat enough! I could really use some work on my stretching and recovery, but at least I’m thinking about it, right?
Now. Does anyone have any tips for post-run snacks? I bought a protein powder sample to try, but I need to come up with something filling soon. One can only eat so many apples with almond butter, you know? So any ideas to fill my belly?
