After signing up for the Wisconsin marathon and receiving a coupon for 20% off at RoadRunners Sports, I decided that the world was telling me I needed to have a shop. I got new shoes, new insoles, running tights, a handheld water bottle, and a hat. At the register I decided it was a Valentine's Gift from my husband that I would later tell him about. Whatever works to justify it, right?
I have every intention of eating healthy foods to fuel my increase in mileage, but today wasn't that day. This morning started off with gratitude, 8 miles in 1:15, and finally progressed to donuts.
Yep. Donuts. plural
I can't even remember the last time I had donuts, but I'm pretty sure that these were some of the best donuts I've had. Do-Rite is a boutique bakery that does fantastic donuts in interesting flavor and it is WAY TOO CLOSE to my apartment for my liking.
Cinnamon sugar old fashioned, Lemon old fashioned (my fav!), Valrhona Chocolate, and the infamous Candied Maple Bacon.
Okay, enough about the carbs. It wasn't my finest moment, but it happened and it was delicious and I wanted to share.
Tuesday: Spinning at Flywheel
Wednesday: I decided I was running a marathon, 4 miles
Thursday: 6 miles (supposed to be pace, I kept under a 9 min/miles)
Friday: 20 minutes of Turbofire (The January KLUTCHclub box had a disc of TurboFire's greatest HIITs and I'm in love)
Saturday: 3 miles
Sunday: 8 miles
I'm still finalizing my training program, but it is low-key with 4 days of running and fairly low mileage.
With regards to my nutrition, it's been extra indulgent lately, so I plan to make some changes in the upcoming weeks.
Do you have insoles in your running shoes? Custom? Yep, my feet are not my strong suit.
Favorite donut? I used to be a big fan of a glazed jelly donut, but after today's discovery, I am all about the lemon old-fashioned from Do-Rite.
