The running part I'm happy with...the rest? I kind of dropped the ball this week. I smacked my elbow into the handles of the treadmill on Friday and couldn't extend it all the way without pain, so I decided to skip everything involving my upper body. Apparently I can't do ab work either when my elbow hurts. Let's go with that, ok?
Goals for this week will include less mileage as I taper for my race, and at least 2 upper body sessions. I'll try for 2 this week and see if I can work back up to 3! I'm a little worried I'll lose some of the progress I made on the 100 Push-Up Challenge. Can't be having any of that!
On the food front, I'm enjoying gluten-free so far! Tried the rice bread at lunch Monday for a sandwich and it was ok--not great, it sort of crumbled in my mouth which was unusual. Dinner was brown rice with tuna and spinach. No pictures because I was absolutely starving and also...it was ugly. Snacks have been a Bumblebar-Cashew (WOW! so tasty!) brown rice crackers, and gluten-free pretzels. Carbs have been a plenty, which was my biggest fear with this program.

What is one fitness goal you have this week?
Making sure I fit in upper body work this week, and also....rocking my half, woot woot!
What carbs play the biggest part in your diet?
Normally, I would say oats and rye bread. This week, rice and corn are taking over!
