So, total mileage for the week - 43 miles. Total strength, core, yoga:...um, just that one yoga video. Whoops.
My head is saying things like Um, remember that little marathon thing you signed up for? Maybe you should run a little. Which means less cross training because I'm lazy and can only handle one thing a day, fitness-wise.
Remember when I drank like 1/2 ounce of beer yesterday and got smashed? Me either. Luckily I had some photographic evidence to jog my memory courtesy of photo booth.
I'm sorry. You can't ever un-see that stuff.
Luckily a couple of beers gives me an excuse to finish off the last of my Ting-a-Lings, which might sound just a little bit dirty but is actually an amazing chocolate candy. They come in 4 flavors: milk, dark, super dark and peanut butter.
I have to say they were all pretty tasty, but PB comes in top, of course. Also, the Super Dark were nice but definitely not very sweet, in my opinion. I love that they're a small company (Sp Candies) who make everything "just like Grandma Elsie." I'm totally imagining a cute old lady in a rocker whipping me up some homemade candy. They're gluten-free, organic and made with high quality ingredients. Which makes me feel pretty awesome about myself when I sit next to hubs as he munches his Hershey's. I'm classy and I know it.
What are your fitness goals for the week?
I think this is the last week to REALLY bust my tush with running before sliding into a calmer two weeks with taper. So my goal is to really give it my all, pushing the pace with speed training and tempo runs.
Do you buy "junk food" with healthy ingredients, or just call it a splurge and move on?
85% of what I eat I try to make healthy meals, with veggies, fruits, protein, etc. So when I eat my "junk" each day, I am fine with it being unhealthy. But I love when a product tastes like a treat but is full of great ingredients--like these candies, Larabars, or Greek yogurts.
Also: Has everyone entered my giveaway for TWO SIGNED COPIES of Rocco Dispirito's latest book? Please don't make this pretty man sad.
I received the Sp Candies free but the review is entirely my own.
