4 miles slow, 2 miles fast (kinda)

My training plan called for 2 miles easy, 2 miles at short tempo pace and 2 miles easy. My short tempo pace should probably be around 7:50 miles? based on my half marathon time, but I have not been able to get even 1 mile that fast yet! I did the tempos at 8:34 and 8:15 — I’ll be faster next time!

Once again we were running late so I had to throw together a quick lunch and eat breakfast in the car. I really should have asked Ben to make my lunch, but he says he doesn’t know what I like – which is kinda true. So, someone will soon be getting a lesson in How to Pack My Lunch!

Lesson #1: I bring a lot of food = a lot of tupperware!DSCN1913

Breakfast was oatmeal – 1/2c oats, soymilk, cinnamon, naner, PB DSCN1911Happy Humpday πŸ™‚ I’m currently drinking a new tea from TJ’s. I think it’s a Mango flavor!

  1. I love your lesson #1 about lunch packing. Right now in my lunch bag I have three containers plus two packaged snacks! I try to pack as much or more than I need for the day in my bag so that I won’t get hungry πŸ™‚

  2. I have the same tupperware-it rocks!!

  3. blerg, i am not a fan of bfast in the car
    i had to pull one of those today too
    sure does take some of the pleasure out of eating, not to mention i am always hungrier afterwards haha

    kudos to you for using reusable containers πŸ™‚

  4. I also take a ton of food to work, which means tons of dirty tupperware!!! Drives me nuts, but keeps everything intact! I always try to pack my lunch the night before. I hate feeling rushed in the morning.

  5. Love all the tupperware, but hate all of the dish washing after! But totally worth it to keep hunger at bay all day long

  6. Mango Black Tea from TJ’s is my all time favorite πŸ™‚ Glad I bought two boxes when I went to TJ’s in AZ. We don’t ahve them in Texas 😦

  7. whatever is “hard” is definitely a tempo!!!! keep tempo-ing and you’ll see your pace go down πŸ™‚ woo woo!

  8. That is totally how much tupperware is in my lunch bag. I pack a lot of food, and try my very hardest not to use baggies or saran wrap.

  9. That’s funny about the tupperware. I always bring a lot too. I just tried the mango tea from TJ’s last week and it was really good. I like mixing it with some sparkling water too.

  10. I am still working on finding my tempo pace too, and you are much faster then me!

  11. I love trying new teas. I’m kind of a tea snob but I LOVE Trader Joe’s teas – they have some great flavors.

  12. Hey! I came across your blog and I really like it! I just started a blog and would love for you to check it out sometime! Thanks!
