Spring has Sprung!

I was finally able to run outside in short sleeves this week! We have 5-6 days coming of low 70's! Whoop! Whoop!
This was a new-to-me place in Bend. The walking path is to the left, but trying to be kind to my joints by running off trail when I can.
Tomorrow is a short running day and I'm happy about that!
Have a healthy weekend.

Yoga Dog


It is best to do yoga when Porter is napping!


 I did my best when he was trying to help. I'm finding yoga is good in between runs.
 Long slow run on Saturday
 Repeats/intervals on Monday. Then I'm wiped out!

Food Comparison Tool


This week I was wondering which greens I use in my smoothie were actually better for me and I came across this great site!

You can see above I compared, chard, spinach and kale, 100grams (about 1 cup) raw.

It was very detailed and if you'd like to see the rest of these compared go HERE.

If you want to compare your own foods click HERE for the home page.

Lot of good information at our fingertips.

Continuing my Healthy Path

I'm amping up my running in preparation for a half marathon mid-June. 
I got some beautiful veggies this week including, kale, chard and broccolini.

Despite my moving more and eating right I have not dropped one pound since starting the Moving Mountains program. Very frustrating!

Keep Moving

Even when we leave town to relax we always keep moving.

 No matter where we stay there is always a good workout getting back up to our room.
 It was beautiful the afternoon we arrived. Here is the view from our balcony.
 Our dog Porter, likes to go for walks on the beach too.

I especially enjoy it when we are rewarded with a beautiful sunset.

What's in My Box?

I'm still getting produce and this is what I got this week.
Cauliflower
Leeks
Potatoes
apples
carrots
kale
I thought the other bunch of greens was arugula, but now I'm not sure. It isn't bitter but very mild.

I'm looking forward to fresh spring veggies!

Eat Your Greens


I've been getting a variety of greens in my produce box and have been eating plenty! How about you? I eat a big green salad almost every day and add about 2 cups of various greens to my afternoon smoothie.
Popeye had it right, didn't he?

Have a fabulous day!

St Pat's Dash

St Patrick's Day Races are always so festive. It is usually the first race of the year so it is a good gauge at where I'm at fitness wise.

 The two ladies I'm with trained using a couch2 5K program and this was their first race. They were happy! It is always good to set goals and reach them.

 A sea of green. It is such a fun race!
Post race party with beer, Irish stew and Irish music.

I was very happy with my time of 33:35 since I've been nursing my ankle since the January 1st when I sprained it. I sat down with a calendar and pencil and made a training plan for the 
Rock n Roll half marathon mid June. Training starts today!
