This week I get to officially start my Spring race season as a part of Team Tough Chik. My race shirt is in the mail and will be here any day. This community has been so supportive and full of great advice as I have built up my training and sports nutrition plan. Several of us are racing in the Cherry Blossom 10 miler and I can’t wait to meet up with them in real life.
Here is a picture from my run this Saturday after 6.5 miles with my Team in Training group. It was me- age 52 and 6 other young ladies ages 24- 28 in the 10 minute mile group. As my daughter and my Garmin watch keep telling me, age is just a number, because I was in there with them the whole way. Finish time 1:09.
It was another great week with the SBBC challenge. I am loving my new glutes and quads. The workouts are not getting easier but I am getting more into the routine of cross training and seeing the benefit of it in my running for sure. Drinking water and eating veges are not a challenge for me since I eat a very heavy plant based diet and all I drink is water and iced tea !
The week’s challenge is to try and eliminate one thing that is holding you back from your goal and I am going to try to eleiminate gluten. I have tried in the past and found it too challenging. I will try again this week.
