Back home… with 1.5 miles!

Back home in NJ… Today was the first day of the Hal Higdon 5k training. I made it the 1.5 miles straight with the help of a friend who ran with me. As you can see from the selfie, I was beat afterwards!


We took it pretty easy, but we definitely slowed down going up the hills (love my Garmin vivoactive HR+ for this type of information!). I can’t wait to get to the point where hills don’t kick my tush so badly.


Also, the “good” ankle had slight pain and tightness, so I did two things:

  • Decided to buy new running shoes and get properly measured at a running store
  • Made an appointment with a podiatrist for the end of this week


As far as diet, I did pretty well today as well:

  • Breakfast: Protein shake with whey protein
  • Lunch: Half Green Goddess Cobb Salad without bacon (only 12g Carbs!) & a Superfruit smoothie from Panera
  • Dinner: Omelette with avocado, spinach, tomatoes and cheddar
  • Snack: Apple with almond butter
  • Before bed: Casein protein powder in 1/2 water, 1/2 almond milk
