Family - Found Them!Back in the Philippines I was part of a running community named, takbo.ph. Takbo means "run" in Filipino. The members here, I consider my family. They have helped me be a better runner, they inspired and motivated me, and even helped me break some PRs. I miss them so!
I decided to surf the net to find running groups here in our area (CA). After months of procrastinating, I finally joined them for a 10K run last night. They were all very friendly, accommodating, and all fast runners! Pretty bad**s for my standards! I was happy I was able to keep up with the slowest pace -- 10:04. It's a good thing I was scheduled to do a tempo run yesterday.
As I've mentioned on my Facebook Page, one member said I will learn so much from these athletes. I cannot wait! Drinks, snacks (yummy homemade cookies!) and pizza were free after the run. Nice! I finally found my new running family here. Cannot wait to run with them again.
Facebook Fun NightFriday is date night! Mike and I plan to see "The Social Network". Wasn't really planning on seeing this but everyone is saying it's an excellent movie. Now I'm so curious!
Four x WeekRan 4 days this week. I usually just do 3 days a week. Only because running 4 days a week back then left my ankles feeling sore. Surprisingly, I feel okay this morning! Hmmm...maybe I should go back to four.
Fruity FoodI lost 4 lbs. this month and I owe it all to eating healthy and exercise. During weekdays I would only eat fish and chicken. I only eat red meat on Sundays. I also gave up on junk food for my afternoon snack (what an ordeal!). I had to think of other alternatives. So, I'm sharing this recipe of an easy healthy snack which I got from Fitsugar. Only 110 Calories!
Warm Apple Toast
1 slice whole wheat bread
1 tablespoon all natural peanut or almond butter
Half a medium apple, cored and sliced
Sprinkle of cinnamon
1. Preheat toaster oven to 350° F.
2. Smear the nut butter on the bread. Top with sliced apples and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
3. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the apples are slightly soft.
