On another note, I am a lucky girl. I won 2 boxes of Mom's Best Naturals cereal in the contest hosted by The Happy Runner!!! Thank you, Felice! I entered the contest, then got so busy, I completely forgot to check back for the winners, so Felice had to remind me I had won and to email her my address, so she could send them my way.
I have been wanting to try Mom's Best, but like a lot of things, had somehow never gotten around to buying it. One of my friends, who is very particular about what she puts into her stomach has been singing the praises of Mom's Best...I believe her entire cereal consumption consists of Mom's Best selections. The website says "There's nothing artificial, no saturated fat or hydrogenated oils, no high fructose corn syrup". The company also plays it's part in saving the planet in a number of thoughtful ways, so they definitely have my vote.
The boxes arrived on Friday. Of course, I had to open the box of sweetened wheatfuls rightaway and dig into the little squares of sugary goodness. Mmm...
DH is not the biggest fan of whole wheat products, so I may have to polish them off myself...and I am looking forward to it!
Last week's total mileage: 38 miles
Monday: Easy 4 miles (38:23), spinning (1 hour), swimming (500 yards)
Tuesday: 6 mile tempo (1 mile warm up, 4 miles tempo - 7:59, 8:01, 7:58, 7:47, 1 mile cooldown)
Wednesday: rest (snow day)
Thursday: 16 mile long run (2:30:24) in the snow!
Friday: strength training (ab crunches, lunges, weights)
Saturday: Easy 9 miles (1:26:44)
Sunday: 3 miles on hills (26:26)
I am focusing more on quality runs than on ramping up the mileage every week. I've discovered the hard way that the 10% rule DOES NOT work for me!
