Mile repeats and back to eating veggies.

I try to eat pretty healthy and workout while on vacation, but I def eat differently than when I’m doing my normal routine. Since we were away this weekend and I ate lots of good food (and not so many veggies), I tried to get back on track yesterday.

Breakfast

Fruit and a soft Belvita Bar

Don’t be fooled…I still ate ice cream for dessert. πŸ™‚

Yesterday was track day and I’ve learned to love and hate it at the same time. The workout was:

3 x 1600m in 6:51 with 400m rest interval

We did:

1600m in 6:47
1600m in 6:47
1600m in 6:39

I really love the feeling of being so tired at the end of each set but feeling recovered and refreshed at the beginning of the next set. πŸ™‚

My friend Jeanette shared a great quote with me during our workout and I repeated it a few times during our last mile: “Comfort is a great place to be, but nothing grows there.” πŸ™‚

I hope you are having a great Thursday!

What’s your favorite quote? When do you need it most?

  1. I agree what a difference a few minutes of rest can do, you forget how uncomfortable you just were and you have the strength to do it all over again.
    I always need a good quote to get me through the end of a race, actually I don’t really have one though.. many times something I recently read will just pop in my mind, but I think I have to go find myself a good one of my own. πŸ™‚
