“…and now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible for them.”(Genesis 11:6, AMP)
Such a lovely verse. Isn’t it wonderful to think that God gave us the ability to materialize our thoughts through simply calling on him? This incredible power working in all of us is our life source in achieving our dreams. It’s really amazing if you think about it. Nothing is too big.
October 9 workout recap
6 mi run (1 mi warmup, 2X2 mi @ < 10 sec of goal hm pace with 4 min rest, 1 mi cooldown)
25 min circuit (Instead of the pump: “Life’s a Bench” which can be found here)
The transitions from warmup —> workout —> break —> workout —> cooldown made this run one you’ll see a repeat of in the near future. They broke up the run nicely, and for someone who has only considered 1 mi a “warmup” in theory, they certainly changed the way I view my first and final miles. All in all, 6.35 mi were completed in under 55 min. My paces are as follows: 9:02 mi 1/warmup, 8:30 mi 2, 8:49 mi 3 (slowing way down to my goal hm pace), active break, 8:37 mi 4, 8:45 mi 5, 9:02 mi 6/cooldown.
I didn’t really follow the plan in terms of the “< 10 sec of goal hm pace” but the toggling felt natural.
1638 calories yesterday (52% carbs, 14% protein, 34% fat). Felt quite full and wasn’t happy with the ratio but there is always room for improvement!
Some treats I can’t rave enough about:
Joelle’s Paleo “Oatmeal” <— I’ve had it for breakfast every morning. So light and seemingly carby (but it’s not). Perfect.
Chopped apple and walnut salad <— half a chopped Honeycrisp apple, walnuts, and a couple grinds of sea salt with a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette served atop a bed of spinach. Divine.
Weight: 132.6 (1.2 lb loss since yesterday!)
