Good morning! A few housekeeping items I want to address first thing or else I'll forget- If you leave comments and your reply address is set to firstname.lastname@example.org I can not respond to you :( Please change your settings so I can email you back! I've been sending extremely wordy emails out into the emptiness bloggersphere however, if anyone is reading emails sent to email@example.com I really do hope you have a great day! Also, have you found me on Instagram yet? I'm way to obsessed with over sharing there- @ellnoelfitness
Two a day Tuesday was a major success! Last night's speed training left me feeling super accomplished. It keeps getting easier and easier so I'll need to find something more challenging soon. Christin over at Classy Southern Wife, gave me some great tips on increasing my speed. She's a certified running coach and and bottomless pit of all that running knowledge you need to know! Seriously, go tell her hello :)
Tuesday AM Work Out-
Tuesday Evening Work Out-
Bose Ball Squat with a Shoulder Press (10lb)
Ab Ripper 4 Rounds
I am majorly amped up for my first 10K race on Saturday morning. 10 Minus 3 days! My goal is to finish in under an hour. To add to the excitement, I keep getting emails about race prep. I followed 9 weeks of training to an exact T, running more than I was supposed to in the last few weeks, and it has been such an amazing experience. I couldn't feel more prepared for the race on Saturday. Bring it on Cajun Cup, I am ready for you!
Running related news- I did speed training in my new K Swiss kicks, and I must say, I think I've finally found a winner for running. My speed training routine is right at 3 miles and my feet felt amazing. I've been having trust issues with running shoes after those Asics led to my hip injury in July and then those same shoes tried to eat my feet last Thursday, but I'm really putting my faith in you K Swiss. They're super light weight and are working wonders on my flat Sasquatch lady feet.
Concluding the randomness that is this post- I tried egg beaters for the first time this morning. Mr.Noel did grocery shopping for me yesterday so I could fulfill my gym rat obligations, and accidentally purchased egg beaters instead of egg whites. They're 25 calories per serving (3 tablespoons) and taste quite similar to an actual egg. I think I've found a new foodie favorite!
My coffee cup that's getting Instagram love was a Valentine's Day gift from my Momma. Yes, my Mom and I exchange little Valentine's Day gifts. I love you Mom! If I had to take a random guess, I'd say she'd she got it at Target.
And just because I felt like it, I wore red pants to work this morning. I feel like I could do anything in these pants, dance my face off, crack the glass ceiling, and jam out to Justin Bieber at my desk. So what! I love doing whatever I want! Muahahaha! "Livin on the edge"
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday doing whatever it is that makes you most happy :)
