I have something exciting to share with you guys today.. any guesses as to what it might be?!
If you completely ignored the title of this post and guessed “a new breakfast recipe” then you weren’t completely wrong! Because I do have a delcious new breakfast recipe to share with you first 🙂
This morning I woke up craving oatmeal, so I got right to it and whipped up this delicious new recipe:
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Oatmeal
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup water
2 tsp chocolate chips
4-5 strawberries, sliced
1.) Combine oats, almond milk and water in a pot and simmer on medium heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2.) Remove pot from heat and allow oats to sit for three minutes to thicken further.
3.) Mix 1 tsp of chocolate chips into the oats, and stir until completely melted.
4.) Pour oats into a bowl and top with remaining teaspoon of chocolate chips and strawberries.
5.) ENJOY 🙂
The extra liquid and longer cook time makes the oats expand, and I enjoyed a large bowl of Chocolate Covered Strawberry Oats for breakfast this morning.. so good!
After class this morning, I headed to the gym to complete 6 miles on the treadmill. My motivation this morning definitely came from finally getting the opportunity to wear this outfit that my FAVORITE COUSIN EVER bought me for Christmas. Thanks Lauren!
Please ignore the worlds dirtiest mirror.
I’ve worn the shorts before and I love them (can’t go wrong with Nike tempos), but I haven’t had the opportunity to wear the top until now because they usually keep my gym at an ungodly hot temperature and I refuse to wear anything besides tank tops in there.
Thankfully they’ve turned the temps way down, and I know longer feel like I’m going to have a heat stroke at any moment.
I guess it’s probably about time that I get to the point of this post, which is my new Running In Heels Half Marathon Training Plan!! I’m really excited about this, because I’ve been working on it for a while and I’m finally ready to show you guys! So here it is!
Take it into consideration that I’m not an expert running coach or anything, but I have completed about four different half marathon training plans, and one full marathon training plan, so I’m pretty familiar with how to get ready for a big race by now!
To create this plan, I combined a few of my previous half marathon training plans and also added a few of my own ideas.
I have always been a person who likes to do their long runs on Saturdays, because I love having Sunday as a rest day. Especially during football season. Like I’m going to miss a Packer game to run 11 miles? Please.
But if you aren’t
a good person a Packer fan, or you just like to do your long runs on Sundays, just move every workout a day forward, or adjust the plan however you would like 🙂 It’s pretty flexible.
I’m going to be starting the plan next Monday, and I’ll be posting my runs daily, so let me know what you guys think of the plan, or feel free to ask me any questions you might have about it! I’m all ears!
Tell Me: Are you currently training for any races? What training plans do you usually use (if any)?
