October 5, 2014

So.

Finished the Pittsburgh Great Race 5K last Sunday with my friend.

Time: 55:12
Overall, #3,931 of 4,240
Females: #2,414 of 2,651
Females, aged 40-44: #257 of 272

Decided to do another 5K today (just a small local charity one, the Bryon Martini Jr Memorial 5K), by myself, to get a better idea of what I could do and where I’m starting from.
100514-5k
Time: 47:30
Overall, #72 of 149
Females: #37 of 95
Females, aged 40-44: #5 of 9
(32 women of 95 didn’t list their age… so it makes the age division difficult to judge)

I had soooo much fun both weeks! I want to do more and get better! I’ve gotten back on track with lots of walking but I need to add some running into the mix if I want to see that time improve!

my 1st real 5k

September 27, 2014

Sooooooo… it’s been forever since I posted.  Which means I likely have zero readers at this point.

Will that stop me from random posting? Uh, no.

Tomorrow I am doing the Pittsburgh Great Race.  It will be my third 5k but my first that is timed.  I will be walking more that running as the friend I’m doing it with has had various injuries every week since June and we haven’t been running so I don’t expect the time will be anything spectacular.

 

 

12 weeks and more pizza

January 18, 2014

12 weeks from today will be my first real 5K!   Timed and everything.   I am going to work towards being able to run the whole thing.  While I did do The Color Run last October, I pretty much walked it, have now idea how long it took, and from everything I’ve read it might not have even really been 5K.  I am excited!

I posted my favorite pizza the other day, using the Flatout flatbreads.  I absolutely love them and could eat a pizza every night if it was just me.  I decided to try a low carb tortilla in place of it though because the tortilla is less calories with more fiber and more protein.  So last night I made pizza with a flatbread for the husband and a tortilla for me.

I definitely prefer the taste of the pizza done on the flatbread than on the tortilla but nutritionally the tortilla wins.  The only difference between the two was the base:

flatbread:  345 calories, 17 grams protein, 5 grams fiber

tortilla:  285 calories, 20 grams protein, 14 grams fiber

Either way, it’s pizza so it’s a win to me!
