The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World Review

This post is sponsored by The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World book by Allison Sher.

I was given a digital copy of this book. I thought that it would be good to read, even though I am a Gen X'er. There is just so much talk about the Millennial's right now that I thought that it would be good to get to know what is going on inside their head.


About the Book  The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World teaches young people everything they need to know to change the world, while building a happy, healthy adult life for themselves. It explains how our current social systems work, the challenges young people are inheriting and how millennials can step into our power to create a critical mass conversion to solve them. Everything from politics to spirituality to love relationships to education to sex to economics to mental health is covered. And it includes 50 or so juicy, true life stories from millennials across the country…

Week In Review - Week 2 - 50K Training

This week, thankfully, was an easy step back week.

After doing the 16 miler on Sunday in my black Brooks PureCadence that I wore most of this year, my right knee and heel were very unhappy most of this week. Time to switch out those shoes for my blue pair, and I NEED to invest into the pink Brooks PureCadence's.

Monday: Rest
Tuesday: 4 miles scheduled, 4 miles completed

Post-run
I made sure to look as super sexay as I ran around my neighborhood

Wednesday: 4 miles scheduled, 4 miles completed
So proud of my mile times.
 I actually negative splitted. I am proud.  My legs were not quite awake but I am not complaining.

Thursday: 4 miles scheduled, 4 miles completed



Went to the clubhouse treddy & this is where my knee & heel was bothering me. I had to ice a couple of times afterwards before work.

Friday: Rest

So thankful for a rest day. So thankful and I will be getting more appreciative of these days in my heavier weeks. I actually went shopping. Braved the mall for a new bra (went down a cup size & needed a newer, although sadly smaller one. I am also searching for a new bed pillow. My regular pillow needs to be replaced, but where I got it at originally, isn't selling the type anymore. Buying a new pillow is one of the worst thing in the world.

Saturday: 6 miles scheduled, 6 miles completed


 So happy with my mile times. I really pushed on that last mile!

Snow is finally here

It was a cold hour out on the greenbelt. But my knee and heel didn't bother me. It was really hard to go and run (average 10:32 pace!) because it was so cold. But I did warm up and was quite sweaty after. I did make one of these after. Wow. I really recommend having one. Or 2.

Pre-run freezing
Sunday: 4 miles scheduled, 4 miles completed


I decided to do intervals today. Each mile went from 3.0-7.0.
0.0-.05 mile: 3.5
.05-.10 mile: 3.0 (drink water)
.10-.8 mile: 5.5
.8-.85 mile: 6.0
.85-.9 mile: 6.5
.9-1 mile: 7.0
I did that for 4 miles.

Then I went on the eliptical for an hour because 4 miles didn't seem like enough of a workout. ;-)

I won't be saying that next weekend because I have a 20 miler scheduled!

How was your week/weekend?

  3. I really admire your stamina and love the pink laces and "sexy neighborhood" run look. I have no doubt you'll be well-prepared for the 50-miler. You're amazing. Keep up the fantastic work!
