120. My New Love Affair with a Greek

This morning, I had my very first experience in Chobani Greek Yogurt.  I am no stranger to Greek Yogurt, but I’d never purchased Chobani before.  I’ve also never had flavored Greek yogurt.  I’ve heard great things about the Chobani flavors so I decided to pick up a container of strawberry at the grocery store a couple weeks ago.  I now fully understand why every blogger I read raves about this yogurt!

 This yogurt is fantastic – extraordinary even!  I love the subtle strawberry flavor against the mild tartness of the Greek yogurt.  I love the creamy thickness.  I love that it doesn’t taste sugary (or artificial) like most fruit on the bottom style yogurts.  I loved it so much I all but stuck my face in the container to lick it clean! 

I am sold!  I foresee many, many Chobani purchases in my future.

And switching gears…TRAINING!

A couple weeks ago I signed up for the Ravenswood Run 5K on April 25th.  I’ve been really slacking on my running lately.  I know I could go out and complete a 5K right now, but it would be rough, and I definitely would not be setting any PRs.  I want the Ravenswood Run to be a good race.  It’s going to be my first race of the year (I think), and I would love to set a new PR!  It seems like a good way to start of my racing year.

 So, I’ve decided a training plan is absolutely in order.  I’ve decided to use Hal Higdon’s Intermediate 5K Training Program.  I’ll be officially starting it on Monday, and it will take my exactly to race day.  You can follow my progress here.

 This training will also get me to the point where I really need to start officially training for my triathlon.

I started a training page which I’ll be updated with various training plans and my progress.

  1. I had my first foray into Chobani this week, too! I thought I hated Greek yogurt because I’d only ever eaten plain and hated it. I really liked the strawberry banana one I bought.

    Can’t wait to read more about your training! I think a few people in one of my running groups run the Ravenswood 5K every year.

    1. I like plain Greek yogurt, but that’s probably I’ve never really eaten it plain. I always throw a bunch of other stuff into it – fruit, granola, pumpkin, whatever. I was really impressed with the Chobani. I’ll have to try the strawberry banana.

      I’ve never done the Ravenswood Run. I was too scared to sign up for a race that early in the year last year (I started running in January 09). Have you ever done it?

  2. Glad you liked the Chobani. As you know, it’s one of my faves. I just found the Raspberry and it is delish. The Pomegranate is my other fave.

    I just got the regular plain Greek yogurt at Trader Joe’s to add to smoothies. Gonna try to add a little honey or jam to it. YUM!
