Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a successful and productive week. Last week I was able to get 5.5 miles in on the treadmill. Monday’s are usually rest days for me because of the long miles on Sundays, but since I did not run/walk on Sunday I did 2 miles on the treadmill on Monday.
Tuesday was NOT a good day at work for me and I ended up staying at work too late and didn’t make it to kettle bell class or get any miles in on this day. I was really upset! I don’t know about you but the gym and/or running on the trail is a stress reliever to me. There is nothing like a long run to clear my mind and take me away from everything. We had some crazy weather in are area a couple of days last week so the gym canceled classes on Wednesday. I did get some miles in on the treadmill on Thursday, but just 3.5 miles.
I am trying to stick with my healthy eating habits. This was my lunch on Tuesday, half wrap, Stacy’s Pita Chips, tomatoes, and a cheese stick.
Friday was my hubby’s birthday so we had a nice dinner out at a local Japanese restaurant and I finally got my hair colored.
Saturday, per my training I was supposed to run/walk 4 miles, but I did not get around to doing anything. Now Sunday, I am happy to say I got out and completed 7.23 miles. I have not done that many miles in a long time. This run was done at our local Rail Trail. This trail is a combination of dirt trails in the woods and pavement. Needless to say my legs, hips and right side is hurting tonight. I wonder if anyone else has noticed their ribs hurting after a long run? So the 7 miles took my almost 2 hours to run and I feel that is way off from where I need to be. I do feel that the treadmill intervals are helping me move faster but I have a long way to go.
So today has been a rest day for me and I would say my cheat day for food. I have eaten nothing but junk food for all three meals of the day.
My cats are trying to help me write this blog.
Tabby in the right picture is grumpy because his brother buster is on my shoulder. Can we say jealous!!!
This week’s goals: Staying with the training program – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday 4 miles. I think there is a 5K I might be running in on Saturday, if so this will be my first 5k this year. Sunday – 6 miles
Continuing with my healthy eating program and drinking my Shakeology daily. Something else I want to work on is prepping food for each week.
