But first, here's a look at my week of workouts. Much, much better than the previous week. Yay!
Monday - 2 mile run with Sallie. Time - 22:48. Took it real easy, trying to ease back into it after more than 10 days off. Tested out my new Asics. They were great!
Tuesday - REST
Wednesday - 4 mile run on the treadmill. 38:55. I'd intended on 5 miles, but stopped after 4, since I was taking so many walk breaks. I may have pushed it a bit too much for just coming back. M1 included a walking warm-up and took 11:03 min. M2 was done at 6.8 speed. M3 was at 7.0, with one 10-sec breather in the middle. M4 was TOUGH! I also tested out my new trails shoes. I don't love them, but I figure they might feel different on a trail??
Thursday - Pinterest workout - Quick Arms & Abs. And some yoga stretching and balance work.
Enjoying the Course's pin on Pinterest.
Friday - REST
Saturday - Unleashed Body & Mind. Really tough workout that made my legs feel like jello!
Sunday - 8.63 miles. 1:38:16; 11:32 avg pace. I had 9 miles on the schedule, but with taking the 2 previous weekends off + the killer workout the day before, I was going to be happy with anywhere from 5-9 miles, so I'm pretty happy about the 8.6. :) I took Sallie with me for the first 1.75. It took about 4-5 miles before my legs loosened enough to get to a somewhat normal pace, but my quads were pretty much killing me the entire time. I'm glad I pushed through, but wowza am I sore still this morning!
With only 7 weeks until my half marathon and 8 weeks until Ragnar, my running schedule is looking insane! It's a little intimidating to see it all out there, but I'm going to do my best. :)
Now, let's see what I have planned for dinner this week.
Monday - Leftovers
Tuesday - Chicken and rice (still need to find a recipe) and roasted cabbage (because this looked so good!)
Wednesday - Eggs with asparagus and toast. I had this after my run yesterday morning, and it was pretty good. I thought it would might a nice, quick weekday dinner with the addition of some toast. :)
Thursday - Broccoli cheese roll-ups with a side salad.
Friday - French bread pizza with asparagus. This will be something of an experiment.
Saturday - Enchilada soup. I never got around to making this last week.
