Hello and Happy Monday! Not that most Mondays are happy, but it’s good to say at least, right? This weekend flew by, as most do, and even though we didn’t have much going on we still stayed pretty busy! I’ll start by recapping last week’s workouts, and then share some scenes from the weekend.
Monday: Iron Strength Workout, foam rolling
Thursday: 10 miles, foam rolling
Friday: upper body/stability exercises, glute exercises, stability ball workout, 4.1 miles
Saturday: Rest, foam rolling
Sunday: 2 mile warm up, Pikesville 5k in 21:40 (5.1 miles total)
Total: 27.2 miles
I’ll have the 5k recap another day this week, but it was a good race. Although I am STILL stuck in that 21:38-21:40 range since December 2013. (My PR is 21:38 and this is my 4th race in that range). Still, I was happy with how it went and I’ll talk more about it later!
So anyway, the weekend started out with some wine and working on training plans on Friday evening.
Since Saturday was a rest day, I had a relaxing morning and sat on the couch with coffee making a meal plan and grocery list.
While Rob was out running I decided to bake muffins. I’ll be sharing the recipe at some point, but I totally made them based on what I had in the house and they came out great!
We spent the day running errands and picked up our race packets. The running store was next to a Panera so we stopped in for lunch.
After getting some food prep done we headed to church and then grabbed dinner at a local bar/restaurant. Rob convinced me to share a bottle of wine with him…I told him if the 5k didn’t go well I would blame it on the wine!
Sunday morning was the 5k. I loved that they had watermelon after the race! (Along with a ton of other food, but I couldn’t eat much right after racing.)
When I got home I ate a muffin (from the day before) and made Michele’s Pina Colada Protein Smoothie! I didn’t have any coconut milk but it still came out really good.
and then I headed to the pool for about an hour. It got kind humid out so I didn’t stay very long.
I’m not quit sure where the hours of 1pm-4pm went but before I knew it I was in compression socks drinking a beer and working on blog stuff.
And that pretty much brings me to the time I am writing this post! Considering there probably won’t be anything exciting happening this evening, I will probably just leave it at that. And I think that’s plenty of pictures for one post:)
How were your workouts last week?
Do you ever drink before races?
Ever bake something when you have limited ingredients in your kitchen?
