Other than a little bit of shoveling on Monday and Tuesday all of my workouts took place inside this week. Digging out from the blizzard left me pretty sore, so the first part of the week was on the lighter side with other workouts. I started a week free trial at a gym on Wednesday, so at that point I was able to start running on a treadmill.
Walk: 1.5 miles
Tuesday: Shoveling plus some yoga and core work
Walk: 2.25 miles
Wednesday: 5 miles on the treadmill and core work
Walk: 2 miles Push-ups: 20
Thursday: I had no motivation to go to the gym so I followed this strength circuit to get in a bit of cardio without leaving the house
Walk: 2.77 miles Push-ups: 45
Friday: 3 miles on the treadmill and core work
Walk: 2.6 miles Push-ups: 10
Saturday: 6 miles on the treadmill
Walk: 4 Push-ups: 12
Sunday: Strength workout and went for a walk
Total: Run: 14 Walk: Push-ups: 4 days
Yearly Mileage: 174.98/2016
Even though it’s warmed up a bit I am still having a hard time finding anywhere to run outside. I know I will get really frustrated when I make it a quarter of a mile and then hit a point where I cannot go any further. This is a picture of the snow accumulation from our basement door as of early last week:
One of my goals for this year was to get back into doing meal planning and prep, and while I started off the year strong, I got a couple of weeks reprieve by being away in Florida and then because of the blizzard. So this week I got back to it, and thought I would share my plan and how I prepped this weekend.
Sunday: Crunchy cashew Thai quinoa salad with chicken
Monday: Salmon, roasted red potatoes, asparagus
Tuesday: On our own (I’m meeting friends for drinks/food)
Wednesday: Chicken (not sure how I will cook it yet), baked potatoes, broccoli
Friday: Pasta, turkey meatballs, and salad
Other than prepping some of the food for meals, I also made a frittata for breakfasts, roasted some sweet potatoes and cooked steak for lunches, cut up some veggies, and made these oatmeal cookie protein bites and soft ginger molasses cookies. We also had lots of errands to do, plus I ended up cleaning basically the entire first floor of the house after I made a mess in the kitchen. It was a busy but productive weekend!
