My weeks always feel thrown off when I run on Sunday. But I was still in Arkansas last Sunday and wanted to take advantage of running on the trails there. To make things even more complicated, I ran a 5k yesterday, which meant another week of Sunday running. So my rest day was on Saturday, which felt really strange. However, it was nice to “sleep in” to 6:15 and get alot of errands done during the early part of the weekend!
Sunday: 7 miles in Arkansas
Monday: Iron Strength Workout
Tuesday: 5 miles (Did this 5k tune-up run) and core work
Wednesday: 15 minutes elliptical, Body Pump, CX WORX
Thursday: 3.35 miles easy with hills, core work
Friday: 4.7 miles easy
Total: 20 miles
When I say “rest” on Saturday I actually mean “went grocery shopping, did 2 hours of food prep, and cleaned the entire house”. It takes much longer to clean this place than it took to clean our tiny apartment! We even experimented with the “self-cleaning” function on the oven. Unfortunately we started it a little too late in the day and dinner was pushed back a bit. It looks cleaner, but not perfect, so I’m not sure how often I would use it.
On Sunday morning we ran a 5k…recap to come tomorrow. I’ll just say it was a hot one. After the race we stopped for egg sandwiches on our way home.
We wanted to check out our community pool (it was our first weekend around since it opened) so we went right over there at 11am to beat the crowds. It was way too hot and we only stayed out there for an hour and a half before heading back into the AC.
We were somehow hungry again so shared a frozen pizza from Trader Joe’s. I felt like a bottomless pit all day for some reason. (Usually I’m not particularly hungry after a 5k.)
Then I threw on some compression socks laid on the couch for awhile.
For dinner we made kabobs on the grill and enjoyed some beverages. We were planning to have steak and chicken with peppers, onions, and mushrooms, but somehow I bought turkey instead of chicken. I am still adjusting to doing our grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s and this is not the first time I messed up our food purchase. They still tasted good anyway!
How were your workouts last week?
Have you ever grilled turkey tenderloins before? (I googled it and apparently it’s not all that uncommon)
Who else has a compression sock tan lines?
I’m linking up with Tara for the weekend update!
