Some of us are crawling (almost)…
Some of us are running.
I had a lovely run this morning. I did 4.5 miles, about 0.5 mile longer than my goal per my training plan. This week hasn’t been so great in terms of my training… I really did emotionally re-commit last week, but the past few days have been crazy between the clinic move, my work trip, and everything in between. I’m starting to realize that whenever my week is even slightly weird, it’s gonna throw my workouts for a loop. That’s okay – as long as I still do it when I can.
Not only did I quite a bit farther than required, I also pushed it really hard. Wahoo for speed!
Came home and made a light by tasty lunch. My appetite was crushed by my workout – does that ever happen to you? I’m sure it will kick back in soon – oh, in approximately an hour or so.
My brother-in-law recently showed me how to make ‘juice’ with my Vitamix blender (which, by the way, is expensive as crap but tooooooootally worth it). The Vitamix is so powerful that it just eats up everything I drop in, essentially creating juice when you add a little water.
In the blender (this made two drinks):
Loads and loads of raw kale
A whole apple
Juice of half a lemon
Two cups of water
Six drops of Stevia
It’s frothy at the top but pretty tasty. Like drinking a salad!
How was your training this weekend? Meh? Awesome?
I’m looking forward to kickin’ butt over the weekend and doing a really long run. Gotta get back in the saddle.
