Speaking of exercising, I did Fitnessista’s Workout this afternoon. The exercises were GREAT. It took me 35 minutes with a 5-minute cardio warm-up to finish everything, and my heart rate stayed around 100 bpm the entire time. A-ma-zing workout, Gina!
After lifting, I left the gym and did a 4.25-mile loop. It was nice, gentle run. Here are my statistics for the weight lifting + run:
- Duration: 1 hour, 25 minutes
- Average Heart Rate: 137 bpm
- Maximum Heart Rate: 187 bpm
- Calories Burned: 553
I’ve been reading the website Rae pointed me to, and it has a lot of great information on the science behind recovery snacks. Without getting too crazy about the carb to protein ratio, I’m aiming for a nice balance. About two hours before my workout, I had my usual Kashi Go Lean!, blueberries, and yogurt mix. Right before I left for the gym, I had a few slices of turkey meat, some raisins, and a few small slices of cheddar and Colby pepperjack. It was a great pre-run snack!

I’m quite enjoying being home on a Saturday night! I have an intense run planned for the morning, and I think Future Husband’s brother is going to come over in the evening for a light run. He is interested in training for the 5k that is at the same race as my upcoming 15k. I try to convert everyone to running! 🙂
Have a great night, everyone.
