I feel 100% better this morning! I guess two nights of 9+ hours of sleep will do that for a girl. :) I woke up at 6 AM and promptly got ready to go to the gym.
My pre-workout snack consisted of 1/2 a rice cake and some PB:
Con cafe, of course!
Running Hiatus Workout #11
I decided to mix up my cardio by working out on both the elliptical and the rower:
- 20 minutes on elliptical, Level 5 at 50 RPM
- 10 minutes on the rower, 1650 meters
My strength training was pretty basic:
- 100 bicycle crunches
- 20 push-ups
- 10 plank to push-ups
I also did 5 minutes of foam rolling my IT Band. It hurt so much it brought tears to my eyes! But it felt sooo good afterwards. If you are not foam rolling, you are missing out!
I read Triathlete Life while on the elliptical and really started to think about my upcoming Metric Century bike race and triathlon. I’ve put together a training plan that I’ll post on Monday, and I’m just so excited to get started! It’s fun to think of myself as a multi-sport athlete and not just a runner. Putting myself in the "runner" box is dangerous! I can do ANYTHING I put my mind to, and I WILL finish a tri this summer! (If you haven’t read about my 1st failed attempt at a tri, check out this post).
My post-workout breakfast was DIVINE!
My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: strawberries, blackberries, and flax
The dogs are begging to be walked, so I better go! Have a great morning…. and come back soon, because I’ll be revealing my fun weekend getaway location! 🙂
