Today is the VERY LAST day to end my Bob’s Red Mill giveaway! I will select the winner in Monday’s post!
Here are the three recipes I made this week from the 3 products I received:
This has been quite a week, but i’d say it has really made me refocus on myself and my health and that is never a bad thing.
Here is a quick run down of my training this week:
3.15 mile run. Slow and easy.
70 minutes spinning.
5.35 miles walk/run intervals.
50 minutes easy spinning.
4.14 mile run.
60 minutes spinning.
3.14 mile run.
50 minutes spinning.
I knew I needed to switch things up.
I started with my “long run” for the week which was 6 miles. It was tough.
I felt good, but I can tell I have some work to do to get my cardio back up to where it used to be. That’s okay – I was prepared for that in a lot of ways.
I ran the first 6 miles at a 9:50 pace. I felt good and accomplished once it was over.
I decided that my legs needed a good recovery so I ended up walking one extra mile very slow.
After I had finished my run I decided it was time to get some weights in. I visited my old stomping ground the free weight section and then focused on core work.
I ended up completely 3 x 1 minute planks. I haven’t done planks in a long time, I forgot how awesome they were!
I did attempt to spin a little to cool down but only made it less than 10 minutes and decided to call it a day. It was a great decision.
Overall I am pretty happy with this week, but there some changes obviously that need to be made.
Changes going into a new week:
1. Create a Workout Schedule – This will help me stay on track, not add miscellaneous extra workouts in that I don’t need to do, and also stay organized.
2. Two to Three Days Spinning MAX – There will be no more than 2-3 days of spinning this week. Since I burn out on it this past week, it is time to take a step back.
3. Strength Training – This HAS to become a bigger focus. I will be replacing some of my spinning workouts with a more focused strength plan.
4. Focus on What’s Important – Focus on the things that mean the most right now. Aside from the workouts we have a few pretty challenging things going in right now, and I really want my focus to be on my husband as we go through these times together.
What are your goals for the week?
