It ended up being a pretty good workout - a warmup, 1x2 miles, 90 second walk, 1x1 mile, and a cooldown to finish things up. These miles gave me the confidence I need to know I'm on track to race well whenever that might be. At this rate, it might not be til spring!
I miss wearing this beautiful singlet!
The main positive about not racing on Sunday is my legs didn't need as much recovery time so it's full steam ahead with training! Here's what's on my plan:
Monday: 5 mile run w/strides + Y-Kettle Bell Intervals
Tuesday: 8 mile workout
Wednesday: 6 mile recovery run + Y-Fuse + Y-Core
Thursday: 6 mile run + Y-Blitz + Y-Kettle Bell Intervals
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: 10 mile run
Sunday: 5 mile recovery run
Total: 40 miles
I'm still focusing on cleaning up my diet so these miles and workouts will be fueled with healthy eats. A sample day this week might look like this:
Breakfast: Blueberry Oatmeal* + 1 serving plain, low-fat Kefir
Snack 1: 1 serving plain, low-fat Greek yogurt + 1/8 cup Bear Naked Fit granola
Snack 2: 2 cups raw vegetables
Lunch: Bean Burrito** + Banana
Snack 1: 1 serving beef jerky (I like Krave Chili Lime)
Snack 2: 1 Picky Bar
Dinner: 1 serving Lentil Spinach Curry + 2/3 cup cooked farro + 1 apple
Lentil Spinach Curry
My questions for you:
- What's on your training/workout plan this week? Which workout are you most excited about?
- What does your nutrition plan look like this week?
- Random: What spring clothing item are you most looking forward to wearing?
I can't wait to pull out all my spring sandals. Enough with the boots!
