Happy Monday Morning! I hope your weekend was fun filled and productive. Mine was mostly those things, but I still feel very unprepared to travel to my parent’s house in a few days for Christmas. I crossed several of my to do list items off this weekend, but I think I added an equal amount of new things that need to be dealt with. Sigh.
Without further ago, here’s a summary of how my workouts went this past week. You’ll note, once again, the lack of mileage. I keep trying – and failing – to find ways to fit in a long run. And long is relative. For me, long right now would be 8+ miles. For me 3 months ago, 8 miles was just another run of the mill tempo run day. Crazy! Maybe this week? Fingers crossed.
M – 60 minute strength training class + 3 mile run
T – 60 minute total conditioning class (squats, lunges, push ups, planks, sit ups, etc.)
W – OFF
Th – 5 mile run with a friend (much needed!) – avg. pace 8:45ish + 60 minute kickboxing class at night (note: two-a-days may have been okay in high school, but they are tough now!)
F – OFF
Sa – 60 minute strength training class + 60 minute kickboxing class
Su – 4 mile run (avg. 7:47)
- Weather that’s in the 40s for the month of December! Last year we were getting hammered with snow storm after snow storm, so even though it’s been awhile since I’ve seen the sun poking through, I’ll take the mild temps!
- Chocolate and raspberry chia pudding – Does a better combination of foods exist? I would argue no.
- My (relatively) new breadmaker. It has a gluten free setting on it, and I have had the best results with it. Love it!
- Continuing to build Christmas traditions. We’ve done various models of Gingerbread houses since the girls were born, and even though my kitchen always ends up a complete disaster, and one of the houses will inevitably fall apart at some point and my girls consume WAY too much sugar during the process – it still manages to make me smile.
