Here is how last week went down:
Weekly Miles (all had different purposes, just giving total ran)
Monday – 6 Miles
Tuesday – 9.8 Miles
Wednesday – REST
Thursday – 6 Miles
Friday – 7.6 Miles
Saturday – 6 Miles
Sunday – 12.4 miles
Weekly Total – 47.8
I’m very happy with last weeks workouts! Things are starting to click! Now to just get this shin thing handled and I’ll be good to go!
Yesterday I had a 20k in the agenda. I was supposed to auto lap at the 5k mark and get progressively faster with each one. I did this and am very happy with how I ran. However, I’m an idiot and somehow managed to jack up my splits.
First, I plugged in 5-5k laps which would be a 25k not a 20k. I caught it a mile in, but then it didn’t lap for the second 5k. Second, I ran through the minute rest for a few of them as I forgot it was plugged in there. #rookiemoves
I hate running math, and I can never add 2+2 when I’m sweating. Good thing I’m marrying a teacher who loves math!
I didn’t realize there was an auto lap until my coach laughed at my stupidity. I was trying to plug it in as an interval workout. Live and learn!
The sunrise was gorgeous yesterday! I was also happy I took an entire container filled with ice water to not make the same mistake of hot fountain water from Saturday. I stopped to sip a few times as I did 5 loops to get the miles needed. I think having that ice cold water made the difference in keeping me cool and motivated to get back to where I had it stashed.
By the final 5k I was a sweaty mess! I pushed, repeated to myself – Move with purpose, no regrets which is the mantra I came up with before a few of my spring races. I wanted to finish strong and be proud of my week!
I fueled with GU, which always gets me through my long runs! I had the blueberry pomegranate which was tasty, although Chocolate Outrage is still my favorite flavor.
Once done with my 20k, I headed to The store to get some groceries for the week. I wanted to be better about preparing some things for my girl to eat during the day!
Three hours in the kitchen and I had the following prepped:
- Oven Roasted Carrots
- Roasted Brussels Sprouts
- Tons of chopped veggies and salad fixings
- Breakfast tacos
- Kodiak Blueberry Muffins (12g of protein each)
- Mac n Cheese
- Honey Whiskey Pulled Pork
- Overnight Oats
I am actually eating a salad as we speak with some of the carrots and Brussels above on it and they are delicious!
The kodiak muffins are a winner, and I will definitely be making these again! Lynn and I both had two for breakfast.
We then #adulted and cleaned the house and I promised I would get my car cleaned Monday after work. Hasn’t been cleaned since Virginia, it’s well overdue!
I hope y’all had a good weekend!
– Do you prep food or meals for the week on Sunday? Any methods to your madness?
– What Do you fuel with during long runs or workouts?
– How do you pack in your protein?
