It’s Monday and I have already done half of the weekly mileage I put down as a goal, nice! But my other goal is to run a mile a day for the month of April(I signed on to a challenge that a friend is doing) so I should easily exceed my 12 mile goal if I keep at it. Yesterday’s 4 mile long run felt great, I wasn’t even dead at the end of it, I could have kept going. I’m so glad that I got a Garmin Forerunner to help me with my runs, yet again I went out to fast but slowed my pace to what my training pace for a long run should be and I’m sure that’s why I could do all 4 and still have energy, and I was even at the fast end of that pace. Today I did 2 miles then about an hour of strength training, full body with a mile and half on the treadmill interspersed to keep my heart rate up.
For breakfast I made a breakfast sandwich with Canadian bacon, an egg and eggwhite and cheese. Then did my workout. For lunch I made a salad that I stuffed into Pitas with some cut up lamb and I had a cup of blueberries on the side. For dinner I made a cauliflower mac and cheese, next time I need to cut the cauliflower smaller but it was very good, a big serving and very filling. Finally had some angel food cake with strawberries.
Mondays are stinky any way you cut it. Mondays and Thursdays are laundry day and the kitchen always looks like a bomb went off no matter how much I clean as I go. I think it’s having Ben around he just makes more mess than I do on my own. Scoop dog poop, the list goes on…
