It’s been an exhausting week, as we were recovering from our travels and making giant to-do lists for the next couple of months before we leave. My running took a back seat, partly because I was tired, partly because my shin was a little unhappy with all the hills last week in NJ, and partly because I knew I should cut back anyway before Saturday’s race.
So I did very little running, and it was kind of a nice break! Here’s how the week looked:
Sunday: 45 minute outdoor bike ride and 30 minute weight circuit
Monday: 4 easy stroller miles
Tuesday: Double spin- subbed am class 1 hour, taught pm class 1 hour
Wednesday: 40 minute strength routine, (used this one from pinterest plus some lunges and core work)
Thursday: 4.5 easy run, 8:10 pace
Saturday: 5k race!! (2 mile warm up, race, 2.5 jog to gym, 1 hour spin, 2.5 jog home= 10 miles total)
The race was fun! The weather was perfect and I felt good the whole time. I was so, so, so close to my goal… more details in my race recap tomorrow!!
Round two of the sugar detox begins tomorrow! I’m planning out some snack ideas to keep me happy- fruit and nuts, hard boiled eggs, greek yogurt, raw veggies and smoothies. Here’s our menu plan:
Sunday: Dinner with friends (need to make a quick dessert today!)
