Good morning everyone! I have been away for so over a week because last Saturday we lost power due to a blown transformer, and then after we got power, none of our cable, internet, wi-fi, or telephones came back on. We lost ALL connection, and since Verizon is on strike, it took them 8 days to get out here and fix it!
FINALLY, yesterday they came in the morning and got everything back up and running. It was tough without the internet and TV for a week! You don’t realize how much you need something until it’s gone!
So, to celebrate me being back, I have a yummy recipe and a great week of workouts to talk about!
Here’s my new favorite lunch!
Kale Fried Egg Salad
So just throw together the greens and feta, cook a fried egg, put the fried egg on top, and drizzle some balsamic, and there you have it!
Now, for my week in workouts!
4/25- Lifting day
Monday’s are pretty much designated for lifting and cross training, so I did a nice full body weight lift and 20 minutes of HIIT on the elliptical. I usually do a variety of squats, lunges, glute work, an ab circuit, and some bench pressing and shoulder stuff. I am always left shakey!
4/26- 7.1 mile run
On Tuesday I added in some fartleks to my run. I would pick up my pace and work really hard for 0.10 miles and then run a nice easy pace for 0.40 miles. I did this for 7 miles with Speckles and felt great!
4/27- 8 miles
On Wednesday I did a nice steady pace 8 mile run with Speckles. I just ran by feel and ended up running pretty fast and strong. This run was always completed with Speckles.
4/28- 6 miles
This run was all about running easy and going with how my body felt. It was a nice way to end before my rest day!
4/29- REST DAY
4/30- 12 miles
I love my Saturday long runs! I decided to go for a nice 12 miles, and I ended up running really strong the whole time. I LIVE for these runs! My half marathon is only 23 days from this day!
5/1- 7 miles
This was a nice recovery run with Speckles the day after my long run. I love just running slowly and listening to the birds on these days 🙂
Total miles: 40.1 miles
Strength workouts: 1 gym, 1 kettleball/resistance band
Total cross training: 1 HIIT
Have a wonderful week!
