Tomorrow’s Friday again…any big weekend plans?
Hopefully I’ll be having some friend time, get some major house cleaning done, and wrap up a few loose school ends. Oh, and exercise and eat too
So, I was completely out of commission yesterday. I have never, ever had a 36-hour migraine and this one just lingered and lingered. I woke up with my headache on Wednesday too, but walked the dog and powered through a bunch of work before caving in and taking an Imitrex.
Heavy Duty Med + Darkness + Ice Pack + Sleep = Relief.
All I could stomach yesterday for dinner was a smoothie, so I made a monster one.
This morning I decided against setting an alarm to make sure my body got enough rest. I woke up at 7am headache free and ready to take on the world. I was also starving!
Since I wasn’t able to meet Lauren for a run this morning, I ended up hitting the treadmill mid-morning for an awesome HIIT session. Elisa also joined in on the
Progressive 30/60/90 Intervals
warm-up 5 min @ 4.5-6.5
30-sec @ 8.5 mph
30-sec @ 6.3 mph
60-sec @ 8.0 mph
60-sec @ 6.3 mph
90-sec @ 7.5 mph
90-sec @ 6.3 mph
repeat last 6-minutes seven times
2-min @ 7.5 mph
cool down 1-min @ 4.5 mph
I can’t remember the last time I did speedwork on the treadmill and it kicked my buns. We went about 6.25 miles total and were both super sweaty…success!
I cleaned up, trained some clients, had a few meetings, then trained some more clients. It was a busy day, so I’m glad I packed my food bag (something I never regret ).
I ate the banana/AB between clients kind of in a rush, but I needed to get something because I was teaching the evening BodyPump class. Believe it or not, in all my months of teaching this class I have never taught the 6:30 PM timeslot, and it was a blast! I had a ton of energy and really enjoyed the participation and enthusiasm of the class.
For dinner tonight I threw together a bowl of leftovers that I half consumed before realizing it was good enough to be pictured on the blog. Oops! I owe ya one
Okay, off to shower and relax.
Have a great night!
*CHALLENGE of the DAY*
Eat more servings of vegetables than fruits today! See if you can eat double the amount of veggies…while getting 6-9 servings total. Studies indicate that people who fill up on fruits and veggies tend to weigh less and protect themselves from cancer and other diseases.
