I hope you’re having a lovely day.
Mine started out with a green (ish) juice and a good run, so it was pretty much great
I had a beet that needed to be used up, so I threw it in and it turned our juice the most gorgeous shade of red. Not only that, it tasted delicious!
When I first started making us juices, I was worried about how it would sit in my stomach during a run. To be honest, it is perfect pre-run “fuel” for me! I haven’t been running more than 5-miles at a time (and don’t really plan to for a while), so it gives me just enough of a boost to not feel hungry but is super light. I’m a fan
I set out running with the hopes of making 3-4 miles. I ended up going about 3.5 miles then swinging by home and grabbing Zoey and walk/running (mostly walking!) another 1.5. When I got home, I did a few sets of pushups (50 total) and some abs + stretching. It was a great way to start the day.
After cleaning up, I decided on an old standby for breakfast.
Berries were on sale over the weekend (a big flat of blackberries for $2.99!) so I enjoyed one of my old favorites. Oatmeal, flax, plain greek yogurt, and berries. Delish!
I spent the day working away before heading to a different rec center for my Wednesday night Boot Camp. There was a slight mix-up and the gym had been double booked, but I improvised. We pulled out the step aerobics benches and did a bunch of partner plyos (i.e. 30-seconds on [partner one goes], 30-seconds off [partner two goes]). Everyone looked pretty exhausted by the end and I got some nice feedback that it was an intense but fun workout!
This evening we enjoyed leftover veggie chili and now it’s gone…thank goodness, I’m a little chili-ed out! Tomorrow night we are doing dinner with our friends/neighbors, so that should be fun. About once per week we do “supper club” at one of our houses (they live next door). The host makes the main dish and the guest brings dessert. It’s a blast!
Okay, I’m off to get ready for tomorrow and read a few chapters in my book.
Do intervals with a partner! Have one partner do an exercise for 30-seconds as hard as they can while the other one rests and alternate. During the 30-second rest, be sure to encourage the partner doing the work to do more, work harder, or go faster!
