We’ve made it over the hump and the weekend is on its way!
Morning wake-up call was the usual coffee (not decaf!) and 1/2 clif bar. I’ve found that eating 1/2 clif bar before running is the perfect amount for me. It gives me energy without causing stomach distress.
I was way le tired this morning, but managed to get myself to the gym anyway. I have to miss tomorrow’s CPTC workout, so I thought I’d do it today instead.
1 mile warm-up
5 x 1000m @ 5K (~6:50)pace
400m easy running between the 1000m intervals
1 mile cool-down
I was so sweaty after this workout – I cooled off with a lavender soaked towel from the mini fridge at my gym. This alone makes the membership worth it! Overall, I felt pretty good, but my right hamstring was a little weird on the last interval/cool-down. I rolled it out on a softball while sitting in my desk chair and that seemed to help.
I was HUNGRY for breakfast: sliced banana, chobani greek yogurt, dried cranberries, and 1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean cereal.
And a decaf cappuccino later –
Lunch was a beauteous salad creation – lots of veggies up in here!
- arugula, shredded carrots, sliced red onion
- roasted cauliflower, marinated mushrooms
- chickpeas, blue cheese crumbles, balsamic vinaigrette
- bit of potato-egg salad
I thought about grabbing a bag of chips, but decided that a whole grain roll with some butter would be a better choice. Man, I love real butter.
My afternoon snack was one of my favorites – a peanut butter and jelly lara bar!
After leaving the office, I headed home for….more work! Dinner was a quick repeat of yesterday – spaghetti squash, marinara sauce, sliced olives, and melted cheese.
Plus a multi-bran vita top with some homemade apple buttah.
I’m about to take a break from my typing and writing and I think a couple of these sweet ‘n salty treats are in my future. Yum.
