Life is back to "normal". I'm back to work, the kids are back to school, their sports are back this week. But I'm also back in training and eating better.
As predicted, that weight workout kicked my butt ... or should I say my arms. Owie! Actually I overdid it with one move and I have a little injury on my triceps (right is quite bad, left is bareable). It makes lifting my tea mug and answering the phone at work rather difficult. I'm going to let it fully heal and lower my weight a bit on that move for the next round.
Sunday night I ran 5 Km on the treadmill in 26 minutes (7.15 mph). I started off pretty slow so really had to push hard at the end to make that time. But that's about the pace I need to be to reach the goal I set for my next race. Actually, I need to be at a slightly faster pace because those hills will knock it down a bit. I'm going to train at 7.5mph on my treadmill runs for the next few weeks and if I get a chance I need to do some hill training too.
Monday night I again ran 5Km on the treadmill, but this time in 24:30 (7.6 mph) - wooohooo. Though I had to stop at about 10 minutes in and go find a hair clip because my bangs were driving me insane. So I can't really call that a true 5K time.
Today I'm taking a rest day, then lower body weights tomorrow and back to running again on Thursday. My weight is up a bit from the other day and I'm guessing it has to do with muscle recovery and all that junk. I'm not worrying about it because I know it'll only go down from here.
Had a fairly good food day today. It's REALLY hard when you've been eating junk to get away from it. It just calls your name. Today I've had:
Breakfast - 4 eggs whites cooked in 1 tsp olive oil, 2 slices Body Wise bread, 1 T light Peanut Butter
Lunch - 2 slices Body Wise bread, 3 slices turkey deli meat, 2 T Sabra Chipotle Hummus, green leaf lettuce and an apple
Afternoon Snack - 1 pkg. Motts Fruitsations
Dinner - Crockpot Chicken with carrots, 1/2 small potato &1/2 garlic bun
