Good morning and Happy Tuesday!
I don’t know about you, but where I am over here in Alabama, it has been raining like crazy! I guess that is a good thing if you are a gardener, farmer, or something of that sort, but when you are a runner…it is the last thing you want to happen.
Rain messes up schedules and I like to keep my running on a schedule when I’m training. So, I sure picked a fine time to start marathon training. Boo.
Yesterday I had one of my favorite breakfasts. The Sweet Breakfast Scramble from Tina @ Carrots n Cake but I used sweet potato instead of acorn squash.
An hour or two after eating, I slipped on my running clothes
I got in a fabulous 2 mile run. I’m having to pick it back up slowly, which I’m fine with because this girl doesn’t want injuries. Just pointing that out because 2 miles doesn’t really sound like marathon training HAHA.
After my run, I went to do some suicides in my driveway. I love doing suicides because they are a high intensity training exercise so they get your heart rate up super high!!! Which is a plus!
If you don’t know what a suicide is, then check out this video
Wanted a light lunch and had leftover chicken, tomatoes, cornbread, and half of a very small sweet potato.
Later that night I was going to go run at the track and get some speed work in, but it was raining! UGH!
So, I opted for a fun workout.
- I warmed up with the Purely Twins 5 minute plank workout
- Completed 4 rounds Purely Fit 14 (my back is super sore!)
- Completed 4 rounds of *overhead press, barbell curls, lateral raises, front raises, hammer curls, upright row, and all around the worlds. I also went up on the weight the last 2 rounds to really feel the burn!
- Completed 3 rounds of the Tone It Up Best Circuit Workout
Made a quick Hummus Turkey Spinach wrap with a couple slices of avocado
Then I watched Australia with my family. Love that movie…and Hugh Jackman
