A Little Late… Week In Review
Monday: I usually take Monday as a rest day, but due to doctors appointments and work obligations, I had to change some runs around. Since I’d had a long run the day before, I kept it easy, with my hear rate low. Seems like a long time ago now, but last Monday was the Solar Eclipse. At daycare, Kara did some crafting and at work I planned an ice cream viewing party for our 550 employees. It was a hit! Kara has started loving to put her hair in a pony tail and is still loving all the food, haha. Look at that balanced plate!
Tuesday/Wednesday: Western Bagel Perfect 10 Bagels with strawberry cream cheese and pb have been my go to snack in the late morning. The protein tides me over to lunch and the carbness satiates me. There’s a few more days to take advantage of Nuun’s Friends and Family Discount! I did a mini progression run Wednesday just to mix the paces up on the treadmill. Kara is all about being like mommy and had to put my necklace on. I love that girl. Her shirt says, “Strong Like Mom.” Heck ya!
Thursday: Started off the best way… with a Jolene run! We negative split that run like a boss and really nailed that last mile. It felt amazing.
At work, we went to Doc B’s for lunch for a co-workers birthday. We got their sweet potato chips and guac as an app and they were phenomenal! I wanted to keep it healthy, so I got a wok bowl with Tuna and sauce on the side. It didn’t really need a sauce (but I love roasted veggies so there’s that) so I just lightly drizzled it on. The birthday boy got a burger and had a few bites left over so I jumped on that opportunity and tried it- SO GOOD.
Friday: Tempos are my favorite workouts, so I did an easier tempo run and felt strong the whole time. Made it to work by 7AM- boom. In the afternoon, Kara and I had a froyo date. It’s becoming a Friday tradition and she’s getting good at using that mini spoon!
Saturday: I got to sleep in until 7:22AM! HECK YA!!! Ran an easy 6 miles on the treadmill while Kara and Todd played in the living room. They visited me a few times and got a pic for me 🙂 The weekends for the Winchell’s means pancakes!!! Chocolate chip Kodiak cakes for the win!
Sunday: In an effort to get a little extra shut eye (waking up between 3:45-4:15 every morning during the work week can take it’s toll 😉 I met my girlfriend up for a run a little later than normal. Starting a long run after 6AM in FL during the summer is just dumb, but I took the risk since I had no workout or time goal. Thankfully there was a ton of cloud cover and we kept the pace easy. I felt like I could go forever. And it. felt. awesome.
Phew! That was long! If you’re still reading (or just looking at the pics, haha) thank you! Hope everyone is having a great week so far and is looking forward to the long weekend!
