Another week, another recap for you all! I may or may not be on some sort of a sugar high since I just ate my magical bag of Giant Chewy Nerds after a week without sugar. They're jellybeans covered in a Nerds outer shell. Basically, little bites of heaven. I googled them (clearly this is a SUPER busy Sunday for me) and it turns out they're discontinued. Hence why I got the last bag from Walgreens on sale for 22 cents. I think a moment of silence would be appropriate:
And now that that's out of the way, the recap:
Monday: 1 hour upper body strength training: back, shoulders, chest, biceps, triceps
Tuesday: 7 Miles (1 hour) on Elliptical
--Treadmill: 1 mile walk at 10% incline
Wednesday: 6 Mile Run
Thursday: 5 Mile Run (Hill repeats)
--1 hour upper body strength training
Friday: 15 Mile Run
Saturday: 60 Minutes Yoga
Sunday: 4.5 Mile run, .5 mile walk
--1 hour upper body strength: back, shoulders, chest, biceps, triceps
Mileage (including Elliptical Miles) = 39 Miles
Total Running Miles = 30.5 Miles
Mileage isn't exactly what I wanted (goal was 35 miles of running) but overall I'm happy I managed to get some cross training in (yoga, elliptical, walking) and I FINALLY managed three strength training sessions. Woo-hoo!!
Lunch today after my run was the biggest hodge-podge ever. I started cooking a sweet potato, but I didn't know what I wanted to make with it. So I just started adding stuff in a bowl that looked tasty and I ended up with this:
Sweet potato slightly mashed with corn, melted cheese and salsa. It's the ugly ducking of foods but man did it taste delicious!
What are your fitness goals for the week ahead?
I'd like to continue with 3 upper-body strength sessions, at least one day with some yoga, and again shoot for 30+ miles of running.
Any foods that you loved that are now discontinued?
Yes. Giant Chewy Nerds. I'm almost sad I got to try them because now I know what I'm missing! Also, has anyone seen Crispy M&M's in a while? Are they gone for good? Say it ain't so!
