New workout routine: painting, carrying lumber, climbing ladders, using saws (LEVEL 3!) Let me know when I can expect to get buff, thanks.
Without further ado, here's the numbers for this past week.
Monday: Ran 5k Race, and 1 Mile warm-up
Tuesday: Ran 6 miles
Wednesday: Rest-day (ish! Still worked on the land all day)
Thursday: Ran 5.5 miles
Friday: Ran 5.25 miles
Saturday: Ran 3.5 miles, walked 1 mile
Sunday: Ran 7 miles, walked 1.5 miles
Running mileage for the week = 30.5 miles
I'm happy with the running for the week! My goals for the next week are:
--remember what cross training is! Add some abs, yoga, etc.
--save some energy so I can handle a longer run on the weekend. 8+ miles
Since I've been trying to avoid gluten lately (not completely, just making an effort to eliminate some items and replace them with alternatives) I've been eating TONS of corn tortillas. I still haven't found a GF bread that I love, so I've been having those as wraps or bases for meals. Here are a couple of the ways I've used them the last couple of days. We'll call the first one "pizza"--corn tortilla base with lots of fresh spinach, sliced tomatoes, and sprinkled with mozzarella cheese:
I also covered some tortillas with a little sliced ham, and then covered it in broccoli and corn. Again, a little sprinkle of mozzarella. A little goes a long way here! I actually attempted to make this one vaguely mexican and topped it with salsa, and then picked them up and ate 'em like tacos!
I microwaved both of these meals (that's all I've got kitchen wise right now!) but I can imagine they would be even better after a few minutes in the oven to get them nice and crispy. Yum!
What are your workout goals this week?
25-30 miles of running, and at least 2 or 3 cross exercise sessions aside from running. Lifting, yoga, elliptical, anything!
If you like pizza, do you ever try to get a healthier version, or make your own?
I love pizza in every way, shape, and form. Sometimes you just gotta have the cheesy cheap stuff, but I prefer to make my own so I can add lots of veggies, and I prefer just a little bit of cheese instead of a think layer of it. Either way I'll take it!
