Sleeping for 10 hours, waking up to watch movies, and then heading back to bed for an afternoon nap were just a few of the strenuous activities I took part in today. And of course, eating. Let me redeem myself by filling you in on the week's workouts:
Monday: 3 Mile Run, 1.5 Mile Walk
Tuesday: 7 Mile Run, 25 Minutes of Yoga, Push-Ups
Wednesday: Rest Day
Thursday: 6 Mile Run
Friday: 1 hour P90X Plyometrics, Push-ups, ab work
Saturday: 20 Mile Run
Sunday: 9 Mile Hike
Total Mileage: 47 miles (only 36 miles were running)
Overall, pretty happy with the week. Marathon training is going well, I'm still feeling strong and making time for a little cross training as well. Next week I want to make sure to add another swimming session to the mix. I think it's something I could really get into!
Today's rainy weather made me want to make a traditional roast dinner--English style. It's a favorite of hubby's, and I figured with all the spare time, why not? Except--the local grocery stores are closed, so I had to make do with what I had on hand. I ended up with garlic baked chicken breast, broccoli, corn, and roasted potatoes:
I missed out on what might be the best part of an English roast dinner...yorkshire pudding! The fluffy baked guys on the following plate:
Next time I'll make those myself--it wasn't a proper roast dinner without it! Perfect end to a rainy, lazy day.
What is the ultimate comfort meal for you?
I love a roast dinner--reminds me of what my grandma used to make on Sunday nights. Except I have never been a fan of gravy on top--I like to keep things crispy!
Any exercise today? Do holidays make you tackle extra fitness activities or enjoy a lazy day?
Usually a holiday makes me want to spend time outside doing extra exercise--but the rain encourages movie watching and lazing on the couch, definitely!
