But, that hasn't kept me from running with perseverance this week, especially since the Spring Bootie Buster Challenge started on Monday!
Summary of this week's workouts;
Monday: I went straight to the gym after school and completed a workout from Phase 4 of Best Body Bootcamp. This workout focused on strength moves with a 20 second burst of cardio between sets. I loved this workout, and I was SORE for the next two days!
Tuesday: Wound up not getting any workouts in, but I did eat heathy and drink a lot of water! I was pleased.
Wednesday: Joe and I went on a run with the dog when we got home from our schools. We started with a great pace, then I had to walk toward the end. Still under 10 min pace (really close to 9 to be exact!), which is my goal for next week's 5k!
Today (Thursday): I completed one of the Workouts of the Week for Amanda's Spring Bootie Buster Challenge. I did the moves for distance runners as I thought it would help my body in my goal to PR next week in the 5k. I did 3 sets of the 3 moves, and did a 10 minute stretching video I found on Youtube, which was also geared toward runners.
This week, I decided to try some new foods.
The first, almond butter!
I also picked up an orange pepper to add to my salads this week
|They blend in with the tomatoes and carrots|
Great new foods to add to my shopping list!
Question for you: What new food have you tried lately that you just love?
Time for me to get back to grading (it feels like it's never going to end!!). I probably won't be able to blog tomorrow (usual Friday fun!), but I'll see you sometime this weekend!
