Hiiii there! Having a good week so far?
I just got back from an AMAZING sunrise run…a runrise! haha
Anyway, I warmed up by taking Niko for a quick 10 minute walk, and then as I took off on my own, the sun was just popping over the horizon. Beautiful. I believe I made a new PR to boot – I ran the entire 4.15 miles at an average speed of 8:55. Woohoo!
A word about speed – and racing: this weekend is the Steamboat Classic, and I’ve decided to run in the four mile race course. I was originally training for the 9 mile course, but I haven’t gotten a long run in over 7 miles in the past, well, month. So I’m going to go for the four miler and go for speed! Now I just have to figure out how I’m going to get there…It’s a big race, and it’s about 45 minutes to an hour away.
My first day back at the Big Insurance Company was yesterday, and it was actually a pretty good day! Busy it was, but stressful? Surprisingly not!
I was up at the ungodly hour of 4:00 a.m. to get ready for a 5:00 and 6:00 a.m. training appointment followed by a full day at BIC (the big insurance company.) I was feeling pretty rough this early, but nothing a cup of coffee and a good attitude can’t cure 😉
On the way to BIC from the gym, I snacked on a delicious wrap!
Only showing you the outside, because the inside looked more like … vomit? It tasted amazing though – one banana, full in tact, topped with a mixture of almond butter, protein powder, maca, and a wee bit of yogurt to make it spreadable.
The morning really sped by at the BIC, and around lunch time, I got together with an old coworker to sit, chat, eat, and break.
I felt like KERF with my salad + yogurt + cereal combination. Loved it!
I also snacked on an apple and a bit of trail mix throughout the day.
Exactly eight hours from when I arrived, I declared it quittin’ time. Once home, the hubski, Niko, and I took a quick stroll before I cranked out 30 sweaty minutes on our elliptical.
Post-workout nourishment was an unpictured apple + natural PB.
Then I was off to the gym to train two last clients for the day.
Dinner was boring (but good!) leftovers.
This time, sans shrimpies.
Surprisingly, I still had a bit of energy and felt great when all was said and done last night! I think this is going to be a good thing. Plus, I had my act together today. Had everything layed out the night before, had the coffee ready, lunch ready, etc. However, there was one mishap. As I changed from training clothes into my dress clothes this morning, I left my shirt and lululemon crops in the lockerroom! Doh! LOL I cut myself some slack as it was a crazy day.
The (good) kicker? When I got back to the gym 12 hours later, there were still there! No one stole my trainer shirt or Lululemon pants (that’d be kinda gross if they did, but still!)
