Good morning and Happy Monday everyone. Hope you all are starting off the week on a good note 🙂
My morning is starting with a new to me apple: ginger granny smith from the farmer’s market. YUM! So much flavor…
And a not so healthy snack for later . . .
I was weak this weekend and bought them from Sprouts.
Pop tarts are something I LOVED as a kid that has unfortunately not left me. At least these are natural and organic, right? All about balance 🙂 And now onto normal Monday morning business 🙂
Remembering the theme of flexibility around here, I created a schedule of work outs for the week.
Zach and I are going to the Bronco’s game Thursday night and leaving fairly early Friday morning for New York for the wedding of one of his college roommates.
I do hope to squeeze in a long run while I’m in New York, but I’m not setting a distance/time goal. I’m also giving myself some flexibility to not get it in this week if it means sacrificing time with friends during an exciting weekend.
Workout Plan For the Week: August 26, 2013
- Monday – YOGA + 20 minute progressive speed work on the treadmill
- Tuesday – 5+ mile steady run
- Wednesday – 30 minutes spinning 30 minutes strength training/circuit training
- Thursday – 10k run
- Friday – Yoga/Rest – Fly to New York
- Saturday – Long Run
- Sunday – Recovery run
I planned my weekday runs to be a tad longer to help counteract the potential lack of long runs this week, and cutting back on the speed work. Of course, I am going to listen to my body and respect what it tells me, as always 🙂
Workout for the Day:
My workout for the day was exactly as planned, although if I’m being totally honest, I was not really feeling it. Primarily wasn’t feeling the speed work, even though it was only 20 minutes. BUT — I did squeeze into my big girl pants and got it done, and as always am a happy camper now 🙂

Once again, I left a sweaty mess and legs exhausted but ready for the day 🙂
And now . . . I’m at work ready for a busy day!
I do have some fun planned for the afternoon though :). I finished Divergence, so I have a planned review for this afternoon.
AND I have a little adventure to take on the west line this afternoon….That will be a fun write up!
Have a good morning!
