Happy Thanksgiving Monday everyone 🙂
Zach and I are headed to North Carolina to spend the holiday with his family tomorrow afternoon and I could not be more excited! Just 1.5 days to get through and we’re on our way to good eats, family and fun!
I swear my alarm changed itself last night. Seriously. Before I went to bed, I set it to 6 AM so that I would have plenty of time to snooze for a few before getting up for a run.
Welp, my alarm went off and I didn’t even look at it, assuming it was 6 AM. I let it snooze for a few minutes, and realized my alarm was set for 613?! How random is that?
I ended up getting out of bed around 628 and hurrying myself to the gym. I managed to squeeze in 4 miles before work which was fine-by-me.
Workout of the Day: 4 speed miles on the treadmill
Looked like this:
- 1 mile warm up (930 pace)
- 6 X 400’s at 8.0-8.3 pace with 400 recovery in between
- Total of 4 miles.
I’ve got some SPEEDY in laws (I know I’ve chatted about this before) — like elite runner brothers, BQ father in law, speedy sister in law, etc etc, so I am fully expected to get my butt handed to me at some point this weekend.
I have thought about how I want to plan out this weekend, and when it comes down to it, I don’t want to.
This weekend is the first holiday that all of the Jara clan has been together like this. All the kids, their spouses, etc. It’s something I want to enjoy…and let’s face it, they’re all health freaks, so we’ll fit stuff in :). Here is my “plan/goals”
Workout Plan Of the Week:
- Monday: 4 speed miles on the treadmill/ strength
- Tuesday: 4 recovery miles
- Wednesday-Saturday: ENJOY FAMILY, 3 runs of any distance, 1-2 yoga classes with MIL.
- Sunday: Run in Denver
Question of the Morning: How are you switching up your routine for Thanksgiving? Are you working out MORE, Less, the same?
