Round Up Time!

Happy Friday everyone! 🙂  As I sit here enjoying my “tea” of lemon, mint and Emergen-c, I can’t help but feel thankful that Friday hurried itself here for me 🙂  Phew, what a week!

Last Night

When I got home last night Zach and I immediately got to work on dinner (this girl was hungry).  On the menu was open face sammies with fresh greens and a side of grilled green beans.  My sandwich included:

  • Delicious seedy bread
  • Roast Beef
  • Cheddar
  • Tomato
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Greens dressed with olive oil and vinegar

And of course, the greens were simply grilled with Parmesan put on AFTER grilling.

We were in bed by 10 o’clock and it was glorious.

This Morning

I had planned to take it easy this morning, but I woke up with plenty of time and KNOW that I travel much easier AFTER a good sweat. I’ve mentioned it many times before — running makes me a much more relaxed person in situations I cannot control.  AKA flying.

Workout of the Day:  Easy 4 miles

I told myself at many points in this run that I could quit at any point, since it was technically a rest day.  BUT — I felt fine and knew that I could keep going, so I did.  4 miles, check.


Let’s just be real here.  I did NOT do a great job of meeting all my goals this week.  Here was my plan for the week:

  • Run daily (one day above 4, at least 3 AT 4 miles)
  • 5 days of light strength training
  • HYDRATE!  Drinking that lemon and mint water last week did wonders.  Keep it up!

Run Daily

This one I WAS successful with.  My runs for the week looked like:

  • Monday: 4 mile AM, PM 30 minute pyramid run
  • Tuesday: 4 mile AM
  • Wednesday: 6.25 mile 60 minute run
  • Thursday: 4 mile AM
  • Friday: 4 mile AM

For a total of 25.53 miles since Monday.   Not too shabby on this one

5 days of light strength training

Well, I did one day of the full strength training, and 3 days of abs.   Upps.


Yeah, this one was just totally put to the back burner.  I’m sorry.


I’ve done well with this one with my water + lemon and mint.

Some is better than none, right?  It was a crazy week and I stock with what was good for me.  Running = destressing.

And finally: FOOD PORN!

  1. That’s awesome! I’m so, so envious of your run right now. I tried to get in a 4 miler today and failed. Got in 3.3 on the dreadmill with tempo changes every minute or so. I’m pretty sure I’m burning myself out but I can’t stop myself either. Fly safe, Jaras!
