I have been kind of MIA and only posted once last week (I usually was posting 2-3 times a week)…but I don’t have much to talk about at the moment! My marathon training is over so my workout routine is nothing exciting…just running a bit and lifting a bit…but man, that first day back to lifting REALLY kills you. I was so sore and tired for 2 days following a simple lifting workout with TEN POUNDS lol. Yikes…
So I just wanted to recap with you all what has been going on with me and get your input on a few things as well
- This past Friday and Saturday I went up to Massachusetts for the NJCAA Division III XC National Championship. I had one runner qualify and although he did not have the race he wanted, I am proud of him. He did not skip one practice all season and worked his butt off. I hope we are able to go back next year but with more of our runners!
- I have a 15K race on December 22 that I am not prepared for at all lol
- I think I’m going to start PowerFlow Yoga? Has anyone tried it? It’s hot yoga and more movements so it’s more strength based. I really want to make spin and yoga more of a regular thing…it’s just hard fitting it in with running when you’re trying to run 5 days a week. Any tips on how to do this?
- Only two more Rutgers football games left. It has not been a good season, and Dan is hoping the current coach gets fired. Some of our games have just been embarrassments.
Goals for this week:
- Eat better. My nutrition has not been good BUT I have started incorporating smoothies back into my routine. I use PlantFusion’s Phood powder, which is more of a nutritional supplement and packed with vitamins, minerals, greens, probiotics and more. I have been making my smoothies with Califia Farms double espresso cold brew, vanilla Phood, banana, spinach and PB. So delicious!
- Run at least 4 times this week, with a longer run of 6 miles.
- Lift minimum twice a week and try PowerFlow.
Not that exciting of a post but oh well. Let me know if you’ve tried PowerFlow or incorporate yoga into your running routine…and does it help?
Do you have a favorite college football team?
