Another crazy weekend!
I spent the majority of the day baking for my bake sale on Saturday. I took a break to go to class and go on a bike ride, but baked from 8-11 and 7-2am! Craziness. I was really worried I wouldn’t have enough but clearly overestimated the amount of people that would be interested in buying my baked goods. Hmph.
– Chocolate chip cookies
– Healthy zucchini muffins
– Pumpkin muffins
– tons of brownies
– Peanut butter cookies
– Peanut butter and chocolate pretzel sandwiches
Too many desserts? Just ask my roommates who were begging me to take the treats away… after I had brought way more than half over to a house full of boys.
After the bake sale I attempted a run. I’ve been having pain in my quads during the past week which was probably the result of a Zumba class I took plus lifting and not stretching as much as I should be… I managed 2 miles at a run/walk, which was unbearable partly due to the heat and humidity.
BBQ was on the agenda for Saturday night. I brought my own veggie burger and piled on avocado, tomato, and cheese. Delicious. Even a certain meat-lover was pretty jealous of my creation 😉
I tried to make it out, but was exhausted from staying up late and getting up early so I headed home around 10. Ha.
I slept in until almost 10am! Unheard of. I even went to bed at 11:30.
We got some bagels in the morning at our favorite bagel shop. I sprung for the Long Trail since it was basically lunchtime. The Long Trail is a bagel with turkey, sundried tomato spread, garlic & herb cream cheese, lettuce, and tomato. The first few bites were good, but the sundried tomato spread was not my cup of tea. I’m sticking with my bagels & cream cheese from now on.
I had an appointment at 1pm, but the person I was meeting didn’t show so I spent the afternoon working on my survey for my thesis. I managed to finish it and we just have a couple of things to work out before it can be submitted for approval.
I attended my first spin class at UVM on Sunday night. It was pretty good, I was pleasantly surprised. I also enjoyed that the bikes had computers so you could see how many rpms, miles, and calories burned. I also sweat so much, it was pretty gross (and awesome). I also completed my second workout of NROLFW 1A.
Today was pretty lazy. Woke up super late (again!) and ate breakfast at home since I wanted to go to a fitness class at 12:15. They had spinning AND yoga 12:15-1 both with super awesome instructors so I couldn’t choose! For the sake of my quads, I chose yoga. I was glad but my balance was so off! I really need to order new contacts. My glasses kept falling off during class and it really put a damper on my zen 😉
The rest of the day I just chilled and did homework. I finally did a load of laundry tonight, so now I have nice smelling clothes 🙂
I also want to do a quick weekly wrap-up of my workouts. As I’m getting closer to the half marathon, I really want (need!) to be sticking with my workouts. So let’s see…
Sunday: Rest (day after triathlon)
Monday: 16 mile bike ride + Zumba
Tuesday: 6×400 at 5k pace (3 miles) + Workout 1 NROLFW Stage 1A
Wednesday: 10 mile run + short bike ride
Thursday: Kundalini Yoga (1 hour) + Workout 1 NROLFW 1B
Friday: 16 mile bike ride
Saturday: 2 mile run
Not bad, not great. I need to step up my mileage and get in quality runs, not junk runs like Saturday’s. I also cut my speed workout short. I was supposed to do an 8×400, but I did it after work and was starving while I was doing it.
Here’s what’s up for this week:
Sunday: 50 minute spin class and Workout 2 NROLFW Stage 1A (done!)
Monday: 45 minute power yoga (done!)
Tuesday: 3 mile run + Workout 2 NROLFW Stage 1B
Wednesday: 8 mile run
Thursday: 4 mile run + yoga
Saturday: 5 mile race!
