HOLA! happy saturday to all of you. hope your day has been fabulous.
mine has been great. i slept in until 10 AM today.. it felt amazing. i could have kept sleeping, but i had a lot to do today. i broke the fast with a couple favorites:
favorite on the left: kashi golean, bananas & almond milk. favorite on the right: java.
i also threw in some kashi puffs to amp up the volume a bit.
marshall & i meandered to the gym around noon. saturday at the gym is so dead. i love it. marshall was working out his legs and i had cardio on the schedule, so we went out separate ways.
i typically never run more than 3 miles when i do cardio. usually less. because i knew i would be at the gym for about an hour due to marshall’s lifting routine, i decided to set a goal to run 5 miles.
i don’t know about you, but 5 miles on the treadmill is booooo-ring. not all of us are like this girl who can last 20 miles on the treadmill (janae, you crazy.)
i am going to share my treadmill routine because i KNOW the treadmill is boring, and guess what? i didn’t get bored at ALL during this. it’s all about staying busy pressing buttons.
here it is:
|minute #||speed (MPH)||incline||rate|
|repeat 90 second run and 30 second sprint for a total of 10 sets|
|7-25||7 to 9||0||run/sprint|
i took a break right here at 30 minutes—i had to refill my water bottle! this was 3.38 miles. it was really fun to change the speed so often and it kept me entertained.
i had 1.62 to go. i hopped back on the treadmill and did the following routine at a 0 incline:
|minute #||speed (MPH)|
that 14 minute routine took me to the 5 mile mark in a total of 44 minutes. this is about a 9 minute mile, but i was constantly changing from running, sprinting, jogging and walking so it really wasn’t a steady pace at all. it was fun, exciting and full of fat burning intervals!
i came home and channeled my inner gliding calm with a snack plate for lunch.
it had everything!
cottage cheese & tuna fish with pickles for protein..
homemade hummus for dippage..
mary’s gone crackers caraway crackers for crunch!
marshall and i spent the greater part of the afternoon working on the house. we are slowly getting everything done.. i patched a bunch of spots on the walls and we need to paint a few areas.. slowly but surely!
these two were no help at all:
take a closer look at penny’s leg placement:
i don’t even know.
well, i have a busy night ahead of me! dinner with the girls and then marshall is meeting up with me so we can hang out at a few different friends’ houses. check ya later!
1. do you hate the treadmill or love it?
2. what did you have for lunch?
clearly those questions are super boring. what can ya do. later!
