Day After The Long Run

Ok this is getting to be a little tiresome. 4:30am and I was wide awake again! Tomorrow I will get a shot of the exact time I wake up…just for proof that I don’t lie lol.

Black Coffee to the rescue and Blog reading. So glad I follow amazing blogs that keep me entertained in the wee hours 🙂

Just before 6am I headed out for my 5k Recovery Run. I managed to run up both hills today and my knee remained pain free. Good Sign!!! Well I was all smiles upon return from my run 🙂

Post Workout Brekkie: Chocolate Milk & Oatmeal topped with Yogurt & Goji Berries

I don’t have classes on Monday’s but I had a lot of emails to get through and some tedious readings to do.

Morning Snack: Carrot & Cucumber Sticks + Mixed Nuts

Lunch: Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Alfalfa Sprouts with BBQ Sauce + Blueberry, Muesli, Yogurt Parfait

Afternoon Workout: 45mins Stationary Bike (Intervals)

Post Workout: Chocolate Milk + Protein Shake (shot after they were consumed!)

Later that afternoon I made myself Banana Split Oats

Dinner: I sauteed an Onion, Zucchini & Carrot and added that to Baby Spinach, Alfalfa Sprouts, Tomatoes and a can of Salmon.

Of Course before the day ended I wrote up my Workout Plan for the week. I would be lost without this!

Monday: 5k Run/45mins Bike (Done)!

Tuesday: 2 x 45min sessions Stationary Bike

Wednesday: 5k Run + Light Weights

Thursday: 2 x 45min sessions Stationary Bike

Friday: 5k Run/45mins Bike

Saturday: Rest (Jog or Brisk Walk)

Sunday: Race Day 🙂

I still can’t do Hill Sprints and I’m not doing any Track Work this week. I don’t want to take any chances of further injuring my knee before Sunday. It will be better for me in the long run…plenty more races before the year ends 🙂

It’s The Beginning Of A New Week – What Are Your Goals?  I just want to try and remain pain free and have a good run on Sunday!

    Yummy looking eats! 🙂 Banana split oats sound awesome!

    My goals are to try some new recipes, get to bed earlier and to drink more water throughout the day 🙂

  2. Mmm banana split oats 🙂
    Your goal sounds great to me, staying pain free is of course essential! And my goal is to stay ahead of my homework and get necessary sleep

    It is SUCH a good idea to cut out those hills and track work outs, making sure you stay pain free!!! Also how do you prepare your Brussels sprouts?

    Black coffee and blog reading is how I’m starting off my day 🙂 Looks like an intense workout plan for the week; my goals this week: Finish unpacking/organising my new apartment and establish a job search routine 🙂

  5. Coffee + Blogs is an essential start to any day 😉
    Great run! Goal this week: move into my dorm!

    Oh my gosh those banana split oats look amazing!!
    I think Im going to have to try them.
    I find that if I wake up at 4:30 I decide its too early for me and usually attempt to go back to sleep haha. 5:30 is my usual wake up time.
    Do you usually have to nap in the day?

    Nice oats girl- glad you also had a good recovery run =)
    My goal for this week is to get some rest & keep up with the work!

    Can you believe I’ve never tried brussell sprouts- that needs to change!
    I love the idea of writing out your workout ahead of time. I always have it in my head but I bet writing it down would help me stick to it more!
