Day After The Long RunPosted: September 12, 2011
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!
