Workouts & A New RecipePosted: December 14, 2011
Hope everyone is having a great week so far. Less then 2 weeks to go till Christmas!
I finally started Christmas shopping for my family, still have a few more things to purchase. But at least I started!
I haven’t been able to go for a run this week at all so far. I’ve strained the ligament in my other heel now…I honestly have the worst luck. So whilst my left heel is healing nicely the other one is out of action. I changed my workout schedule so that the only run I would be doing is this Saturday. My club is having a Christmas Party and they are hosting a 5k fun run. For this run you have to estimate what time you think you’ll complete the run in. You can’t run with a watch and the person who run’s closest to their estimate wins a prize. Their will also be various other games like sack races, egg & spoon, tug-of-war & best costume 🙂
So my workouts on the bike this week have been as follows:
Monday: 15min warm up, 30sec Sprints x5 with 30secs easy in between, 15mins easy (I did this twice), Stabilization
Tuesday: 2 x 45mins of Intervals, Stabilization
Wednesday: Same as Monday + Light Weights Shoulder Press 15 reps x2, Side Raise 15reps x2, Bicep Curls 20reps x3
I plan on going for a swim later this evening to do some laps + Kick boarding.
Some of my eats:
I did some baking this afternoon. These muffins are easy to prepare and nutritious 🙂
