A quick recap of my week before it’s off to spend time with friends and family. (Note: “quick recap” equals approximately 100 photos)
Workout (Tuesday): Crosstraining day, today I did some incline walking!
Cross training is my least favorite kind of exercise to do (give me running or strength training any day!) but I know I need to get much better at it. The workout room in my building has a recumbent bike and I’ve tried it, but it definitely gets boring and my upper body feels neglected by sitting on a chair. I only really had one goal and that was to do 25-30 minutes of work. I did a 5 minute warmup at 3 mph and then did two minute intervals at different inclines until I had completed 25 minute. Kept my pace between 3.5-3.7mph and my inclines were all over the place (something like 3.0, 9.0, 2.0, 10.0, etc). I got a good sweat in!
Wednesday: Came home and ran 2 miles outside before hanging out with two of my friends from home. Avg Pace 9:38.
That run was all about trying to hold a consistent pace. Pace consistency: eh. Weather and view of lake by home: gorgeous
Thursday: 30 minute interval ride on my parent’s stationary bike.
This was a cross-training day and definitely a sweat fest! I’ve realized if it’s not running I really like to get super sweaty when I do cardio. It’s the only way it feels worth it.
Delicious meals from the week!
Tuesday: Got dinner with a girlfriend from college and it was back to Del Seoul. This time I got the BBQ pork sandwich. Really good but I like the shrimp better.
And we split Kimchi fries. PHENOM.
(She officially has cancer that will be terminal one day, so understand that there will be 8475840 pictures of her every time I visit my parents.) Fun fact: I like to wear (but not work out in) my mom’s work out clothes when I’m home because she always has something new and adorable. Like that long sleeved top.
And a protein pancake, with some sunflower seeds and blueberries in the batter. Both a delicious addition to the texture!
(Pre-flip. That’s always when the massacre happens. Maybe I should make smaller pancakes. But probably not.)
And I may have topped it with peanut butter and nutella. What of it? I can’t always be healthy.
What plans have you got for the weekend?!
