I made it back to the gym this morning, I had planned to run 5 miles… But I thought it would be a good idea to do some lifting too. While I’ve done quite a bit of upper body lifting, the lower body has been non-existent.. I haven’t really figured out the balance between training for a race, lifting, and teaching. As a result, I’ve skipped out on my strength training quite a bit.
I did sets of squats, split squats, deadlifts, and single leg-deadlifts.. then headed to the treadmill.. after 10 minutes, I was bored and really not feeling the run.. So I thought I would run some sprints.. yeah that didn’t really work either.. in all I was on the treadmill for 20 minutes.
I came home ready for a banana bread GF pancake, but I was out of bananas… after scrounging around the cabinets I found some unsweetened applesauce- I figured it would work the same
Some errands were on the agenda. Before I knew it I was hungry again. We are in desperate need of a grocery trip.. but I was able to dig up a bag of edamame out of the depths of the freezer and green beans along with some un-pictured rice
Not the most exciting meal- But it did the trick.
I did some office work, made soup for dinner, and taught yoga.
