This whole week my workouts have felt a little off. Thanks to my digestive issues I have been purposely taking it slow for a while...and it has caught up with me. I feel like my running is harder than normal and I am putting in quite a lot of effort for a slower pace. That being said...I know how to fix that.
So simple, yet so effective. This week's workouts:
Monday: Rest day.
Tuesday: Ran 6 miles.
Wednesday: Ran 6 miles.
Thursday: Ran 8 miles, 20 minutes of strength.
Friday: Cycled 18 miles.
Saturday: Ran 10 miles, 45 minutes of yoga.
Sunday: 4.25 mile group run, 45 minutes of spin, 1 fast TM mile
Total Mileage: 35 running, 30 biking
I'm starting to feel like a weekend warrior with exercise! Since I set my own schedule, there's really no reason for me to cram it in on the weekends, but I still do.
Goals for next week: Work out and stuff. That's it. And have one long trail run with Tim of 12+ miles. And maybe make some more of this pizza.
Last night I celebrated the end of the weekend by making a barbecue chicken pizza from scratch. Ish. I feel bad saying "from scratch" because it's not like I was out there harvesting wheat, you know? I just bought a bag of pizza mix and added in water. But I still got to make dough and let it rise...
...stretch it into a pizza base and bake it....
...top it with tomato sauce, mozzarella, baked chicken (baked beforehand for 40 minutes at 350 in a mixture of olive oil, S&P and barbecue sauce) and diced tomatoes....
...and then bake and eat. Delicioso!
Do you tend to work out more on the weekend or during the week?
I prefer to take my rest days during the week (today is mine!) because I just feel like I have more time to workout during the weekend. Although a lazy Sunday of doing absolutely nothing is pretty nice every once in a while.
Do you make pizza or buy it? Favorite restaurant/frozen pizza?
I usually make it myself - either the dough like this (one bag = 50 cents) or I buy a base and just top it with whatever I want.
