It’s been a solid training week since last post–a lot of high quality workouts in some good weight lifting sessions too! That being said, my body told me today was a recovery day, so I have a some time to catch up here…and hopefully write some on www.triathletefood.com which I have been neglecting to do!
On Saturday I got a 62-mile bike ride in with a 4 mile run after. Then I drove up to DC to surprise my little sister because she was actually home for a day- she got a day off from the Eating disorder clinic. It was also my little brothers birthday, so I was the “good brother” this weekend. The ride was really early so that I could get home as early as possible. I tried to eat well, but not knowing what I would get to eat back at home, I definitely restricted a little bit. I got all my carbs and protein, but avoided any fat. I have an apple, protein shake, and Marshmallow fluff sandwich (no peanut butter…what was I thinking??) I had in the fridge so I could grab it quick and eat in the car, but at some point my roommate moved it…
It made for a messy drive haha. On Sunday, I had planned to do the same workout I did last weekend when I was in DC- a triathlon on my own, but when I woke up Sunday, I weighed the options between the workout and more sleep…the latter won out. My plan, then, was to drive back to Norfolk and workout here- but I forgot the gym closed at eight! This made the whole drive very uncomfortable because I had definitely planned to get something in that day. However, I was able to get to the gym 32 minutes before closing and bang out a 5 mile run!
After this I came home and made some Honey Mustard chicken. Very, very easy…mix honey with mustard, slather on the chicken and bake. Delicious!
Here are some pictures from another day last week:
Here is also my attempt at the omelet I have failed at multiple times now. If I’m having eggs, I really want to enjoy the yolk, hence I like my eggs over easy. So when I make my omelets, I try to make most of it with Egg Beaters, then add the eggs on top late in the game and let them sort of poach on top. However, I always overcook the yolk which is worse than just scrambling them in like a normal omelet. Oh well, haha
And served with some baked sweet potato and butternut squash fries
I think this time the omelet sort of ended up working!
It was good. For anyone interested, here is the workout I did yesterday that was a lot more brutal than expected!
4x 1.55 mile run (10 minutes) with 10 minutes hard on the bike between sets
