This was a good weekend- as I posted the other day I was in DC with the family. I also clocked 42.5 miles running, and got a solid day of riding hills in Clifton…which was vicious! 40 miles in the hills was tougher than 60+ at the beach…it’s impossible to ride consistently at all because you’re constantly shifting and climbing. Great for training! Hopefully I will be some benefit in my upcoming triathlon this Sunday- Colonial Beach International Triathlon, right outside Fredericksburg, Virginia.
Had another hard workout tonight- after 3 hours in the car, it was definitely what I needed. 7 mile run in 46:05, so 6:35 minute miles which I was very pleased with. Followed this with an intense spin class…that turns out was 90 minutes, not just an hour! Nice!
Last week I took on a big challenge for myself. Everyday I was going to try and include a tablespoon (so 1 serving) of healthy oil- either omega-3s or coconut oil. I did ok! It was tough, and I only got 3.5 times, but I feel great right now and it didn’t kill me right?? I used Perfect Foods Omega-3 oil which is an awesome product full of Omega-3s from a lot of different sources. With this, I mixed it into my morning protein shake:
The other day, I made roasted sweet potatoes with the Coconut oil- wow these were good! I just sliced up a sweet potato into chip-size pieces and then rubber on 1 tablespoon of the oil and baked on foil for 20-30 minutes
This came out very crispy and had a fantastic flavor!
I highly suggest trying this..delicious and healthy? Nice, nice.
I also finished my current rotation at work on Friday, so the department got me a cake for us all the celebrate…thanks team!
Boston Creme Pie- one of my favorites.
So again, leave any questions about fitness, nutrition, health concerns, or triathlons as I’ll make sure to answer them for you! Stay tuned this week for a healthy Chimichanga recipe!
