I was so excited when I noticed about a month and a half ago that I was getting faster. A few weeks prior I started a strength training routine. I had read that strength training makes you faster and I did think about that but, as with anything else for me, it didn't hold much weight. After all, a theory is just that a theory......and I'm hard headed. I need to experience things for myself before I believe it. Now, I am back running the same mileage but my times are super slow. Why? Ding, ding, ding!!!! I haven't done any strength work in over a month. I now have the motivation for strength training I didn't have before. Yay!!
Lululemon - Westport. Every Lululemon store has free community events like yoga. Check out your local store calendar for more information. This week mine is going to have a running lecture. Can't wait to get new information.
Today was also cooking day. I made fresh strawberry sauce for the banana "ice cream" I am going to make once the bananas are frozen. For breakfast this week I baked egg whites, loaded with veggies (basically I used the egg whites to hold the veggies together) . It is going to be so yummy topped with pico de gallo. I also picked up a whole watermelon. I hope we eat it all before it goes bad.
It's been a good weekend. Busy with work and domestic chores but that's ok. Next weekend is fun weekend with my boy!
What did you do to be active this weekend? Do you cook on the weekend for the week ahead?
Next blog we will discuss "Clean Eating". Until then, Happy Running!
