Everyone is HEALTHY this fine Monday. I sent Amara off to school in her brand new Justin Bieber shirt. Ha. Her tummy feels better, but she is just super tired. Matt feels better too (now). Miles and I are doing alright as well. I am still just waiting for my luck to run out (paranoid much??). I got an email today letting me know that my half marathon is in 1 week, come rain or come shine! Woohoo!
10 am spin today. I did 2 interval sets at 10 minutes apiece with a 1 minute recovery. The first 5 minutes was speed and the last 5 minutes was strength. The 3rd interval set was about 11.5 minutes and included extra strength and ended with a 30 second sprint. I think this class went over well. It was actually a lot harder than I originally thought after planning. I thought today’s class was going to end up a bit easier than normal (which was OK, I like to vary my level of difficulty…). Nope. It was hard. I might repeat it this Friday morning. My average HR was 155 and it peaked at 173 today. I kinda felt like throwing up ad of course thought it was me getting the Germies. I think I just pushed myself a bit too hard.
I had a great green smoothie breakfast: pumpkin, coconut milk, cinnamon, and spinach. Due to the pumpkin shortage I have been missing my thick smoothies! Since going Paleo I don’t use Greek yogurt in my smoothies anymore, so they are kind of liquidy. They are still good, but I like them thicker and since I won’t use a banana in them I have just been dealing with it. I found pumpkin at the grocery store after months. So what if the can is 29 oz ( over 1 pound of pumpkin in a can!) It will force me to use it everyday ( maybe 2x/day) before it goes bad! No complaints. Yum!
Totally Toned was at noon. It was a small group today, but that did not stop them from working hard! I think their arms were on fire, but it is tank top season!
I planned on taking a nap when I got home, but here it is 2:45 and I have to leave to pick the girl up from school in about 20 minutes.
Matt says he is fine to participate in Two Strong Training tonight, so I guess it’s on!
