Can I Get a Chicken Breast and a Side of Plank?
I ran in beautiful White Plains, NY after my luggage arrived in the cover of darkness. I only did about 15 minutes in the crisp air, mostly because I really needed the sleep. It was great and I was a little bummed that I didn't get to do a longer run upon arrival, but that just couldn't be helped.
However, I was really good on the eating healthy, which is quite a challenge there. Our training facility has a huge buffet with tons of choices, healthy to pretty bad and loads of desserts. And every breakout is loaded with food. That is always a big challenge for me because all the skinny's seem to be able to pig out. I just can't do that. Luck of the genes. Or maybe they are better the rest of the time than I am, and just splurge when they travel?
Anyway, this was my best eating training trip in recent memory and I felt pretty good about that. Also, since I only did the 15 minutes in the am, I worked out HARD that night. Hard enough to be light-headed after and super sore today. I did a Fat Burner on the treadmill and several abs, lunges and push-ups. I'm gettting pretty good at the regular planks, but the side ones just kill me. Everything hurts and tells me I haven't been doing enough of the PT exercises.
I'm home now and put the running clothes on. I hope to do some hills and go see PT guy again. I thought surely I would be down in weight at least a couple pounds but I was 158. :P YUCK. I think I probably just offset the eating holiday we just had as I'm not sure I actually weighed right before I left. At least it is a step in the right direction
Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Don't forget, next weekend is EIGHT ON THE EIGHTH. Everyone is invited to run 8 miles with all your closest and not so closest running friends. You pick the route, the starting time, and anything else you want, then post a race report and send me a link to the report!
