Happy Wednesday! ICYMI, this January, I went gluten-free, caffeine-free, alcohol-free, processed sugar-free, nut-free, and vegan all at once. Here’s what happened. Have you ever tried anything like this?
Last week’s fitness recap
Monday: Pop Physique (still loving it)
Tuesday: 2-mile morning run in Riverside Park. It was luxurious to do a hill-free run. Even if it was freezing.
Thursday: Barry’s Bootcamp (abs day!)
Sunday: NYRR GridIron 4-miler. I ran to the start (on the East Side) from 100 and Central Park West, so I probably covered about 4.5 miles total. This race was OKAY. I’m not in racing shape. I can’t seem to get strong and fast at the same time and I’ve been enjoying going to Barry’s and Pop Physique so my running has slacked. ‘tevs. Until the next race when I wish I was in better shape.
A few more things:
- I made these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies from Two Green Peas. They were so easy, healthy and tasted pretty delightful. Next time I might a a little nut butter into the dough. The banana flavor was a little too strong for me, and I think a tablespoon or so of almond butter would balance that.
- Comparing the same week in 2016 to 2017. ( I took ZERO rest days last year? What?)
- This diagram outlining proper running form and common mistakes is awesome.
How was your week? Did you race?
