New snack alert!
I figured out a way to eat less Nutella and still enjoy it.
1/3 cup plain Greek Yogurt
1/2 T Nutella
Mix ’em together. Boom. Done. Add diced strawberries. Delish!
Wait. Side note.
Just wanted to give a special shout-out to my commenters yesterday. Thank you, Carla, from Foil-wrapped Runner! Carla, who also is marathon training, always leaves me a comment. Sometimes it’s great advice or reassurance, and sometimes it’s just something short and sweet. But it’s always appreciated.
And also Jess from Flying Feet in Faith–who just ran a marathon–thank you for your kind words on my post yesterday. Meant a lot!
End side note.
In other news…this is how I woke up this morning:
Sort of looks like a mug shot since I’m wearing incarceration orange.
Whatevs. I pulled that tangle of hair back into a
neat messy bun and got my ass to the gym for weights.
It was leg day. Or mostly leg day, I guess. Here’s what I did:
Well, the first thing I did was freak out when I got to the gym because I realized I’d finished the first 4 weeks of the Get Stronger Faster training plan, and I hadn’t printed out the next part of the plan. Doh!
But then I realized I should just do an extra week anyway because a) nobody cares and b) I was sick for a good part of the middle weeks of GSF training, and I could use a do-over week. After deciding on that, I did:
1. Barbell back squats 4×6 with 95#s
2A. DB walking lunges 4×8/8 with 20# dumbbells
2B. RKC plank 4×10 seconds
3. DB reverse Romanian deadlifts 4×15 with 20# dumbbells
I followed it with a metabolic circuit from Lift Weights Faster. It went down like this:
2 rounds, 30 seconds on, 30 seconds rest
Feet together hop over line
My stomach muscles are still sore from 5 rounds of 15 straight-leg sit ups on Monday, so those damn penguins killed.
All day long at work, one of the muscles in my torso kept spasming and make me wince. And then my co-workers went and made me laugh a bunch, which totally hurt. Jerks.
And then, like a big dummy, I went back to the gym after work because I wanted to do some ellipticalling or something sort of like running, but without the impact.
I did the elliptical for about 25 minutes and my legs were like EFF YOU LADY. Got in 1.9 miles, though, so it’s all good.
Then I ruined it with froyo. I’m not a healthy froyo eater. I get like 1/2 a cup of cookies and cream frozen yogurt and then pile on chopped up Oreos, mini Reese’s Pieces and like mini peanut butter chips and chocolate sprinkles. Ugh! It’s so good!
What do you put on your froyo? And don’t give me that I only do berries bullshit.
