Salad Yum & Couch to 5k
Is everyone cramming in the last of their holiday shopping today?! I most likely will be tomorrow. Why not put it off another day? 🙂
Last night ended up being a nice relaxing night. I actually went to training last night, which I never do on Fridays. But since I was unable to make it Thursday night because of the incident, I wanted to be sure to get 3 days in.
We had an awesome workout as always! For a Friday night, there were more people (6 of us) than I expected. We did 12 stations last night and did 2 rounds of 30 seconds at each station, and then took a minute break and then another 2 rounds of 30 seconds at each.
I left as a sweaty mess.
When I got home, Torrance had already eaten so I whipped up a quick salad.
In the mix was:
- mozzarella cheese
- balsamic vinaigrette
On the side are some pita chips and humus! Mmm.
Since I had somewhat of a lighter dinner (for me, I consider a salad light, even if it’s huge) I had some frozen yogurt with some cinnamon sprinkled in.
I dont really have a ton to do this weekend, which is a nice feeling. Just the typical “around the house” stuff – and like I mentioned, I will probably do some more Christmas cookies, just because!
Since my goals include incorporating some more cardio/running, I am going to get a run in this afternoon. I have to be honest, I have never really been a great runner but it is something I definitely want to improve on, so I am going to have to work toward it again. It seems like I’ve been having a hard time getting back into it.
I dont love running, but I do enjoy it and how I feel after doing it, and am convinced that if I can stick with it for while my love will grow. I am really going to try to get my endurance up. I find that since I havent run much at all for a while, I am having a hard time running consistently and I end up walking a lot more.
I decided that to help me out with this, I am going to do the classic “Couch to 5k” program to get me back into it.
May as well give it a shot – I feel like if I have a guide to follow I will stick with it, rather than just being all over the board.
Have a good Saturday!
- How did you get into running? Did you just step out and start doing it one day, or did you follow a program? Do it with a friend? etc.
- Do you love running? Hate it? Or just kinda like it/do it for the health benefits?
- Running outside or on a treadmill?
I like either, seems like I do better on a treadmill, I know it’s not the same.
