Pushing it this week.

I decided that I was going to work ultra hard this week, and not take a ‘vacation’ type of week from exercise or eating.

So today I changed up the strength training, as I don’t want to do a heavy lower body workout on Wednesday, the day before my race.
Doing 4 sessions this week:
Today: Biceps, triceps, shoulders, back, chest.
Tomorrow: Hammies, glutes, quads, calves, abs.

Then do today’s workout on Wednesday, and the the other on Friday.

I ate clean today, on the lower end of calories (1300). I also jogged today. It was about 34 when I went out, but there was no wind – which makes all the difference in the world. I don’t know how fast I will be on Thursday, I really seem to run slower in the cold. You would think I would run faster to finish faster, but alas, that is not the case. Weather might be a bit clearer for Thursday, and not the rain/snow mix – yay!

When we went shopping the other day, I found the perfect candy for me. Eggnog candy corn! My 2 favorite flavors all rolled into one. I did ask to have that in my stocking this year. I just have to try it, but not til Christmas morning!

    I have such a hard time exercising in the cold. I’ll bundle up really good, but it’s hard not to breathe in that cold air. Kudos to you for being able to do it! πŸ™‚

    OMGosh, Lori…eggnog AND candy corn in the same package??? Be still my heart!

    Anyways, just came over to say Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! And thanks for sharing your recipes. I am making the ‘Cherry popovers’ (from you cottage cheese muffin recipe) for Thanksgiving breakfast.

    I remember reading a study before in runners world that said that 52 deg was the ideal temp for running. Anything warmer or colder would mean slower times. 34 maybe not as good as 50 deg.
    Who cares right?, you’ll run a 5K and feel good that you did, and not worry so much about what you eat on Turkey Day.
