Week 14 Boston Marathon Training

WEEK 14 TRAINING

Monday: Rest

Unfortunately, this day was filled with nothing but class and studying!

Tuesday: 5 mile run + HIIT at The Boxing Club
Run details: 5m, 41:46 (treadmill)

I normally hate running on the treadmill but for some reason I have been digging it! It’s convenient and easy to just hop on and knock out a few miles. 5 miles all at once is definitely my max on a treadmill, eventually I get tired of running in one spot and my body starts to hurt.

Exciting news…I was featured on The Boxing Club blog as one of the new trainers!! I absolutely love teaching HIIT and helping people get stronger and push limits!

Workout: 2 rounds of 90 sec work, 15 sec rest 
Seated battle ropes
Sled push
MB side throws
Ball slams
KB swings

In between rounds: 
100 walking lunges
50 squats
25 pushups

Post workout meal – if you followed me on snap you would’ve seen this first! @andreaarnold5

Wednesday: 5 mile run at Rose Canyon 
Run details: 5m, 39:18, 7:52/mi

I had an epic post workout breakfast this morning, Poached Egg Waffle Sandwich. I used the Greek Yogurt Pancake recipe to make the waffle (without the chocolate chips), poached egg, peppered jelly (from Trader Joes), and sliced avocado.

This breakfast had the perfect amount of carbs, fat, and protein.

Thursday: Rest

My little sister Krissy came to visit me for the weekend. She is vegan, so I was excited to take on the challenge and show her my skills in the kitchen. White Bean & Barley Salad was one of our first meals together and she loved it!! Recipe here.

Ingredients: Barley, arugula, white Beans, avocado, cucumber, parsley, red onions and homemade dressing

Homemade dressing: 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 3 diced garlic cloves, salt & pepper

4 x 800 meters with 400m recovery
1 mile cool down

Tonight was special for me, I was leading a Smoothie Demonstration at work and my sister was there to see it! I love teaching others about nutrition and helping them make healthier choices. I have another demo in July so if you live in SD you should come!!

Saturday: 5k in Santa Monica with Thrillist x Asics 

My sister and I took a trip up to Santa Monica to join Thrillist Run Club and Asics for a 5k. This was her first 5k in a couple years and she did it!! I was such a proud sister. We finished with an amazing breakfast from Fig and bottomless mimosas.

Breakfast before leaving for our 5k (oatmeal, almond butter, strawberries, chia seeds)

Sunday: Rest 

The whole entire weekend was jam packed and by Sunday my voice was scratchy and I was exhausted. I had planned on running 10 miles or so but that obviously didn’t happen. Sometimes rest is the best option.
