WEEK 14 TRAINING
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
MB side throws
In between rounds:
100 walking lunges
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.
Run in Rose Canyon
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
Friday: 6 mile Speed Work at UCSD
2.15 mile warm up (18:56, 8:48/mi)
4 x 800 meters with 400m recovery
1 mile cool down
800 splits: 3:33, 3:34, 3:29, 3:24
400 recovery average was 2:15
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!!
Dinner with Krissy, Quinoa Enchilada Bake (without the cheese)
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)
Stretching it out before the run
Route was along the beach
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.
Total: 19 miles
