BeachBody Challenge Day47

I’m really tired right now so I’m going to make this shorter than my usual.

This Week's Long Run

Turbo Fire Rest Day – Long Run – 8.5 miles. I don’t do bootycall workouts on my long run day. I save up all my energy for my run. Today’s run went well. My legs got a little tired at 6.5 miles but I didn’t slow down too much.  Worn out afterwards, but did Day 21 of MadAbs March – 40 sec. side plank, 42 crunches and 34 pushups. Yep. Still doing regular pushups :-)

66 Degrees and Sunshine w/ a few clouds = Shorts!

Stretching after my long run. Yep - Ran w/ a tank top too :-)

My Favorites: My Asics Running Shoes and Chocolate Zico.

Meals –

M1: Egg white, tomato and spinach omelet. So thrilled that it came out perfect :-) Also had Whole Wheat Toast w/ almond butter, banana and sprinkled w/ cinnamon.

Finally made a perfect omelet!!

M2: Luna bar.

M3: Couldn’t decide what I wanted – just took a bunch of left overs and made a mix: brown rice, seafood quinoa and veggies, and black beans.

Leftovers: brown rice, Seafood/quinoa/veggie mix, and black beans.

M4: Larabar

M5: Salmon and Broccoli.

Lean and Green.

60 oz. of water. Zico during my run and Chocolate Zico after my run.

BeachBody Challenge Day40

Turbo Fire Rest Day 

This month of Turbo Fire is focused on Cardio so there aren’t any HIIT workouts – besides the ones I do separately from Turbo. Without the HIIT workouts, my Turbo Fire workouts are longer  45 min to an hour so it was nice to have a break from it today. Of course, it didn’t mean I had a day off.

Rain all day long, all week long.

My Longest Run so far.

Today was my Long run day.  I was just going an extra .25 miles every week but I decided to go for 8 miles today instead of 7.75 miles. It’s been raining non stop the last couple days.  I had hoped that there would be a little break from the rain, but I wasn’t lucky this time around.  It was rainy and windy my entire run, but I was surprised that it didn’t slow me down that much. I had a jacket with my hood on over my hat, but at the end you couldn’t tell. I was soaked except for my back. It felt great that I didn’t allow the rain to be an excuse for me. I really am working on Not making excuses and just Doing what I need to in order to reach my goals :-)

After 8 miles in the rain :-)

My jacket was zipped up during my run but my shirt got soaked anyways :-/

I usually take it easy after my run, but today I felt really good afterwards so I decided to do an afternoon workout.  I did get a half hour nap in after doing homework with Gio but I think that was more because of the rainy weather and less because I was tired.  I wanted to get back to doing booty workouts on Wednesdays. I haven’t been able to do what I like to because I switched my running schedule around. I need to find a way to get my Stair Circuit back into my routine. Yes, I miss running stairs. Lol.

I went with two NTC workouts. I really like Lea Michele’s Triple Threat workout. The Single Leg Lift with row is killer on my legs – especially since they were a little worn out from running. I could really feel this in my glutes today. I followed it with the Butt Buster workout.  Lots of lunges!  I was going to do another workout but I remembered that I hadn’t done my Mad Abs for Day 14. The side plank and crunches aren’t too bad for me yet, but the pushups are getting tougher. Today it was 23. I was able to do all of them on my feet :-) I know it’s suppose to be a workout for my abs, but my arms are the ones dying. I ended with a 5 minute plank.

1 min high plank, 1 min side plank (each side), 1 mean high plank, 1 min low plank

Meals:

M1: Cinnamon Apple Raisin with Unsweetened almond milk, Raw Almond Butter, Chia Seeds, and fresh cut apple slices.

Fresh apples made this very tasty :-)

M2: Luna Bar – pre run fuel :-)

M3: Wanted to get rid of some leftovers. Brown Rice, left over tofu mix, peas, and corn.

Brown Rice Tofu Veggie Bowl

M4: Larabar

M5: Turkey Meatballs and Broccoli. Also had the last of the peas and corn.

Lean and Green :-)

Had a Zico during my run and a Chocolate Zico after my run.

80 oz. of water.
