Happy Sunday everyone. How are you guys doing today? I’m doing awesome, thank you very much. I have to say that my runs have been going pretty well the past few days. Before, my runs weren’t going that well.
The reason why is that I have been anemic the past half year. I didn’t even realize it until I got some blood work done. Yea, I noticed a few things but I thought it was due to over training. But, it was actually due to being anemic. My iron stores were close to zero. I started taking an iron supplement and I am starting to feel better. My runs have probably been improving since to increased oxygen carrying from the hemoglobin and iron.
Anyway, here are my meals and workouts for the week.
Sunday- 6 mile run + Jillian Michael’s DVD
Monday- 6 mile run
Tuesday- 6 mile run + strength
Wednesday- 1 mile walk
Thursday- 6 mile run + strength
Friday- 6 mile run
Breakfast: oatmeal +pb+chia seeds + fruit OR zhongzi
Lunch: leftovers from dinner or veggie burger w/ cheese and hummus
Snack: kashi granola bar/ Clif Bar/ VegaBar/Fruit + nuts
Dinner: brown rice, veggies, some sort of protein
I just want to make it clear that the meals are tentative and that I may change some of the meals and eat more snacks (especially due to my activity level!). This is just a general guideline I follow. I also love pizza, so I tend to eat that once a week.
What do you guys have planned for the week?
-My summer class starts on Tuesday!
