2018 – Fitness Friday 2

Happy Sunday everyone! How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. The weather here the past week was perfect. It was unusually warm for Spring but it was really nice. It went up to the mid 70s. It was great! Unfortunately, we do need rain so it did cut into our rainfall.

So, anyway, enough about that. Here were my workouts last week.

Fitness Friday 2-9-18

I ran the 5k with mi novio on Sunday. It was the SuperBowl run in our area. The weather was perfect! Plus, we got beers after (well, I did. The novio doesn’t drink so I drank his). Since I stayed with him the entire time and it was his first 5k, I didn’t get a PR. 41:17 was the time.

Yesterday, I went to the Waffle Experience with my friends yesterday and it was delicious! Who knew that a waffle burger would taste so good. It’s called “We Found the Beef”.

Well, that’s it for now!

How were your workouts the past week? 

Have you tried a waffle burger before?

2017 – Fitness Friday 8 + Shamrock 5k

Happy Saturday everyone! I am so happy because this week’s weather has been perfect! And the weather was perfect for my 5k run today, the Shamrock Run! Considering that I broke my foot in September, I am pretty happy with my time of 31:02. That is about a 10 min mile pace. The funny thing is that I also used my RunKeeper app and it gave me a 9:46 pace.

Anyway, here were my workouts this week.

After my 5k Run:

So, I have to say, the run was pretty good! The weather was perfect and it warmed up just in time that I didn’t need my running jacket that I brought with me. My legs did feel like jello during the run because I did squats last night (115 lbs) but I managed to run the entire time.

The run started off by leaving Raley Field and crossing the bridge. It was such a pretty view, especially since the river is full from all the rain we had this season. The run went through downtown and then back to Raley Field. It was a great 5k run, which I ran the entire time. After running the 5k, I felt like I could have gone longer and did the 10k. Oh well, next time. I enjoyed a beer after the run. Happy Almost Saint Patrick’s Day!

I know that drinking a beer after a run is not the smartest idea, since it does slow down recovery. It is better to eat food, with a ratio of 3:1 carbohydrates to protein.

How were your workouts this week?

What is your idea of a perfect run?

 

2017- Fitness Friday 4 (on a Sunday)

Happy Sunday everyone. How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. My 5k training has been harder than I expected! The thing is that, I will have to change my plan because I plan on running a 10k a couple weeks after my 5k. So, I will post my updated plan later.

Anyway, here were my workouts last week.

I tried running outside yesterday for the first time since I broke my foot and boy,was it hard! It’s so much easier running on the treadmill. I will have to incorporate outside runs  more often when weather permits. The only thing that I do not like about running on a treadmill in the gym is that it gets hot really easily.

Well, that is it for now!

How were your workouts last week? 

Do you have anything new planned for this week? 

My 5 K Training Plan

Happy Sunday everyone! It is almost 10 pm as I am typing this. However, I wanted to get my 5k plan posted before the end of the day. I may adjust it as time goes on.

I can’t believe that it’s been such a long time since I ran. I used to run half marathons and now, I have to train for a 5K. It makes me feel a little sad. Please be careful about not breaking any bones, everyone. It really sets you back on your fitness!

Anyway, I am also trying to incorporate my weight training along with running. We’ll see how that goes. I actually bought a blender/shaker bottle so that I can make my protein shakes for my after workout snack (when lifting). Sure, it is better to eat real food after working out. However, sometimes, people don’t have time. Other times, some people can’t really each much after working out. Protein helps aid in recovery after working out.

So, that is it for now. My Weekly Meals and Workouts post will be up tomorrow!

So, what is your plan for the week?

Do you run any races? Spartan, 10ks,etc?
