How to be Better

It’s only Tuesday, but so far I’m sticking to my goals, that’s the first…
Remember when I admitted to being a bad housewife – well here is me being a good housewife…

Last night I finally made a successful  dinner at a decent hour. I found this crock pot recipe via Pinterest, stuffed chicken with feta and bacon. It was delicious, MMR even gave it two thumbs up.
I have also been diligent this week with my workouts. I have to squeeze them in since it’s race time in T-11 days. Yesterday I actually did some cross training and I’m not talking 20 minutes weight class, I mean really cross training. My workout looked like this:
  • 30 minutes cardio – elliptical hill climb 
  • 30 minutes weights – I used my Nike Trainer app and did these crazy hard (crazy hard because I have noodle arms) exercises.

Here’s my gym OOTD : ) I do my cross training in my old Mizuno running shoes. I didn’t put very miles in them, I switched to a lighter shoe and couldn’t let these go to waste.

Today I did my speed work:
  • 5 Minute warm up
  • Mile 1 9:58
  • Mile 2 9:49
  • Mile 3 9:30
  • Mile 4 8:43 – sprints – :20 fast, 2:00 recover
  • 5 minute cool down
I also did a quick 15 minutes of strength training to shake out my arms they were a little sore today. My running times, have never happened ever, ever. I am SLOW, but today I pushed it to the limit. I have some big running plans and goals in the next couple months, which focus on running times like this.

I’m working on the self thumbs up selfie for you guys.

As I was leaving I noticed that my gym is giving everything away – free month’s, free tanning, clothes, babies, you know raffle prizes; one of the contests is a football pick each week. You write down your picks and the person who has the most right wins some prizes. I did it the first week and did really well up until Sunday night, then it seamed everyone I picked started loosing. Hopefully this week I have better luck.

Now I’m off to clean up and go to bed. I have to get up early and do some reading from the 16th century. Here’s reason 83439 I love Idaho:
