The second half of my week was jammed packed with physical activity. Wednesday was my rest day, but my building at work had yoga at lunch. I attended with my co-workers. It was more like bed yoga … relaxing, stretching yoga, but it got me away from my desk and moving in the middle of the day.
Thursday, I got up at 5:30am and went to the gym to complete day two in week four of the couch to 5k program Brisk five-minute warm up walk, then: Jog 3 minutes, Walk 90 seconds, Jog 5 minutes, Walk 2-1/2 minutes, Jog 3 minutes, Walk 90 seconds, Jog 5 minutes. I warmed down with my walk home from the gym. I wish I had the motivation to get up that early everyday … once it is over, I feel great for the rest of the day.
Saturday, I completed day three of week four in couch 2 5k. Then, my mom and I went to Terrain in Glen Mills for lunch. The food and atmosphere we perfect. We sat inside and shared the Quinoa Salad (spinach, olive, feta, olive oil and salmon) and the Heirloom Tomato and Peach Salad (burrata, arugula, white wine vinaigrette and shrimp). We completed our meal with Triple Berry Buttermilk Cake (lemon curd, vanilla bean buttercream). Way too much food, but worth it all!!
Post lunch, I went too burn some of it off with swim in my friend’s pool … it started raining shortly after I arrived, but it was fun while it lasted.
I didn’t cook or prepare or make any food for the week except for overnight oats. Instead, I finished off the weekend with a swim on Sunday afternoon followed by a long walk to hit my 10,000 steps on fitbit.
