balancing act

 

Today I got up early and made a simple fruit/veggie bowl as breakfast.

Training

I grabbed a cup of coffee and headed to the gym around 7:30.  I warmed up with a brisk walk on the treadmill for about 10 minutes and then headed into the weight room and used the cybex machines to train my arms, core, back, legs, and hips.  I felt great, but exhausted when I left!

As a post training protein boost I made an omelette at home!

Super simple Omelette

  • 3-5 eggs
  • shredded veggies or protein

In an olive oil-sprayed skillet,  whisk eggs (3-5 depending on serving size).  Cook on low heat until firm, between 5-7 minutes.  Once firm, add veggies/protein, fold and after a minute flip. Cook another minute or so until done and serve with garnish or fruit!

On training and running

I’ve been thinking about running in a completely different way recently.  When I trained for my first marathon three years ago this was my motto:

“Sleep, run, eat, repeat”

These days I’m taking a more balanced approach with my body.  I need the strength training to balance out the endurance.  What a difference it makes.  The older I get, the more that is so important!

Hope you have a great weekend!
