Vacation finished last Monday, and even if school for the girls doesn’t start until Sept. 1st, things are slowly getting back to a sense of normal. Work was a bit slow, so it allowed me to do a lot of cooking and focus on getting back into some kind of fitness routine.
Here is how the week went down :
- Monday : 6,5 km with some speed work. I can already tell that the days are getting shorter.
- Tuesday : 6 km
- Wednesday : One hour full body workout @ home
- Thursday : Off
- Friday : 20 minute lower body workout and planking, and then the cat wanted to join in
- Saturday : Off
- Sunday : 25km run /walk. It was perfect weather and I was happy to be back in my usual stomping ground. My run was supposed to be longer but my NYC marathon training plan is a bit off because of my vacation. I didn’t want to over do.
Indeed, my achilles was a little finicky all week, with the speed work + squats. It doesn’t hurt but just doesn’t feel 100% great. I went out to run and saw this guy who was dressed like it was winter (and its 60 degrees WTH ?). When I looked at him he was wearing compression sleeves and I was like holy crap, why didnt I think of that ? A little compression would probably help my achilles stay tight while running. So I turned around and went home to slip on my compression socks. Win.
I went really slow on my run and iced my lower leg several times Sunday. I was pretty happy with the idea I found, using the ice bag that we use to keep wine cool. I just slid it over my foot and it molded great to my lower leg. Feels pretty good, but we will see Monday !
I was happy to load up on unprocessed, whole foods :
I spent some time getting the house back in order, doing windows, washing curtains and decluttering. I am traveling this week for work, so I like to leave things in tip top shape for my husband when I go.
And that’s a wrap.
Tell me one thing about your week ! Any favorite recipes or meals to share ?
