How To Train When You're Not Training

For the first time in a long time I do not have any races on the calendar…yet. I'm sure one will pop up, but as of right now, all that is scheduled is a Color Run in July. My body and brain are thanking me for the break.

After months of specific workouts, I am now doing whatever my body feels like doing. Since I'm in physical therapy, I'm also using this time to rest a little. I've been doing Barre3 everyday because I love it that much and walking lots as a different cross training activity. Walking is not running (duh), but you still burn calories and get in a nice workout if you do it briskly and long enough. And you also have time to look at the pretty sunset…


After a few lighter workout days, I needed an extra push today. I had physical therapy this morning, and it turns out all of the exercises I do in PT are the same as Barre3 - another reason I love Barre3 - so I didn't do a class and stuck to the Stairs and Elliptical for 20 minutes each... 


Finally a good sweat session...


I try to eat homemade food as often as I can, but every once in a while I need a quick option. The only microwaveable dinners I eat are Amy's. They are made with organic, real ingredients - no chemicals or words you cannot pronounce. I highly recommend for those nights you just do not feel like cooking…


And when you do feel like cooking yourself...

Easy-peasy shrimp stir fry: Shrimp, any veggies you want (the more the better), and a little soy sauce. You can add brown rice or quinoa if you'd like as well.


How do you train when you're not training? 

Favorite frozen dinner?
