A Whole Lot of Workout Recaps & Summer Food Goals

Hi everyone! I hope your week has gotten off to an awesome start. I was a little MIA this weekend living life so I have a few workout recaps to post.

Marathon training (I should say potential marathon training - I won't fully decide if I'm running the Full until I run 15-18 miles successfully) starts Monday, and I'll be running 5 days a week with one day of cross training, so I experimented with a similar workout schedule last week. My body isn't hating me yet, but I know my legs are looking forward to a rest day tomorrow.

Friday's workout was a short 3 mile run, but it gets hot quickly. It's amazing how hard 3 miles can feel...


On Saturday, I wanted to make sure I completed 6 miles, so I went to the treadmill. I don't care if it's cheating. I played with the incline and speed a little, but my goal was time - 1 happy hour. 


Over the weekend, I continued my summer food goal to consume as much local seafood as possible. My family orders food from Shore Fresh Seafood all the time, but I had never eaten there. I'm obviously very late to the game, because it was all awesome.


A couple friends and I also had Hoffman's for the first time this summer. The wait was over 30 minutes, but worth it...


Just B hanging with his two Aunts... 


On Sunday, I did a shorter Spin workout followed by some time in the weight room. I'll most likely be keeping my cross training sessions to 45 minutes throughout my training cycle to make sure I'm not pushing too hard. For me personally, cross training = lighter workouts... 


Another Blue Apron dinner success...


Have you ever eaten purple mashed potatoes?! They were delicious.


Monday morning's workout was another light 30 minute run. I'm learning that slow and steady makes it to the starting line of a race. Going all out on every workout leads to burnout. This was a light and easy outside run... 


And look what arrived! Have I mentioned I love racing? Almost 1 week till my last race of the summer...


How have your workouts been going? 

Who's crazy like me and racing in August?
