I was dreading it so I crawled back in bed to hear my husband say that I should at least do something?? What!? Boy this upset me so I got up and did P90X back and biceps. Then when he finally woke I told him that I was burnt out and really needed a week off from running.
It was settled... I was taking the week off and only doing workout videos. As the day progressed I kept thinking about running. It was interfering with my work thoughts. It was driving me nuts!! Needless to say by the time 6:30 rolled around I was out the door doing my tempo run. It looks like the aftermath of Irene is going to hit this weekend so that means no camping. Which means back to my 20 miler on Saturday.
So in the end I didn't end up taking the week off. I guess as much as I would like to sometimes, when I am in training I just can't seem to relax.
This is the breakdown...
6 miles with 5 miles at 7:50
Mile 1 - 8:51
Mile 2 - 7:41
Mile 3 - 7:47
Mile 4 - 7:49
Mile 5 - 7:52
Mile 6 - 7:27
Done and Done!
I know I look super cool here with my socks and all but I had this set up going on for a shoot so I thought I would capture myself after my run.
Breakfast for dinner I say..
My version of a "healthy egg sandwich" although there is still bacon and cheese so I wouldn't say it is that healthy. But I cook the bacon in the microwave on this tray that allows all the grease to drip off and makes it super crispy. I love it.
Whole Wheat English Muffins
Scrambled Eggs with Cheddar and Mozzerella mixed in.
Salt and Pepper and Done!
Simple, fast and delish!
These are my most favorite English Muffins EVER!
Please don't be grossed out! I just wanted to show you how much grease comes off!
I did Tracy Anderson on Monday and will be doing something tomorrow I don't know what yet. Insanity was supposed to come today and it didn't. Totally lame so I am not sure what I will do. Thursday will be my track workout, Friday maybe Tracy again and Saturday will be the dreaded 20 miler at 8:45 pace.
In other crazy news an EARTHQUAKE was felt in NYC yesterday. I was working in my studio when I realized things were shaking. At first I was like.. "What are they doing to this building?" And then I realized no this was definitely something else. It was small and thankfully everything was ok and no one was hurt but then it got me to thinking about what if..... and I don't even want to go there because it just freaks me out!
Do you ever take a week off??
