Once a week, Craig and I make it a point to have an early morning coffee date before work. It is by far my favorite morning of the week! 🙂
This morning we went to Kaladi Brothers Coffee and enjoyed some time together before the craziness of the work week starts.
The night before, I make sure to prep overnight oats for myself because it always ends up being a tight morning trying to get ready in time. Once I get back to our apartment after running, I usually only end up having half an hour to do some quick stretching, shower, and get ready. I guess that’s a perk of being a p.e. teacher—I can throw my wet hair in a ponytail and no one will even care.
Of course the overnight oats never look appetizing, but they are pretty decent. I still prefer them hot and made on the stove-top, but in a pinch, they are great!
old-fashioned oats + milk + plain yogurt + frozen, crushed strawberries + chia seeds + vanilla extract + agave nectar
I enjoyed this bowl with some peanut butter and a banana as well. 🙂
This morning’s run turned out to be a good one!
I started off with the intentions of running 7 miles and trying to incorporate as many hills into my route as I could. When I got to the hills, I would pick up the pace and run a little faster up each one to give my legs a good workout.
Part-way through I was feeling good and figured out I would have time to run an extra mile, so I ran a total of 8 miles this morning in 66 minutes! 🙂
This afternoon, I plan on going to the gym for some weight lifting.
I forgot to recap my mileage from this past week, so here it is:
Weekly Mileage + Workouts (4/4 – 4/10)
Monday: 7 miles + 45 minutes lifting weights
Tuesday: 5 miles
Wednesday: 8 miles + 90 minutes Hot Flow Fusion Yoga
Thursday: 5 miles
Friday: 4 miles + 30 minutes weight lifting
Saturday: 13 miles
Total: 42 miles
Enjoy your Monday. . . .hope it’s a good one!
