Oh no not another frigging MoFo smoothie post! Wait! Before you go, it's not just any smoothie. Because, well, because I made it!
Oh well... they still left.
Besides I haven't made any smoothies so far during MoFo and it's Training Tuesday. Nutrient packed smoothies are good for training, but you knew that.
I've been working out this week, but differently than I have been in previous weeks. My running mileage has suffered at the hands of MoFo. I miss running, and so does Psycho Boy. He likes running after me. Sometimes he likes running after me with a sharp object. So lots of time my training regimen is for mere survival. Please don't try the running with sharp objects at home.
Right here, right now me and Psycho Boy pledge to be recommitted. I mean to recommit to our running agenda.
Last week, I ran 4 miles and tacked on 3 miles walking, and walked another day.
I did strength training and core ball with sit ups and a little cardio on 3 days. I actually played tennis with my friend Liz one day. We drilled and did court sprints - something called running the lines, and had a really good workout and a lot of fun. Running the lines is a great exercise for anybody, not just tennis players and I intend to video how to do it and share it with you next Training Tuesday. Still I really miss the running. Here is my workout plan for MoFo month. I have to stay realisitic or at least make an attempt to be realistic. Reality can be a stretch for me.
Run 16-20 miles a week with a three mile walk tacked on each run.
Core ball and strength training 3-4 days a week.
Tennis 1 day with hitting drills, ( and running drills).
100 sit ups daily
75 jumping jacks daily
Two Different Smoothies for Two Different People Because One is a Big Baby.
Made in the same blender
16 ounces of frozen strawberries
1 large ripe banana
1C soy yogurt
16 oz cold almond milk
2 T ground flaxseed
2 T agave and 1 packet stevia (my "go to" sweeteners)
Blend until thick and creamy, pour 1/2 into one glass.
Add a handful of spinach to liquid remaining in blender.
Pour into the glass that is not the big baby glass.
How is your exercise program going this week? Have you made any changes during MoFo?
