In terms of mileage and workouts this week was much lighter than last week. Based on the recommendation of my trainer I gave my foot another week of rest from running and the elliptical (even though it never gave me pain). All my mileage through Friday was from walking.
On Saturday I had my first run in a week – 5 easy miles at the Surf ‘N’ Santa 5 Miler (soooo much fun by the way…recap coming tomorrow).
The course was flat and my foot felt fine (it usually flared up during hills or weight shifts). I did some jumping exercises that shifted my weight onto my right foot and it didn’t hurt, so that was a good sign. I decided to skip my 10 mile long run and resume long runs next weekend as long as the foot is okay.
On Wednesday I had a little bakefest with my friend Jenn. Here is her chocolate peppermint pretzel marshmallow fudge… it is SO good.
On Sunday I met up with my friends from b-school and had brunch at Macon followed by an afternoon barre class. Below was their take on the eggs benedict…not traditional…but still tasty.
I also finished decorating my tree and almost done with my holiday cards.
Today I am linking up with Tara at Running n’ Reading for her Weekend Update.
How was your weekend?
What have you been baking lately?
