Another training week is in the books. I can’t believe Chicago is less than 7 weeks away! As I predicted..I was a bit swamped returning to the office. By the time I caught up, it was already Friday! Here is how my week went:
Monday 8/17– 2 mile walk
Tuesday 8/18 – 2 mile walk
Wednesday 8/19 – 2 mile walk
Thursday 8/20 – 2 mile walk
Friday 8/21 – Rest day
Saturday 8/22– Quantico Sprint Triathlon – 750 meter swim, 20K bike, 5K run
Sunday 8/23 – 14 mile run @12:00 min/mile
Total: 25.1 miles (8 walk | 17.1 run )
I wish I was able to squeeze in one more 4-6 mile run, it probably would have helped with my jet lag. I am happy to report I finished both the Quantico Sprint Triathlon (recap to come) and my 14 miler this weekend.
750 meter swim in the Potomac River! I was in the yellow group (second wave) of swimmers.
20K or 12.4 miles (took me a little to convert…20K = 2 x 10Ks or 2 x 6.2).
Run #1: 5K @12:23 min/mile (12:27, 13:10, 11:56)
Body to Jennifer: “This is what you get for not including brick workouts” …but I finished!
Run #2: 14 miles @12:00 min/mile
I started a little late on Sunday and went to the gym for my long run. After each hour I took a mini break to stretch, drink water, or go to the bathroom.
I could not leave you without some food pics! Last Wednesday Cliff and I went to Central for their DC Restaurant Week special. We each had a cesar salad, fried chicken breast (omg omg so good), and I had peach melba for dessert (Cliff chose a chocolate cake).
On Friday, after packet pickup, we stopped by Filipino Kitchen for some dinner. This restaurant was on base (there is a sushi restaurant right across the street).
The food was good! We each ordered a combo which came with pancit (the noodles), lumpia (looks like a spring roll), rice, and an entree (I chose chicken afritada and Cliff chose chicken adobo). It was such a steal at $9.99/plate and I took more than half of it home.
How was your week?
Have you ever participated in a Restaurant Week deal?
Note: While I was on vacation I could not publish my training recaps in real time (sans internet for a little bit – it was spotty). They are live now if you were interested 🙂 If I am on your blog reader, then these posts probably just appeared the past few days. Enjoy!
