And just like that, Livefit is complete.
The final workout of the program? 1 hour of cardio. I wanted to finish strong, so I decided to do the same thing I did last week. Run for an hour and see how far I get.
In 1 hour, I covered 6.4 miles – a little bit further than last week. I love improvements.
- mile 1: 9:29
- mile 2: 9:21
- mile 3: 9:08 (speedy here!)
- mile 4: 9:31
- mile 5: 9:33
- mile 6: 9:30
- .4 nubbin: 8:34 (finishing strong)
- average pace: 9:22
Wow. 12 weeks of hardcore workouts, and I am done. I don’t even know what to do with myself right now!
Because this program is so intense, My next plan is a deload week. Lots of stretching, yoga and walks for the next week (and y’know, moving, which is definitely a workout in itself). Nothing too intense, because my body desperately needs the break right now.
I’ll do a review of Phase 3 tomorrow, and a review of the program as a whole over the weekend. Overall I enjoyed it, but I definitely have some thoughts on the program and its overall effectiveness.
Considering that after my run and subsequent shower I was STILL red-faced, a smoothie breakfast was very much needed.
(Smoothies are best served in a beer glass. Duh).
Into the Magic Bullet went:
- 1/2 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- handful blueberries
- 1 scoop chocolate peanut butter protein powder.
Super thick, just the way I like it.
A deep chocolate vitatop on the side.
Love getting the ones with lots of chocolate chips.
And by on the side, I mean right after the picture was taken it was crumbled up and dropped into the smoothie. So good.
Quick review of Day 3 of Clean It Up Week:
- Pre-workout: small handful of trail mix
- Breakfast: protein pancake with fruit and PB2
- Lunch: sweet potato and black bean veggie enchilada
- Snacks: berries, crackers, 1 bite of a panzarotti (can’t say no to that) and guacamole tortilla chips (snack attack)
- Dinner: corn, peas, and some awesome Lake Erie trout
Still going strong!
Plans for the day involve more packing (of course) and a going-away dinner tonight. It’s the first time Eric’s extended family meets my extended family, so I think we’ve got an interesting night on our hands.
Have a wonderful day!
<—Did you get in a workout today? How was it?
<—Do you put toppings on your smoothies? I always feel like I need some crunch/chew with a smoothie, or else it won’t feel like a meal.
