Finally Friday

When I was writing the title of this entry, I actually typed "financially friday" first.  Bwhahaha!

Last night I went out with my two fave runner girls, Stephanie and Karen.
There the three of us are looking ridiculous, as usual at the color run last week. 

We planned this dinner when driving home from Louisville last Sunday morning, and I have spent the entire week looking forward to it.  Karen picked the place and we decided that off of the Kings Mills Rd exit was where to go.  Karen lives about 45 minutes North of me, and this exit is a good middle ground and it is pretty close to Steph (she lives between us, in Mason).  We all ate what we wanted for dinner, and I managed to stay within my calories for the day.  I quite pleased with that considering I drank some beers and ate a chicken wrap!

Columbus training for the day had crosstraining on the schedule, and I also needed to get in workout C of #bestbodybootcamp since I did not have time earlier in the week for that one. 

So the workout consisted of about 25 minutes of full body supersets and then I finished it up with 20 minutes on the elliptical.  I struggle with the strength moves that combine upper and lower body, to be honest.  I just feel like I can't figure out what weight it correct to challenge me on the lower body stuff, but not overdo it on upper body.  Does that make sense at all?  Meaning...  I can lunge with a heck of a lot more weight than I can use on a bicep curl, but I have to do both! 

I just read this article from men's health.  It is regarding the amount of food that Michael Phelps consumes to get his crazy swimming workouts solid.  If you will remember back to Beijing, he was eating around 12K calories per day and it would consist of things like an entire large pizza with a milkshake chaser.  The article talks about how he has switched to more whole foods and not just calories.  Its a good read!
