Monday, Monday

by Meghann on January 30, 2012

Happy Monday!

Catching up from the weekend?


‘Twas an epic weekend. πŸ˜‰

How was yours?

I was in bed early last night and up early this morning for my morning gym session. Twenty minutes on the treadmill followed by NROLFW 6B – my typical Monday for ya. I tried to incorporate some speedwork on the treadmill with 2:00 intervals at 8.5 mixed with 1:00 minute recoveries at 6.5 just to mix it up a little bit.

It ended up looking something like this –

  • 3 min Warm-up @ 6.5
  • 2 min Speed Interval @ 8.5
  • 1min Recover @ 6.5   
  • (repeat intervals x 5)
  • 2 min cool down

It was a good mix of up and downs that left me sweating and breathing hard at the end. Always a bonus feeling when coming off the treadmill. πŸ™‚

Breakfast was enjoyed at home.


Nothing too out of the ordinary here. I started with a plain greek yogurt base and topped it with a golden delicious apple, PB2, and Kashi Cinnamon Go Lean Crisp.




Ahhh…. for such a simple post, this took way too long to write. I would like to punch the spinning pinwheel of color in the face, please. Thank goodness my new memory chips arrived over the weekend. Here’s hoping my lunch post goes a bit faster. Blah.

the spinning beach ball of doom has plagued me lately as well. Time for more memory.

Sorry if I missed it, but what did the numbers indicate on the back of the shirts? They were such cute pieces of ‘team’ apparel!!

That Kashi Go Lean Crisp looks awesome. I haven’t had the chance to try it yet but I love how clustery it looks!

Glad you had such a good weekend!

I like your treadmill work out! I love speed intervals and am always looking for new ones! I have never heard of the Go Lean Crisp, but I am intrigued since Go Lean Crunch is my fav!

Very impressed you were able to hop on the treadmill for a speed workout monday morning after a bachelorette party weekend! That would never happen for me.

I think intervals are the best way to break up a treadmill run. Plus you’re running faster so that your time on the treadmill is shorter. Win win πŸ™‚

Such a simple breakfast but that looks really delicious. I think it’s the apple. I think I’m craving one. I think I’ll fix that this afternoon. πŸ˜‰
