We had parmesan zucchini & corn and garlic mashed potatoes on the side. I wish I could take credit for inventing these, but I’m just not that creative. Links to the recipes are below.

Today was a cross train day so I decided to focus on my upper body since I have been neglecting my arms lately. Lots of push up, curls, tricep dips & extensions. I was pretty happy with this week since I was battling a cold and didn’t think I would be able to run much at all, but my goal next week is do over 20 miles. Also, I’m in desperate need of speed workouts! I haven’t done any speed workouts since I started training, so I’m going to try to get out to the track at least once next week.
