A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy Monday! Are you excited for this week?! I sure am. Well mostly today. Because we have our wedding tasting!! Wedding planning hasn’t been the most fun for me, but this I can’t get down with. Having a good meal at a wedding and a bomb wedding cakes makes me so so happy. Hate to break it to you, but if I went to your wedding and you didn’t have a wedding cake, I wasn’t too happy.
I talked about this briefly in my Instagram post this weekend, but how do you feel about carbs? I’ve learned over the past 2 years just how important carbs are for women’s health, especially if you are are active and doing endurance and high intensity workouts (CrossFit and HIIT training). After adding more and more carbs to my diet, not only do I feel better in training and in my daily life, my body composition has improved and I sleep better.
After my runs feeling just okay that past 2 weeks, I added two refeed days (more carbs then normal) each week. One before my long run and one the day of my long run. And my run last week felt great!! My energy felt good pretty much the whole time and at the end I didn’t feel exhausted. Definitely excited to see what the next few weeks bring after feeling this good.
