Last Friday, I wrapped up my first week of work at my new job.
Also on last Friday, I suddenly realized I was about to wrap up my first week of spring marathon training.
Because of the aforementioned new gig, I managed to only make it out for two very short (and very slow) runs during the week.
But I have very high hopes for this week, including some clean eating (like the recipe below) and nailing each of my workouts.
Good thing I skipped going to the gym last night…Whoops.
