Incorporating cross-training

After breakfast, I headed to the gym for some cross-training.  I wanted to run, but I am considering a last-minute half marathon on Saturday so I wanted to play it safe.

Today’s workout:

30 minutes on the elliptical – level 12

15 minutes on the rower – 3131 meters


15 minutes on the stair climber


(below workout x 2)

10 moving push-ups

15 burpees

30 crunches

15 tricep dips

60 second plank


Tomorrow’s workout will be yoga so that I will be rested if I lose my mind decide to run the half on Saturday.

Tonight’s dinner menu:

turkey burgers (the smoke detector went off during the cooking of these)

sweet potatoes and spinach

salad with romaine, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, and avocado with raspberry vinaigrette


and my dad ate every bite…he is finally eating his vegetables!

What do you think?

Do you take rest/cross-training days?

Do your parents/spouse eat as healthy as you do?
