But I ended up going against the afternoon’s votes and hitting the treadmill this afternoon.
The 91 degrees at 5 PM were enough to know that I wouldn’t hit the mileage I was hoping for, at least not safely or happily. So — I got over it myself, sucked it up, and hit the treadmill.
Workout of the Day: Treadmill 10K
- First 5k right under 30 minutes, steady 6.1-6.5 run
- Second 5k in 27:40, with one mile at 7.1 on the tread, the rest varying speeds based on my boredom
Honestly — this was one of the easiest runs I’ve had all season. . . minus some tummy problems between the 5k’s. Seriously, that’s two runs in a row. . . what’s up with that? I’ve never had an issue with it before . . . any ideas?
Zach also went on a long bike ride this afternoon — so needless to say we were hungry kiddos.
On the menu tonight: Carne Tacos
Yup — we ate mexican last night, but both stayed away from tacos so we could enjoy them tonight. Zach even had left over mexican for lunch today — it never gets old in this household.
Grilled Green Peppers
Grilled corn tortillas
And of course, delicious carne arsada
And my only addition to the table tonight: A simple homemade pico
- 3/4 can of Rotell Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies
- 1/8 yellow onion raw
- 1 clove of garlic raw
- 1 leaf of kale diced
- 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil
- 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
- 1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese
It was a delicious and fresh topper to some great tacos
All together now!
Question of the Night: Do you consider treadmill runs “cheating?”
I try and push the speed or intervals to make it feel like I’m NOT cheating to be completely honest. . .
