Pasta two nights in a row
(with amazing bruchetta)
Red Wine Two Nights In a Row
And you know what, I’m kind of OK with it.
12 miles or bust in the morning.
Who’s with me?
It’s that time again 🙂 Time for my round up and Friday Favorites of the Week!
I’d have to say My Treadmill 10k to be honest
I really wanted it to be outdoors — but the Colorado heat wasn’t on my side that day. Either way, it felt very easy in comparison to other runs lately and I ended feeling very strong. Always an awesome feeling 🙂
My surprise find of the week: Starburst Candy Corn! Hello Halloween candy season!! My favorite time of year 🙂
My favorite eats of the week were probably our Double Date night at La Loma , but our Mexican night at home put up a GOOD fight.
My parents shared some exciting news with me this week — and that is probably the moment that stands out most for me. Unfortunately, I have to be vague about it for the time being — but everyone send positive and happy vibes their way for me, OK? 🙂
And of course: I wouldn’t leave you all without some highlights from the week of eats.
Pretty spectacular eats if I do say so myself 🙂 Anyone drooling yet?
And finally — Five Friday Favorites
And that my friends, is my Friday round up.
Question of the Afternoon: One word highlight or favorite from this week 🙂
rest Friday 🙂
I woke up this morning feeling really well rested and excited for the weekend. Since Wednesday, I’ve been able to sleep in until 730, which is an hour and a half more than normal. Let me tell you, three days of extra sleep have made this lady one-happy-girl :).
Speaking of strong lady here — (forced transition there? 🙂 Overall I’d say I’m very happy with how much workouts went this week. Here was my plan for the week from Monday:
Workout Plan for the Week – September 23, 2013
And here is how the week turned out
italics are still planned workouts for tomorrow and Sunday.
Since today is my rest day, and I know I tend to get restless on those days (is there a pun there?) I have made a fun game for myself. Every hour, as close to the hour as I can make it around clients, I am going to do
It’s nothing much, but it’s a fun way to get out my build up energy on a rest day 🙂
Quote for the day:
I may not be there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday.
I LOVE this quote, specifically with my running and healthy journey in general. I have written about it before, but I am someone who has constantly compared myself to others with running. Whether it be speed or distance. This quote is a great reminder to me that I am on my OWN journey. While I may never be the fastest runner or maybe I’ll never run an ultra — everyday that I lace up my shoes, I’m a stronger runner than I was the previous day. And that’s pretty cool 🙂
Question of the Day: What have you guys thought of the quotes this week?
Any journey that you’re on right now that feels like a daily struggle?
