Good Morning lovelies 🙂
I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. In some weird way this week has really flown by, especially considering I wasn’t exactly busy.
Ehh — I’m not complaining 🙂 I get to pick up Zach tonight and tomorrow’s Friday. That makes me one.happy.lady :).
Back track: Last Night
I made it to my happy place last night after work for a run :).
I’m sure I’ll get sick of the park and trails at some point, but I am LOVING it for the time being.
There was definitely a different crisp in the air than what I’ve had on any of my other runs, especially considering it was at 5 PM at night. . . but I wasn’t complaining. My lungs adjusted by lap two and in the end, I did a nice and easy 3 laps around the lake for a little under 4 miles.
As far as my ankle goes: it has been feeling much better each day — and the reason I ultimately decided to run yesterday was piece of mind. I absolutely took the run easy, didn’t even bring my garmin, but I wanted to test it out to make sure I’d be OK for the race next weekend. I could definitely feel the ankle in the beginning, but less than a half mile in, I got into a groove and it didn’t bug me at all.
When I got home from the run, I got straight to baking (yes, skipping a shower. Apparently that is ALSO a part of bachelorette life. Zach, you need to come home).
I am going to save the recipe for when Zach is home, so that we can let you know how it tastes. . . but I’ll give you a few sneak peaks because I definitely was baking with some things I have NEVER baked with before.
That’s right folks :). Fingers crossed it’s a good one! 🙂
While that baked, I roasted up a small head of broccoli and carrot in the oven, prepared some greens with salt, pepper and caesar dressing, and baked a sausage in the oven for dinner.
It was hearty, warm, and full of veggies and protein. Hit the spot.
Along with some chex mix of course. I’m still workin off that bag I got Monday 🙂
I got The Big Wedding from Redbox to watch last night, but to be honest it didn’t really keep my attention from the beginning. I spent most of the movie on the blogs and following the Tigers game on my computer.
And then I finished the rest of my red velvet cake and watched Food Network until it was time for bed :). Man I’m predictable 🙂
Since Thursdays are my late days, I woke up around 730 AM wide eyed and bushy tailed. I have definitely gotten plenty of good sleep this week, which my body is thankful for.
I fed the furballs and then went straight to the gym for an easy 5k.
Workout for the Day: Easy 5k on the treadmill
Nothing really notable about this one. Finished in about 29 minutes, never pushing it too hard. I’m hoping to get a long run in over the weekend, a recovery run, and then 2 short 5ks next week before heading to St. Louis. It’s getting real yall 🙂
And of course, now it’s time to finish getting ready and head to work. Thanks for checking in with me guys 🙂
Have a great morning!
