Good Morning and Happy ALMOST weekend everyone :).
Before I get to business — I want to start with the fun.
I started off my evening last night with a good stretch session.
Let’s just leave it at my body thanked me. And as far as the mat goes, it actually worked really well. It is a thin, sticky mat, but it worked PERFECTLY for my yoga session last night. I have a thick LuluLemon mat, and it doesn’t work well when I’m not sweating. I had no slipping or moving problems with this mat last night. 2 thumbs up!
We have been on a roll lately of making Wednesday night our date night (thank you last start Thursdays), and that continued last night. We picked up sushi from Sushi Sasa and headed to our favorite spot, Denver Brew Co.
We had a little snafu with the sushi though. . . we waited 30 minutes before we headed there to make sure it was ready, then were told that they couldn’t make one of our sushi rolls. They offered to make another, but it would take the time to prepare. We choose another and waited, but were a little surprised when they were a little rude overall and charged us after waiting for the NEW roll. Are we totally off? Would anyone have expected to wait the extra time and pay for the roll? Be honest 🙂
Unfortunately, dinner wasn’t pretty as it was all in plastic containers and kind of smashed around . . . but here’s an old picture of very similar rolls…
Either way the sushi was delicious 🙂
We spent our evening playing Yatzee and planning out our honeymoon just a short 9 days away!!! GETTING EXCITED!
The evening ended with some of my newest obsession to perfectly end the evening.
At least I portioned it out and didn’t eat them straight from the bag . . . progress right?
The pretzels and sushi must have been great running fuel because I had a GREAT run this morning.
Workout of the Day: 5.61 speed miles
I don’t remember who’s blog I saw a very similar workout on (if it’s you, please let me know in the comments and I’ll name you!), but this speed workout this morning smoked my legs and lungs in the best possible way.
- 10 minute warm up easy run pace
- 1 minute 4.0
- 1 minute 8.0
- 1 minute 9.0
- repeat 10 minutes
- 10 minute cool down easy run pace
WOOOOF those were some speedy intervals. . . but the 4.0 intervals gave my legs JUST enough time to reboot and get ready for the next set of sprints.
I HIGHLY recommend this run for anyone wanting to work on speed (I did my easy run yesterday, don’t forget :), and feel free to change the speeds to whatever works best for you. It’s a challenging, but manageable run.
Have a great Thursday everyone!
