I’ve Got A Good One For You

Good Morning and Happy ALMOST weekend everyone :).

Before I get to business — I want to start with the fun.

Date Night

I started off my evening last night with a good stretch session.

I busted out my new Core Power yoga mat last night for a quick full body yoga 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?

This Morning

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!

  1. Love sushi, and no, I don’t thin y’all were out of line at all, why couldn’t they have told you they couldn’t make the roll in the first place? At the very least they should have comped it…but I’m a huge wimp and probably wouldn’t have made a peep about it haha

  2. This is a great speed workout! I think I will try it this weekend! 🙂
    I love sushi and now after seeing your pictures will probably order it in for dinner tonight!

  3. Ugh yes, I would have been annoyed (but I doubt I would have said anything). If you’re forced to wait a long time and THEN find out they cannot make something, that’s poor service. Plus rudeness just pisses me off.
