Day 3: 5 easy miles this AM
When a run feels easy — the rest of the day can’t be bad.
Good Afternoon everyone 🙂 How’s hump day going for you? Does it help that we’re over the “hump” of the work day?
Just a few more hours and my crazy husband is back in town and the evenings spent with trashy TV, wine and good food are over ;). I know I didn’t mention to specifically that Zach had been traveling, but he was in Charlotte, NC for the beginning of the week.
Multiple people had expressed a bit of concern about me talking so openly here on the blog about being “home alone” with the hubby is away o n business, so I tried to keep it a little more hush hush this trip. For safety reasons, of course :).
We have a pretty laid back evening of sandwiches and catching up planned. My kinda night.
I was still left to my own single girl devises yesterday, which meant easy but DELICIOUS goodies and girly TV (Last night was Guilianna and Bill. I sweat I want to be their BFF).
I had a Taste of the Mediterranean meal from a local grocer that I’d had a few times before.
Just as good as I remembered 🙂
And last night I enjoyed my single girl meal with a nice glass of red…because I can.
Zach has been loving Carmenere’s lately and this was a cheap but good one! I also capped off the evening with another AMAZING Cookie Butter Cookie
Except last night I substituted half of the cookie butter for plain ol’ peanut butter. Believe it or not, I liked it even more. I also made it a little thicker than the previous night, which added a lot to the texture. Just keeps gettin’ better 🙂
All this must have been good fuel for me because I was able to get up and get an easy, but great run in this AM.
Workout of the Day
5 miles in 49 minutes, with a 3 minute warm up included (easy pace).
Tomorrow is my rest day and the legs were feeling very solid, so I decided to just keep moving. It’s been a little while since I’ve done a work-day-morning run over 4, but it worked out well this morning.
I’m really trying to be sure I remember to include these “easy” runs in the schedule, even though I’m not running back-to-back days anymore. Still important for those ol’ muscles!
Back to work folks 🙂
Question of the Afternoon: What culture has your favorite cuisine?
For me: it’s whatever I’m having that moment. True story.
Good Morning and Happy Wednesday/What I Ate Wednesday 🙂
As always, hosted by the beautiful Jenn at Peas and Crayons . I’m going to be honest with you guys — I’ve had some darn good eats this week if I do say so myself. Let’s start with some breakfast/brunch goodies.
Pigs in a Blanket with a side of fruit from LOLA’S in Denver. A weird order from this girl, but I was NOT complaining.
After a long ski morning Zach recommended a snack. While I initially protested, when this beauty of a plate of Spinach Artichoke dip arrived, I was made one.happy.lady. YUM.
Our “throw everything in the fridge” quesadillas that included marinated tuna, mushrooms, peppers and cheese. YUM.
Lots of veggies for a stir fry
With lamb shank of course
And last night’s St Patties Day sushi
With a side of Guinness 🙂
And my sweet highlight of the week. Oatmeal Cookie Butter Cookie!
Like I said, it’s been a good week of eats for this lady! 🙂
Question of the Morning: What was your eat highlight this week?
