For those of you that know me, it probably comes as no surprise that I am a bit of a control freak. I like to have things planned, I work well with a schedule, and I’m not always flexible. That’s not to say I’m not laid back — I can absolutely go with the flow once things are going, and I can make the best of many situations. But my overall tendency is absolutely Type-A all-the-way.
Well last night our plans for lasagna got washed. We had some last minute very important errands to run out in Boulder, so thankfully we were able to be flexible and have an impromptu, a little abnormal date night.
In the middle of our errands in Boulder, Zach and I made a stop at Fate Brewing Company for dinner and a nice cold drink to take the edge off :).
We got to Fate about 620 PM, and to our surprise there was a 30 minute wait. Boulder is a college town, and the students are off for break, not to mention we were eating with our senior citizen crowd. So when we heard there was a 30 minute wait, while we hadn’t PLANNED on waiting, we figured it had to be a good sign.
We sat at the bar and both got beers. I got a Chocolate Peppermint Stout that was AWESOME and unique, and Zach shockingly got an IPA ;).
There draft menu was quite impressive, with a lot of their own brews along with other local breweries. While their bartending service was subpar (we had 2 people come tell us they would help us, and then go help other crowds), the beer was delicious!
Right around 25 minutes later, we were seated and the service improved. We were quickly greated by our waitress, put in our orders, and our food was out promptly. I love it 🙂
I ordered the farmers market salad with brisket (when in Rome, right?) and it was DELICIOUS. The brisket was PERFECT, the snap peas, beats, cucumbers, pickles, everything…it was a great mix. And then with the stout dressing? YUM!
We were able to finish our errands and got back home to Denver a little after 9 PM. I apologize for my lack of posting, but we’re all about flexibility, right? By the time we got home, we were both pretty exhausted. Ate dessert (more cookies) and crashed.
Thanks to my early-to-bed time, I was able to get out of bed without TOO much problem this morning for a quick speed work out.
Workout of the Day: 4 miles speed work out
- 10 minute steady easy warm up
- 20 minute intervals: 1 minute @ 8 mph, 1 minute at 6 mph
- finish off the run steady until 4 miles right around 35 minutes
My brain was a bit foggy, but my legs felt good so I pushed out the constantly changing speed workout to keep it interesting. Thankfully, the run flew by.
Work time now, folks :). It should be a quiet day, lots of meetings but no clients. Love it! 🙂
Question of the Morning: Are you flexible, go with the flow type? Or do you prefer schedules/structure?
