This post is going to be short, sweet and to the point. I am running on a little less than three hours of sleep and I am almost positive that anything I write will not make much sense. However, I am going to be MIA for the next few days and wanted to get one last post in before the big holiday weekend. I am super excited to have a three day weekend. Hopefully, I can find some time to sneak in a nap or two. That sounds just dreamy!
My workout this morning was tough! I am not even going to pretend that I felt strong during my tempo run. Honestly, I wanted to climb off of the treadmill and curl up in a ball on the floor and go to sleep. I was determined to at least try to complete this run though and I am happy to say that I finished almost all of it. I cut out the last six minutes of a 70 minute tempo run so I finished with 9 miles in 64 minutes. This was definitely not my best run ever but I will take it! After my run I did a quick weight workout. I focused on biceps, chest and legs and I can already feel the DOMS setting in...actually, I am not sure that is possible but I am anticipating soreness! Does that count? After a few minutes stretching and rolling around on the floor with a big piece of foam, I called it a day and hit the showers. Oh yeah, and for the record, I was able to get in a quick bike ride last night before dinner. I did a quick 15 miles around my neighborhood and had a pretty good time. I decided to call it a night when some loser in a pickup truck drove by and threw his soda bottle full of dip spit at me. I mean really, was that necessary!? Some people!
Dinner last night was a super simple, throw together type of dish. I decided to try and recreate a healthier version of Hamburger Helper for my junk food loving husband and what we ended up with was tasty but not quite right.
This is something I am going to have to keep working on so for now there is no recipe to post. On the side we had a great veggie mixture that I found at Trader Joe's called Harvest Hodgepodge.
This is such a yummy mixture of an unusual combination of veggies and it wasn't very expensive either. Score!
Alright folks, I said it would be short and I would hate to be a liar so I am signing out. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend! Be back to chat soon!
