This morning got started with running a slooooow 5 miles.
I was very tired and sore from lifting and my speed workouts yesterday.
8 miles + 30 minutes of weight lifting in the morning
3 miles in the afternoon: 1 mile warm-up + 8 x 200 meters + 1 mile cool-down
I broke the eight 200s into two sets and rested one minute between each repetition. And then in-between the two sets, I rested for 3 minutes. It is an awesome workout for maintaining some speed in your legs!
I loved feelin’ the burn and knowing I pushed myself to the max, which will in turn make me stronger!
Thursday morning = coffee date with my husband = the best day of the week 😀
Kaladi Brothers Coffee = the best coffee in town
We always pack our breakfasts and eat them at the coffee shop while enjoying our drip coffees.
Tropical Mango Overnight Oats
I think these signs of succulent strawberries and mouth-water mangos means summer is on its way! And that makes me very happy! 🙂
I also had an Oatmeal Raisin Banana Muffin. I crave carbs after running! (I usually have at least a couple servings.)
The muffins were mighty delicious and even my husband (who isn’t always crazy about my healthified muffins) totally dug these!
I was worried that since they didn’t have any oil in them, they would be too dry, but I think the banana really gave them the moisture they needed!
It was a clear, sunny today, so I took my p.e. classes outside for some ultimate Frisbee—one of my favorite games!
Most of the kids enjoyed it, but some thought it was lame. I have learned that if someone doesn’t like an activity, it is often because they aren’t good/successful at it.
For me, that would be disc golf/Frisbee golf/frolfing (Frisbee + golf)—whatever you want to call it. Just ask my husband!
I am not a fan because the first time I played, I was awful, and since I am a perfectionist, that did not sit well with me! While I have gotten better, I still am quite horrible at it.
When Craig isn’t home for dinner, I get lazy about making a substantial dinner. I usually end up finding something that is quick and easy and requires minimal effort—tonight: cereal.
Straight out of the box, this cereal definitely has a cardboard taste to it, but tonight I discovered that if I let it sit in my milk for a while, it softens up a bit and the taste of the cardboard disappears—always a good thing.
After I discovered this, I really do like the cereal and love how crunchy and light it is. Sometimes I’m in the mood for a light cereal, sometimes I want some bulk to my cereal and something that will fill me up!
Don’t worry, I definitely had more for supper than just a bowl of cereal: carrot sticks, mango, peanut butter, and ice cream were definitely consumed tonight as well.
Time to rest a little bit and get excited because tomorrow’s Friday!! 🙂
