Happy Tuesday! Before we get to my 4 glorious, rainy miles let’s talk about some food from last night and today.
Dinner last night was delicious! Josh and I were invited over to his dad’s house where steak with Ina Garten’s (Barefoot Contessa) Basil Parmesan Mayo was on the menu. This meal is so decadent and beyond delicious. With it we had roasted potatoes, sautéed spinach, salad and some bread.
Breakfast this morning consisted of a comeback…A SMOOTHIE! This one had Strawberry Shakeology, frozen strawberries, a frozen banana, frozen blueberries and almond milk. (I was in too much of a rush to take a picture.) For lunch I was craving pizza so I made one as soon as I got home. It consisted of pesto, turkey, shredded cheese and grape tomatoes.
On the side I had a big salad with yogurt ranch dressing.
I’m not sure what dinner tonight will be. Josh and I were invited over to his house for Passover (<– note – I did not grow up in a Jewish household so I’m not entirely sure what this entails but I’ve been given some clues ) but Josh isn’t sure he’ll get off work in time. If we don’t go to his house my guess is we’ll have some kind of pesto chicken pasta…which I think is a no, no on Passover…but again, I have no clue.
Seriously…where is this sudden mileage coming from?!?! I couldn’t even fathom running three miles straight a week or so ago (and for the past 23 years) yet each time I run I add on a little more. I am beyond thrilled!!! Today’s forecast was rain all day long but I knew I wanted to go for a run since it was my half day. So, I just kind of went for it. It was sprinkling in the beginning, started to rain pretty heavily during the middle and then settled back into a sprinkle towards the end. It actually made my run easier because the rain kept my body cool. I got some weird looks from people driving by but that’s okay. I ran 4 miles at an 11:47 pace .
I was soaked from head to toe…but I couldn’t stop smiling.
I have cancelled my Beachbody Coaching. I really enjoyed coaching for the (short) time I did it but I simply don’t have the time anymore. I like to put my all into the things I commit to and I just couldn’t keep up. Maybe I’ll go back to it in the future but for now I needed to eliminate some of the extra activities that were filling up my schedule.
On a different note, today I got through 1 video lecture and 1 chapter of my AFAA Primary Group Exercise Certification course. It wasn’t much but it was something!
Question of the Day
Have you had positive or negative experiences running in the rain?
