After my run yesterday, I chowed down on breakfast while lunch was cooking. After I worked for a little bit on my dissertation, I inhaled this! Chicken, sweet potato, and avocado. So. Good. And filling. I was stuffed after eating all of this.
Lu was passed out under our kitchen table...
I had a phone meeting in the late afternoon, then I was hungry again. An apple with peanut butter is one of my favorite snacks ever.
This is one of the pictures from the race last Saturday...it gave me a pretty good laugh! I think I was pretty focused on not curling up into a ball and laying on the grass because my legs hurt from all the hills.
For dinner, we had tilapia and veggies. This is some of my all-time favorite seafood seasoning. This company makes all kinds of spices - check them out!
YUM. I mixed together zucchini, summer squash, and asparagus and baked it all in the oven with some ghee, balsamic vinegar, and black pepper.
Dessert was a coconut popsicle for me and a Jack and Diet for Jake. We were both worn out last night. I was ready for bed at 7:30...
These are my weakness right now. I can't stop!
We watched some New Girl on Hulu and Jake loves the interactive ads. I'm not joking. I would rather watch the long ads because I can go do something in another room while I wait for the show to come back on, but not Jake. He likes the games in each little commercial...
Up when my alarm went off this morning - FINALLY. Got some good cuddles in with Lu before my run. I think she just really wanted to be fed...
Coffee and BCAAs...both definitely help with early morning runs.
Look who is back! For new readers, Jake completed a series of races in Leadville, CO this summer, the last of which was a 100 mile run. He took a month off to let his body heal, but he's been ready to start running again. He ran 6 this morning his first run back. I had a track workout and it absolutely kicked my butt. I did a 2 mile warm-up, 4x800 with a 400 recovery lap in-between, and a 2 mile cool-down. I ended with 7 miles for the day, but those 800s were brutal. I guess that's what happens when you don't do a track workout for over a month...gotta start somewhere!
Another egg and veggie scramble for breakfast!
I am doing computer stuff again today...I'm really ready to be finished with all of this. I will take a break in a little bit to do a leg circuit workout, so I'm looking forward to that. I NEED a routine again! I think it will help me stay focused.
I hope your Wednesday is wonderful!!
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
