The route builder is one of my favorite features on Strava! I usually have a route in mind, but if I want to double check the distance, I use this. I love Strava.
I was worn out from hot yoga, but wanted to get a run in. I drank some BCAAs and hit the pavement.
I'm glad I got my run in, but it hurt a little! My legs were dead from yoga and I had basically been sweating all morning, so running at noon was a little tough. But it felt good to run!
It was straight back home to make a smoothie. Can you have too much in a smoothie? Probably, but I don't care! This is my favorite smoothie ever. Yum.
I had forgotten how much I loved Nut-Thins. This flavor is SO good. I had some of those along with my huge smoothie. It was perfect for after a hot run.
My yummy smoothie and my all-time favorite socks. Feetures! are some of my favorite socks to run in. They stay put, are cushy, and come in super cute colors. What's not to love?? ; )
There was a squirrel in their yard...they stood like this for a solid 30 minutes. I was a mean Mom and wouldn't let them out to attack.
They eventually gave up and passed out. Lu isn't on the couch... ; )
Late afternoon snack: carrots and humus with Sriracha. Mmmm. And a hard-boiled egg with mustard. I love eggs. So much.
After I got home from my run, I worked on editing manuscripts until Jake got home. I really enjoy doing this, it's just slow going. I have a goal to get two more finished today, then I only have two left before we send them back to the authors to see if they accept our revisions. It has been such a great learning experience.
Lu was staying pretty close to my side yesterday. I think both pups were weirded out that I was home all day. I'm going to just assume that they LOVE it.
Jake got home and went for a run, so I started dinner. I experimented with artichokes. Has anyone else ever cooked these?? I just put lemon, garlic, balsamic vinegar, and black pepper on them. We liked them a lot, but I felt like there wasn't that much meat on the leaves. Maybe because they were smaller? I need to research these a little more. I'd love input from anyone!
i have been using cauliflower crumbles for a long time now to make fried rice, but I just found this and was pumped to try it!! Penny, Jake's Mom, had asked for the cauliflower rice recipe, but I sent her this, too, and they made it last night and LOVED it.
Veggie burger patties, artichokes, cauliflower fried rice - i added quinoa, and cherries. Mmmmm!
I topped my patty with Sriracha and was ready to chow down!
One of the views on my run this morning. I love that the sun is coming up earlier now - that's one of my favorite things about running early. I love watching the sun come up, even if it's a little cloudy.
I did a 4 mile tempo, followed by a mile cool-down. I was going to yoga after this and was a little sore from Tuesday's workouts.
Jake had finished his 15 miles (dang) and was waiting for me in the garage when I finished. Crazy hair and sooo sweaty. He looks cute. Typical! ; )
All. The. Eggs. (I made two more after this....) We go through a ton of eggs each week.
We got to eat breakfast together before Jake left for work. I LOVE not having to rush around in the mornings.
I got some major cuddles from our babies this morning. Lu likes to sit right behind me in chairs, she has done this since she was a puppy. It cracks me up!
We are going to a BBQ tonight at our friend Alex's, so I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there! I'm going to spend the day editing manuscripts. : )
Happy Hump Day!
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.
