Sticking to the Plan
Instead of hitting up happy hour last night, I stuck to my plan to go for a run directly after work and I’m so glad I did. I ran exactly 5 miles. I usually never run the exact mileage I’m aiming for, so for once, I hit my goal precisely. And my run felt good. Once I got into a good groove, I really felt like I could have gone much longer but I knew it wasn’t smart. Plus, it was getting late. Stats below…I swear I was moving faster than this but the app don’t lie. I didn’t follow my triathlon training plan for the night which was to bike for 30 minutes. I had planned to do it after my run but I ended up getting home a lot later than I anticipated and just didn’t have it in me to continue my workout. It happens. It’s week 1. Brushing it off…
When I got home, I made a quick dinner of a microwaved sweet potato topped with salsa (sensing a food theme here this week?) with a side of hummus and carrots. I also went back to an old favorite and microwaved some semi-sweet chocolate chips and proceeded to dip banana bites into the melted chocolate. Hello heavenly dessert! I of course took no pictures of any of this because I had to scarf it all down immediately.
I was kind of bummed there was no new TV on last night. I have no books to read right now. I need to download something to my Kindle before I head up to NYC this weekend. Any good book recommendations?
