Ran 7.39 miles on the treadmill- After a mile warm up I did 4 x 400 repeats at a 6:31 pace with .25 mile recovery in between sets. Not that you care, but it was tough for me to try to get motivated for a little speed work, but once it was done I was really glad I did it. I haven’t ran fast in awhile and am trying to fit some harder runs back in.
Then I ran a little over a mile with these two hoodlums.
They were begging for a little jogging lap and a ride to the “John Deer” playground so they could play in the “spider web”. They got exactly what they wanted.
I had a few shoe changes along the way. Some slippers to the gym,
my Wave Musha 4 shoes for the treadmill
and then Elixir 7 shoes for the stroller jog.
I totally have to change my shoes depending on how far or where I’m running.
We started out the day yesterday trying to get some more green food back in the boys’ meals. I made them some mean green French toast. (Note- I use regular eggs and regular sugar in the recipe when making it for the boys.)
It looked and smelled so good I made myself some too.
Something about warm breakfast with syrup in the morning is just so great, isn’t it?
I know I said I wasn’t going to show you any more sweet roasted kabocha squash pictures, but I just have to show you yesterday’s masterpiece. My excuse is because it also had a roasted apple and sweet spaghetti squash on there. Trying to change it up you know.
Before all the toppings.
After all the toppings.
I used the rest of the roasted spaghetti squash for dinner with a ginormous fish taco bowl.
I had a little trouble choosing what hot sauce and salsa to use so ended up using a little of almost each one of these.
Ha ha ha. That’s not even all of the ones from the fridge.
I still need to figure out how to suck up to a local sushi joint to get my hands on some fresh wasabi, but for now I’ve got a few things I’m super excited about.
I found this trail mix at Trader Joe’s the other night.
It should be good on a salad or something, right?
And, um, my friend Jessica not only sent me some Starbucks coffee, but she sent me this little chocolate wasabi gem too.
I can’t wait to dig into it.
I also found this wasabi mustard recently at our local market.
I used it on a Morning Star veggie burger salad
and on some not that exciting tuna wraps with my leftover Swiss chard.
I’m not sure how much I like it just yet.
Speaking of green, I got my Pro Compression February socks of the month along with a new pair of pink argyles in the mail.
Ha ha ha.
Okay, I gotta run. Off to teach boot camp and then a little family trip to the Women’s Half Marathon expo. That should be fun for everyone. Ha.
Um and yeah, I’m a little green with envy too because STUFT Daddy is still sound asleep in bed this morning.
Anyone have any races or big weekend plans?
