We are so lucky.
(Anyone notice the new changes? How do you like em?)
I think I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again. I love Mondays, and today was no exception!
I got home from work last night and was SO tired. It was around 11:30, so instead of waking up at my normal 5:45 I set the alarm for 8:15. It was so worth it! I think I’ve finally caught up on all that sleep I lost!
Breakfast was the usual then I frittered for a while until it was time for my run with Linds.
While frittering I enjoyed multiple cups of this stuff…..
I used to HATE green tea, but now I actually really enjoy it. I honestly dont even know how many cups of this I drank today, haha.
Then it was time for my first training run for the SF Half! It was an easy 5k run, and the weather was PERFECT! It was sunny and warm out but the breeze from the ocean provided just enough of a chill factor so I didn’t overheat.
We finished in 28:51 with and average pace of 9:18. We were talking the whole time and it was so much fun! When we hit the 3 mile mark I was shocked at how fast time had gone by!
Honestly I probably could have picked up the pace a little, but it’s my friends first time ever running a race so we took it a little easy. That time is really close to my PR for a 5k, and it felt so easy! I’m getting better, yayyyyyy!
I tried to be sneaky a few times and pick up the pace, at one point she was like “heyyy are we running faster?” (Heh-heh….yes?) It was so much fun!
Seriously I can’t get over how beautiful today was. Linds made and great point during our run, the weather was perfect, we were running by the ocean, and she goes “we are so lucky”. I agreed, not everyone gets to run by such a beautiful place (or at all!), and sometimes I take advantage of that!
After my run I wasn’t ravenous (which was weird because it was 1 and I hadn’t eaten since breakfast), so I decided to make something that would take a little longer then 5 minutes to make. It took around 10, haha.
It’s a sad salad though, not enough veggies! I need to buy more.
Lettuce, Kale, Spinach, Black-Eyed-Peas, Avocado, Hummus, Salsa, Nooch, Grilled GF Tempeh, and some crunchy taco chips!
I made the chips by taking half a food for life brown rice tortilla, cutting it up, and putting some evoo (whatup, rachel ray), and sticking them in the broiler for 8 minutes until they were golden. So good!
My afternoon was filled with more frittering, homework, and blogging. Some also snackage as well. I had a bunch of baby carrots as well as more chips!
I had the other half of the tortilla with some salsa (with added cayenne pepper. I love my spicy.) In my opinion salsa>chips. I love salsa and could probably eat it out of the jar with a spoon. I wasn’t really a fan of this one though, I prefer chunky.
Now I’m off to take a bikram class, because I’ve got nothing better to do and I know if I do I’ll sleep like a baby tonight!
How was your Monday?
Do like salsa?
How many hours of sleep do you get?
