Hi guys! Last night Scott and I didn’t get home too late from SF class. We were able to bust out a quick walk with Rocky around the block and then on the couch and in our jammies shortly after 10pm. Not bad! I was a bit snacky and after going through many options in my head I decided on some popcorn.
We snacked and watched some TV. I felt slightly guilty about eating the popcorn. “I should be having fruit!” “This really isn’t such a proper snack.”
But you know what? It tasted good and hit the spot exactly like I expected it to. I don’t eat popcorn everyday or even that often really so eff it. I was quickly over myself and my popcorn guilt.
I got to bed around 11pm and decided not to set my alarm, just get up whenever. That ended up being 7:30ish and I woke up to rain. Aw crap. I completely forgot it was supposed to rain today. Boo I took care of Rocks and poured myself a cup of coffee.
I headed into the office to see what the world was doing today. Not too much except flipping their lids over some swine flu. I tried to catch up on my reader and do some office things. I walked into the kitchen for some water and discovered that the rain had stopped! I decided to take advantage of the situation and head out for a short run.
I woke up Scotts and then changed into running clothes and was out the door. I was a bit nervous during the run. It took my legs a while to get warmed up and took me a while before feeling comfortable. :o Um, not what I’m expecting to experience two days out from my race! I let it get to me for about a minute. “What if this turns out to be like Tuesday’s run which was utter crap?” “What if this is an indication about how I’m going to do Saturday?”
And then again, I forced myself to get over it. I was out for a run and to keep my legs fresh. After a while I got in a groove, my legs felt fine, and I was fine. I did 3.5 miles and felt awesome afterwards! I kept a good pace, sweated like a fool (I love sweating while working out!), and felt so much better for being able to get a short run in. Tomorrow rest day!
I had some CS and stretched. Then it started raining again so I made it just in time. Actually it was pouring rain, crazy. I changed into comfy clothes and made some breakfast because I was starving!
Oatbran with a little more coffee. The mix-ins were simple, crushed walnuts, coconut, and some cashew butter. So tasty! The light reflecting in my coffee is in the shape of a fishie!
Tonight is date night for us and we’re off to the ballet! They are doing an adaption of The Great Gatsby which is a book I love and very much need to reread. We have to leave here around 6ish. I want plenty of time to get there, take pictures, and listen to the pre-show talk.
Scott and I discussed our options and decided the best plan of attack was to have a late lunch/early dinner type of thing mid-afternoon. And that’s exactly what we did! Bistro type food this afternoon.
House salad with:
- Mixed greens
- Blueberry granola
- Pumpkin and sunflower seeds
Dressed with balsamic and oil.
Smoked salmon with chive cream cheese on pumpernickle toast, sprinkled with sea salt and dill.
Fruit and veggie smoothie made with:
- 1.5C unsweetened cranberry juice
- 1.5C of water
- Bunch of kale
- Small handful of spinach
- Frozen peaches
- Frozen pineapple
- Frozen blueberries and cranberries
I had two slices of smoked salmon on toast. A very delightful and light meal. I may have a small preshow snack, I’ll have to see how I’m feeling hungerwise later.
Now I’m off to get date pretty!
