Hey all! Check it!
Oh yeah, two big honkin’ slices of chocolate zucchini bread and a glass of red while we watched an old movie (Fine Lady) which was really good! We tried watching more TV but I was falling asleep on the couch so I had to call it a night at 11pm. I crashed out in bed hardcore.
I got up at 7am this morning to get my day moving and groovin! No waiting for Scott to get up this morning, I had to have breakfast ASAP!
Oaty oats with two nectarines and some glorious coffee. So fine! I was stuffed to the gills though and couldn’t finish the Joe.
I have been busting around all day organizing this and that. Make lists, working on calendars and schedules and emails and everything.
I took a quick break to walk Rocky and while it was a bit warmer than yesterday, it was still a fantastic day outside. Once we got back home, I handled the laundry and put together some lunch.
- 1C carrot juice
- 1C US cranberry juice
- 1C Water
- Piece of fresh coconut
- Pineapple slices
- Frozen blueberries
- Frozen mango
Fabbo! The coconut did make it a bit gritty but manageable.
- Leftover hashbrowns
- 1/2 an Amy’s burrito
Mmmm that burrito was so warm and gooeylicious.
In the middle was some fruit:
- Strawberries (for Scott)
I think I picked a bad melon though and wow but bad melon encounters can ruin your day! The watermelon seems a bit mealy and not juicy sweet. It was a huge melon too! So now I don’t know what to do with it.
I know what you’re saying, “Andrea, where is your salad?!”
More moving and shaking around the office after lunch. I am in the ZONE! And it is flowing along nicely! I had some tea to keep me moving.
Walnut Crunch from TehKu, tastes delicious and gives me a little buzz to move along.
I was starved once again so I headed into the kitchen to stuff mah face! Scott was having leftover soup for dinner, so I decided to get my bidness on with some Hugh Jass!
Come to momma my pretty!
- Mixed Greens
- Chopped hard boiled egg
- Grape tomatoes
- Slivered almonds
With a mustard-balsamic combo on top.
In the middle was a plate with:
- Raincoast crisp crackers
- Slice of super sharp cheddar
- Egg 1/4 for Scott
- Vegan nuggets!!
Don’t get me wrong, I love me some salads at lunch time but those are just wee. And sometimes you need some Hugh Jass in your life to fill a void.
Can I get an amen?
This had all my fave components and I was one happy lady after dinner.
Alright friends, l have to break some news to you.
I think I’m pulling out of the 1/2 in a few weeks. Boooo! I’m so terribly bummed about this! My right hamstring is starting to bother me during the long runs. I do okay till I get to the end of 6 miles and then I can feel it getting tight on me. It doesn’t hurt but later that night and the following day it’s tight. Stretching helps but stretching won’t be enough to get me through 13 miles. Especially since at this point, each week my long run goes up a mile.
If I’m to be totally honest with myself, I don’t think my right ham will handle 7 miles this week. I can try and then stop if it seems like it’s getting to tight. But at this point, I really think that pulling out of the race is my best option. I don’t want to risk injury and be off running again for an entire month. That was killer! And having to start all over again at square one with my running stank. Been there, done that, have no intention of doing it again.
Plus I want to be able to run while I’m in San Fran! And I don’t want to be stuck on my hiney not running during the holidays. Running helps me cope with the winter (believe it or not!) and all that holiday yummer food.
Poops on me.
Where does that leave me? That means, I’m starting to train for the Cap City Half in May! I really liked this race a lot and the course is fantastic. Starting to train now for it, and I should be good to go come May!
