Hi friends! How is your week so far? Mine started off fairly well because it was hot but not boiling or humid which was perfect for my speed workout. Have a great day 🙂
When my alarm went off yesterday morning, I was wide awake and ready to start the day. I absolutely love when that happens and for it to happen on a Monday is even better. For breakfast, I scrambled eggs and had an oatmeal muffin.
After work, I fed Bailey before heading out on my run. Even though it was hot, there was no humidity that I could feel so it made for a pretty great run. Once my mile warmup was complete, I had two 10 minute intervals at 7:50-8:00 pace with a 3 minute walking recovery in between. While hard, the weather didn’t make it impossible which I needed after the last few weeks. I ended the day at just about 4.75 miles which was perfect to start the week off with.
For dinner, I wasn’t that hungry so I grabbed some leftover black beans and put them in a quesadilla. Of course later I was still hungry so I took the two leftover meatballs that we had and heated those up. An interesting combination for sure but what can you do haha. You can’t always have a perfectly in balance meal where each part goes with the other.
I downloaded a new book that is fairly new so I was pretty surprised it was available to borrow on my Nook. The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen has an interesting summary online. It’s a novel where you assume you are reading about an ex-wife who is jealous of her replacement but you shouldn’t assume anything. Since I was reading in bed, I didn’t get too far into it but based on the prologue I think I’ll really enjoy this one.
P.S Make sure you check out yesterday’s post.
Question of the day: How is the weather by you?
