Daily Happenings, Running, Workout

3 Miles + Stir Fry

Happy Thursday! I hope the day goes by quickly for everyone so that we can get closer to the weekend. Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day 🙂

After work yesterday I had 3 miles on the schedule. I felt really good during my run! Alex said that I didn’t look as exhausted as normal which makes me think I’m getting stronger. Or that I’m just used to running in the heat again but I prefer to go with the first option. I stayed in my pace range and without trying got slightly faster each mile which was great to see. When I got home, I showered and changed out of the sweaty clothes.

Once I had my pjs on (comfort always wins after workouts), I made my lunch for work. Dinner for the night was chicken stir fry with broccoli, an orange pepper and General Tso sauce plus brown rice. Before cooking the chicken, I seasoned it with sea salt, black pepper and garlic powder. I don’t typically like to eat take out Chinese food because it makes me feel bloated. That might be tmi but oh well, we’re all friends here! Since I don’t eat Chinese too much I forget how good it can be. Dinner definitely hit the spot last night.

Does anyone ever feel like your parents have more plans than you? I called my mom to wish her a happy belated birthday because she was flying back from Hawaii on her actual birthday. She told me she couldn’t talk because she was going to see a play with my aunt in Chicago. My plan for the night was to foam roll and read while she’s out on the town haha. Fun fact – one time my mom told me she would call me back and after two weeks, I gave in and called her. It became a running joke with my friends and I will occasionally give her a hard time about it to this day.

I grabbed my book and got all set up on the couch. By that I mean I filled my water bottle and put it next to me. As I was reading, I could feel my calves start to get tight almost so I grabbed the foam roller and gave my legs a good rolling. I’m not quite sure how I got through 4 years of cross country and track without one of these because use it 5-6 days a week now.

Alex was in the mood to watch a movie so we turned on Netflix and watched “Masterminds”. It’s a comedy based on one of the largest bank heists in United States history. This movie stars Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, and Owen Wilson among others. Sometimes I think comedies can be stupid jokes but not funny which was not the case with this movie. Multiple times Alex and I laughed out loud. If you are in the mood for a comedy, I recommend this one.

Question of the day: What do you like to put in stir fry? I love putting pineapple if I’m using a teriyaki sauce.

    1. Don’t get me wrong I love summer and the warm weather but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to wear layers and booties and do all of the fall activities.
      Thank you, enjoy your day Erinn!


  1. Nice job on your run!! I can’t wait to get back into running again soon!

    And omg I feel like my parents have so many more plans than me. Every time I call them they’re on some trip or at some concert or something exciting, haha.

    I love putting snow peas, garlic, and onion in my stir fries!


    1. Thanks! You’ll be back to running in no time.

      One time I called my dad with car problems when it was his car and he said he couldn’t talk because he was at a concert and to figure it out lol. It’s crazy how much cooler they are then me.

      I should’ve added garlic in mine, next time! Have a good day 🙂
