Happy Tuesday! How was your Monday? Mine was pretty good. Have a great day 🙂
Monday started out nice and early with the usual 5:15am alarm. I’ll admit that I was much more inclined to lay in bed then to get up but I eventually got my booty out of bed. I showered and got ready for work. Alex kept out a cinnamon raisin bagel to eat with his eggs so I took half of it to eat with my egg. When we were buying the bagels, I thought they were plain cinnamon and didn’t realize it had raisins in it. The raisins were good and added a nice sweetness to it!
Work went by fast. I had some pictures to upload and sort through as well as travel to book so the morning flew by for me! It was quite rainy yesterday in the morning so I was obsessively checking the weather online to see if it would be raining during my run. Luckily it stopped around lunch so I was antsy during the afternoon just in case it started raining again.
Once work was over, I quickly headed home so that I could get my run in before dark. My workout was 6 x 600m with a 200m recovery after them. Overall the workout went great! Until the last two repeats. A woman at the park had on WAY too much perfume, I could smell her well before I would run by her. Yes I did wear shorts again but I had on calf socks and a long sleeve so I wasn’t that crazy!
When I got home, I stretched and foam rolled. My legs needed it. For some reason, my calves have been pretty tight the past few days even though I’ve been stretching them. I’m hoping the feeling goes away soon. To refuel me, I cut a big piece of pumpkin bread to enjoy (recipe will be up tomorrow morning).
Alex got home shortly after I showered so we chatted for a bit while getting our lunches ready for work. I totally forgot that Alex will be home tomorrow since he has a work event in Philadelphia at night and made him a sandwich. Oops! Now his lunch his already made. When that was cleaned up and lunches were put away, I started on dinner.
For dinner, I tried making baked chicken fingers. It worked out well! I used Italian bread crumbs and added a few spices to it kick the flavor up a bit. While the chicken baked in the oven, I made rice pilaf. I meant to make broccoli as well but forgot until I was putting dinner on plates. My bran was so off last night between that and the sandwich. Even without the broccoli, dinner was delicious. I put some barbecue sauce and hot sauce on my plate to dip the chicken into.
After dinner, I got comfy on the couch to write this blog post as well as the bread recipe. Once that was done, I read more of my book. I’m a over halfway through “Leaving Time” by Jodi Picoult. Once I’m done I will give final thoughts but I’m enjoying the story so far. I made some sleepytime tea to enjoy while I read. Does anyone else think this puts them to sleep? Maybe I don’t understand the point of it but it just kind of relaxes me instead of making my sleepy.
Question of the day: Did you workout yesterday? If so, let me know what it was!
