Hi friends! How was your Monday? I hope it was a good one. Mine felt packed which is always good. Have a great day 🙂
When my alarm went off yesterday morning, it was in the perfect stage of sleep since I felt ready to get up and go. That feeling on a Monday is amazing in my opinion. After getting ready for work and hanging out with Bailey, Alex and I made breakfast. I made scrambled eggs and toast with some peanut butter and chia seeds on it. So delicious!
Work was interesting because it felt like the day flew by until about the last hour and then time moved slow. Once I left, I let Bailey out and got ready for my run. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how the run would go. It was a speed workout (12 x 400m) and I wasn’t sure what my body would think about it. It felt amazing to get out and push myself, even thought it was hot, since I didn’t run at all last week except for 4 moderate miles on Saturday morning. I ended with 8 miles total with a 9:29 average pace.
Alex got home from his run shortly after I had finished foam rolling so we hung out with Bailey and chatted about our day before showering. For dinner, I thre my leftover pasta from Saturday night into the oven. The cream part of the pesto cream sauce almost disappeared because it was basically just pesto on the noodles and chicken but I love pesto so I didn’t mind. I topped it with a little parmesean cheese before digging in.
Once I finished dinner, my Nook was finally charged enough to download a new book. I read about 5 pages of The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes. The speed workout in the heat seemed to really take it out of me because I fell asleep on the couch around 9. Poor Alex tried to wake me up a few times to get me to move to bed but I kept saying I was too comfortable on the couch. Eventually I did make it into bed though and passed out hard.
Question of the day: What was your workout for yesterday?
