Before I dive into today’s post I want to shed light on the tragic events that happened on September 11, 2001. Many lives were lost and lives were changed forever that day, and I can’t help but take a moment to recognize them today. We will never forget.
Hey Friends! Happy Friday 🙂
Good morning from Jake’s Brew Bar!
This morning I started my day with a class at The Ballet Physique and now I’m getting a little blog work done at this adorable coffee shop across the street before a meeting 🙂
I feel like it’s been forever since I have chatted with all of you, so I am happy that I can take the time to share some updates from the week with you!
This weekend, Brian and I don’t have a TON planned but we are going to a movie tonight and we are going hiking on Sunday. As for the rest, we will just have to wait and see!
I just have to start this “food” section out by letting you know that Wednesday I had an insatiable hunger…then yesterday I ran 18 miles so, I was also pretty darn hungry and well, today? Yep…hungry again! Ha!! When I have days like that I really try to eat lots of little meals rather than snacky foods. I put my mini meals on a plate and eat them sitting at the table and I make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. This helps me stay satiated a little longer 🙂
I have the chicken, veggies and rice all cooked up ahead of time.
I just toss them all in a pan with the spinach to warm it up and wilt the greens, toss it in a bowl and I’m good to go! So tasty and satisfying.
After a “taper” week last week, I had my longest run yet of 18 miles.
I definitely ran slower than usual, but I got the 18 miles DONE! I am still in disbelief that I ran for 3 hours. Today (the day after) I am feeling a little sore in my glutes, hips and hamstrings but that is to be expected. I plan on foam rolling, stretching and doing lots of walking to keep things feeling good.
Earlier in the week I did a quick 3 mile run and was happy to have a comfortable pace of around 8 minutes per mile.
After running for 3 hours, it’s amazing how SHORT 3 miles really feels!
Other workouts I did this week:
Just snoozing next to me while I study.
Sleeping under the bed in the guest room. So cute I can’t stand it!
This would look GREAT on Bernie!
Alright friends! That’s all for today 🙂
I hope you have a fantastic weekend and Friday 🙂
