Today was a decent day. Nothing amazing, but not bad.
- Breakfast – the standard kashi/fage 0%/honey/brown sugar mix. Still delicious! (and still low on groceries!)
- Lunch – leftover spaghetti from last night (pre-run carbs)
- Dinner – Angela’s Speed It Up Spinach and Chickpeas. We both loved it! Definitely a “make again” recipe.
- Dessert – a honeycrisp apple with some of the frozen PB banana dip. The rest of the dip I ate as ice cream with a little hot fudge. AMAZINGNESS!!!
Today was the day we FINALLY cleaned all the empty beer bottles out of the basement and took them to be recycled…
229 bottles! I promise I don’t live in a frat house. These have been building up since July 2009.
We also got to take the dogs for a walk around our neighborhood. My husband’s knee is healing well! He had his ACL repaired in early January, and today he was fine walking 2 miles with me and the dogs at a pretty decent clip! I’m so glad he finally got that done.
I did get my run in today, although it wasn’t quite as much as I had hoped. I only got halfway (8.5 miles). Everything was achy and It was a generally unenjoyable run. Not awful, but I wanted to stop before the discomfort in my knees turned into searing pain. I’m proud of myself for getting my run in, but a little disappointed that I only got 8.5 miles done. In hindsight, I probably shouldn’t have done the speedwork yesterday. I know you shouldn’t do two hard workouts in a row, but I was kind of dumb about the planning.
Now I’m cuddling with the dogs on the couch. A great way to end the night…
