Today was rainy and overcast…a nice break from the heat we’ve had lately. For whatever reason, a gloomy rainy day is like a free pass for not doing anything productive, so I spent most of my day doing just that. Coffee and reading…more coffee and watching Desperate Housewives (but mostly the latter because I am determined to get through the final season and a half asap so that I can do something more worthwhile with my time). Right now I just need to find out what happens…kind of how I felt when I read Twilight..
I did take a long afternoon break to work out, get groceries, and make a meatloaf.
The workout: Instead of a run, I did a garage circuit. Five rounds of 20 reps (below) with a 3-minute run down the street and back between each round.
Garage circuits are one of my favorite workouts to do at home because they’re different from what I usually do, I have plenty of space to move around, and I can listen to music without wearing headphones. Plus, it’s the only way I enjoy strength training. It was a good workout, especially compared to Tuesday! On Tuesday I attempted light speedwork, and it was kind of killed by the heat. I ran 20 min easy, 5 x 3 min fast, 20 min easy, but it was really hot out, so I slowed the pace down and took a few breaks.
Later on Tuesday, I met my friend Stephanie for dinner! We hadn’t seen each other since our gingerbread house extravaganza last December, so we had plenty to catch up on. We chatted while we ate chips and salsa, tacos, and chimichangas. No food pics, but take my word for it that my tacos were delicious. The soft taco shells were thick like pita bread, so they were more like chicken fajita pitas. Chicken pajitas. Steph got her chimichanga fix.
10 days until the Bayshore marathon! Since I can stalk the weather now, it looks like it will be mid 60’s during the race with a high of 72, but there is still plenty of time to change. I’m still deciding what to wear and what flavors of Gu to take.
Tacos, burgers, or pizza?
