Good Monday evening to you! Let’s jump right into shall we? (This girl has some studying to do, ok, and maybe some Bloglovin’ to catch up on)

My sister was in town showing her friend the nifty thrift shops and antique stores in and around the Manhattan area. I met up with them at my parents house for lunch where ribs awaited. I think I have my parents hooked on the Raspberry Chipotle sauce as well because they had a fresh bottle in stock and I decided that would be tasty with the ribs. And I was right! I think I’m becoming addicted to it. Also, my parents had carrot cake and I could not say no. I had the tiniest sliver ever though! And to be fair, I ate it before I reinstated no sweets for the week. Ok ok, I know I’m just making excuses. Maybe I should just starting thinking of sweets as drugs, just say no!
My sister had gone to a Thai restaurant the day before and had her left overs at my parents. She didn’t want them sitting in the car for 2 hours on her drive back to KC so she let me have them. I never turn down free Thai food!
I think it was a green tofu curry and some chicken curry. Soo good!
Daniel and I ran 3.5 miles. On the last mile we decided to mix it up with some speed work. We run around the city park which is roughly 1.1 mile parameter. It’s square so one length is about .25 mile. For last mile we decided to alternate walking and running on each length. Not jogging, RUNNING. Like run as fast as you can for an endured amount of time. I was running twice as fast as my normal pace probably. Just kidding, that’d be like 12 miles/hour and my pace is typically around 6 miles/hour or a 10 min mile. I was probably running at around 8 or 9 miles/hour. For the first half of the running lengths I was like “Oh, yeah, this feels great, I could do this forever,” but by the last quarter I was like “Oh man I’m gonna die!” I definitely needed that walking length in between the running to catch my breath. Surprisingly, I think we ran the last mile faster than if we had just jogged it the whole time. Or maybe it just seemed that way. Next time I’ll try to time it!
When we got back from our run I knew I needed to do some strength training. I’ve been putting off incorporating that into my workouts. So I did like 10 pushups and 40 crunches. Not exactly strength training. I should start doing the 5 Day Workout Plan again.
Have you done any awesome strength training workouts lately? Or have you eaten any carrot cake lately?
