Today’s Workout: 1 mile run, PT exercises
Hope you all had a great weekend! I spent mine enjoying the sunshine, family, and great weather. Basically my weekend was full of running and eating really good food. Here’s some highlights I want to share with you!
My RW Summer Run Streak is still going strong: 7 days in a row! I think this is the longest running streak I’ve ever had, give or take a few days. My plan is to run 1 easy mile on what would normally be my “rest days” and its working out pretty well. Saturday I ran 3 miles on the streets (yay, no treadmill!) since it was so nice out. It wasn’t an easy run for some reason though, perhaps it was all the exercise I did on Friday that really wore me out. But either way, I finished Day 6!
Today I had very little energy for exercising since I haven’t really had a true rest day in a week. By the time the evening came I was reading on blogs and twitter about everyone extending their own running streaks and decided I really didn’t want to break my own. Not this early on anyway! So I got my lazy butt on the treadmill for one quick mile thankfully. Day 7 complete! The streak continues.
There was lots of good food this weekend, most of it made by Karl. I’m so lucky to have a boyfriend who loves to cook and it actually really good at it. I think he missed his calling.. he needs to be a chef! I always tell him if he wants to practice recipes, I’ll be the taste-tester
So this weekend we had access to a grill and Karl decided to go all out and cook all day long. He made me and my family grilled pineapple and swordfish tacos with spicy mayo, pico de gallo, guacamole, and chips — all homemade! It was AMAZING.
We put all that deliciousness into taco form to eat. The only thing not homemade was the taco shells (thanks Ortego!) and the pineapple since we don’t grow our own here. Not sure they would even be able to grow in this crazy NYC weather. But we did grill those babies up on our own. Maybe its just me, but pineapple just tastes better grilled!
I also discovered this awesome Odwalla drink that I had for breakfast this weekend. In terms of texture, its basically a mix between juice and a smoothie and the flavor is great. You have got to try it, its awesome and there’s a ton of vitamins in it. So good!
Another exciting weekend event was that Karl got a bike (and hes loving it) and I think I picked out the one I’ll be getting!
Unlike Karl who is much more spontaneous that I am and bought his in about 10 minutes, I needed to take some time and do research. But I’m planning on contacting the bike store and telling them to hold onto it for me since he was giving me a good deal (better than online). I won’t show you which bike I’m planning on getting just yet but I’ll wait until the purchase is final. You’ll just have to wait and see! I can’t wait to be riding around the city, this is long overdue!
How was your weekend? Tell me some details!
