I had a whole other theme thought out for today's post, but I'll have to save that for another time. So look forward to hearing about some fiber purchases I made last weekend. But right now, I'm in recovery mode from this evening's workout, and that's all I can really think about.
I'm in the second week of Hal Higdon's Novice Supreme marathon training program, which specified a three-mile run for today. I usually run on the treadmilll before joining my group exercise class, but I only rack a little over two miles in 30 minutes, then give myself about ten minutes to refocus on whatever torture the trainer has devised. Could I squeeze in another mile? And then do a whole other workout?
You know it!
Now, the question remains, can I get out of bed tomorrow morning?
I'll deal with that hurdle when the alarm goes off. For now, I'm just digesting my delicious post-workout dinner. Brace yourselves, because I did not have pancakes. No, this time I went with something completely different: chana masala from Tarka Indian Kitchen, and Tutti Frutti frozen yogurt. Aside from the proximity to frozen yogurt, I chose Tarka because I've recently found that I quite like Indian food, making my dad and I the only two who do. So we have to take advantage of our opportunities to enjoy it, and I have to make my way through a menu full of wonderful-sounding dishes. Chickpea curry? Yum. And Taro frozen yogurt for dessert? Double yum.
I don't have an action shot of my cardigan sleeve sitting in a pile of basmati rice, you'll be happy to know. But I am a few inches into the ribbing there, and I've added a few layers of wrapping onto my single cop. If I can run three miles, then bust out a great group exercise class, I'm sure I can get these WIPs turned into FOs soon!

Congrats on the marathon training! I know you can do it.
Lastly, thank you for checking out Movie Madness Monday. I just wanted to let you know the more the merrier and netflix/DVD reviews are welcomed and encouraged. :)
Good for you for pushing yourself when exercising. When I challenge myself, that's when I feel the best.ReplyDelete
