Yes! Yes! Yesssssss!
We made it to Friday! For a minute there (or 4 days…), I didn’t think today would ever come. To be more precise, I was desperately awaiting for today at 5:00 P.M. After a one day weekend, I’m ready for two glorious days off work.
On the running front, I completed two 7 milers on the trails near my office. I felt great on both (finally)!!! On Tuesday’s run, I was gliding down a hill, feeling fantastic when a larger than normal root came out of nowhere, and I
tripped completely ate it!
This hurt like a mother thanks to landing on gravel.
Dirty + bloody shirt.
Even my leg and elbow got a beating.
At least the sky was gorgeous when I
hobbled made it back to my car.
Post run nourishment was a green monster.
Spinach, frozen ‘naner, chocolate rice protein powder, frozen peaches, and almond milk? Yes, please!
Dinner that night was courtesy of a Whole Foods run a few days earlier.
Rising Moon’s vegan garlic and basic gnocchi.
Paired with roasted veggie marinara sauce + black beans + spinach.
The gnocchi was sooo good. I will definitely buy this brand again, and I love that they have vegan options that still taste amazing! The gnocchi was soft an buttery. Can’t wait to try other flavors.
In other news…
Breakfasts this week consisted of the usual: overnight oats.
In the standard, yet always scrumptious, chocolate cherry mix. Featuring a huge blob of Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter.
And the seasonal pumpkin pie variety.
With a little coconut butter on top. My newest obsession.
My breakfast did not consist of these:
Oh, the joys of working in an office.
Life Grocery cold bar.
Other notable moments of the week:
Ugh. I have to collect fecal coliform samples for work. Yes, I have to collect poo in surface water samples. Oh, they joys of environmental sampling.
I PAID OFF MY CAR!!! A whole 11 months early, too. I celebrated with a car wash. Got to keep my baby lookin’ good!
SIABs: gotta love ‘em.
I heart Atlanta.
All in all, a good (yet busy) week.
I’ve got an 18 mile run planned for the morning. Wish me luck!
Question: Do you have any big plans this weekend, or are you just planning on taking it easy?
