The weekend in review:
Friday- work, workout (elliptical + pull up machine)- then doggie cuddles and burgers. Mike made an appetizer that is he is going to write up- who wants HEALTHY General Tsao’s Cauliflower???? I loved it. I might have eaten a half a head of cauliflower!
I INHALED that burger!
Saturday I attacked the elliptical- and I am SORE?! —> this is new.
By attacked- I did a workout that (when I was coached), my coach gave me- for 90 sec, on 85% of max resistance, GO! Then, 2 minutes normal. If your resistance is appropriate, this is not a joke.
Meanwhile, Mike and Isaac went to puppy class:
For foods, we had date night in- and I cooked up a STORM. I made a few cool things, but our favorite was “risotto” made with farro- I cooked the grain in carrot juice to mimic “peas and carrots”, threw some large scallops on top- served with a buttery chardonnay- and DIED. I need to make it again before I post it (so it’s perfect)- but it was such a “spring” dish I just can’t wait.
I ran 7 miles! It wasn’t perfect, and my foot was definitely sore during parts of the run- but not terrible. After, I went on a shopping spree at Runner’s Alley. Decisions decisions! I nearly went with a pair of Brooks instead my my usual Asics- but I stuck with my old favorites- no need to rock the boat just yet. As I said, this is a “ramp back up” week- so today (Monday) is a non-running day. I will run every other day this week, and then next week will build on that (reverse taper).
Later we had a bunch of friends over for Sunday dinner at our house- the kids in our friend group met Isaac for the first time- it was good Samson and Isaac are fast friends.
No one took pics of the amazing dessert! ahh! My BFF Sarah made homemade ice cream and brownies Also not pictured was our awesome beef roast! I guess that means we were having a blast.
And just one more of our furry baby:
How was your weekend? Do anything fun?
