Down but not Out

I cannot believe I didnt update yesterday!  I have been taking my vacation here pretty hard.  A lot of running, recovering, book reading, and cooking.  Yesterday included some errands that apparently took up too much time to blog (okay, maybe not, because Yesterday I also read an entire James Patterson novel!).

First things first, Wednesday night I made a delicious dinner.  I love breaded chicken.  Normally I made it myself, dipping the chicken in a breadcrumb/parmesan cheese/italian spices/flour blend.  I decided to try out a shake’n’bake because it only has SEVEN CARBS!  Way less than the bread crumbs I was using.  It was, of course, delicious.  Served with roasted potatoes and asparagus (on sale!).  I had about 50 grams of protein with this dinner which is kind of  a big deal for me!

Yesterday I had an 80 minute run on schedule.  Just regular ol’ Zone 1 run, no hill bounding, due to the race on Sunday.  I went outside and it was glorious.  My longest run outside since October (and that was 26.2).  I had to run outside to get my REAL zone 1 pace (not the treadmill one), so we could figure out my pace for the 10k.  Then I came home and proceeded to lay on the couch for the afternoon and read above mentioned book.

But before that run, I dropped my taxes off with my grandmother.  So happy to have them off and being calculated!  I also stopped my parents house to pick up any mail I had there.  I had a little package from BrooksID waiting for me! A sweet shirt. A little big for me (it is a small, but apparently I am an extra-extra-extra small?), but pretty cool to have!

 

 

I also love their motto. This is the back:

I agree: Run Happy!

I have a big day planned today. Do all my lesson planning for next week. Run 35 minutes on the treadmill (recovery–last run until Friday). And read another book!

QUESTION:

Are you racing this weekend?

Yep, 10k on Sunday in Hyannis!

Whats YOUR favorite running shoe company?

Brooks, of course. I could run all day long in their Adrenalines!

  1. No race this weekend, but a 5k the following weekend. I am on a kick with Nike running shoes at the moment. Yesterday my physical therapist told me I need to go get my shoes checked out so I may be making a switch soon. BTW I do the same thing where I say “I was so busy doing XYZ!” Then, when I think about it…I spent 2 hours of my life on nordstrom.com. Oops. (At least you read a novel!)
