Apparently yesterday was National Running Day? I had no idea until I opened up my blog reader yesterday afternoon and saw about six people in a row blogging about it. I forgot all about it again until last night when, once again, I was reminded of it when I started browsing my Facebook news feed.
So unbeknownst to me, I actually ended up participating in the day with a speedy 3.5 mile run after work (umm yeah, that whole morning workout thing was a no-go yesterday). I was able to finish my first 3 miles in just under 27 minutes, which was easily the best run I’ve had in a loooooong time.
And, I blame my friend Morgan for the stellar performance after she shared her own awesome running stats with me yesterday on our afternoon walk. Hey, I’ll take motivation wherever I can find it!
So that’s what’s new on the exercise front, and I did even manage to get up again this morning for a 30 minute NTC app workout. Who knows how long this little groove will last (they come and go in waves) but I’ll keep riding this particular wave while it lasts because I’m feelin’ goooood.
Other than that? Let’s see…
Salads for lunch the past two days have been pretty darn delicious.
Last night’s dinner of grilled BBQ chicken, creamy garlic shells, and carrots was a pleasant surprise after having our softball game cancelled last minute.
I picked up some more chicken on sale at The Fresh Market on Tuesday so we’re finally restocked.
We’re about one bowl away from finishing off our container of watermelon sherbet. That lasted us all of about 3 days.
I’ve been spending a bunch of time scanning the internet for ideas for Lucas’s first birthday party. I’m pretty sure I have a theme in mind, but I’m having the hardest time not wanting to drop hundreds of dollars on decorations and whatnot that I know I really don’t need. Thank you, Pinterest.
Besides that, there’s not a whole lot to share today. So I’ll leave you with the only recent picture I have of Lucas on my phone from the past few days…
Sometimes, he really cracks me up when he sleeps. I love it.
