I had quite the lovely day!
It all started with a VERY quick workout at the gym. I didn’t have enough time to do everything I had planned, so I cut out some strength moves per the Intro to Iron Pumping Challenge and ran 2.0 speedwork miles instead of 4.0 miles. Something is better than nothing, I always say!
Day 7: Legs
- Warm Up: 5 minutes of cardio
- Lunge and Lift: 3 x 12 (novice system) for each leg
- Stability Ball Hamstring Curl: 3 x 12
- Leg Extensions: 3 x 12 with 30 lbs
- Stability Ball Calf Raises: Skipped
- Step Ups: Skipped
- Straight leg pullover crunch: 22 with 7 lb weight
For my run, I did the first mile in 9:00/mile and the second in intervals. I’d run 0.1 mile at 9:00/mile and the next 0.1 mile at 8:00/mile.
- Duration: 17:45 minutes
- Distance: 2.0 miles
I quickly changed and met my mom and aunt in Downtown Knoxville. We listened to some live country music (Paul Edelman – he was great) and then went to lunch.
Lunch was at Veg-a-Rama, a funky little vegetarian cafe. This is my aunt Cherie. She’s been vegetarian for over 20 years!
I love all the little details in Veg-a-Rama. It’s too cute, there are tons of vegan options, and the food is great!
I ordered the vegetarian French onion soup (this bowl was huge – a lot bigger than it looks). I also had some bread on the side.
And the house salad, which came with some sort of vinaigrette.
Since this was a wild and crazy ladies day out, my aunt, mom, and I split a bottle of wine. I had two little glasses of Malbec.
And dessert was a lollipop.
We did some shopping at local consignment stores and I got a housewarming gift for Megan. Annnnd then we came home and crashed.
Gotta rustle up some dinner, and then it’s time for LOST! So excited. My mom and I are big fans. Are you Team Jack or Team Sawyer? Or are you just lost when watching LOST? I am Team Jack, and my mom is Team Sawyer. It is a confusing and weird show, I’ll admit!
