Todayâ€¦ was one of those days. You know, one of those days that I did NOT want to go running. So I didnâ€™t.
When I feel like skipping a run, I factor in several things: 1) Am I training for a race?â€¦ 2) Is this a very important training run (like a long one or a speedwork session)?â€¦ 3) Will I feel better after this workout or worse? Iâ€™m a firm believer that exercise should energize you! Otherwise, why are we doing it? Workouts should be FUN. I didnâ€™t feel like it would be very much fun today, so I skipped my three miler. And it felt awesome. 🙂
Being stuck in the car for 4 hours was probably a contributing factor to my lazinessâ€¦
Pre-drive lunch of hummus sammie, fruit, and veg:
Topped my hummus with these bean sprouts that were literally little beans! So cute.
+ a tomato, cucumbers, cheese slice, and apple.
I drove and drove, and I listened to Don Henley:
1) New York Minute is the best song, ever.
2) Why is Don smoking a cigarette? He doesnâ€™t even look like he knows how to hold it correctly.
Sing-along snack of cashews:
And a pre-run snack when I still thought I was going on a run:
Dinner was courtesy of the Husband. He made lovely stir-fry of kidney beans, zucchini, broccoli, carrots, leeks, pepper, garlic, and ginger on a bed of brown rice.
With tomato sauce mixed in with the rice.
Mmm! And a big blondie brownie for dessert. But I ate it too fast to photograph. 🙂
Another week begins!
