I had quite the pleasant surprise this morning â€“ the Husband made me breakfast in bed. Such a nice gesture. I love eating in bed.
That little glass of brown-orange liquid is my B Vitamins!
He made eggs on toast with spinach, plus an orange.
I took advantage of the fact that I didnâ€™t need to leave bed for food and cuddled with the pups for a good hour. They are such good spooners. One of my greatest pleasures in life is laying in bed with my dogs.
I also did a little reading. Iâ€™m reading a review copy of Running on Empty, which tells Marshallâ€™s story of running across the country (from California to New York) in 52 days at the age of 57. So far, itâ€™s intriguingâ€¦ I have to admit that I donâ€™t actually LIKE Marshall. I think youâ€™re not suppose to at this point in the book. I am inspired by his running, though!
The only thing that got me out of bed, however, was a text from Nicole asking if I wanted to run. I said sure, but first, I needed to pack my swim bag. I did a back-to-back run and swim workout. Double workouts like this are KEY for triathlon training, and I like to minimize the downtime between workouts as much as possible.
We ran a 5K in 34 minutes (I was SO proud of myself â€“ donâ€™t call it a comeback!) and we only walked twice. Wahoo!
Then, I grabbed my swim bag and drove to the pool. I swam 1,000 yards very fast (22 minutes). I think itâ€™s easier to swim when youâ€™re already warmed up.
Spinach salad with baked tofu and corn salsa, plus a piece of bread with almond butter, mashed banana, and maple syrup.
All in all â€“ a perfect morning, by my standards! A little nappinâ€™, reading, exercise, and good eats. What more could a woman ask for?
