Hi, friends! How’s it going?
I headed out for an 8-mile run yesterday afternoon, but, unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned.
It was a beautiful fall day (seriously, it was one of those perfect fall days you dream about), so I laced up my sneakers and headed toward Southfield to tackle my run.
Things went well at first. I trucked along, kind of slow, but I felt okay. I listened to last week’s Balanced Bites podcast with guest Michelle from Nom Nom Paleo. The conversation between Liz (from Cave Girl Eats and co-host of Balanced Bites) and Michelle kept me thoroughly entertained for a good 2.5 miles.
As I approached mile 3, I started to feel awful. My legs were heavy, and I just wanted to stop running. It was kind of weird. Usually, when I get tired on a run, I can push through. I’ll run slower for a little bit (or walk) and then get back into a groove, but this time it didn’t happen, and I was surprised how terrible I felt less than 3 miles into my run. I just wanted to STOP, which isn’t a feeling I typically get.
I didn’t get my 8-miler in yesterday, but I still managed to run (a slow) 6 miles. Considering how crappy I felt, I’ll take it. Hey, I’ll try again tomorrow.
After my run, I came home and made an epic egg and double cheese sandwich. I toasted a bagel, fried up an egg, melted on a slice of cheddar, and then spread on some goat cheese and”¦ WOW! Goat cheese, people. Put it on your egg sandwich. You won’t regret it! (I forgot to snap a pic, but my sandwich looked a lot like the one below.)
A few hours later, I made dinner, which was Potato and Chorizo Dobladas, which is definitely a favorite in our house. I can’t believe we forgot about this recipe””it soooooo good! I mean, chorizo, potatoes, and cheese? How could you not like it?!
A little tip: Mix the oil from the chorizo into the mashed potatoes. Mmmm!
After dinner, I ate all of the pumpkins out of the Harvest Mix that I just bought. I always eat the pumpkins first and then eat a few pieces of the candy corn and then none of the chocolate candy corn. Thankfully, Mal likes the chocolate and regular candy corn, so it works out.
While I ate all of the pumpkins, I watched a couple of episodes of Bethenny. I’ve been DVR-ing her show for a couple of weeks now, and I really like it! Anyone else watching?
