rising sun & secret salad

Hiya! What have you been up to since the sun came up? 3-photo_3For Anthony and me, a “fun” fartlek run was on the calendar. 1-photo_2We started with a five-minute warmup, and then alternated two- and three-minute speed sessions with two- and three-minute recovery sessions.4-photo_4Plus a series of sprints in a soccer field! 2-photoTotal time: a grueling 60 minutes. Speedwork is hard,  but it makes your workout go by faster and makes you feel so strong and proud after. :)

Just so you know that I’m not eating graham streusel cake all the time, here’s a pretty salad I made yesterday:veggie_hummus_salad_0004It’s a “throw-everything-random-in-the-fridge-together” sort of salad, which are always surprisingly delicious!veggie_hummus_salad_0005The lineup: lettuce, celery, red pepper, green onions, olives, and hummus. Plus salt, pepper, lemon juice, olive oil, and balsamic. Hummus is a secret salad topper of mine. (What, you don’t have secret salad toppers?)veggie_hummus_salad_0007Now it’s time for mo’ cake. Have a great day!

  1. Love it! I have been doing a fridge clean out and for lunch its any veggies I can find, a can of tuna, hummus, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and garlic powder! Love how hummus makes a healthy alternative to a creamy dressing!

  2. My favorite fartlek is sets of: 30 sec easy + 20 seconds tempo + 10 seconds sprinting. I usually do 5ish sets in a row and then take 2 minutes to recover before the next round.

    I really like croutons, but they aren’t that strange.

    • Oh, thanks for the tip! Maybe I’ll try that next round. I’d like to do a post with different fartlek workout ideas…

      IDK, croutons can get pretty weird 😉
