Hey there! Polar Vortex Part II might be on its way to DC — but in the meantime, I’m going outside for a run!The game plan: 5-minute warm-up, 20 minutes fast, 5-minute cool-down. Short and sweet (well, more like short and painful).My fast miles: 7:28, 7:11,7:13.Not as close to 7:00 flat as I’d like them to be, but I’m blaming my slowness on the soreness acquired from yesterday’s longer run and, more importantly, from Sunday’s killer CrossFit workout! This little routine (designed by Anthony) takes about 45 minutes total — and if you’re like me, will leave you sore for days. Great indoor workout to do during the snowstorm.Relevant links: front squats, one-arm DB rows (love the guy in this video), DB flys (same guy I think), weighted overhead lunges. Just do this routine a couple times a week and your arms will be as buff as the video man’s 😉
I always try to tack on something delicious to the end of my post, so here you go:Double date with Miriam and Dan at Matchbox! This seared tuna salad was awesome. When I’m out to eat, I like to order something I can’t make at home, and this fancy dish definitely surpassed my culinary feats. I also loved the ginger-soy dressing.
Bonus points that Miriam and I were actually able to take a normal picture (after our failed attempt the other day).Now it’s time to buckle in for the snowfall! See you tomorrow!
