Morning! (And sorry for the delay — a few server issues this morning).
Wish I had a pretty photo for you, but the most beautiful sight of my indoor workout today was just my hot pink shoes… so here they are.Since the track by my apartment is still covered in ice , I finally had to give in and move my track workout to the treadmill. My coach preaches that outdoor track workouts are far superior than treadmill track workouts, and since I soak up all of his advice like a sponge (anyone remember Sponge from Salute Your Shorts?), I feel the same way.
4×200 at a 5:43 pace; 3×400 at a 5:56 pace; 4×200 at a 5:43 pace. 1-2 minute rest between each rep. PS this pace calculator and this treadmill pace converter are gold. And this nail polish is also gold (well, actually blue).One last fitness-related thing: I did a chin up AND a pull up the other day!And learned how to do a proper push up, thanks to the guidance of fitness and CrossFit expert Andrea Ferry (she teaches at CF Metro Center).I wrote an article for Active Life DC about the experience — you can read it here!
Other than my fitness date, though, things around here have been pretty quiet. Anthony is in Boston, so I dined solo last night.I made a simple stir fry with chicken, bell peppers, ginger, and garlic. Topped with some Whole Foods 365 sweet and sour sauce (that stuff is good!) and served over a brown rice/grain medley blend.
Served steaming hot! Paired with an episode of The Wrong Mans, one of my new Hulu favorites (Hulu doesn’t show Salute Your Shorts, unfortunately)Let’s get a move on this day! I’m ready for the weekend please.
- Any Salute Your Shorts fans out there?
- Do you cook for one often?
- Track work on the treadmill: yay or nay?
