We’ve made it to the middle of the week! The weather is crummy but I don’t care.Yesterday I set out for some easy miles. After a couple speed sessions and a weekend race, it felt good to just do my own thing.I headed down to Shelby Park, where the wildlife was! I saw a number of frogs, worms, rabbits, and DEER! These guys just stood and smiled for the camera. I think I was more scared than they were I covered seven miles at an 8:00-ish pace. I guess I have the exact stats on my Garmin, but I don’t really look at my splits too much unless I’m doing a specific track workout or race. How often you guys upload/analyze your Garmin stats?
I’m in an especially good mood today because Anthony is coming home! He’s been out of town for the past couple nights, so we made sure to plan a date night before his departure. Our destination: the very romantic Thai Phooket in (barely) East Nashville. (image: Nashville Guru)
So yes, it’s basically a restaurant inside a mobile home right off the interstate. BUT, everyone raves about how delicious Thai Phooket is, so Anthony and I decided to give it a try.We started off with an order of summer rolls. You could tell all of the veggies and herbs inside were so fresh! Although everything we ordered was good, these rolls ended up being our favorite.We split an order of drunken noodles (pictured below) and red curry as our main meal. The noodles were pretty spicy — I actually broke a sweat eating them and had to order a beer to help cool down Thai Phooket is a winner! Don’t let its dumpy exterior fool you; inside, this place serves up magically wonderful meals.
And now I’m off for a short run. Have a great day!
