Last tough run of the week (until Saturday). Wednesday runs are long, but I’m so glad when they’re over. Just took a cold shower and am drinking a glass of ice-cold water — two things that become 100% more magical when completed after a summer run!
Luckily I had the East Nasty runners to keep me company for about half of my miles this morning! We ran up some hills and around the lake. My hip is actually feeling a little better (yay!), but my hamstrings, abs, and lower back were actually a bit sore today. I’m thinking it was that tough track workout from yesterday! According to very reliable Internet sources like Livestrong and BreakingMuscle.com (??), sprinting is quite the ab workout. Who knew. Done and done!Speaking of six-pack abs: Here’s a giant spread of Mexican food. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m working on cleaning out my freezer this week, which means it’s time to tackle the mountain of frozen tortillas we’ve collected. We’ll get through them, one taco at a time!
I guess this creation was technically a fajita more than a taco though. Anthony fired up the grill and sizzled steak, onions, and peppers until they were nice and charred. Meanwhile, I stewed black beans over the stove and went overboard on the toppings!We piled our tacos so high that a fair amount of fajita spilled over the shells, onto our hands, and around the plate. Messy meals are the best meals.Let’s get this Wednesday started!
- Favorite taco topping?
- Are your abs or back ever sore after a speed workout?
- How full do you keep your freezer? I am weirdly obsessed with keeping mine sparse and organized and become anxious when it gets full. Haha.
