Felt good to lace up the track shoes today!I did one mini speed workout during our Europe trip, but other than that one workout, my runs in Europe were nice and easy. Time to get some speed back.
On the menu: 7x800m with a one-minute standing rest between each. My distance was a bit off due to some bleachers stuck in the first three lanes… what?I was shooting for 3:10-ish for each rep and came in at 3:17, 3:11, 3:09, 3:09, 3:10, 3:10, and 3:10. Took me a few laps to find my groove, but I did it! When I wear these electric blue capris I feel extra fast. I also feel faster when I wear sunglasses — is that weird? Does anyone else feel like certain clothing/accessories physically (or, okay, psychologically) make them faster?Speaking of accessories, I’m loving my new Garmin 220. It loads satellites so quickly AND uploads my data to my Garmin Connect account through Bluetooth. I can check out my stats right on my phone! When I had the 210 I was terrible about uploading so this is a real lifesaver.
And while we’re talking about efficiency — I’m back on the Cooksmarts bandwagon! After weeks of eating out, it’s been fun to get back in the kitchen again. First recipe of the week: panko-crusted fish with zucchini fritters.The fritters took a bit of work, but were a fun new way to cook veggies. I had read in reviews that some people’s fritters turned out soggy, so I threw in some sweet potato shreds and an extra egg to help hold mine together. And no, that’s not a huge glass of champagne in the picture below — that’s sparkling water! Anthony was feeling fancy and poured our La Croix into wine glasses. We are so wild.The fish came together in minutes. Topped with a roasted red pepper/corn/cilantro mix. A flavor combination I would have never thought of, but am glad I tried!Catch you tomorrow!
