you thought i was gonna say movie, didn’t you. nope, dinner and a WORKOUT! that’s my kinda date.
i usually run out in the hot sun on wednesdays cause i’m crazy. i prefer running in the heat over the cold, any day. for today’s workout, i selected 5k on my ipod. be realistic with your workouts. especially if you’re just starting out or getting back into a workout groove. set the bar low, and exceed your goals gradually. i had every intention to go past 5k, and i did just that. just a mind trick i like to play on myself sometimes. set small goals for yourself and knock them out one at a time.
don’t let the 14:12 pace fool ya, i did intervals the entire way. i sprinted hard for 15 seconds, then walked for 30. repeat. give or take a couple seconds;) the time always flies by because 1, well, my ipod is on, 2 switching up my speed keeps things ‘exciting’ ( no boring single-paced run ), and 3, i run outside through my neighborhood and enjoy the scenery. i stay off the treadmill as much as possible. you should too. anyway, the bulk of the 5k was intervals. i then ran/walked home at a moderate pace for another 2k or so for a total of 7k for the evening. dinner was cooking while i was away:
baked tilapia, roasted sweet potatoes, and lightly creamed spinach.
we’re keepin it light tonight- STILL working off memorial day wkend, hahaha. *blank stare* i melted about 3 tbsp of good ol coconut oil and drizzled it over the tilapia fillets as well as my sliced raw sweet potatoes. i seasoned them both with tony c’s and some black pepper and threw them into the oven. 350 deg, 30 minutes, both done. i microwaved and drained the spinach, then added just two light swiss laughing cow cheese wedges, and a little salt and pepper.
quick and to the point today! score! off to bed i go- 5:30 am weight workout tomorrow.
