Welcome, May! You haven’t quite warmed up to us yet, but you allowed me a glorious run around Delaware Park with the husband, so I think I’m going to like you.
The half marathon plan called for 4 miles this morning, so we set out through our neighborhood for a loop around the park and back. Runs like this are when I’d kill for a Garmin; MapMyRun isn’t 100% accurate when you’re not going in a straight line. To the best of my knowledge, we ran 4 miles, in 48 minutes. That’s crazy slow, but I ran the entire time so I’m feeling proud of myself! We finished with a short walk around the ‘hood to bring our workout to 1 hour.
Then I came home and got into bed. The run didn’t really tire me out (my legs feel great!), but we’ve been staying up way too late watching “Scrubs” lately. Running knocks my hunger back anyways, so I gladly showered and fell into bed without breakfast.
When I was done with the Sleeping Beauty routine I made myself a glass of hazelnut cocoa,
and some baby carrots.
And we just finished a Southern feast of a dinner –
Cheddar and Scallion Corn Bread from Fitness Magazine,
Sloppy Maple-BBQ Turkey Joes from Everyday with Rachael Ray,
and some steamed spinach.
I ate my spinach in the ‘joe juice and it was so good! I definitely took an extra large serving of everything. A great meal all around.
We ate the early dinner because we are headed to Shea’s Theatre to take in a show. I am beyond excited! My parents bought us tickets for Easter and we are seeing one of my favorites.
For funsies, see if you can guess the show from my hints –
Any ideas? I’ll be back tomorrow with a recap!
