FRIDAY FUN POST #2
YES it’s Friday, the day we have waited for all week! Is it just me or did this week seem like it when on forever and ever?
RECAP OF LAST NIGHT
We met up with our Thursday night group and went to the Farmers Market here in town, it’s at night which I know is unique to our little town. We had so much fun, watched the carolers, shopped for breads, shopped for produce, and had some hot chocolate afterward. I didn’t get too much there, just some carrots (for the pot roast I am making today), a mini butternut squash and some sourdough bread (for the hubby of course).
Before we left I made this beautiful Cranberry Salmon Salad!
Today I ran 4 miles and did a great push up, ab, and weight work at home. I need to go the gym next week!!!! Great run, it’s a little chilly here in So Cal, and we hear there is SNOW in our forecast for next week!
Avg Pace: 8:21/mi
Max pace: 5:54/ mi
Calories Burned: 518
Abs and Stretching
50 straight crunches
50 one leg crunches on each side
50 toe touch crunches (laying on back legs up touching side to side)
25 lower ab leg lifts
2 minute plank moves
I made another wonderful bowl of oats (no pic sorry)
I am also making a Pot Roast for dinner tonight, well the crock pot will be slaving all day and I will enjoy tonight!!!! This is my first attempt at ever making Pot Roast, but it’s the perfect food for this gloomy weather.
