Goat Cheese Makes Everything A Little More Fancy
I almost didn’t make it to the gym tonight, but knowing that I had a power snack to get me through, I made it in. The fuel I had before I went:
Thomas Mini WW Bagel with Naturally More PB, and some SB’s. Love this with banana’s better.
I was afraid it might rain tonight so I went to the gym to do my track workout. I ran a 1 mile warm up, and then did the following set:
- 2X200’s- at a 7:20pace, with a recovery 200 in-between
- 2X400’s-at a 7:20pace, with a recovery 400 in-between
- 2X800’s-at a 7:20pace, with a recovery 800 in-between
Then I did a one mile cool down. I also did some ab work while I was at the gym, I love using all the fun equipment! I have a little something to share with you all but I will be brief, this run and the past two have not been so SPECTACULAR. My feet have been giving me much pain, but not enough for me to stop. I figured if I never talked about it, it would just go away, but it hasn’t!!! The sad thing is, my legs and feet were doing fine before I went out and got NEW shoes, and these shoes are basically what I have always run in!!! I don’t understand, I am hoping with a good sports massage and taking it easy these next couple days the pain will go away!
My dinner tonight was inspired by Heather’s dinner. It was compilation of everything I had the fridge.
Heated Sweet Potato
All mashed up!
Covered in sautéed spinach, tomatoes,mushrooms,onions,garlic, carrots, and I can’t remember what else.
Here is the best part, I grilled BBQ Tofu on the Foreman, and topped it with some light Goat Cheese!
This was AMAZING, I love goat cheese on anything but I have never had it like this. I felt like I was fine dining tonight, alone, Hubby’s working.
I also baked like a mad women in the kitchen, can’t wait to show you what I was working on. My whole evening was spent in the kitchen, cooking, baking, and cleaning. I haven’t spoken a word since I got home, I have been all alone for the past 4 hours!!!!
When was the last time you were silent the entire evening?!
Night friends, I have a 5 am wake up call for a 4 mile run in the morning. Crossing my fingers that the rain holds up.
Are you a rain or shine kinda runner?
