Oh check it out- it’s Wednesday already!
With the crazy that is work, I barely noticed Tuesday go by.
Good thing- sometimes I’m a bit irrational on Tuesdays. Stupid, stupid day of the week…
Anyway, I wasn’t chattering away as normal yesterday on here, but you can assume it was the same ol’ same ol’ around here. This girl has issues breaking from routine.
But today we’re changing that a little.
Nikki was talking about her interval running yesterday and it happened to catch my eye. The treadmill boredom is a real thing. And it’s awful. Plus, if you want to see change, I can’t just “think” or “talk” about going outside of the box. I’ve got to actually do it.
Seems reasonable enough, right?
Speed work isn’t my favorite, but that doesn’t mean a little interval training is going to kill me. And it’s all for the greater good. So that’s what happened this morning. For 40 minutes, I did a 5-minute circuit:
3 minutes at 8:34, 1 minute at 7:47, 1 minute walking
Because I’m OCD, this happened for 45 minutes (9x) so I could make sure to hit 4 miles of actual running.
Running. It’s a sick addiction.
So yeah. 45 minutes, ya’ll. That will tire the hell out of you.
And apparently also make you say things like “ya’ll”.
Clearly it’s the exhaustion talking.
How did you find your way into my shopping cart last week?
Oh yes- the sales at the grocery store.
Blasted! I’m more of an orange/yellow pepper kind of girl. And I ended up having to go and buy something else to go with it in order to use it. So really, was there money saved? No.Ah well. I still like green peppers decently well and they work fabulously in wraps with spicy chicken sausage. So no harm done.Not for the faint-hearted. Spicy spicy spicy! (especially if you throw some salsa in there)
Plus, it assisted in the quest to help my roommate use up a bag of flour tortillas that is about to kick the bucket (according to the “use by” date).
It’s all about teamwork.
Thanks pretty green thing- you made it all possible.
Just remembered I need to be sure to wash that glass. Tonight will be spent cheering on Mizzou once again. We’re ranked #2 right now and seem to be on a bit of a roll (knock on wood).
It’s my half birthday today, so they better not let me down.
You hear that boys? Do it to it!
