T is for Tuesday or based on the way I felt this morning – Tired. Since I did a strength workout Monday morning, I wanted to do some sort of cardio workout on Tuesday. I was not motivated this morning. I tossed around several ideas of running workouts that I could do in a 20-30 minute range before deciding I should just run a high tempo 5k. Every once in a while, I just need to see where I stand when I am not feeling my best.
I honestly surprised myself. My watch wasn’t working right for a better half of the first mile, but I know the route of my usual 3.2 mile loop. I ran through the finish right under 23 minutes. Haven’t I told you before, that it seems like on the days that I really don’t want to work out, I usually perform the best? Maybe it is because I have to focus more? The first question that my husband asked me when I walked in the door was, “Was it worth it?” I would say most definitely. Even if I only got out there for less than thirty minutes, I pushed myself and ultimately set the tone for my day.
Speaking of setting the tone for your day. Have you noticed that there is a 6:15 AM class on Saturday now? Start your weekend early and get your workout out of the way. If you are already signed up, send me some song requests!!
Dinner was another quick one. This time we opted for take out. Again, we didn’t have time to make a big dinner for leftovers on Sunday. I had an errand to run at the mall, so I picked up Chipotle on the way out. If you want healthy, quantity this is the place to go. I have talked about how great my dinners are from Chipotle before, but I can’t tell you enough how fresh the salads are. Salad above has brown rice, corn salsa, mild salsa, black beans and chicken.
