Apparently I got so wrapped up in this morning’s American Girl talk that I forgot to post about my workout.
Or maybe I intentionally blocked it out of my mind since it wasn’t exactly a pleasurable experience?
Today’s workout included a five mile run with Sadie. It was one of those “stop, start” runs thanks to Sadie’s itty bitty bladder, but this time I didn’t mind the breaks.
My legs felt incredibly heavy on my run… lead legs! (I blame yesterday’s intense leg workout.) I kept waiting to get into a running groove, but it never happened, so I just trucked along until I was back home.
I know I’ve said it before, but the weekday runs are definitely my least favorite part of half marathon training. I find them to be so redundant after a while, but they’re a necessary evil for me to feel my best on race day and prevent injury.
I’m already looking forward to my workouts once the half marathon is over! I can’t wait to incorporate more circuit and treadmill workouts back into my routine.
In the meantime I’m in the process of making a new running playlist for Saturday’s long run, so if you have any awesome song recommendations, feel free to share because I’m in the market for some good tunes. I’ll be sure to post my playlist once it’s complied.
There’s something so yummy about classic tuna salad… but I think salmon salad may give it a run for its money!
I used a pouch of wild caught salmon to make a delicious salmon salad that I served on a whole wheat hot dog bun with an assortment of sides including carrots, pickles, string cheese and Greek yogurt.
I poured the remaining salmon juice from the packet over Sadie’s food which promptly made me her favorite doggie parent for the day.
Back to work! I have two freelance projects that are screaming my name.
