When I got home from work I tried to figure out what to do for my workout and where to do it. I thought so hard that it made me fall asleep and snore very loudly as Billy was trying to do homework. When I woke up I decided to go on the treadmill. One mile in and I started going crazy. Why in the world was I not outside in the fresh air enjoying the 50 degree weather, especially when there wasn’t even anything good to watch on my computer?
I took it outside in shorts and a long sleeve t-shirt. Ahhhhh so much better. I think I am more of a treadmill runner if it is really really early in the morning and I don’t want to think but when I do want to think about life/things then I can’t handle being stuck inside to run
I decided to do an out and back course and on the way back my sister called saying that she passed someone that looked just like me. Turns out it was me and they were headed to dinner right along my running path. I called Billy to meet me there and we had a nice little family dinner.
Mac and cheese with hot sauce, remember how I was talking about mac and cheese on Thursday and how bad I wanted some?!?! One of my nieces didn’t like hers so I did the right thing and took care of it for her.
My dad also came (my mom is visiting my brother in Arizona) and bought a pizza for the three of us to share.
This really may have been the best bbq pizza I have ever had. The sauce was super sweet and the crust was really thick and soft. My sis and her kids went across the street to go watch the BYU volleyball game but Billy and I stayed with my dad at the restaurant and talked for a few hours.
Yes, I did get a million weird stares being in my nike tempos, a zebra headband, mascara smeared all over my face from my nap and my garmin and headphones thrown all over the place.
I don’t get a ton of time to talk with my dad (he works a crazy amount of hours) and so it was really fun to spend our Friday night with him talking about everything from the Presidential debates to the best froyo in town to our top 4 choices in cars.
Perfection in my book.
Added bonus, I didn’t even have to get ready to go out….I just ran to my dinner location. Talk about making sure to refuel within an hour of your workout.
What does you dad do for a living?
-He is an inventor…cool right?!?!
Do you make an effort to refuel within an hour of your workout!?!?!
-I didn’t used to when I was clueless about its recovery benefits but now I make sure that I eat something with carbs and protein as soon as possible.
Any races this weekend? What about long runs?
