My favorite lunch spot lately. I just can’t stray from the BBQ Chicken Wrap. Utah people- this is from Cafe Fresh. I clearly love restaurants that start with the word cafe.
My mom told me yesterday that walking isn’t going to keep up my running fitness. Mothers always know best. She told me it would be a really good idea to hit the pool for some pool running. I think I made up 982 excuses to not go but she had rebuttals for all of them (she even gave me a swim cap because I said I didn’t want chlorine in my hair since I just had it bleached. She also said she would stay home while Brooke napped so I could go).
She knows I thrive off of endorphins and pool running always gets my heart rate WAY UP and the endorphins flowing. I did a post all about pool running here.
I believe that this is by far the best way to keep up your running fitness when you aren’t running. Boring but crazy effective. You gotta do what you gotta do. Thanks mom for getting me out the door.
Workout: 30 minutes at medium/hard effort and then 30 seconds x 5 at HARD effort.
The endorphins came and I felt much better afterward. I took my pulse after some of my 30 second ‘sprints’ and my heart rate was around 190. Really, it is no joke. Running + all of the resistance from the water = this will keep my endurance up.
Quick wardrobe change to get froyo and go to the park. This will be a daily summer tradition.
Just contemplating life on the top of the slide.
As I was leaving Cafe Fresh I asked them if I could buy some of their tortillas. They are by far my favorite tortillas and they sold a pack of 12 to me. Little did they know that they brightened my whole week.
Dinner was a copy cat of lunch. Chicken, rice, corn, lettuce, bbq and Tortilla bigger than my dinner plate.
You need to make these now.
AMAZING Muddy Buddies:
1 box chex cereal
1 package almond bark
1 box funfetti cake mix
Melt the chocolate according to the directions. Pour over cereal and stir gently until cereal is covered. Then dump the cake mix on top and toss to coat.
I then went to bed at 7:30 because a cold hit me hard after dinner. Here’s to waking up (I write these posts at night) feeling a million times better!
Who has tried pool running out?!?! Thoughts?
Anyone else having really good weather right now? What are the temps like where you are?
Favorite place to get lunch lately?

-Usually really late at night (I bet you could guess that by all of the errors) and then my second one during Brooke’s nap.
