Hope everyone is having a good week! Mine has been stellar – I’ve had some fun things planned that have kept me busy and helped lift the funk from last week.
On Tuesday, I started the day with my first post-Achilles injury tempo run.
GUH. This was a rough one – I had hopes of steady 7:30 – 7:40s for 4 tempo miles, but the legs were just not having it. I think lack of sleep and some stomach troubles the past couple of days (i.e., not enough fuel!) really affected me during this run. Regardless of the sub-par pace, the effort felt hard, so I guess that counts for something, eh?
Breakfast was devoured – Kashi Heart to Heart with berries and almond milk
Even though I was exhausted by 8:00 a.m. (never a good sign), I had fun plans with Tracy to look forward to after work – cheering on the Bronx Bombers at Yankee Stadium on the most gorgeous spring evening we could have asked for!
And spending a small fortune on beer and Cracker Jacks, naturally.
I heart me a good ball game at Yankee Stadium, and even though the Yanks lost (I swear, I’m bad luck), catching up with Tracy made the trip well worth it. The night was so reminiscent of summer – I can’t wait for shorts, beach time, more ball games and outdoor/rooftop dining and drinking.
And I can’t forget – a break from school! I’ve decided to take the summer off from classes and focus on volunteering at a few NYC-area hospitals to get some needed clinical experience and beef up my application for the next round of dietetic internship submissions. I’m really looking forward to working with some great RDs and learning more about what they go through on a daily basis.
That’s all I got tonight, but coming up on the blog:
- Why fat is good
- My television debut (!?)
- A Mexican-themed recipe
