I hope you had a super duper Sunday RUNday!!! I'm sure many of you are enjoying the Super Bowl right now, but if you are like me you are doing anything but watching football. ;)
How Lola reacted when I told her this Sunday is the Super Bowl, lol.
|It's a shame what a rough life she has. ;)|
Saturday was super sunny and mild so I headed out for my 5 miler. When you are sort of injured (I say this because my Physiotherapist and Masseuse tell me that it isn't actually an injury---? They explained that some areas are just weak/over worked), you are more than delighted to lace up and head out! And that's exactly how I felt yesterday morning.
Done done done! Just tightness not pain, and I stopped at half way and stretched out the old hammies.
A few people have asked how I prep my veggies so here's how I roll:
There's certainly no Master Chef creations happening in the Callaghan kitchen. It's usually something quick, but healthy. We ALWAYS have broccoli and carrots and I often have sweet potato. Often times I will roast peppers and normal white potatoes too.
I usually use a glass casserole dish drizzled with extra virgin olive oil to put my chopped veggies in and then use spice of choice. I really like this one:
|It's also awesome on chicken!!!!|
I'm really excited too because I just got a new Rachel Ray frying pan and it's amazing!
On Saturday Sam and I headed downtown and I replenished my running stash of Gu and nuun in hopes that I'll be logging some mega miles again soon. :)
|I bet most of you have these things in your kitchen also. ;)|
I was Sooooooo nervous for this run! I had not hit double digit runs in forever! I knew I had to keep it easy and flat or I'd pay dearly, so that's just what I did. I basically saw every runner in the hood while I was out. :) Matt drove by when I was at 7.5 miles and I stopped to stretch and say, "Hi." He took these action shots, lol. And I should tell you I totally forgot to hit stop on the garmin! :(
The hamstring gets a bit tight near the top and I managed it by incorporating stretch breaks throughout the run. Overall I felt a trillion times better than I was!
|Actual moving time was 1:22:34 since I left it running when I saw Matt.|
Here's a quick fruit story for you:
Heather went to the grocery store yesterday to buy strawberries to go with her french toast. Heather saw that the small container of strawberries was $9.99!!!!!!!!
Heather left the store without any strawberries.
Heather was sad. :(
Lastly, I'll leave you with my long run play list. (Because I LOVE to see what other people listen to and maybe someone will get a good tune idea from my list).
Thanks for stopping by the GGR blog this evening!
How was your Sunday RUNday?
Has produce become ridiculously overpriced in your neck of the woods?
Are you watching the Super Bowl?
