For a relaxing day I sure am pooped! Seriously! I’m going to wrap this blog up and then hit the sack, I need it!
This morning I managed to get myself up around 8am, scarf down some Cheerios and soy milk (we needed groceries) and then hit the old dusty trail for a 10k run! I took it back down to Taylor Creek Park as I wanted the shade. I was a bit slower today but that’s alright, I just went out there and enjoyed my last no-training run day! It was hot out so I added a wee bit of Gatorade to my Camelbak and mixed it with some water as I knew I’d be sweating buckets out there. Whoever said that Camelbaks don’t have a plastic taste to them lied but I’ll take it any day! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I <3 my Camelbak!
When I got back I decided that I was going to stay in my sweaty, gross running gear as I wanted to get some gardening done and didn’t want to shower twice so I just cooled off in the house and cooked up some breakfast for Alan and myself. Leftover pancakes! YUM!
I added PB again for some post-run protein power and some leftover cherries for some fruit action.
I gave my Dad a call after breakfast to wish him a great Father’s Day (I’ll be seeing him next weekend) and then Alan and I headed outdoors to tackle our jungle backyard. The good news is that our tomato plants are thriving! Look!
Very happy to see these guys thriving back there. Also thriving are the insane amounts of raspberry bushes we have. We’ve decided to dramatically reduce the amount of bushes we have to a small area as they have quite literally taken over the entire back garden. But I do love raspberries and was excited to see them peeking out!
I dare say that by the end of the week/into next week you’ll be seeing a lot of these babies in my breakfast! YUMMY!!!!
Alan and I worked for two hours back there, filling up 2.75 yard bags full of weeds, raspberry bushes and rose plants (we’re replacing the roses).
Yup. I’m double gross. 10k run gross AND two hours of gardening gross. I’m a vision…
We finally broke for lunch around 1pm and while I was scrubbing the grime off of myself in the shower, Alan was kind enough to throw together some form of lunch. We started with grilled asparagus!
Moved onto cheese and crackers.
And ended with Boyfriend Soup (he threw in everything from the fridge…).
Very random but it was pre-grocery shop!
We both ended up napping for an hour after this and then finally went grocery shopping!
For dinner we ended up over at Alan’s Dad’s for a Father’s Day dinner. We had a good ol’ fashioned BBQ with tons of salad!
Note: One burger does not look like the others! I loved how my non-meat burger kept it’s shape moreso than the actual meat burgers!
Wendy’s awesome potato salad!
Blue cheese coleslaw! YUM!
Blueberries for the salad!
For dessert, Alan and I bought some Dufflet’s cupcakes and we inhaled them before I took a picture but I had a heavenly vanilla one and was very thankful for running 10k this morning, essentially burning off the over 300 calories I had just eaten for dessert!
I know I promised a hair update but, again, I have to hold off until tomorrow, I am beat! AND I have to be up early tomorrow because tomorrow starts my first day of half marathon training! Thankfully I’m starting with yoga! Sweet!
