Yesterday was a rest day from running. I did a REALLY easy 30 minute spin on the bike (mostly because my legs were tight, let’s be real…I’d rather have slept in) and then did Insanity plyo workout after. Well, did most of it. She likes being in the middle of things:
First, she tried to bring me all those toys that are behind her. Then, I was in the middle of the “power squats” sequence and she comes and sits directly under my legs. She was definitely being an indoor dog yesterday and Joe wasn’t feeling well and in bed so she was super attached to me all day.
I forgot to take a picture of Slider because he is most definitely an outdoor-loving dog no matter the weather. But I found this old one in my email last week and it’s certainly relevant to all the east coast/midwest snow craziness.
Yes, that is me, waist-deep in snow. While Slider insists I throw his duck toy for him. This was back when Virginia and the DC area got 2.5-3ft of snow a few years ago. Probably 4 or 5 by now. I just remember the endless driveway shoveling 😦 It required so much energy for him to jump out of the snow and stay near the top that he passed out for hours after every trip outside. It was brilliant.
I was too busy sitting in bed reading some of my dissertation research to do much else the rest of the day (hence no actual pictures from yesterday’s outdoor playtime) but I did spend all afternoon eager to make one of my favorite healthy dinners which I hadn’t made in a while.
Mixed veggies (scallions,broccoli, baby corn, thai chili pepper, peas), ginger marinated shrimp, and buckwheat noodles 🙂 I make an easy, spicy Asian-inspired sauce to throw on and call it a day but it is SO YUMMY. I could actually eat it every day. And it’s good for you…who knew? You’re all probably in shock that I actually made something healthy instead of eating pizza or tacos.
About to run (probably on the treadmill?) 12x2min hills at 10% grade with 2 mile warm up and 2 mile cooldown. I weirdly love hill workouts so I’m a little overeager.
Do you like snow? (I only like snow when I’m snowboarding or visiting someplace that is supposed to be snowy, not at home)
Favorite healthy meal?
