This week is going to be pretty picture heavy as I post about some random highlights from my week.
For this training cycle I'm trying to do one shorter run and one longer run on the trail each week. Some runs are going to happen on the treadmill depending on the weather and how busy the week is. This past week was pretty busy but fun.
Sunday I did 5 treadmill miles at home. I should have went outside but I was being lazy. Then Thursday I headed back to the trail.
This week's trail run was SO MUCH different different than last weeks. I had sunny skies for all 5 miles and not a drop of rain. I was pro-active and decided to run only 5 miles instead of 6 because I wasn't sure I'd be able to finish 6 miles before the sun went down. I got my 5 miles completed just in time.
We are working on a home project so my cross training this week consisted of packing and carrying boxes (and furniture) up and down steps. It may not seem like a workout but believe me, it WAS!
Other fun things from the week.........
I made home made
authentic Restaurant style Chinese food for dinner this week. I'm a huge fan of Chicken and Broccoli at our local Chinese restaurant and have been wanting to try to make it myself. I found some recipes online and tweaked them. Not to toot my own horn but it turned out AMAZING! Even Scott couldn't believe how good it was. I'll try to post the recipe later.
I got a new book this week! I have been wanting this book by Victoria Beckham for years now! My intention was to look for it at the library instead of buying it but I never did. One evening Scott was shopping on Amazon and feeling pretty generous so he invited my friend and I each to to pick something out we wanted. Of course I picked a book!
It was time to change the background on my work computer from Christmas labs to something more seasonally appropriate. I found this one with the lab and the rose and fell in love. It reminded me of my old lab. It makes me smile!
Speaking of work, I had a student come in the other day to make up a presentation she missed. Her presentation was on visiting Orlando. One of her slides was on Disney world and she had plenty of pictures. As I looked more closely I saw a familiar one.
It was a picture of my sister and my mom riding bikes on the path at Disney World. It was posted on our blog a few years back. When I saw it I had to laugh and asked her where she found the picture. She said she just found it through a Google search. Isn't that something? What are the chances!
Okay, I guess that's enough randomness for the week! What were some of your random highlights this week? -M
