Another Monday, and now the first 5-day work week of the year. Ugh. Anybody else have a really difficult time getting back into the work routine? I was exhausted last Thursday when I got home, and I'd only worked 3 days at that point. How am I going to get through these 5 days? We do have a 3-day weekend coming up, and I'm taking my birthday off for a vacation day. So two weeks in a row where I only work 4 days. OK, I'm feeling a little bit better.
Anybody have a good weekend? Last week I ordered Run Fast, Eat Slow with a giftcard my grandfather gave me for Christmas, and I went through the book to look at the recipes. I'm a really picky eater, but I found quite a few recipes I'd like to make, and I'd only have to omit an ingredient, or substitute one in. The breakfast frittatas, for example, call for kale, but I'll swap in fresh spinach instead. I made the Super Hero Muffins, minus the zucchini, and they smelled really good when they were baking. I also made the bison meatballs, with pre made marinara (I cheated!), and they are really good!
After following so many people on social media who were down at Disney for marathon weekend, I got a crazy idea. I'm thinking Princess weekend, 2019, and seeing if I can register for both the 5k and 10k. My own mini challenge. I'd sign up for the 10k first, and then see if the 5k is still available. Crazy? Or typical runner goals?
I'm jumping back into strength training, and my muscles are protesting. A break after my race felt good, but now my muscles are being jolted, and it hurt a little bit being on the treadmill Saturday. I played with the incline setting, to get a feel for San Francisco hills. Now that is definitely crazy. I'm starting to wonder what was I thinking???
I wrapped up the weekend by watching Victoria reruns on PBS. The new season kicks off next Sunday, and I can't wait. Since I only watch a couple shows now, it'll be good to have this back.
