Although this was a slow run, it was just what I needed to get back into the week.

Had a nice lunch yesterday with the boo at Red's Icehouse on Shem Creek. The weather was gorgeous, the food was delish, and the view was amazing. We even saw some dolphins swimming along! This picture doesn't really do it justice, as the plastic shield kind of gets in the way. We ate outside at the bar area, which has plastic "windows" for when it's not as warm.

I had a meeting after work last night that ran over, so we had a quick dinner when I got home. Baked flounder with Herbs de Provence, and a stir fry veggie medley for me (basically all of the veggies I had in the fridge that were extremely close to going bad). Sauteed some snow peas and shitake mushrooms in olive oil and minced garlic, then threw in some slivered almonds and salt. Yum!

I usually always bake my fish in an aluminum foil "basket" to lock in the juices and keep the fish moist and tasty. The bf's fish was perfect, but I think mine cooked a bit too long as I only had one filet and he had two. But, it was still a good dinner.

Then I got surprised with a dozen white roses for an early VDay! Will share the pictures tonight when I post about this morning's run...

Our night was very chill, cleaned up the apartment in preparation for our company this weekend, the bf's Army buddy and his gf from Maine! They should be arriving this afternoon and will be staying until Sunday. Then my Nana from Virginia will be stopping by Sunday evening on her way to GA. Busy weekend ahead!

Not to mention the 5 miles tomorrow and the 15 miles I have to do Sunday. The longest I have ever run was 18 miles and I think it was actually on my birthday last year. But I don't really count it because I walked a significant amount of it. Probably one of my worst "runs"ever! So if all goes well on Sunday, I will be feeling pretty good with myself. Fingers crossed!

Happy Friday everyone! More tonight with split times from this morning's 3 miler with 5x100m sprints.

  1. Those snow peas look so green and yummy!

    Good luck with the 15 miles and have a fabulous weekend with your company.

  2. Oh! Forgot to mention that I also added three huge handfulls of baby spinach to the stir fry! Made it extra green!

  3. Hey - those are my paces! Yeay!

    Have fun with the 15 this weekend :)
