Maybe I’m a bit weird, but I was totally digging this dreary weather we had last week/weekend.I don’t know what it is about the rain, but sometimes it just makes me feel cozy… even if I’m at work. I am also welcoming the cool morning and evening temps with wide open arms. Not losing my body weight in sweat is magical.
This weekend, I started working on my post regarding running fasted. It has a little bit of science, many cited articles, and a lot of personal experience. Keep an eye out for it later this week!
I also cooked (gasp) my famous vegan butternut squash lasagna over the weekend. Recipe to come. I love how filling and healthy it is, with the added bonus of warming me up during the work day. Nothing says fall like hot food for lunch!
In addition to my lasagna, I made some date balls, because who can watch the Giants play on Sunday without some game time snacks!?
Running last week went well. I moved my long run to Thursday night afterwork. I was hoping to get some miles in outside before moving to the treadmill, but as I pulled out of work, the rain started and I just didn’t want to risk it. Therefore, I ran 15 gloriously (long) miles on the treadmill after work. Talk about crazy.
Friday was relaxing. A short day at work led to an evening full of errands/laundry/cleaning. That way, my weekend was totally free. I also went to SoulCycle. Why oh why is it so addicting, and why oh why do I find the clothes so damn necessary?!? Friday night Will and I saw The Martian. Highly recommend.
Saturday I was able to visit with my best from college. It’s been far too long and we decided we were far overdue for some food and good old fashion gossip. Just keeping it real.
Afterwards I braved the tropic winds and watched Wills rugby team. Post-game warm comfort foods were a must so I indulged in some noodles at a new to me place in Fairfield called Mecha. Amazing. And so different from what I usually eat, it was a nice change of pace.
Sunday was full of relaxation. Will and I watched Homeland and The Leftovers and of course indulged in Sunday football, topping the night off eating our homemade pizza. One of these times I will actually get creative and add more than just veggies to the top… maybe…
This weekend went by way too fast, but the good ones usually do. Here’s to hoping for another quick week. Oh, and my final peak week of NYCM training!
Happy Monday : )
