I was really excited to come home and have my peanut noodle leftovers for dinner tonight. I ate them cold and I don’t know why I did. They definitely tasted a lot better heated. I was just impatient and hungry. I’m always starving when I walk in the door. I think it’s a mental thing because I always have a snack at 3pm, so I shouldn’t be famished at 5:30. With the noodles, I made some Brussels sprouts. I just recently learned that they are called Brussels sprouts and not Brussel sprouts. Did you know that? I boiled them until they turned bright green and then mixed them with some olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese. Nom.
While I digested, I popped in a Dexter DVD. I have two more discs to go in Season 3. Jason has seen the whole season already so I’m trying to finish them so we can get other movies. From Netflix, obv. I wanted to watch another episode when the first was done, but I made myself go to the gym. I did not want to run in the worst way. So I made a deal with myself. If I ran a mile in the fastest time possible, I could do the arc trainer for 30 minutes afterward and not run. And then I proceeded to run a mile in 8:46! This is the fastest that I have ever run a mile!! I am normally a 10 minute miler, if that. Woo woo. I thought about running more, but didn’t. I feel kind of aimless without a training plan. I sort of go into the gym with a set number of miles in my head, but don’t feel the sense of urgency to complete them as if I was training for something. I guess I could just sign up for another race. Or just train for a fake race?
Slow week here. I’m going to shower and watch more Dexter.
