Friday Bike Ride
Friday Workout: 2 mile walk, 6 mile bike ride
So… instead of running I walked 2 miles this morning. I was tired and haven’t been feelin early morning running lately. However, my legs and arms feel FANTASTIC after drinking a recovery shake last night after my BodyPump class! I pushed myself just as hard at this class as the previous one, but my legs feel fine today! My body definitely needs the extra protein after those classes and I’m so happy I’m not crazy sore today.
Last night, the parents, Colby and I went for Mexican food at one of my favorite restaurants. It is SO GOOD there and so affordable! The restaurant was having their 2nd year anniversary this week and last night was buy one dinner entree, get one free! YESSSSSSS
Vegetarian Quesadilla! Seriously the best thing ever!
This morning on our 2 mile walk:
Colby reluctantly posing on our walk. Come on boy, gotta smile for the blog :)
Now THAT is how you pose for your walking picture!
When it was time for lunch, I was very excited to try an “Oh She Glows” recipe: Vegetable and Endamame Pasta with Basil Cream Sauce Angela always has the best recipes and food pictures on her blog, so I was happy to try out this Basil/Avocado sauce she used for this recipe!
I ended up keeping the grilled veggies separate from the pasta with basil/avocado sauce. I ate SO much of this and it was very goooood! It was so nice having a “cream” like sauce without any dairy.
After lunch, I went for a bike ride with my Dad. Remember my little girl purple Specialized bike that has a youth sized frame and kick stand???
You know you love it.
The park we went to this afternoon for our bike ride. I love this park and used to run here all the time. There is a trail that goes from this parking lot that is great for running, but only totals at 3 miles when you get back to the car. I used to run this all the time when I was new to running. Now it seems crazy to do that out and back a few times.
My little girl bike stats. I wore my heart rate monitor, but I think 268 calories seems high for the short ride. I’m thinking it was more like 200 calories.
I was starving when I got back and cut up a peach and put raspberries, blueberries and a strawberry together with dark chocolate balsamic. I was craving something sweet so I thought this was better than the Tastykake I really wanted…
But then I came upstairs and finished these off while typing this post…
Ammmmazing Sunny Seed Drops! These are seriously addictive.
Believe it or not, this pink princess is going fishing tomorrow with the boyfriend’s family. That’s right. Fishing. Not sure if I will even touch a live fish, but I can hold the fishing rod and pose for pictures. Oh, and wear a bathing suit and work on the tan. Poor Colby.
