We had some chihuahua drama last night when Miko left is teddy bear on Leela’s favorite bed.
Leela does not like anyone disturbing her nap time, especially bouncy, playful Miko. He wanted his teddy bear, but did not want to suffer the Leela wrath and pouted at me until I caved and grabbed his toy for him.
Such a sad face. He crashed later with me after intense play sessions on the couch working through the final season of Nurse Jackie.
Whew, it’s been a busy week with tons of stress and drama at work tough to not take home. But Sunday’s scenic trail run was a great way to start the week.
It wasn’t a fast run since it was on hilly trails, but not shabby and the views were worth it!
But also hot, it was a high of 80 that day and a reminder that summer and triple digit heat is coming and my weekend long runs will need to shift to first thing in the mornings soon.
It’s tough to fit in long runs during the week with my work schedule. I have to leave the house at 7am and I’m not that much of a morning person to cram in a very early run and shower before! So weekday runs are usually speed work on a treadmill after a busy day at work. It’s going to be interesting adding longer weekday runs in for marathon training, I might try going to the gym after work 4 days a week to alternate longer runs with cross-training and weights. But hey, it will be a great way to blow off work stress!
Check out the tomato plants in the AeroGarden after just 10 days!
Crazy, they actually look like tomato plants already!
Yesterday I ventured to Costco after work to load up on fruits and veggies and I’m always amazed at the new vegan products showing up including Vega and Orgain Vegan protein powders, vegan apple pies in the bakery sections, ready made quinoa dishes, and even Larabars now.
The House Foods tofu is great for easy, throw together dinners in a wok with a firm texture, low calorie, and good source of protein.
I simmered it with sweet potato, pepper, carrots, and chopped broccoli in a curry oil free stir fry which took 10 minutes.
Perfect since my patience was wearing thin after a crazy work day and shopping! Sweet Miko was happy to share sweet potato and carrot nibbles.
How do you cram in running around your work schedule?
