Sorry, I couldn't think of a name for this post.
Yesterdays workout was:
6 miles on the treadmill in 51:13 I did a speed workout 5x 800m @ 8.0 mph. It was great! Usually by the 4th interval I am tired, sweating and my legs get heavy, but yesterday I finished with energy to spare. I hope that means my legs are getting stronger.
I also did the ab video and attempted to do the 30 day shred, but apparently my dvd player decided to break.... odd that it worked just a couple hours previously... oh well exercise tv it is!
So... I went to Target yesterday and they had Easter candy for 75% off! I paid like .70 a bag!!!
I actually think having all of this candy is a good thing. I am a baker and when I bake it's only my husband and I eating most of it (I bring some to neighbors) but it still leaves a lot. Most recipes make 60 cookies or 24 cupcakes and so over the course of 3 or 4 days, that's a lot of sweets! Now, candy has a longer shelf life, it's nicely prepackaged in those annoying little foil wrappers and it's bite size! Plus, it's so difficult to unwrap you get so frustrated and can only eat 2 at a time!
Do you like my reasoning? Whatever it takes to justify having 5 bags of candy in my possession!
For dinner yesterday I made this:

It is Mac and cheese and is totally to die! You have to try it!
I make a couple adjustments...
I roast the cauliflower instead of boil it.
I also use a 13 oz box of pasta (almost double)
My cauliflower was huge too like 4 lbs.
I used extra cheese too, like a cup.
It is soooo good! It makes a huge dish and we eat it for 2 or 3 days!
What was your workout yesterday?
Do you do speedwork? And, if so, how much of an improvement have you seen in your overall speed?
