Finally Friday

I don't know how I feel about this whole day off in the middle of the week thing. It kinda throws everything off. Oh well I'm glad it's Friday and I have plans to run an actual long run tomorrow. Not a stop at 8 miles and call it a long run, but like a real one, where my quads are sore afterwards.  We'll see how that goes.  I really need to get on the ball with running again. I've been in the 25 ish mile a week range when I used to easily hit 40.  I blame the heat and my foot. I still get that weird,  heel/ankle pain when I run more and/or faster than normal and the heat just makes every run seem so strenuous to me.  I get frustrated when I'm not running as fast as I like and when it's hot I cannot keep the same paces. I love love love the temps but I don't love them as far as running goes.

Since I've become obsessed with this whole homemade Lara Bar thing I will be going to Dekalb to buy a very very large amount of dates this weekend.  I try to go only every other week because it's so far from my house, plus it's so crowded and it frustrates me, but I can't help and am there every weekend.  I also try to spend less than $100, I can't do that either.  What can I say I really really love produce, olives, quinoa, and 4lb bags of almonds.

egg salad + greens + patriotic plate

Greens+ chicken lunch meat + quinoa salad + grapes

Turkey zucchini meatballs + crispy Kale

All of this hot weather has me craving lighter meals.  Lots and lots of salads, smoothies/protein shakes, and food that is no hotter than room temp.

The sassiest little baby

Have a great weekend!
