Lazy Friday

No training for me today. I sat in bed with the pig ninjas and read. So nice! Since my training is nonexistent today, I will give you a very nice story from Saturday. Saturday morning we decided to go to brunch, but I wanted to get a run in beforehand. I decided to start running toward the restaurant while Luke finished getting ready and he would pick us (us= Ash + pig ninjas) up on the way. Well, I was trying to run fast since I didn't have much time. Made it about a mile and then I was suddenly airborne and then on my belly. Full on eating pavement. I made a loud OOOOOF sound and a group of pedestrians in front of me screamed. No joke! One lady had her hands to her cheeks and was screaming, Home Alone-style. A couple of cars stopped. Nice fall, Ash! Anyway, I got up eventually, after I got over the daze and kept trucking. Luke picked me up on the next block. Bloodied and bruised knees and elbows, but I didn't break anything or hit my face. Success! I used to fall down all the time when I was a little kid and always had bruised and scraped knees. Why does it hurt so much more now? Maybe because I have 80 pounds on my 6 year old self?

Last night I was very not-Paleo. I had two sangrias (normally I love sangria. These were not so good) at the museum function, then we went to an Italian pastry shop and I ate an eclair. It was divine! There is nothing better than an excellent eclair or cream puff. Unfortunately, they are frequently dry. Not this one! Woke up this morning feeling super dehydrated. Not sure if the sugar and/or alcohol was a factor but ugh. On the sleeping front, however, I've been doing really well. No insomnia. Weird, weird dreams, going double date camping with Luke and his ex-gf and her bf.

We go to the farmers market and grocery store (if necessary) every Saturday morning. Usually we have plenty of produce left over on Friday for lunch. Not this week! The fridge was totally empty today because I have been scarfing it! Had to stop by Whole Foods on the way to work. I had a tough time decided what to get. Hit up the salad bar, grabbed some fruit, some sushi (with brown rice. Not paleo but not terrible), and some more Larabars. Have I discussed how delicious Larabars are? They're amazing. Whole Foods had a ton of flavors, so I picked up a few I've never had before. Also picked up a bar of super dark chocolate. Not paleo but the chocolate cravings have been calling. This was a good lesson in how important it is to prep food at home. I spent way more money than I would have had I been prepared. Farmers Market tomorrow.

We get a big CSA (community supported agriculture) box each week from a local, organic farm. It has usually 12-15 items. Only $25! We've had a hard time eating all of it, since it's for a family of 4 and there are only 2 of us and only 1 of us eats the majority of it. I had decided a while ago to drop our subscription to once every other week, but now I'm thinking about keeping it every week since I'm eating so much produce. Except cabbage. I hate cabbage. Anyone want the cabbage I always wind up getting? Anyone? Bueller?

  1. Oh my gosh... I totally did that same fall last year on vacation with one of my girl friends. I went for a run by myself before she got up and totally face planted in front of a bunch of pedestrians and cars! Bloody knees, hands and chin. Total ego zapper! Hope your scabs are feeling better now! It does hurt WAY worse the older you get!
