No Y this morning since I am not lifting or swimming. I actually slept in until a little after 7!! I wanted to do an easy run today. I finally understand what easy run means. Running always used to be hard, no matter what the distance LOL! Today I did a slow jog and kept it at that pace for 3 miles. Usually I do intervals or push the last 1/2 mile or so (sometimes because I want to finish), but today I just kept a steady slow pace and it was kind of refreshing rather than tiring. Interesting…..
Came back to some pumpkin oats topped with Fig Almond Spread. Yum! These oats I have now are a bit different than the usual brand, almost thicker – so they take up less volume and makes the pumpkin seem like a lot more than the usual 1/2 cup.
Did work with the business since my job was a little slow this morning due to the holiday holdover. Then came in for lunch.
Chobani mixed with Barleans Omega Swirl instead of honey (which turned it purple!), chopped strawberries, and Fiber One cereal.
I have shown closeups of the garden, but here is a picture of my house on the whole.
That’s it for yard space. We have absolutely no back yard, as there is a shop attached onto the back of the house (where there probably was a back yard at some point, presumably). So, I get to garden around the front and to the side. It’s a very big old house, 100 years old. Bigger than 2 of us need. I actually like it a lot, but it is on a busy street. We only bought it because of the shop on the back.
Finally had work to do, and then it was snack time!
I also made some fresh pesto with porch basil!
I incorporated that into what was supposed to be an omelet, but turned out more like scrambled eggs. Pretty tasty, though.
So, I am going to be working late tonight since it was so slow this morning. That is one thing that stinks about working on a productivity basis.
Only doing the run today made me really realize how much time this training has taken up during my week for the last few months. I think I am going to enjoy this rest week!
Question: What do you do with bonus time during the day when it comes by surprise?
