I stayed up to late last night. Not partying… watching SVU. It was a really good episode and I just couldn’t turn it off. So, due to a rushed morning I couldn’t have oatmeal but I had a fig bran muffin and a banana/almond butter sandwich.
After being at work for a few hours I had two chocolate, fig, and almond bites.
While I knew I was fatigued from yesterday’s tempo run, it was such a gorgeous day today. And with DC weather, who knows how long this will last? So, I wanted to take advantage of it. Plus, as fun as spin class is, I needed to clear my mind today and nothing does that like a good run. I happen to work three blocks from the National Mall, and ran there a lot last fall before we were terrorized by Snowpocalypse. If you run the whole perimeter from in front of the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial, it’s 4 miles around, but you can cut short around the Washington Monument for a three mile loop, which is what I did today. Stats:
- Distance: 3.04 miles
- Elapsed Time: 29:26
- Avg Pace: 9:40/mi
- Calories: 298 cal
I was so jealous of all the tourists having picnics on the mall and leisurely site seeing. On a day like today, I definitely didn’t want to go back to the office. But, alas, girl’s got bills… When I got back I reheated the last of the Penne Arrabbiata.
After lunch, work got RIDICULOUS. I was in frantic meetings all afternoon and completely forgot to eat my snack. When I got home I was starving so I pounded some Ancient Grains cereal and milk.
I’m still pretty beat from this afternoon. There’s a good chance I’ll be working late all next week. I’m going to go relax with a good book. Be back tonight!
