Lettuce Lover & Speed Demon

Remember the snowy picture from yesterday's post?

Where did the snow go? I'm not complaining at all since I truly dislike snow. Yet, for such a mess of a storm, it melted insanely quick! Welcome back, Spring!

By the way, this week must be my week! Not only did I kill it on the maniac mile yesterday, but I did fabulous on my short run today too.

5 miles in under 46 minutes!? The last time I saw a number like that was in July (44 minutes and some change is my PR). This run even included hills at the end of every mile. What's really funny is that I've been pooped all day! I was complaining to Peter about how drained I felt and then I pull numbers like this. Now, my energy level is through the roof!!!

I've been all about one-upping myself this week. I wonder if I can push it to 45 minutes tomorrow? I almost want to skip my trail run just to challenge myself on speed for another day. Ah, choices! I get so bored on the treadmill, but I am able to push myself harder to finish faster! It will be a last minute decision, I'm sure.

Anyway, I've been such a salad freak this week. In the last 48 hours, I've had 3 salads, 2 of which were consumed today. I've been craving fresh veggies like crazy and I can make one hell of a savory salad!

This salad, which I had for lunch, contained spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, red peppers, onions, shredded mozzarella, chopped almonds, zesty Italian dressing, and AVOCADO (my favorite thing right now). Shortly following this meal, we were given catered food from Brother's Pizza. While everyone chowed down on cheese pizza, I grabbed a plate of salad. This one wasn't as magnificent as the one I made for lunch, but definitely helped satisfy my intense salad craving.

I probably would have made myself another one for lunch tomorrow if it hadn't been for us having spaghetti leftovers. I think I'll manage because the spaghetti we had for dinner tonight was delicious! Thanks Peter :).

What's your short run distance? 
Mine is 5, looking to up it to 6.

Do you try to run faster on the treadmill to avoid boredom and finish quickly?

What's your favorite salad?


  1. I love salads too! The one in the picture you made looks pretty delicious. :)

    1. Thanks! And it was! I usually like adding chicken, but the avocado did the trick!
