Not So Fast…Track Tuesday

First…yesterday was the most traffic on my blog to date. Appearantly you like a broken toe and quinoa…weirdos! I kid. It truly means the world to me that you have taken time to read my blog…thank you!


Track Tuesday:

I met some of my track group for a speed session.

Everyone is racing in 6 days, so the group did an easier workout.

4×200 (200 recovery)
3×400 (400 recovery)
2×200 (200 recovery)
Cool Down

My workout was even easier. I just jogged in the slow lane:(


My broken toe acyually felt a little better than yesterday and I ran 7 miles.  At least my Saucony Kinvara 5’s are pretty.

We went to breakfast together afterwards…woo hoo!


There’s nothing better than a breakfast with sweaty runners!

It must have been the coffee, because I headed back out for 2 more miles. Best part, I was able to run them at a 9 minute pace.  Progress!

My amazing friend (and Naughty By Nature teammate) Corrie brought me a get well present…she is THE BEST and knows me all too well!!!


The day was uneventful…chores and errands.

Dinner on the other hand was pretty stellar.  Coconut milk veggie masala over basmati rice for dinner. It’s so good, but my indian food never looks very pretty.



We’ve been working on plans to redo our patio for a few months. Today, we finalized our selections and we have a start date. And, on top of that…my new planters arrived. They’ve been back ordered for months. It’s as if they knew we were going to need them for our new backyard space! Kismet.


Even with a bum foot…


Indian Food…yes or no? My husband loves it. I’m a work in progress.
How are your speed workouts going this week?

      I just threw this one together. Next time I make it, I’ll make sure to write the recipe and take pics. I’m still learning how to make indian food.

    Jen, NO one likes a broken toe!! HA! Folks just like you and your blog, I think. :) I’m glad you were able to run a bit; hang in there. I do like Indian food, and my recipes always look a little messy…doesn’t that make it taste better, though? Hope you’re having a great day and thanks for sharing your joy!
