So, that speed work I wrote about last night?
Not so much.
After our weights in the morning and a long day, our legs just didn’t have a need for speed.
So, we switched our “long run” and “speed work” this week (same distance) and went for a gorgeous four mile run along the beach.
Not a bad view for a nighttime run, right? It was pretty spectacular. Our average pace was 11:00 (20 seconds per mile faster than we were supposed to, but that was mostly because we decided to race the last 10th of a mile. Anthony won by a long shot.)
After our run, we were famished, so head out to the nearby fish and chips place for some grubba.
We started with a glass of “champers” for me and a bourbon and coke for Ant. Tres chic, no?
Then, I indulged in half a dozen oysters, partly because they were so fresh, and partly because they were so cheap. They were absolutely delicious – and right from Tasmania, so they’re practically “local.”
Then, in keeping with the Australasian theme, I ordered grilled hoki from New Zealand with a side salad.
It was only ok, though the salad was really good.
After dinner, I still felt famished, so I had a rice cake with some almond butter, and called it a night.
It’s so fun to be house-sitting here – it’s like a free vacation!
QOTD: Have you ever wussed out of a workout? Did you make it up or just skip it?
