My workouts have no real rhyme or reason. I try to balance them “easy day, hard day, easy day, hard day.” Sometimes running is easy, sometimes it’s hard. It just depends on how I feel. The same with biking and Body Pump and even yoga. Thus, the only real guideline I follow is don’t do hard days back to back!
So point of my story is: yesterday was hard, so today is easy!
Just a little biking around town. I biked with Matt to run an errand at the bank and then over to the bakery
Where I ran into Grizzly the Bear dressed as Peter Cottontail! Ha!!
Things are really coming along!! Testing out a new thumbnail gallery – click to enlarge!
I had intended to help Matt move some of the equipment around, but I literally picked up one heavy thing, put it down and “Elvis has left the building!’” Heavy lifting is not for me. Unless I’m in Body Pump!
Once I biked back home, I made lunch at 1PM -
My daily green salad – spinach, peppers, ground flax, sunflower seeds, buckwheat, cranberries, olive oil, honey, salt
And a lovely little sandwich
Pestos with Panache by Lauren sent me a few samples – and they are amazing! I have 4 unique flavors to test out, but I started with Fabulous Fig & Gorgonzola. Slightly sweet from the fig and tangy from the cheese with all the underlying flavor of a basil pesto. I’m hoping I might be able to offer these on special through OpenSky! They come fresh frozen though, so shipping might be a challenge.
I spread it on tempeh with cucumber on High Five bread – it was kickin’ good!
Three chocolate almonds [from Whole Foods] for dessert : )
Hey Cville friends – This weekend is a big Oyster Roast at Devil’s Backbone – want to join us!? 1-7pm. $10 tickets.
Looking for something to do this Saturday? Head out to the Devil’s Backbone Brewing Company‘s concert grounds in Nelson County and spend the day enjoying fresh steamed and raw oysters, local craft beer from Devil’s Backbone and Starr Hill as well as select wines from Cardinal Point Winery. In addition, The Rock Barn will be providing locally made hot dogs, brauts and a sweet grits bar! In keeping with earth-friendly habits, all oysters served at the festival have been harvested from Ward Oyster Company’s Aquaculture program and all oyster shells will be recycled to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation‘s many oyster restoration projects!
Hopping back on my bike to make a 3:30 meeting back across town. It’s time for another Cville Podcast with Mikey B!
