My Saturday morning started with me waking up at 6:30am with a nearly broken neck. I fell asleep on my sofa on Friday night and was definitely positioned in a strange way. I made my way over to my bed hoping to get a little more sleep but that didn’t happen…I was in way too much pain.
I had a slow start to my morning – watched a few episodes of Wentworth (I’m finished all three seasons – this show is seriously SO GOOD), ate some toast, drank a mochaccino, tidied up, and then finally headed out for a run when my neck felt back to normal. I ran a happy 8 miles and stopped off at a few grocery stores on my way home looking for this:
Who knew sambal oelek was so hard to find?! Both Whole Foods and Loblaws didn’t have it so I popped into M2M, a Korean grocery store not too far from me, and they had it! I needed it to make this General Tao Tofu. This recipe came out amaaaaaaazing. I liked it even better than the Lentil Dhal I made/reviewed a couple of weeks ago. No pictures because I threw it into containers for lunches this week. I’ll probably make it again this weekend so I’ll post soon!
After some food prep and dish washing, I awaited the arrival of my cousins who came over to hang out and watch a movie. They don’t look like sisters at all, hey? 😉
We decided to go with BRIDESMAIDS. One of my cousins hadn’t seen it yet (I know, I know) and that’s one movie I didn’t mind watching again!
Sunday morning started with a shorter run (4 miles). Since I’ve been heart rate training for the last little while, I haven’t really been running fast. I decided to try and push myself a little bit just to see where I was at and how much work I have ahead of me when I decide to start adding speed work to my schedule again. I was pretty pleased at my average pace, though I did pause my watch a few times at stoplights. I may not be the fastest person out there BUT it’s nice to know I can still kind of move my legs like I used to.
After lunch and a shower, I headed downtown to exchange a few things at Adidas and came home with these (in a boy’s 6.5 because they were sold out of women’s AND they were cheaper!) :
Then met my mom to do a Home Sense run. I was looking for a lamp and came home with an elephant… You know, necessities.
And then we came back to my place to hang out/eat/watch TV for a little while before she headed home!
Basically my weekends involve running, eating, shopping, family, and prepping for the week ahead. Maybe boring to some…but perfect to me.
Hope you weekend was great and that your week is off to a good start!
