Surf & Turf Sunday

I  hope you’re having a great Labor Day Weekend!

Although the weather has been wet and stormy this weekend, mine is going well!  I woke up early Saturday and after fueling with banana pancakes, I headed out for an 8 mile run on a local rail trail.   I like running my long runs on rail trails because, literally, where we live it seems everywhere else is a hill run! I don’t have to try to do hills, I have to seek out flat runs!  Anyway, I was really pleased with my run and paced myself well.

Things that keep me going

Ipod – keeps me pumped up and on my target pace IMG_20130829_093558_332

H20 – must have.  I love this brand and it’s BPA-free!


Watch (Garmin forerunner)

Wrist bands

Foam roller (for recovery)


I didn’t rest after my run because I had to bring my little one to swim class.  I love seeing him so excited trying to reach for colorful balls

and then feeling glad when he doesn’t want to leave the pool!

We made sure to grab a snack after the lessons.  Justin’s almond butter is SO good.  Perfect portion size, too!


Tomato-cucumber-chicken salad

We came home and I made an easy tomato-cucumber-chicken salad.


Tomato-Cucumber Chicken Salad

  • 1 chopped vine ripened tomato
  • sliced cucumber
  • shredded chicken
  • pepper
  • 1 T olive oil


I was not sore, thanks to foam rolling!  I got up early and breakfast was super simple!



I was off  to the gym for a strength training workout before church by 7:30.  My muscles felt great!

Lunch was a simple protein salad…



and dinner was surf & turf!


scallops, steak and sautéed zucchini
