Thursday Night Speed

by Meghann on August 11, 2011

Lordy, lordy, I’m exhausted. I can barely keep my eyes open to type this. ๐Ÿ™‚

This afternoon I once again had my booty handed to me at the Tampa Tri Team Thursday night speed workout.

We started with a a .75 mile warm up, then moved to four rounds of a 400 lap at a 5k pace followed by an 800 lap at a 10k pace, and finished with a .75 cool down. I haven’t pushed my body that hard to go that fast in a while. I was able to hold my first 400 at a 6:50 pace, but quickly fell after that. I believe my last one was somewhere around a 7:45. My 800 started at a 7:45 pace and fell to an 8:30 at the end. I need to work on that.

I finished with just over 4 miles under my belt. Not bad for a Thursday night.

Before meeting with the team, I had a Kashi Bar.

By the time I got home I was sweaty, stinky and STARVING. I asked Derek to help start dinner while I took a quick shower. It should be noted that he jokingly declined from the couch when I asked and I started crying tears of hunger. Don’t mess with hangry Meghann.

Derek came through and chopped up some carrots and onion while I got in the shower. We really had no plan for dinner, I just knew I wanted carrots. We both stared at the pan, then opened the fridge to see what we could add.

Mushrooms? Sure.

Leftover Chickpeas? Toss them in.

Then Derek saw some eggs and suggest we add a few eggs as well.

That’s how we ended up with this.

I finished the plate off with a piece of toast, spinach, cheese, and hot sauce. Yum.

I had the last of the Keylime Pie Frozen Yogurt for Dessert.

My eyelids are getting heavier. I need to go to bed now.

Good Night!

Grilled Peanut Butter, Bacon, and Apple Sandwich

August 11, 2011

One of the many things The Bricks of Ybor is famous for is the Peanut Butter Bar section of their menu. It’s basically a ‘build-your-own’ peanut butter sandwich section complete with pickles, fluff, cream cheese, and anything else you could think of. While Courtney and I were deciding what to order yesterday, we had fun more ยป

Test Set: Month 3

August 11, 2011

Good Morning. ๐Ÿ™‚ Today was a swimming morning. I headed to the pool with every intention of kicking butt in the water. I started off easy, challenged myself with a test set, and finished off with a nice cool down. Swimming success. ๐Ÿ™‚ I like test sets because it’s a good way to judge how more ยป
