Social Hour

by Meghann on June 18, 2013

You know it’s a good day when…

You get an email at 2:00pm saying there’s an ice cream social going on downstairs.

Thank you, building management! You rock!

They had a “build you own ice cream bar” bar where you got to pick the ice cream base, the chocolate dip, and the toppings. I went with vanilla, dipped in dark chocolate, and covered in nuts. It was a yummy afternoon treat!

After being in the field for the last 5 days, it felt funny to return to a desk. As much as traveling wears me out, I do love being in the field. I’m already counting down the days (30!) until I leave for my next race!

I wasted no time diving into my regular routine. Up at 5:30, on the bike trainer by 5:45, and out for a run by 6:45. I packed a mean sandwich for lunch (currently obsessed with Boar’s Head Chipotle Chicken Breast and sliced asiago cheese) and my swim bag for the afternoon.

I was on my own for swim tonight as my team met that morning. The pool felt empty and quiet, I thought that would relax me, but I missed the distractions of the crowds. It was a struggle to stick with my swim, I definitely wasn’t feeling it today. :/

  • 300 warm-up
  • 8 x 100 w/ 20 seconds rest
  • 8 x 200 w/ 20 seconds rest
  • Total: 2700 yds

Not a fan of this workout. It was too repetitive and tedious for my taste.

My amazing husband already had dinner all prepped when I got home. We have a pretty sweet routine going: I call him when I leave the pool and give him a heads up on the plans for dinner. He starts chopping and prepping and I put it all together when I get home.

Tonight he snapped the green beans, chopped the tomatoes, shredded the cheese, and whisked the eggs. I mixed it all together, added the spinach, and put it in the oven to make a fritatta. It was a team effort. 🙂

Eggs are the perfect easy dinner. Not a lot of fuss and always delicious. I paired my serving with steamed green beans and a piece of whole wheat toast slathered in pumpkin butter.

I love brinner! 🙂

Now it’s time to catch up on my ABC Family shows. Switched at Birth is officially my favorite show on tv right now. LOVE it!
