Monday…Equals Runday!!!

August 4, 2009

Why!!!! Why, why, why…do I insist on sitting awake until 3am in the morning (well I was working till 1.30!?) when I know full well I am not going to be a very happy chappy at 8am…especially on a MONDAY!!!

I most definately not a happy chappy…especially when I awoke to an unalarmed alarm clock, stating that it was 8.23am!!!!!????? Ohhhhh….fiddlesticks!!!! Not a good way to start the day!!!

Luckily I had prepared….gym bag SORTED, eats SORTED…GO GO GO!!!!

Breakfast was a somewhat un-eventful bowl of museli with banana….and protein powder!!! It was a good-un…but not quite worthy of a photo!!!

Man….my day was boring…..

It’s lunch time already!!! An English Muffin with 1 egg, scrambled….and ketchup!!! You just CAN NOT have egg without the ketchup!!! In true loser style….I neglected to take a photo…AGAIN!!!!???

I was determined I was gonna make it to my running club today…I missed BOTH sessions last week!!! Booo!! I left work…BANG on 6, and power walked to the gym!!!

Phew….made it!!!

Today was track…2 miles run to the running track, 10 minutes (allegedly) speed work (2mins fast, 30 secs recovery, 1.5mins fast, 30 secs recovery, 1min fast, 30 secs recovery, 30secs fast, 30secs recovery and back to the top again…inverted pyramid styleee) It was SUPER HARD WORK…I really struggled!! And the fact that a guy from my year at school had joined in my absence, who runs a stonking 6 minute mile did not help…he lapped me 3 times!!!???? The 2 miles back to the gym was sheer HELL too, and I even gave in to the walk I am ashamed to say!!???

Still 5+ miles….50 minutes, a nice little cardio effort I feel!!! Mostly I am just happy to be back pounding the pavement…a week is waaay tooo long!!!

Came home and whipped up a yummy stir fry…


Broccoli with looong stems…thats my favourite bit, green beans, mushrooms, quorn chicken preces and garlic….


With egg noodles, and a drizzle of soy sauce!!! Geeez…my tastebuds are quite literally in heaven at the moment….why is it that I crave greasy, yucky food so much…when this tastes SO GOOD!!!!!

oooo….and I also had a yummy yoghurt concoction….but with melon and strawberries today!!! Another lush addition to my day!!! 🙂

I am determined now…with only 4 weeks TODAY till my fabulous holiday…Ibiza stylee…I MUST STAY ON TRACK!!!
