Shane and I hit up the Downtown YMCA last night and did a good hour and a half workout. He played racquetball with his friend while I lifted free weights, did some ab work on the mat, and did a bunch of the leg machines. Afterwards, I ran 1.5 miles at an 8.5mi pace. I don't usually do really long runs until race day, so you'll notice I normally keep it between 1-3 miles. This has also helped me to work on my speed. I started trying this technique last spring, and I ran my best time ever last June at the Harbortown 5K. I finished in 25:52, and was stoked! I am ready to kick it in high gear and beat that record this year. If you're in Memphis and have never run the Harbortown 5K, you should seriously try it. It is so much fun. It is my hands down favorite 5K that I do. I've done it for the last 8 years. They haven't started their sign up yet, but it is usually the first Friday night in June at 7:00pm. You can check out their past 5K's here. I usually get a pretty nice size group together to run it, and this is us last year. I designed and had some tank tops made for us too. It is usually so hot and humid in June in Memphis, so yes we proudly sported the tank tops lol. And in case you were wondering, yes that is our friend wearing the jorts. We all joked about wearing them to be funny, but he was the only one brave enough to follow through. You can just call him Joe Dirt. = ) Oh yeah, Mel and I will be hosting a Running Gear Linkup next Tuesday, so stay tuned for that. We'll show you our favorite running tops, compression pants, armbands, etc.
After Shane and I left the gym last night, I was craving something light but filling. I absolutely love guacamole, and homemade is the best. I used to really hate it because I'd only had the storebought kind, but now I'm hooked. The best part is that it only requires 6 ingredients. Avocados, tomato, onion, lemon or lime juice and cilantro. If I'm short on ingredients, I'll make it with just avocado, tomato and onion, but the cilantro and lemon or lime juice really add some great kick to it! I usually just cut up two avocados and smash them a little, add in diced tomato, diced onion (white or red), squeeze some fresh lemon or lime juice and then add some salt and pepper. There is really no exact measurement for each item, I just add what looks right and then taste it to see if I need more. I picked up the avocado below from Miss Cordelias last night and am thinking it must be my good luck charm. In addition to the guacamole, I had a spinach mix salad last night with bacon, walnuts, boiled eggs and blue cheese on it. I just used a little olive oil for the dressing. Simple, but good, especially with the guacamole! Now, I'll leave you with my good luck charm and some pictures to make you hungry. Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by today!!
