I ran today for the first time in over a month. I was inspired by the one day of nice weather we had here in Philly today. I would have run outside but the city budget cuts have resulted in our part of the city being completely ignored after the recent snow/ice. So our streets are still death defyingly dangerous to even walk on, let alone run on. But oh man, even on the treadmill, the run was GREAT! It was such a rush, why did I stop running again? I forget...
Anyhow, it was the most amazing run! My stomach muscles are in knots, my shoulders were all tight and my knees were absolutely burning....it was AWESOME! I think I'm over that 30 Day Shred/elliptical phase I was in.
My cardio craze is back on! But this time, I'm really going to make more of an effort to keep mixing in some weight training. Because it really is more effective at burning more calories for a longer period of time. And because it makes me feel really badass.
On the menu tonight: tofu, shrimp and veggie stir fry and tofu squares with homemade plum sauce. Andrew liked the plum sauce so much he asked for more tofu. He's one of those guys who is afraid if he eats too much tofu it will increase his estrogen levels and turn him into a woman so it MUST have been good if he asked for seconds!
Tomorrow is our morning gym day so early to bed for me!
