It was miserably hot yesterday. Hot and humid. It’s supposed to be like that for the rest of the week. It zaps my motivation like whoa. I really just want to lay around in my air conditioned house all day.
I pushed myself to brave the heat and drive to the gym yesterday, though. The air conditioned gym. I did my usual workout, then finally faced my irrational fear of the treadmill. It wasn’t so bad! I did accidentally select some sort of interval training. So, after a minute or so, the speed basically doubled. I almost flew off the back, but I managed to jump off before I made a fool of myself.
I only ran a mile, though. I had already done 30 minutes on the elliptical and weights. Plus, I had ran the previous two days.
I’m about to get ready to brave the heat and go to the gym this morning. I think I might try to run my full 5k on the treadmill, just to see how it is. So, wish me luck!
There are two things I don’t like about the treadmill, though. The first one is it’s boooring. I’m used to running around town or on a trail. I like looking at stuff! The second is that I don’t know what speed to set it on. I apparently have a hard time running at a constant speed. I guess I need to work on that, so the treadmill might be good for me.
And…. on a totally different topic, my little garden is thriving. I had more lettuce than I knew what to do with and ate fresh spinach every morning for the past three weeks. Now? Now I’m enjoying my green and yellow beans!
Yup. You see those beans? I grew them. They were DELICIOUS, too. I didn’t plant a lot, so I only had enough for one family meal. But, still! It wasn’t bad for a first time gardener. Next year, I know to plant more!
FYI, I just steamed them with some red potatoes. Then, they were tossed with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper, and then baked 400F for like 20 minutes. Om nom nom!!
Megan and I have plans to go cherry picking on Friday. I hope it’s not too hot and it doesn’t rain! We’ve been brain storming recipes, and I’m pretty excited!
Just keep your fingers crossed that the weather holds out!
