Twice as Nice

So did everybody realize that today was 10/11/12?  Some people I talked to had no idea!  How fun is that?  It could also be 1-2-3 if you add the numbers up.  Moving on...

 I had to get a run in today since I didn't go yesterday and tomorrow is my only day I can get in my long run.  I had 5 scheduled.  I decided to go through this small park that is in the middle of my neighborhood.  I have explored it one other time.  It's rather small and the trails really don't go anywhere, but I was really craving a change of scenery.  This added on only about a quarter of a mile, but it was something.  I did the rest of my miles around a cemetery.  The wind was crazy today.  Running against the wind, I could barely move and running with the wind I was going crazy fast and not even realizing it.  I ended up quitting at 4 miles and decided to save my legs a bit for tomorrow considering I still had to go to work and run around for eight hours.  I walked the mile and a half home so I did still get my five miles in.

You can see haw drastically the splits went down!

After my run, I hopped into the shower, changed and headed to the grocery store.  I had no fruit in my house and needed something to eat.  I headed to Aldi.  I get almost all of my produce there.  It is so much cheaper than the grocery story.  I got tons of food for $25!

By the time I got home I was so hungry I felt a little sick.  I heated up some of the refried black beans that I had made the other day and put them on corn tortillas with avocado, lettuce, and tomato.  I used half of the avocado on the tortillas and I mashed up the other half and ate it with some tortilla chips.

After that, I had to hurry and change for work and pack a lunch to take.  I'm trying not to spend money every day that I am there on silly things that I don't need.

Tomorrow I have off, but I have a lot to do!

What are your plans this weekend?
