All day yesterday was spent on the couch, and drinking lots of this.
I had a little pinch in my throat, and I didn’t want to get REALLY sick.
And I did buy 2 tons of green grapes, because they were super delicious and on sale!
After all the resting and grape eating, I was looking forward to date night! But first hubs charmed his way into getting me to help grind 40lbs of chicken.
He’s so romantic.
Once we were finished with the grinding,we were ready for some sushi!
It’s a new place than just opened the day before, and they served us the biggest tuna nigiri pieces ever. I had to take 2 bites, because they were so big.
The spicy hamachi was amazing! I loved how they left big chunks and just drizzled the spicy sauce over the roll. Usually they mash the fish into a paste sorta and mix the sauce with the fish.
And the Fairfield roll was just delicious!
We finished off date night with some delicious ice cream. I went with salted caramel.
When I woke up this morning I was ready to run! The pinch in my throat went away, and I was feeling really good.
11 miles went by pretty quick!
My long runs are on a hilly road, really hilly. In fact it’s call “hill born”. And it was windy. But I just put one foot in front of the other and trudged on. I looked forward to the turn around at 5.5 miles and the 7 mile mark when I ate my gu.
I think I like the espresso love the most! But the peanut butter is a close second. It really does taste like peanut butter.
Once I was showered, I whipped up a quick egg sandwich, and did some compressing.
Then headed to “puppy playtime” at work. I brought Freya, and she was EXACTLY as crazy as I told everyone she would be.
She basically “checked” all the dogs especially the largest ones. She did this by barking frantically at them and trying to be dominant and humping them. I just smiled and walked away.
Now that Freya was all worn out, I headed here to pick up some shoes. Freya came in with me and cuddled with all the sales people.
** side note, you can pretty much bring your dog into any store that doesn’t serve food. Just being a doggy bag to pick up any messes. Or better yet, take them potty before going in. This is great socialization for puppies and adults alike.**
They had a $9.99 deal on flip flops. I thought they would be perfect for compression sock wearing days.
I also got Carlo a pair in the men’s version (he wears man-sized shoes now!) And the second pair were 1/2 off! Both pairs for $15! I was beyond excited!
I was very much in need of a nap after all that fun.
