I started off strong and thought I was definitely going to go sub-7, but it wasn't going to happen. My legs were dead from the previous cardio, plus doing some leg weights. I ended up doing it in 7:07. Um...surprise, surprise, that's my body's favorite time ever for one mile. I wasn't too mad though as it still felt like an accomplished workout and I was a sweaty beast to prove it: if that isn't attractive, I don't know what is! haha
We had bought spaghetti squash at the farmer's market yesterday and decided today was the day to try it out. We looked up recipes online and saw a few conflicting methods, but opted to give it a whirl.
halved squash, about to take out the "guts"
Turns out we didn't cook it long enough (we don't think). It ended up being semi-soft and semi-crunchy. Is that the texture it's supposed to be?! I didn't hate it, but only ate some. Ryan was less of a fan. At least it looked normal and my homemade cheesy garlic bread turned out perfect! spaghetti squash + cheesy garlic bread
Oh well, you win some, you lose some. We now know for next time and will try it again sometime! Anyone have tips?
The rest of the night will be spent relaxing and we may go for a shorter 2 miler. (Hey, I need to start getting back into my 2 a days). I don't work tomorrow, so I'll be going to hines with RunnerBro and RunnerSis at 8. Crossing fingers it's not so hot!
Have a good rest of your weekend!
OH and PS - don't forget to go to this post: I made peace with the treadmill.. to ask me any questions that I'll answer in a post tomorrow!!
Here are some questions for you though:
-What motivates you more: tough love or happy, supportive words? Is it a mixture?
-Tips for spaghetti squash? Is it supposed to be crunchy?
-How was your weekend? Do anything exciting?
-If you go to the gym, do you work out better when it's empty or when there are lots of other people there to possibly push you more?
