First of all, I sat down to start this post while enjoying breakfast – a heartwarming bowl of oat bran with Greek yogurt and coffeeeeee. Then, I got busy and decided to finish it up at lunch!
Second of all, where did this come from?!!?
There is a yellow mystery goo surrounding our driveway! What is this and why won’t it go away?
Things are back on track around here… Wednesday was both productive and fun. After taking a fitness break on Monday and Tuesday (travel, sleepiness, laziness), I felt recharged yesterday.
Week 2 – Day 4 (my 12-week workout plan)
Scheduled: bike to work, track workout – 5×1000 at 5k pace with 3 min walk break in between intervals
Completed: did not bike to work :( but I will on Friday! On the treadmill:
- 5 minute warm up
- 1000m sprint at 8.6 mph/6:59 minute
- 3 minute walk
- did intervals a total of 5 times
After light stretching, I completed Tuesday’s missed core workout – scissor kicks, double crunches, toe touch crunches, and these:
Sweet Spot: jumping back into tough speedwork and making it through!
Sticky Spot: keeping good form on the core exercises. I sped through them to get ready for…
Dinner at Taqueria La Bamba (580 Rengstorff Avenue, Mountain View)
I’ve always wanted to try this family-owned restaurant – whenever I drive by I remind myself to eventually stop in. I’m glad we did, because 1. it’s huge 2. it’s fast 3. it’s authentic (or at least claims to be). My only gripe: they use yellow light bulbs in the dining room area (why?!), so our burrito pictures look like the yellow driveway goo took over my camera lens.
They’ve got a salsa bar and complimentary chips for everyone. I chose a regular burrito with shrimp and it was huge. Bang for the buck! Half of it sits in my fridge for tonight’s dinner. :) After dinner, we went to Cheryl Burke Dance studio for week 2 of Lindy Hop lessons!
The hour flew by! We reviewed a lot and learned how to properly spin in a circle while dancing the traditional “triple step.” After class, Kyle and I practiced for another 15 minutes. We’ve got it down!
This yellow stuff is everywhere! It’s attacking my car…
