couldn’t eat enough.

I need to have days where I don’t want to run but force myself to go anyways because those seem to be the days where I do my best!  I really wanted to go home and relax for a bit after work but I knew I would never leave the house later in the evening if I did that.  I just kept telling myself the sooner I finish running, the sooner I can go home.  I did 3 miles in 31:28 (10:29 pace), which was well over a minute faster than the same distance just two days before!

Before I left the office, I had a couple snacks throughout the afternoon.  I could not get enough to eat today!  I started with half this peanut and pecan mix.

Awhile later, I broke out some fruit (which makes me anxious for spring!).

dinner.

This morning, I saw some asparagus in the fridge that I knew I wanted to make for dinner tonight and I thought it was perfect timing that Evan posted a recipe for Lemon-Garlic Asparagus this morning!  I didn’t have a lemon lying around, so I used Garlic Gold Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette where he calls for olive oil.  I also added a bit of pepper.

I was needed some carbs, so I cooked up a serving of pasta to go with it.  I added a little Earth Balance on top.

In other super exciting (at least to me!) news, I was thrilled when I left the gym at 6 pm tonight and it was still light outside!  The daylight hours are getting longer my friends!  Just another small sign spring is on its way!  It makes me so happy!

Yum! I’ve heard such positive things about garlic gold. I’ll need to get my hands on it.

I totally agree with your first statement! Yesterday I really didn’t want to go to the gym, but I went and ran my fastest I have all week! Love great workouts.
