Remember how I said I was going to try and eat more at-home meals after my trip? Well, that hasn’t really happened. Last week, the Husband and I went to dinner on Wednesday night with some friends and Thursday night with one of his coworkers and his wife. It was pretty taxing since we went to bed past 12 on both nights, had some drinks and still had to get up early the next morning. Thankfully, our weekend was pretty low-key (I went to bed BOTH nights before 10 pm) and just relaxed. We even got ourselves a massage on Saturday afternoon, which was glorious!
Well, even though I didn’t want to eat out as much last week, we had a great time and enjoyed amazing food. We went to a new-to-us restaurant on Wednesday and everything was delicious. We each ordered an appetizer, entrée and dessert (talk about lots of food), but thankfully portions were decent and we didn’t end up too full.
For starters I had the grilled octopus and for my entrée I went with the mahi mahi. Both were delicious, but I have to say that the octopus stole the show. We ordered 6 desserts and shared them with the table (it was 6 of us) and all of them were delicious. My favorite was the chocolate tart with raspberries and some chocolate dessert with lucuma (a Peruvian fruit that is considered a superfood).
As for Running, last week was yet again another great running week for me. I followed my plan almost exactly and felt great on all of my runs except for one. Here’s what my week looked like:
Monday: 8x 800m at 10k pace
Tuesday: 5 easy miles
Wednesday: Tempo run (about 6.5 miles)
Friday: Long run 12.5 miles
Saturday: 5 miles
This week my running will not be as great since I’m travelling to Cuzco on Thursday morning until Sunday so I’ll try to get in my long run tomorrow. This week will work as my “scale-back” week and I’ll just pick up from where I left off on Monday- no big deal! I’m actually going to enjoy my time off with my friend and Husband in Cuzco.
I almost forgot- I’m running a half marathon on September 1st. I’m excited since I love to race, but it’s the day after my cousin’s wedding so I’ll have to go to bed early!
And just because she’s too cute, here’s a picture of Maia from the weekend with her scooter.
Hope you have a great day!
