Living On The Edge & One Good Thing About Your Workout

It's Friday Eve! I hope you're as excited as I am for the weekend. I have another day off tomorrow - I get a good amount of vacation days and figured I would use them to sit at the beach this year instead of my usual random day in December. I'm sure I'll be complaining come that random day in December when I just need to finish my Christmas shopping, but whatevs.

I switched things up a tad this week - I'm living on the edge over here - and ran on Monday. Mondays are usually my off days, but I was working from home and decided to get in an easy 5 mile run at the gym before work...


After my run, I foam rolled a whole lot and Stella decided she wanted to roll too. Have I mentioned she's a stage 5 clinger? 


On Monday night, I grabbed a drink at the Biergarten in Asbury Park. This place is usually packed on the weekends, but since it was Monday at 6pm, there was almost no one there. I need to start going out on Mondays more often... 


Tuesday was a rest day, so I was back at it on Wednesday morning. I knew running outside on limited sleep wasn't going to go well, but I did it anyway. The heat/humidity will make me a stronger runner even if I feel like I'm going to die from mile .25 onward. The complete distance was 5 miles, but I stopped my watch when I needed to take a quick walking break after 30 minutes, so 4.76 miles of running it was. The only thing good about this run was that sunrise... 


I usually bring my lunch to work, but I've been lazy the past few days, so I grabbed this flatbread sandwich at Pret. It was so good! Avocado and roasted corn - yum! Pret has a lot of somewhat healthy options and the calories are on everything, so you know what you're putting into your body. I always appreciate that... 


Enjoy the last couple of days of the work week! 

Do you have a favorite healthy fast food place? I get a lot of food from Starbucks when I'm at work. 

Name at least one good thing about your workout this week?
