Nothing terribly exciting to report about tonight... I got to the gym this morning for a 50 minute tempo run. I decided since I did a hard 6 miles on Sunday that I would do more of an endurance type workout this morning instead of more intervals. I warmed up at my normal 10:30-10:45 pace and then spent the next 30 minutes getting up to and holding about a 9:30 mile. I purposefully took it easy today (for fear of having another crappy long run on Thursday... am I paranoid?) but was getting a little bored toward the end, so I kicked it up to 8 something. I was able to hold that for a few minutes before calling it quits and starting my cool down.
Overall, it was very successful and fulfilling run for me- 5.1 miles in 51 minutes. I spent some time stretching (I feel like the more I push my speed, the tighter my legs get!) and then did some sit ups on that fancy incline thingy machine.
For lunch, Max and I went outside to take advantage of the gorgeous 70 degree weather (if you are still dealing with cold temps and snow... I'm sorry!!). I made a most fantastic salad with lots and lots of kale and a veggie burger, and Max sunbathed himself.
I also wanted to through out this article for you guys to read about the health benefits/hazards of soy. It's a rather lengthy article, but the basic gist of it is: fermented soy products (soy sauce, tempeh, miso, and natto) are good for you and everything else is bad (eg: soymilk, tofu, soybeans, etc).
What do you think? Are you pro-soy or anti-soy?
