Deviating From Plans

Taper Run...Sort of
So today was supposed to be 2 miles with 4 1:00 intervals. It was sunny, I was stressed, and I deviated from the plan a bit. I ran down by the river (a lot windier than the weather reported), but it felt great - hello capri pants and short sports bra weather!

So, back to deviation....I ended up doing 2 miles, the intervals, and another 2 miles. It's supposed to be my taper week, so I did at least stop myself from going any farther, but I felt like I could have done another 2 miles so easily today. I suppose that 4.5 miles is short compared to the 8-milers I have been doing on Tuesdays.

So, I know I did more than I was supposed to do, but it was a much-needed stress-relieving run. I needed that jolt of sunshine too. 


Dinner Plans Delayed
I had planned on this great baked quinoa dish for dinner. I was excited about it. Had been planning it in my head all day. But like the running deviation, there was a dinner deviation.

I suppose the reason is worth it though. I got a car!!! I ended up getting a 2008 Infiniti G37 Sport. It was dark by the time we were done with everything, so pictures will come later. We didn't get home until about 7:50, no dinner yet, so we threw together some burritos and pretty much wolfed them down in record time.

Sorry for the super short, picture-free post. It's getting late and we're just now getting settled. We also have a car manual to read up on ;-)
