Whew! It is Monday again my friends, which means I need to peel my butt off the couch and away from 24/7 Olympic watching. Is anyone else obsessed? This weekend was packed full of spectating (from the comfort of our couch), sprinkled with a little bit of anniversary celebrating and marathon training.
Friday started with a delicious and easy Paleo adapted Shrimp burger with a lemon Dijon aioli on top. I promise this recipe will be posted tomorrow. It was too good to not share!
Saturday was full of celebrations and Olympics watching. Since I was a volleyball player in high school, I am naturally drawn to watch the ladies play. Watching team USA not only sparked my itch to get back on the court, but also made my heart swell with Penn State Pride as #13 Christa Harmotto took to the court. She has been one of the most outspoken Penn Staters that are participating in the Olympics, and it’s great that my Alma Mater has wonderful ambassadors such as she. Aside from volleyball, I love watching swimming and field hockey (to cheer on a former high school classmate).
Saturday night we got to the celebrating portion of the weekend as the BF and I spent a lovely dinner reminiscing about our last 3 years together. Its hard to believe it’s been three years! We look forward to many more to come
Sunday wrapped up the weekend with a 7.33 mi run for marathon training. It was interesting to me that not only has my pace become faster (thank you CrossFit) but my body no longer aches the day of or after a long run like it used to. I could get used to this! I mentioned before that I plan to stay Paleo during my training. I plan to write a full post for you all on what I eat before/after a long run as this has dramatically shifted since adopting this grain free lifestyle.
Question of the day: How was your weekend?! Which Olympic sport(s) are your favorite to follow?
