Potato Butts


Work was pretty easy today. I subbed in a 4th grade class that I’ve subbed in before, and many of the kids were happy to see me. (Yeah, I am that awesome Smile)

I headed straight to the gym, where I hemmed and hawed in the parking lot for a while before going in. And I’m glad I did.

Tonight’s run was soooo much better than last nights. Speed work was on the docket and I killed it.


run 2 8 11

5 x .25 mi repeats at 5k pace (6.1 mph)

I did .25 miles in between at 5.7 mph and it felt super slow, but relaxed. I wanted to do some strength training, but I didn’t.

I did something funky to my neck and now it hurts to tilt it to the left. Boo.

I came home and had no idea what to make for dinner. I’ve had a pound of ground beef defrosting in the fridge for a few days. Matt came home a little stressed about work. And what do you feed a hungry and stressed man? Burgers and mini potato skins.

Exhibit A:


They made use of the potato butts by filling them with gooey cheese. Yum.


Exhibit B.


It was delicious.


Now we’re off to the bar for trivia night and a beer (or two).
