Sprints + Artichokes +The Daniel Plan

Good morning and Happy Friday!

This Friday is extra special, because I am getting out of the house for the first time in 4 days!  

Oh the places I will go. 

Yesterday Dan’s parents came over to watch Ina while I worked my heart out in my office upstairs.  I was sending emails and creating power point slides like a mad woman.  

Ina was so excited to see someone other than Dan and I.  She literally started dancing when they walked through the door.  She had such a great time.

When Dan got home I begged him for 20 minutes on the treadmill.  He got a back massage, so really it was a win-win.  

My sprint workout was really short, but went something like this:

  • 5 minute warmup at 6 mph
  • 1 minute sprint at 8 mph then 2 minute easy at 6 mph x 2
  • 1 minute sprint at 8 mph then 1 minute easy at 6 mph x 5

Whew, my heart was pumping by the end of that baby.  I should say that usually I don’t find 6 mph to be “easy” but compared to the 8 mph, it feels like I am practically walking!

I went straight from the treadmill to the dinner table, once I pulled this artichoke chicken out of the oven.

I used chicken breasts instead of quarters, served with a baked sweet potato, and it was pretty tasty.  

Dinner was followed by bedtime for little miss, more work for this momma, and then starting to read my new download - The Daniel Plan.

Anyone else heart of it?  I will write a full review once I am done reading, which might be very soon.  

Have a great weekend!
