A very Leslie Knopp Valentine’s Day

Happy day-after Valentine’s/Singles Awareness Day! I’m not sure which one it was for you, but either way I hope it was fabulous!

I started my morning off with a six mile run w/ hills on the treadmill. I did a one-mile warm-up at 7.0, followed by a half-mile at an incline of 5.0 (speed: 6.5) and another half-mile at 7.0 (alternating). Darn you Pittsburgh marathon and your hills — I’m afraid you’re gonna kill me!

I followed up my six miler with five rounds of this quick leg workout:

  • 15 squats
  • 20 box jumps
  • 25 mountain climbers

Phew! I was more than ready to dig into a big bowl of chia oats when I got home.

The day was pretty uneventful, but I offered to bring home some takeout for Andy & I to enjoy for our Valentine’s Day dinner! I ended up at Applebee’s since I had a gift card and ordered the Zesty Roma Chicken & Shrimp, which was pretty good but definitely lacking some greens! I threw on some steamed asparagus of my own after this photo:

We enjoyed our Applebee’s while watching a few more episodes of on Netflix. I love that show! We finished up the Office a few weeks ago (sad), but Parks & Rec is getting increasingly funnier and on it’s way to being our next Netflix favorite!

For Valentine’s Day, we set a $10 limit (I was almost able to follow it!) and I created a basket full of “favorite things” for Andy…

I won’t lie, I stole a handful (or two or three) of those pretzel M & M’s when he opened them up. I love those things!

On the agenda for this weekend is an 11-mile run, brunch with my running group, church, and dinner with one of my best friends from college. Can’t wait!



One thought on “A very Leslie Knopp Valentine’s Day

  1. I did a 3 mile loop around campus. Talk about hills. My tush is a tad sore. That sounds ridiculous but those hills are intense as ever…
