WIAW #20

 

WHAT-I-ATE-WEDNESDAY-NEW-BUTTON-PEAS-AND-CRAYONS

 

Welcome to another WIAW. This round of What I Ate Wednesday is actually of a Wednesday, which I am not sure I’ve ever done before! I snapped photos of my eats from last Wednesday to share with all of you. The bar is getting closer, and my eats are getting pretty samesies, but they’re still delicious, nutritious, and good for body and soul! Breakfast was a gluten free waffle-wich, sweetened up with some honey roasted turkey breast, apple slices, sharp Cheddar, and a touch of maple syrup between two Van’s apple cinnamon waffles. Absolutely delicious with my usual decaf iced coffee.

Weekly Workouts + Fourth of July Weekend Recap

Hope everyone had a fabulous Fourth of July weekend filled with family, friends, food and fun. I’m checking in at the start of this week to share my weekly workouts and a Fourth of July weekend recap! My weekend was low-key, and that was lovely. It started off with a ‘freedom’ run. Not just to do with the holiday, but because I ran without headphones, meaning no music and no bar exam lectures, and without any particular distance in mind. I ran when I felt like it, at the speed I felt like, slowing to a walk occasionally. In the end I probably jogged about 5 miles and walked 1 around the hilly Ridgefield roads and at the recreation center.

Rail Trail Ramblings + A Blackberry Bramble Oatmeal Cake

Happy long weekend, everyone! I am spending Memorial Day at my family home in Connecticut. It’s likely that I’ll be splitting time between there and Manhattan for the next few months, because it’s much nicer to study for the bar exam in a big airy house with a Sasha for puppy therapy than in a New York apartment. I’ll be in the city to see friends, get in November Project workouts here and there, and go to Summer Stage concerts and such, but you’ll be seeing a lot more New England summer scenery in my weekly updates and running routes! Last week, I got in a mix of workout lengths and locales. 5 miles on Monday in Manhattan, 6 miles Wednesday, and 8 miles yesterday here. These are just some glimpses from my ramblings on the Ridgefield Rail Trail on a late spring Sunday!
