I have done a whole lot of nothing today. What is it about running a race that just completely wipes you out?
I am still fully functional after training runs, but I guess it’s the exertion and excitement of the race that just takes it out of me. Even though I didn’t do as well as I had hoped, at least I know I still “left it all out there!”
I spent the afternoon eating bagels, reading blogs,catching up on my DVR, and attempting to nap. I’m not a good napper. Never have been. I’m incredibly envious of those of you who can! I hope you appreciate it! I would have given anything for a nap today!
I had originally planned to meet up with friends to watch the VCU vs. Butler game tonight, but I could barely muster the energy to get dressed, let alone doll myself up to be seen in public! I opted to watch the game at home and drive through Chik-fil-A for a Chargrilled Chicken and Fruit Salad. I was craving something fresh and light, but I knew there was no chance I was cooking!
I give this salad a solid C. The flavor was fine, but nothing special. It was more the rationing of fruit that I was bothered by.
3 strawberry halves
4 mandarin orange segments
5 pieces of apple
Do they employ someone to count out the pieces of fruit??? Oh, and I think there were about 4 shreds of cheese on it. C’mon Chik-fil-A! You can do better!
I know it’s only a fast food salad, but my hopes were high. I did my best to dress it up!
I warmed up the chicken and drizzled on some Berry Balsamic Vinaigrette, and it shaped up OK. They included a little packet of granola as a topper that gave it a little somethin’ somethin’ to redeem it a bit!
I really like the idea of this salad, so I’m looking forward to recreating a much better version of my own!
I believe I may have some of this in my future . . .
Because some days call for chocolate in controlled quantities! 😀
