So let's back up a little. Sunday, I took it easy with books and went to my favorite place in this whole city:
Chinatown. Get used peeps with me talking about this place. When I like something, I get hold of it hard time.
And why is it so awesome there?
Raw salmon with avocado and cream cheese for $17 pesos. This would be... $4.20 dollars. Yup.
And this is a happy girl with her roll of sushi trying to make it not look too compromising in the picture.
Ok it doesn't matter how you hold something penis-shaped, it's always gonna look bad. Sigh.
Another great excuse to go there (besides doing all my groceries and getting to see 99% of the costumers being old people who has to eat healthy for medical orders) is to buy something called alfajor.
It's made with chia flour, chia seeds and it has sugar-free dulce de leche in the middle.
Talking about a happy Sunday :) And also I'm not giving you guys the middle finger, my movements are usually awkward like that.
So Monday I didn't have classes but I went to check an extra class and see how it was. Lame. I stayed for 20min and left. There's a really good doctor teaching on Thursday, so I'm up to try him instead. This classes are called seminars and you aren't obligated to go to them. We have the classes during the morning and those seminars spread throughout the week. I had some good recommendations for 3 of them, so I'm checking them out later this week.
And my Monday lunch looked a little like this
Spinach, tomato, broccoli (again?) and chicken with a whole onion in it. 'Cause just about everything is great with onions and I'll never understand how people come to not like them.
So Sunday is my day off at the gym and Monday I was feeling a good vibe. I did 9 sets of sprints, 1min each. Fast, Faster, Fastest. 7.15mph, 7.35mph, 7.45mph (sorry guys I'm really lame with the mile/minute thing). When I got home, I was a dead body and decided to go with an easy dinner.
Spinach, tomato, tuna and ricotta cheese on a tortilla. The cheapest and quickest meal you'll ever find.
It was so satisfying that I just used the leftover for lunch yesterday on one tortilla and scrambled eggs with cheese on another tortilla. Life's good.
Yesterday, I did 10.5K on a treadmill. First time in my life. The pace was lame (9.20 and I just know it because it showed on the dailymile.com lol) but I'm still proud of myself. I felt such a sense of accomplishment! So great to feel like you can push further and further if you only try (not to mention that I got to watch 3 episodes of 6teen and that everybody walking behind me was wondering why a grown up gal kept watching teenager cartoons and laughing out loud like there was no tomorrow).
Ok you guys know that Simon left American Idol 'cause he's bringing X-factor to the US right? So Cheryl Cole is supposed to be one of the judges but Fox doesn't want to air the program if she's judging because "if viewers in the U.S. can't understand what she's saying, the show will be in breach of strict U.S. TV regulations." Sometimes I can't help it but feel really sorry for north-americans and their perception of the world.
What is something you currently need to work on?
My pace. I'm gonna try to stick with the 10K and get to a 8.3 (?) pace... or should I improve the distance as well at the same time? What you guys all elite runners think?
Have you ever left a class in the middle?
Always do. I mean, not always, but very often. If they're not obligated and if I feel that I could be learning much more if I was at home studying on my own, then I'm so outty. d:
