40 Minute Interval Workout + Week 2 Endurance Challenge.

Last night in celebration of Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras, K made us shrimp etouffe for dinner. I had a work event that ended later than expected, and was so happy to come home to delicious spicy smells from our kitchen. The etouffe was delicious and I highly recommend the linked recipe. He used two substitutes - extra shrimp instead of crawfish {though we love them!} and a cajun spice mix instead of seafood seasoning.

I didn't even think twice about trying to make my plate look pretty by cleaning up the extra sauce - I was too ready to eat!

On to fitness - this week started week three of the 6 Week Endurance Running Challenge. I completed each of the required runs during week two:

Week 2
Tuesday~ Ran 4 {maintenance}
Thursday~ Ran 3 {intervals}
Saturday~ Ran 5 {long run} 
I also have a 40 minute interval treadmill workout to share that I ran earlier this week, resulting in 3.5 miles. I am {slowly} trying to increase my interval speeds on the treadmill, which is why there is a one minute walking break during each interval cycle. In the spirit of Mardi Gras, the photo on this workout is one that I took while visiting New Orleans a few years ago. The unique and colorful homes are my second favorite thing about that city {food is number one!}
