Tired, Tired and Cranky!

Whaa! I'm beat...between the heat, a lack of running, super sore Crossfit legs and a trip to the city last night, I just want to curl up in a ball under my desk and take a nap. Or call in sick. But I'm far too responsible these days for that.

Last night I met my best friend in the city for a fancy dinner at Asia de Cuba. This place has been on my top 10 for awhile so I was thrilled to see their menu as part of Restaurant Week. Sadly, I was pretty disappointed. We waited a while for our table which was no biggie as we were catching up, but I was starving and the food, was...bland. I couldn't believe it, I mean we are talking Asian/Cuban fusion. We had the beef pot-stickers 2 ways, calamari salad (so absolutely bland) and crispy tofu, Amy chose some coconut thing for dessert which I also didn't care for (but I'm not a coconut gal). I was bummed, and I have to say they chose main staples from their regular menu as part of the RW promotion, so I was super surprised at how not good everything was. Oh well. I had a great time catching up with my bestie and food is just food, good or bad...(although my inner fat girl is a little mad about it...pout!).

This week was really light on the running. I skipped my 5 miler, was going to run it tonight but it's about 110 degrees out and I have a 10 miler on tap for tomorrow. I also did a trial Crossfit workout and I'm still sore - who knew a 20 minute beginner WOD would make my quads sore to the touch! Still not sure how I feel about Cfit, but I'm going to give it a shot for a month, I have foundations classes set up for next week, plus running, plus my half! Should be a fun one!!

Ok, off to brave the heat and with all the other hot, cranky people of Long Island.

I love restaurant week. Last year, I tried Fig and Olive and it was tasty but the portions were TINY!
Good luck with your ten miles tomorrow. This heat has to break sometime right?
And thanks for the heads up on my blog about newsday. I don't subscribe and would have missed it!
