Happy Friday! I can’t say I have really anything planned for this weekend other than Seamus getting his yearly physical. Hopefully chunky monkey has lost some weight from the long winter.
Other than that it should be a mild weekend. I will be getting started on my Summer Reading List, hitting the beach, and cleaning my house. I might make a trip to Ikea for some new curtains but it is a bit of a hike so not sure about that one. I will be getting some good runs in too, I am going into week 4 of the 10k training. It’s getting serious. Well let’s get to it shall we, it’s Friday so of course I am sharing some of my favorites.
Favorite Song: Back when I was training for triathlons Papa Roach filled my playlist for my 2 hour training sessions. They are so hard energy and the beats kept me pushing hard. Still a big favorite of mine now that I am running so much.
Favorite Show I’m Looking Forward To Watching: I got an email reminder from Netflix regarding The Killing come back on August 1st. I can’t thank Netflix enough for keeping this show going. So looking forward to binge watching this one. A female detective who doesn’t give up, and a male detective who pushes her buttons, yup my kinda show.
Favorite Blog Post: We all know that I love to be positive and upbeat but I am human and some days kick me in the pants. It is all in how you recover, how long it takes you turn it around, and not staying in the negative that matters. Love Steph’s perspective on this post.
Favorite Recipe: This salad just looks heavenly. Salad with chorizo, chilli roasted tomatoes, avocado and poached eggs with a chilli lime dressing. It had me at Chorizo. 🙂
Favorite Funnies: My running has been going well, so far no pain but I don’t think I’ll ever be a “runner”. Linking to the pin since it is linked to the main page.
It’s how I learned to swim! 😉
That is all from me, my goose is cooked! What are your plans for the weekend?
kathy @ vodka and soda says
agreed; steph’s post was great. and i’m far from a “runner” as in i will never have the drive to do a half marathon but i run to stay active 🙂
I totally run to stay active, to get and stay healthy. The half-marathon is just my crazy talk! 😉
Oh my gosh – totally didn’t read that number…womp womp lol! I love that salad hope you try it and give us your take on it lol!! Have a great weekend!
Haha!! I didn’t either. I am going to try it this weekend for sure! I’ll let you know.
no plans yet this weekend other than clean up the place. i haven’t been home the past 2 weekends!
Those are the best weekends. I think we both have some cleaning to catch up on, it’s been a busy summer for us both! Hopefully you still get some Charlie snuggles in too!
Amanda Elizabeth says
That salad though……when I run or make an intense playlist song Papa Roach is always on there. Something about sprinting out to that is so motivating right? Hope you have a fabulous weekend and thanks for linking up!
Doesn’t it look fabulous! Mine never look that good!! The beats are so fast it always makes me run faster and longer!!

I’m excited to see what they do with The Killing this season too! I really liked Season 1 until the end when they decided to drag it out FAR longer than it ever should have been dragged out! I thought the last season was so-so, but hopefully this will be a good one! Good luck with your runs this weekend! Working up to a 10k is amazing!
Yes, last season was a little rushed and weird but I’m hoping that is because they knew they were canceling it.
Thank you! I am hoping I make it through the 10k so I can move to the half-marathon training.
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
Thanks for sharing my post! You rock.
That salad looks delicious. I need to put an egg on top of some stuff, soon. Greens included.
We have a busy weekend this weekend and next and then the next two I’m guarding with my life. I need some downtime!
I need to get my netflix going so I can watch The Killing!
Of course, I loved your perspective. Egg is such a quick way to add protein, so I love it on salads.
Yes, guard your weekends, I have a vacation coming up so I’m trying to lay low and not spend money! 😉
That salad sounds good, minus the egg! Have you tried vegan chorizo – it’s actually pretty good and obviously better for you (though nothing beats the real thing!). I gave up on The Killing after season one, I know, I’m lame. ALSO if you have Amazon Prime, I think they have a hard rock running playlist if you need new music!
Nothing beats the real thing!! Chorizo for life!! Haha!! The last season ended weird but I think because they were canceling it was rushed. I’ll have to chance out that playlist, I do have prime.
lol into a pool of sexy! that salad looks amazing although i’m also ick on the egg – i love eggs just not in salad!
and hey – if you run, you are a runner. stop saying otherwise 😉
I mean we have to believe in our own sexy! 🙂 I guess that’s true, I just won’t ever be a great runner.
Love Papa Roach. Met Jacoby at the last show I went to..great guy, super nice!
That is so cool you got to meet him. Love them.
I don’t eat chorizo but that salad looks amazing! And haha, I was too lazy to read the number 🙂 Have a great weekend!
I am sure you could sub it out for something else. I was too so don’t feel bad! 😉 Hope you have a great weekend!
I am going to be honest, that salad looks amazing but my eyes went straight to the bread on the side first!! CARBS!
Papa Roach!!!! Love them!
LOL at the running thing. I hate running…I can never make it a thing for me.
Hope you have a great weekend!!!!!!!
Haha!! Carbs, Carbs, Carbs! Papa Roach is so good and making running bearable! I can tolerate it but I don’t know if I will ever being a lover of running. Enjoy the weekend!
I’m so glad your training is going so well! You and me both with the slow thing. I am PAINFULLY slow. I get lapped. And I applaud you for bring out the papa roach songs! I’ve never heard of that show–but it sounds like something I’d enjoy!! I’ll have to look into it! <3 Happy Friday!
Thank you. I just don’t think I will ever love running, but it the fastest way to get and stay in shape. Papa Roach is awesome!!
Check it out, it is a good cop drama, with lots of disfunction. Happy Friday!
I love the Killing. So looking forward to the new season. Have a great weekend.
It is so good, I am so glad it came back. It has been a long wait! Have a great weekend.
I love the Killing! One of my favorites. If you like that, check out The Fall on Netflix. It is only one season, but great. The second is due out next year.
I will have to check that one out. I am so excited for the Killing to come back out.
Ooo I’ll have to check out The Killing! I’ve never heard of that one and I need to binge watch something else until OITNB is back on haha. I definitely need to make a new playlist for my next run too AND for training. 😀
The Killing is really good, get caught up on Netflix. What is on your playlist now?
Kateri Von Steal says
Chorizo Salad? Ohmahgoodness.. I’m in love.
And I’m a runner.. and I totally get the herd of turtles stampeding through PB…
I am proud of 10 minute miles… And then I run with people who are doing 8 and 9 minute miles… I guess they’re motivation to push harder? And it makes me slightly jealous that my son is doing 11 minute miles and if his legs were a litle longer he’d probably SMOKE PASSED me on the regular. But, I run. 🙂
I need to really fix my iPOD. I put all of this hard beat music.. too push me with my runs.. and I swear to G.O.D… the only thing that plays is just NONSENSE. Perhaps I really should just bite the bullet.. go through all my stuff.. and make set playlists.. I’m just being SUPER LAZY about it.. Why can’t the iPOD just know, that I want the NEW stuff to play?
Well – cleaning, cooking, dress rehearsal for NYRF, running, tabata… meeting with the minister…. hopefully breathing as well…
I want a relaxing weekend! HARUMPH!
I made a few changes to it and I loved it. At least we run, right?! Yes, you need to organize your playlists, they always make me run faster when it is good.
You have a very busy weekend planned, hope you got it all done!
Lol, yep! You got me on the #.. jumped right past it! 😉 Enjoy your weekend girl!
Haha! I did the same, it’s way too long! 😉 Have a great weekend!

I didn’t know Netflix was going to air another season of The Killing. Glad to hear it. I loved that show!
Yes, I was so excited they decided to pick it up. Only a week to go before it finally airs!!
Yayy for another relaxing weekend, I hope Seamus lost a little weight. Doctor’s don’t like it when you don’t lose the pounds. 🙂
Yeah they were very understanding that he gained in the Winter but they would not be happy if he hasn’t lost it yet. Eek!
That salad looks amazing! I made one very similar for dinner last night and it was really good. Have a great weekend!
Ok, now I have to make it! Hope you have a great weekend!
I haven’t heard of that show yet, I’ll have to look it up. I’m always up for a goo detective show! Have you seen Rizzoli and Isles? It’s one of my favorites.
I think you’d like it. I love Rizzoli and Isles, I read all the books so I had to watch the show. It’s very good!
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
I heard The Killing got cancelled right after it premiered last season so I never bothered to watch it! It was originally on cable TV right? That salad look SO good right about now!
Have a great weekend – I know you always do 😉
Yes, it was on AMC for the first few season. It has a cult following and big overseas so Netflix picked it up. That salad is on my list of things to make. Haha! One of these weekends I won’t move a muscle so you can believe me when I say it was lame! 😉
Liz @ Fitness Blondie says
Was “The Killing” on another TV channel before it went to Netflix? It sounds really cool. That salad looks amazing! I really love finding good salad recipes in the hot summer; they’re just refreshing. That picture about being dropped in a pool of sexy is so freaking funny; I hope to use that one someone soon, hahaha. That is so awesome you’re sticking with the 10k training. I forget if you have said or no, but do you have one picked out?
It was on AMC before it got cancelled then Netflix picked it up. I made a version of the salad and I went back for seconds, so good! I am not doing a race per say just trying to get through the training app so I can get to the half marathon app, I might do a race after that one.
I had big plans to do a long training walk today but rain got in the way. I hope you got in a run before it started!
I was totally lazy and didn’t run at all. 🙁 The rain made me so sleepy.
I might have to check out The Killing. It sounds like something I’d like!
It is really good, dark and mysterious.
Yes, yes, yes! Can’t wait for The Killing to return!
Only a few more days!! Binge watching will occur!!
That salad looks so yummy! Everytime you post a salad it looks so good!
Thank you! I love salad, must be my childhood when my Dad made us eat salad every night. It rubbed off.
OMG that salad looks amazing! If you ever need an Ikea buddy, I’m always down to go!
Thank you. Ikea buddies are a good idea, you can get lost in there!! Haha!
