Weekly recap, and tortilla pizzas

This last week was week 2 of the half training schedule and it went really well!  

Let's take a look:
Tuesday: 2 mile run
Wednesday: 3.65 mile bike ride
Thursday: 3.25 mile run
Friday: 4 mile run
Sunday: 6 mile bike ride

A good week, but I see a real lack of strength training.  I have a 10 Minute Solution pilates dvd that I really like to do, so I'm going to try to incorporate more of that this week.  We'll see how I do on that!  

Friday, our "long" run was a 4 miler, and I loved it.  I felt so good and strong, but ran at a relaxed, easy pace.  When we got back to the house, I was sad it was over, and wished we would've run a few more miles!  I take that as a great sign!  

I'm slowly getting faster, too, which I'm super excited about!  If we would have run two more miles on Friday, I would've beat my previous 10K time by 10 minutes.  Each small victory adds up to make the big ones!

The other day I made tortilla pizzas, and I really liked how they turned out.  I made flour tortillas, rolling them out thicker than I normally would, cooked them in the pan until I got some brown spots on them, added my sauce and toppings, then baked until they were warm, and the cheese was melted!

I used some cheese, but mine mostly consisted of veggies.

I used:
 • A sprinkling of cheese and meat
 • Zucchini
 • Pineapple
 • Tomatoes 
 • Corn
 • Snow peas
 • Green pepper

Here's what the guys' pizzas looked like:

 • Cheese
 • Meat
 • Tomatoes
 • Pineapple

These were so good - I'll definitely be making them again soon.  Quick, healthy, and filling!  Would you all be interested in a recipe section?

What are your plans for this week?
