Workout: May 22, 2013 (plus dinner)

I didn't work at all Sunday-Tuesday. Huge slacker. Today I think I more than made up for it. I missed a day of running yesterday, plus KB on Monday, so I decided it would be a good idea to do it all in one day. I felt good after I was done, but tweaked something in my neck/upper back. Hopefully it'll feel better tomorrow.

Assisted Pullups:
90lbs assistance: 10, 10, 6, 4

I did "3 miles + strides." The description was:
3.00 miles slow
0:20 fast
2:00 slow
0:20 fast
2:00 slow
0:20 fast
I did the first 3 miles at 5.7mph on the treadmill, then went up to 8.0mph for the fast sections. I think I ended up doing 3.54 miles in 36:40. I did 1 minute slow jogging to cool down, then walked for 4 more minutes, with a total of:
3.85 miles in 41:40, 444 calories burned

After the gym I went to a friend's house for a bit, then checked on the plants at Joey's house (they're all looking really good!), then home for shower+dinner. The department had free lunch (fajitas from Baja Bean) so I didn't eat my sandwich, so I was in the mood for a sandwich tonight. I made a delicious dinner, and was so hungry I ate the entire thing without even thinking about photographing it. I'm documenting what went into it anyway.

Tilapia Sandwich with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms
From: Me
Yield: 1 sandwich

1/2 medium onion, sliced into half rings
4 white mushrooms
4 baby bella mushrooms
1/2 tbsp oil
1 tilapia filet (I buy them frozen and individually wrapped at Sam's Club)
Favorite seasoning
2 slices rye bread (seeded)
1 tomato, sliced
1-2 large pieces of lettuce
Sweet and spicy mustard

Heat the oil in a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add the sliced mushrooms, sprinkle with s&p, toss to mix. Cook for several minutes, or until starting to brown, but not yet sticking. Add the mushrooms. They will start to release liquid after a few minutes. Keep cooking until the onions are soft and translucent. If they start to stick, add a few tbsp of water.

Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place the tilapia on the sheet, sprinkle with your favorite seasoning. I used the spice mix for tzatziki sauce (salt, pepper, garlic, dill). You could also keep it simple with just salt, pepper, garlic. Cook fish for 7 minutes.

Toast the bread, then slather with mustard. Top with onion and mushroom mixture, sliced tomato, the fish, lettuce, and then the second piece of bread. Slice in half and enjoy!
