Happy Friday!!! I’m glad the sun is shining again, but wowza is it windy out there!!! Yikes!!
I have a super packed weekend ahead of me and instead of worrying about when I was going to squeeze in a 2 hour run, I decided it was best to do it today.
Although I have a 12 miler scheduled, I figured after last week’s crummy run, it’d be better to get a good 10 miler under my belt first. Ok, honestly, I didn’t decide that until I was already running, but I felt really comfortable with the idea of repeating the 10. I have plenty of time to get to 12 before March 21st.
I’m happy to report today’s 10 went much better than last week’s!! I made it to mile 7.5ish before my legs were super exhausted. But exhausted in the “you just ran 7.5 miles” way, not the “what the heck is going on” way. I took a few quick walk breaks the last few miles, but I’m pleased with how it went.
I ended up doing 10.18 miles in 1:43:10, which is a 10:08 pace. Works for me. I mean obviously I wish I was able to handle a faster pace, but I also have the ability to be realistic— 10 is good.
It was SO windy too. It finally died down for the last 20 minutes or so, and it was amazing how much warmer it felt for that part. Whew!
Hidden risotto!! I had saved two servings of the black bean risotto, one for me, and one for the hubby. I had mine the next day, but I found the rest hidden in the back of the fridge this morning. Snooze you loose hubby! It’s all mine!!
I think the risotto managed to get even creamier as it sat in the fridge. 🙂
Some risotto plus a banana.
Naner naner boo boo
Plus some unpictured tortilla chips…don’t know how that happened! 😉
Oh and a glass of juice!
This is V8 Splash Light Acai Berry something or other. I usually like V8 Splash since it actually tastes like fruit (a must for me to drink juice- it has to be 100% fruit!) but this flavor definitely disappointed. It was way too sweet and didn’t taste like any fruit I know. Bahh. Oh well.
Now back to work!!! 🙂
