Nothing like dark, drizzly skies to get ya going at 5 a.m. Right?
On the menu was 4 to 5 miles at a 6:55 pace. I only got one quick and sad minute rest in between. I compromised at 4.5 miles and my paces ranged from 6:45 to 6:52. In case anyone was wondering.
Although it was nice to finally reach daylight, each mile got soggier…and soggier.On my last mile I was running through some serious rain and my bike ride home was through a complete downpour. Cars splashing water all over me; rain pellets in the eye; shoes sloshing out water with each pedal. You know how it goes.It was so, so cold and wet that I couldn’t help but laugh at how ridiculous I must have looked pedaling my slow pink bike through such conditions. Great workout!
Given the rainy forecast, I’m glad we made soup with plenty of leftovers:Yesterday, we got out the slow cooker and let this picante chicken black bean soup from Skinnytaste simmer alllll day long.It was really, really good! I’d definitely make it again.
Wondering what that strange creature beside my soup is? Another great wedding gift! We spotted these octopus-print napkins on Etsy and knew that they were a necessity for the Lambkin household.They’re the latest step in our effort to move away from paper products in the kitchen. That’s pretty big news, right?
Stay dry today!
