Snowy, but sunny!I allllmost gave in to the treadmill this morning, but thought I’d take my chances on the snowy streets instead. Some were definitely un-runnable…But most have been salted and shoveled! Perfect for a (mostly) slow and steady jog. Massive fur hat required — it’s 9 degrees outside.The (mostly) slow part means I did a few sprints — ten to be exact. This hill, over and over and over and over x10. It’s not that steep, but it’s long!
By the way, if you’re looking to find your perfect hill(s) for repeats, here’s a RW article explaining the different type of workouts you can do on short/steep hills vs. long/gradual hills. Depending on what type of workout you’re after (and how many reps you’re doing), each repeat should last between 25 seconds (steeep!) and 2 minutes (looooong!).And now I’m back home, blasting the heater and wearing four layers of sweatpants.
Sticking with yesterday’s food theme: staying warm, let’s pour out some more soup!I’d been thinking about this broccoli white bean soup and wanted to give Anthony a taste (he was out of town when I made it the first time). (Also, email subscribers — apologies if you received the old broccoli soup post in your inbox yesterday! It somehow re-sent as I was updating it…)
Anyways, let’s be clear about this: This soup is really really good. Especially when topped with bacon.Anthony and I both had eventful days at work yesterday and decided that beers were in order with dinner. YOLO.This seriously might be one of my favorite meals of late! So easy, delicious, and healthy (and cheap!). Definitely a keeper.Have a snowy, soupy day!
