It’s a beautiful day! This sunrise was perfect.I was out there to enjoy the fresh air after almost a week of drizzly skies. Also bumped into this silhouette man with an Australian accent.Anthony and I covered about 6 miles together and then I dashed off for a fast finish. Since I gave you words of wisdom from one of my favorite training books yesterday, here’s today’s quote about fast finish (FF) runs. As race day gets closer, I’m reading this book over and over to reassure myself that I’m ready!
Speaking of races — today it was warm enough to wear my ZOOMA tank! Use MARY15 to get 10% off your ZOOMA Nashville registration fee Seven and a half miles. Done!Moving right along to this week’s menu… sandwiches!The grilled chicken and veggies on the inside were really good, but the real star of the show was the bread (duh). I tried out this caraway rye bread recipe over the weekend and it was a winner.My loaf didn’t hold its shape too well and turned out looking like an amoeba, but the flavor was just right! We cut it up into slim, rectangle-sized slices and tossed our sandwiches on our panini press to make things a little fancier. What’s that stuff on the side, atop of our lettuce?
I made the roasted root vegetable and farro salad from the Cook Smarts menu last week and it was perfect for the weekend’s dreary weather. Plus we had plenty of leftovers to mix in with other meals (like we did above). The recipe is pretty simple: roast a bunch of carrots, parsnips, acorn squash, cauliflower, onion, and chickpeas // mix with warm, cooked farro // dress with dill, lemon, and olive oil // top with feta! The feta addition was my own idea 😉 Side note: can you believe we’re in root vegetable and roast season? Is it time to bust out the pumpkin soup recipe?!I know that we have a serious La Croix addiction. Heads up: twelve packs are two-for-one right now at Publix! #cantstopwontstopOff for a busy Tuesday. Hope yours is good!
