Good morning! I went for a run this morning which apparently is quite similar to smoking marijuana. Hmm.A short, fast run today — I had just enough time to squeeze in a few miles and type up this post before I go pick up my friend Meredith at the airport! She’s staying with us this weekend and we are going to take Nashville by storm. I might even stay up past 10 pm! 😮Half mile easy, four miles fast, half mile easy. Last speedier run for this training cycle! I was hoping to bring the pace down by about 10 more seconds during the fast part but just couldn’t turn my feet over quickly enough. Oh well. At least I was speedier than the little slug I almost squashed on my way home.Only about 20 miles left in my legs until race day (4-5 easy runs total) — get ready for lots of taper rambles next week
And now, time for dinner rambles. On the menu for last night: a new salad recipe a la Cook Smarts.The potatoes, green beans, walnuts, and dressing were served warm — which somehow made this meal kind of comfort food-ish?By the way, this week I declared it time to bring out the mini pumpkins and squashes for our table. They give our dinosaur s+p shakers an autumnal touch, don’t you think?!This salad seemed like a super random lineup of ingredients when I was making it — roasted potatoes, green beans, walnuts, and tuna — and I admit that I was quite skeptical that it would taste good. However, once we tried it, everything came together and the walnuts + potatoes seemed to mellow out the tuna. But like everything in life, we decided that it would be better with cheese. Good thing I always have a block of parm on hand.Time to go pick up Meredith! Let the weekend begin
- What ingredient/topping do you always have on hand?
- How many miles does a final taper week usually hold for you?
- Canned tuna: yay or nay?
