Clear skies and 52 degrees. FINALLY!It took me a while to find my groove on today’s run due to a little hamstring hangover. Yesterday I tried out Nike Training Club’s “True Condition” routine which was a killer. By the way, I just discovered this NTC beginner half marathon plan — looks like a great little lineup of cross training and running in case you’re interested.
Anyways, back to this morning’s run. By mile 2.5 I was feeling good. Stopped to watch the sunrise + the train go by. Seven deer, just hanging out. I them allll the time in Shelby Park. I wonder if they remember me — that weird runner girl with the smartphone.Five miles for Friday. Hoping I can get a nice long run in tomorrow while this weather sticks around. Is it spring yet? While it’s still wintery-ish, our menu is full of comfort food! Chicken/chickpea stew + rice + garlicky chard.I made this on Wednesday night and enjoyed dinner for one since Anthony was out of town. I may have moved this meal to a TV tray while I wrapped up the last episode of The Mindy Project (which aired in December, I know) — how dramatic! I’m quite distressed by the whole Mindy/Danny situation right now. To all of my single readers / readers whose partner travels: Do you still cook actual meals when you’re dining solo? I almost decided to just go with five-minute scrambled eggs, but I wanted to have leftovers for when Anthony came home on Thursday
Round two, with company, was just as good! Anything with chard is a winner in my books. Have a good weekend!
- Mindy/Danny: What do you think is going to happen?
- Most common critter you spot on your runs?
- Dining solo: Actually cook a meal, or just a bowl of cereal?
