Lately my runs have just been mediocre as far as speed goes. I’ve been running at a “comfortable” pace. I haven’t pushed myself in the least bit. I’m to afraid. Afraid to get injured, afraid to be uncomfortable.
Today I did a 5mi run. I decided early on that I was going to push past my comfort zone to a faster speed. My speed still wasn’t where I think it should be, but it was better.
5mi @ 9:27, 47:17.
I felt pretty strong, I stopped twice for a few seconds. The only problem was that it was SO hot!
Tonight for dinner I tried another new recipe. I am all about trying out new recipes. We like to eat around here, and we like to eat different things. Thankfully no one is very picky so that leaves us a lot recipes to try.
Tonight we tried Pasta E Fagiol. The verdict- it was okay. I added chick peas and that kind of ruined it. I thought it would be good. That’s what I get for thinking, and trying to make up my own recipes. It would have been pretty good w/o those chickpeas. We also had fresh green beans, meh. I don’t think I’m a fan of fresh green beans. We’ve had them 3 or 4 times in the last few months and I just can’t get into them. Maybe I’m not making them right, suggestions? Right now I just put them in a pot of water w/ some salt and boil them. I could add some butter, but that kind of takes out the healthy factor.
Good Night, I’m off to do homework!
