Not that I’m trying to win anything, poke that I am. But you can only baby yourself for so long!
I made the executive decision last night to work out even though I had been laid up with a headache for twenty hours. The logic went thusly: “I have Wednesdays off anyway, so who cares if this headache comes back?” So I strapped on my sneaks and took Penny to the park for…FARTLEKS!
You can so tell I’m a novice runner by how awestruck I am by the wonder of speed training. I just love it, though!
Weirdly, since fartleks are so kind of loosey-goosey in terms of speed, time, distance, etc., I ran exactly the same distance I ran on Thursday (2.43 miles). Weird, huh? (Yeah, I said loosey-goosey.)
Came home and did my own creative rummaging as Alex was off a-coaching.
Basically I just sautéed whatever veggies were in the house, added cumin, paprika, & chili powder, threw in some red lentils, and let that simmer. In a flash of last minute inspiration, I added a squirt of lime juice, and served the whole thing over brown rice. It looked super gross:
But it was sooo good, and filling (which, you will find, is crazy important to me – I’m a hungry girl!).
Even Alex said it smelled good when he got home, though I doubt he’d eat it.
What do you make when money’s tight?
