So that means 165-30=135
Ran: 3 miles in 29:32 minutes. (HELLO! I did it!)
Ok. Admittedly, this wasn't easy. But man, I did it! I had the treadmill set to 6.0 mph and hung out there for as long as I could. Then, I bumped it up to 6.5 and to 7 and to 7.5. Well, I was ALL OVER the shop. But never below 6.0. My feet were on FIRE.
This is taper week. I am wonky during taper week.
During my run today, I thought, "Man! I should have done more tempo runs." "Man! I should have done more speed intervals." It's like, I can train my body to run faster. And I haven't been doing so. I have been cruising.... Man. Oh. Man. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.
I also wondered about shoes and have a question for you.
I have a pair of Adrenalines that has 350ish miles (definitely under 400). I have trained pretty much exclusively in this pair of oldies.
Then, I have a new pair of Adrenalines (same model, same color, same size). I have ran probably less than 30 miles in it, with an 8-mile run as the longest distance I have ran in that new pair.
Which one would you wear during your half marathon? Old vs. new?
I love to cook. And I have been cooking A LOT lately. I am just inspired by I-have-no-idea-what!
Hence, this explains the excessive number of food pictures. Anyway, today's meal revolved around a sauce - aji verde (Peruvian green sauce made with cilantro, jalapenos, olive oil, vinegar, salt, garlic, and sour cream).
Other than using 3 jalapenos, I cannot tell you the exact measurement of the other ingredients.
It was made by feel. But the liquids were about 1 tablespoon each).
So, do a quick search on google to get the proportions.
The sauce was delish!
It was fresh, light, a hint of heat, and it was green! A pretty shade of green.
This was great over a roast chicken thigh. But I can imagine dipping toasted flat bread in it too.
Ok. I really love to cook. And I love to cook for people I love.
To me, cooking is more than just slapping a meal together and keeping a person from starvation.
Sure, there are days when I threw stuff together and can't be bothered,
but most days, I do try to go above and beyond when it comes to food.
I take pride in my cooking.
And I take pride in running too.
