Well hello there. It has been awhile.
Key word above- worked.
I have been celebrating a few special people's birthdays in early August.
Happy Birthday MOM and JENNA!
My house is overflowing with fresh C.S.A. (Community Supported Agriculture) produce.Corn-on-the-cob in a plastic bag. (gasp) Shame on me, right? But, I promise the bag was recycled as an Oscar-poo-picker-upper.
Bright red peppers.
I FINALLY planted some fresh herbs after planning to do this for 3 years. What have I been waiting for?
Bruschetta, anyone? This was made with the gorgeous C.S.A. tomatoes, basil from my backyard (!!!), Toasted Asiago Bread from Panera, drizzle of EVOO, drizzle of Balsalmic, and goat cheese crumbles.
Yes, I just said Goat. Cheese. Crumbles. Search for them in your grocery store if you didn't know about them before this post because they rock. No more messy goat cheese wrappers.
In terms of Workouts - I have gotten back in the swing of things and am currently in FULL half marathon training. Baltimore Half Marathon is October 10th!
- The last two saturdays I have run 8.5 miles. The most recent run was MUCH more comfortable than the first. Improvement is key. (Cant help but think about last year at this time - I was training for a marathon and 8.5 miles was nothing in August.)
- Biked 30 miles this past Sunday. On my heavy mountain bike with huge tires. On a paved path. I tried to stay positive and think about what a great workout I was getting. As all the people on road bikes whizzed by me like I was standing still.
- Swam 30 mins last night. For the first time in months. Felt dizzy afterwards.
- Took today OFF from workouts and plan on a run and Jillian Michaels No Trouble Zones tomorrow.
Off to bed.
