After two indulgent dinners Friday and Saturday night, I was in desperate need of some cardio. Saturday, Kevin and I completed Core Synergistics, which is a great workout, but I really just needed a longer run.
Sunday morning was a great weather day for running. Completed a 10k (6.2 miles) loop in Patapsco State Park. I don't enjoy wearing a watch because I become obsessed with it, so it was about an hour of running. There is a great paved path right along the river in the Orange Grove area and you even get to cross two swinging bridges.
The other day, I updated my Race Schedule page with the list of 2010 races I plan to run/bike. I don't have many running races planned this spring, and it feels pretty relaxing to not have to run a certain amount each week.
I want to see this P90x program all the way through since last night we took our "day 30" pictures and I actually noticed some differences between them and the pictures from 30 days ago. If I get really ripped, maybe I will even get the courage to post them here.
On May 8th, I am planning to bike the 100k (62 mile) course of the Tour de Cure bike ride. I need to dust off my road bike and start training for that. Spin class is there, I just need to attend more regularly.
Last night, I finally experimented with the Quinoa that I bought a few weeks ago. I threw together some random items and ended up with a pretty tasty vegetarian feast.
This was my first time tasting Trader Joe's Sweet Potato Bisque and I loved the sweetness of this soup.
It went nicely with the spicy Veggie Masala Burger.
Once the quinoa was done, I seasoned it with Coriander, Turmeric, Cumin, and Red Pepper. Basically my own version of curry powder.
All together and topped with a spoonful of 0% Plain Greek Yogurt. I treated the soup like a sauce and mixed everything together before eating. I was surprised how the quinoa soaked up all of the soup. I was also surprised how much Kevin and I enjoyed this meal. I will definitely be making this again.
We also munched on edamame for the "green factor". Although I never can get it to taste like it does at a restaurant. Anyone know how they do that?
Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday.
