Obviously yesterday all I could talk about was the new kitchen set-up. And yes, progressing from microwave to oven is a massive improvement. But there's one extra benefit I forgot to mention.
Where we are staying is on a beautiful BIG piece of land. I have access to built-in, private trails and a lake to run around!
I can't believe it! This will help me mourn the end of my gym membership (t-minus 10 days). Today I managed a bit of running on the trails, and some loops around the lake. Totaled 5 miles. In the beginning I was frustrated with my pace, forgetting that *hello* I'm not running on a flat road. Once I got over the slower pace (about 9:45 overall) I relaxed and enjoyed the scenery. Hubs joined me for my warm-up walk and snapped some pics of me once he was heading home.
Haha! See that last one? I'm so busted--Garmin checking!
Yesterday I got an awesome package in the mail--a box of honey stinger energy chews from I Run Like A Girl. I haven't used them for actual "fuel" yet--but as a snack, delicious! I had to wrestle them away from hubs, they taste amazing! The flavor is lime, and I will definitely be buying these in the future.
Alright guys, I'm off to scroll through your amazing recipes and decide what tonight's dinner will be. So excited to make good use of the oven, yes!
Where do you get your recipes/meal ideas from?
I don't own a lot of cookbooks, since I look up most recipes up online. Lately I've been drooling over blogs for meal ideas too.
What is your first choice for a place to run: a track, a flat paved road, treadmill, or trail?
I guess I would say first choice is treadmill. How bad is that? I love controlling the environment--temperature, incline, speed. Of course I don't like it all the time--long runs are best on a trail or a flat paved road. Track = not my favorite!
