Wait for it....
Have a rest day. While I'd like to celebrate, I think my body has deserved a day off and today looks like the day. Fine by me!
It seems like like lately, everyone is complaining about record heat. I'm with you---I get drenched in sweat when I step outside, and any runs after 7am are crazy talk. The one upside? Salads. Nothing tastes as refreshing for a summer lunch than a salad, and I'm going crazy with them right now. Everything I like to eat gets put on a bed of lettuce and it's instantly better.
Today's was a bed of organic baby greens and radicchio with a mix of brown and wild rice, strawberries, peaches, almonds, and flax seeds. I've been big on rice on my salads lately--kind of new to me and a year ago I would have been confused, but I promise it works and tastes great! With the forecast looking like this for the next 10 days, I have a feeling a LOT more salads will be in my future:
I've been slacking on my weekly workout recaps lately, but I'll be bringing them back soon. In their stead, my May running recap is as follows:
Total Running Miles: 122
Races: Scenic City Trail Half, Fairmount Memorial Day 5k
Longest Run: 13.1 Miles
Anyone running today in honor of National Running Day?
What's your favorite food to eat in the summer?
Well, this salad was up there, but let's be honest---it's going to have to be something ice cold. Frozen yogurt or an ice cream come would have to my favorite summer eat!
Really random question now: Is there any way to incorporate PB in a salad?
I love PB. I love salad. Somehow I can't bring myself to mix the two. If anyone has a suggestion for a way to do so, you get one million blogger brownie points. I'm not really sure what those are, but they have to be good, right?!
