And guess what? Great run. I needed it after yesterday's less-than-spectacular 13 miler. I ran the 3.1 miles in 27:35, for an 8:53 pace.
I realized towards the end of the run that I actually listened to just one song the entire time - That's Not My Name, by the Ting Tings. Clearly still getting the hang of this listening to music while running thing. (Only on the TM, I still can't handle it at all outside).
While I was running my homemade soup was simmering away on the oven. I was so proud of what I THOUGHT would be a healthy, tasty meal. It was certainly healthy. The base was a mix of lentils, barley and split peas:
And then I added a chicken bouillon cube, some leftover roast chicken from last night's dinner, chopped carrots and leftover corn. The final result:
I actually didn't mind the taste, but hubby put it best : "This would be a really good wartime meal." I don't even know how to take that, other than it clearly looks like gruel. What, you don't like grey mush? But it's HEALTHY!
You win some, you lose some. I made a massive pot of that soup so I'll be eating it for a week, with no help from Tim. He finished his bowl politely, but had three waffles with chocolate sauce for his second course. Boys.
Do you listen to music when you run? Any earbud/headphone recommendations?
Outside, never. I hate fiddling with stuff and always find my headphones slipping out. I have been listening to music lately on the TM though, and I really enjoy it.
Would you eat something that tastes bad because it's healthy?
NO! With the exception of some vitamins which taste horrible, I won't eat anything that tastes bad because it's good for me. I just try to find ways to get the nutrients from something else. Life is too short to eat food you don't enjoy!
