Ummm… the road back to training last week hit some serious road blocks in the form of work and humidity. This means 3 runs all week, 2 of which I felt like I just paid ‘leg’ service to. (I better run-I don’t want to-let’s get this over with.)
Sunday started out much better:
I headed out to meet up with our running group who are still hosting maintenance runs until our next clinic starts. I was pleasantly surprised to see about 20 people out. It was a hot but a great 60 min run…we actually had to slow down as we were booking it at one point. ** Note how matchy-match I was…even my shoes were white and pinkish…It was noted by my runner friends how well I coordinated. I noted they didn’t say I was coordinated..just my clothes.
The rest of the day was listening to a coaching talk about Triathlon race strategy for next week’s race in Milton. There are a few newbie triathletes so it was interesting to hear the various rules:
-if you litter on course, you can be DQ’ed
- do not touch anyone’s stuff/equipment in transition…again a DQ
-whenever you are in possession of your bike, your helmet strap must be attached..
Too much stress for me – I’ll stick to running but will cheer those nutty ones on.
The foodie in me is always on the lookout for healthy but tasty meals to have…especially since I do.all.the.cooking…
Last night’s dinner was a keeper:
Raw veggies - Red and orange peppers, green onion, sugar snap peas, carrots, cucumber - mint, cilantro, chicken, cooked rice noodles mixed with a dressing of soya sauce, lime juice, ginger, sesame oil and brown sugar.
Tonight is homemade guac with chicken, corn and green. I am hungry already…..
