And my Tuesday is spicy. Last night I made this gumbo and my body is still in flames on the inside I think. I don’t know what got into me when I chose this recipe because it took me approximately four hours to cook. Also I have about seven gallons of gumbo so if anyone in the DC area would like to come over and take home a bucket let me know.
Not that I’m complaining! It was pretty tasty although quite fiery. I served it over brown rice and did not use a cup of olive oil as the recipe (insanely?!) calls for — I used a half cup and it was plenty oily for me.Back to running. This week is my last high mileage week and then I am DONE with the intense training! I covered 10.5 miles and the highlight of the run was definitely when I ate my first bug of the season around mile 7. A little gnat flew right into my mouth. LOVE IT.
The perks of running double-digit miles before work include getting to watch the sunrise every morning.As well as get first dibs on street furniture. Check out this nice ottoman on Euclid and Ontario NW! It comes with clothes, VHS tapes, and old books as well.Another highlight of my run was picking up the pace for 3.2 miles as part of Abby’s KickAss 5k! I can feel that I’m getting faster after putting in so many miles over the past few weeks and hope I continue to stay strong for this last bit of training. More to come on that later because unfortunately the real world is calling my name and I have to go embrace it now.
Have a good day!
- Do you like spicy foods?
- Which is prettier: sunrise or sunset?
- Have you ever run a 5k or a “virtual” race?
