Thanks everyone for switching over to the new link. I decided to switch to wordpress for a variety of reasons. I’ve heard it’s a lot better than blogspot, and after playing around with it for a bit, I decided to switch. I’m still working out some details with the layout and pages.
I hope everyone likes the new setup. And thanks again for switching over!
So, yesterday Ben and I decided that we were going to go for a run after work. Well, we got home, changed and looked at each other. Clearly our wires crossed somewhere, because I was in a tank and shorts and Ben was in long sleeves and pants. Opps. I figured it probably wasn’t too cold out (I don’t like running in the cold – my lungs haven’t adjusted yet). I could ease my lungs into some milder weather. Plus running outside is more interesting than the treadmill. So I changed and off we went on a nice outside run.
Oh I’m sorry, did I say nice? Cause I lied. It sucked. It was super cold and I never felt like I could catch my breath. And my hands were frozen. We normally run to a spot about 1.5 miles out and then back. We got half way to the spot and Ben asked if I wanted to turn around.
But not to let the workout go to waste, we turned the return trip into a speed workout. We’d sprint to a pole, then light wog (jog slash walk) for a bit. Then sprint some more, and wog some more. In the end, it turned out to be not a bad workout.
We also really needed to go food shopping. So last night I pulled together a quite random dinner: eggs and quinoa. I had never made quinoa before, but it is super easy. I really liked it. It makes a great base to a meal (as you would use rice or pasta). Since I’m trying to cook new foods, and move away from pasta based meals, I consider this a success.
I mixed my quinoa with a dab of olive oil, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. It was very tasty. In fact, I some came with me to work today for lunch!
