Yesterday I went to aerobics, and first of all, a newbie turned up wearing (I kid you not) a roll neck woolly jumper. She must have been boiling by the end!
Anyway, that was all fine and dandy.
Today was a 6 mile run (fartlek- ooh get me using the proper runner terms!)- I like this because it is a bit like intervals (eg you get the endorphins from running fast) but you can stop/ slow down when you want. Kind of. Anyway the 6 miles went well, a slow warm up and then 3 miles at 9.54 (what?????? that was actually my average speed! I am always excited to see anything under a 10!) and finished, get this, average speed 9.04. I cleaned my glasses just in case I read it wrong! To be fair the first few miles as well as being a warm up, were gently uphill, in the rain and facing into the wind. The next ones were slightly downhill with the rain easing off and then stopping, and the wind blowing me home! But I am still taking it!
Dinner was the pumpkin quinoa tofu experiment.
The results are in and it turns out this is just as yummy as plain pasta. Although a little drier- I think the quinoa soaks up more liquid as it cooks in the oven so I might have to add something next time. But still delicious and so creamy. I love the beetroot too- pink food 🙂
I made some rice pudding with the last of my Kara coconut milk too (no picture coz I was hungry like the wolf).
I have a question about feet;
Normally after most showers I like to put cream on my feet as I don’t want too much dry skin. But then I read somewhere that it is good to have harder skin on the feet to help with running for long amounts of time. So come on all you runners- do I let the skin dry up or keep going with the cream?
Random, but hopefully helpful.
