Now, this is sometimes my favorite kind of night:
Come home and run.
Take a shower.
Cook dinner in my pajamas.
My lunch today was not pretty AT ALL, so I didn’t take pictures of it. I had some of the leftover white bean and chard pasta, but the chard had kind of stained the pasta? It still tasted good, but it was pretty ugly. I also had some roasted broccoli with it.
I ended up having a small snack this afternoon just to make sure I had something in my belly in case we got to run.
I had a lot of celery and some guacamole. Mmmm…I think I could eat avocado at every meal.
So, about that run….
We finally got to go!!!
Hello, old friends. I’ve missed you.
It was actually pouring today at lunch and for a good part of the afternoon, so I was scared that we wouldn’t get to go again.
It was still raining on our way HOME from work, but by the time we got home, it was perfect! The rain had stopped, and all the rain had cooled it off a little, too. Sunny and in the high 70s is perfect.
We took it pretty easy today and ran along the river. We ended up doing a little over 3 miles in 31 minutes, and I was happily surprised! Considering that we haven’t been running in almost a month, I’m happy with that. Our first 2 miles were at a pretty good 9:30 pace, but then into mile 3, I had to stop and walk for about 2 minutes because I felt like I was either going to pass out or throw up.
Luckily, I didn’t do either. I did have some side stitches a few times, but that’s pretty normal for me.
I was just so, so happy to be out in the sun and sweating like crazy. It felt great to get out there. I even looked up some races today, so we’ll see which ones I can sign up for soon :)
Did I mention the cooking in my pajamas? I love that.
I was also really looking forward to dinner tonight.
I bookmarked this recipe a long time ago in Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, and finally had it on the menu plan for this week.
Tonight, I made Eggs in a Nest
It’s basically eggs poached in a mixture of onion, carrots, sundried tomatoes and kale, all on top of brown rice.
And I think I have a new favorite combination. Runny yolks + brown rice = amazing. I loved this combination.
We topped our eggs with some smoked paprika and chile garlic sea salt, and had some black seedless grapes on the side.
Perfect and easy dinner!
I’ve got some blog stuff to work on before Top Chef comes on!
What time are you usually in your pajamas / “home” clothes?
