The weekend means Long Slow Run. I decided to challenge myself to do 10k. Once I started though, I considered doing 5, but then I switched to 8, but I stuck with it and did 10. It was definitely long and slow taking 1:07. I think that is my slowest 10k ever. It was chilly though, and I’m still getting over some jet lag. I was happy with myself for not stopping, not turning around early. Amazingly, I never felt a need to walk though. I’ll call this progress.
I went to the gym this afternoon. I had a post-run nap, and had to decide between sleeping the rest of the afternoon away, or going to the gym. I chose gym. After the gym, I picked up some groceries, including Polish sausage and beans to make a hearty soup (http://www.foodiewithfamily.com/2012/10/23/hearty-kielbasa-bean-and-vegetable-soup/). The recipe was very easy to follow. And the soup is tasty – the spinach was a nice touch. I did scale down the recipe since I didn’t want to make that much.
