This morning, I managed to wake up and go to spin class. Go me! It was nice to be back at spinning, and it was a teacher I'd never had before - she was pretty good! I'm not too sore (yet) from spin, but I feel like I got a good work out. I definitely am going to try to keep going to spin class once (or maybe if I'm feeling crazy, twice!) a week while I become more into running. I get bored with the same type of exercise, so I think it's good to continue to mix it up.
After spin class, I was starving, so I made tuna with three-herb pesto. The tuna was supposed to be broiled, and I once again set my fire alarm off approximately 11 times while I broiled. I have heard that you are supposed to leave your oven slightly ajar when broiling if you have an electric oven - and I'm wondering if this would help. Also, the recipe said to broil for 8-10 minutes, but after just 5 my tuna was definitely done, and maybe even slightly more well done than I like it - any more and it would have been a tragedy. I'm not sure if this is because of the broiler, the recipe, or both. The three-herb pesto I made to go with it was DELICIOUS! It calls for all fresh herbs, of which I had none, so I can only imagine how even more delicious it would have been had the herbs been fresh.
Sidenote: at the barbeque today, there was the MOST TERRIFYING STORM EVER. Mostly because, I kid you not, the lightning seemed so close to us I could have sworn it struck in L's back yard. Eek!
