M and I had 2 miles to run today, and let me tell you, it was ROUGH. I feel bad because I'm sure she could have run quite a bit faster without me, but I was struggling. My shins were sore! I don't ever remember having sore shins from spin class, so I'm not sure if that was the reason or not. But this was my first time trying to run the day after a spin class, and I definitely felt stiff. I can't even blame the weather, because although weather.com informed me there was 96% humidity, it was in the 60s and the weather felt great. Thank goodness we only had to go two miles - it still ended up taking us 23:28 which is an 11:38 pace. Oh well. I just hope my legs feel better for my four mile run this weekend!
After I iced my legs for a while, I cooked up some Tomato-Basil Chicken for lunch! This is meal #100 PEOPLE! GET EXCITED! I'm 1/3rd done with this cookbook, can you believe it? This quick and easy meal was very satisfying, with whole wheat egg noddles, tomato, onion, and chicken.
After prepping lunch, I moved on to prepping dinner: Turkey with Wild Rice, Squash, and Cranberries (woohoo #101). Mistake number one in this recipe was buying a whole butternut squash. Last week I couldn't find a whole butternut squash and bought it cubed and pre-peeled. I had no idea what a help that was. Butternut squash is nearly impossible to seed, cut up and peel! Seriously.
