Spaghetti squash, round 2
I’m still not back to taking photos of all my eats, but I thought there were a few things worth remarking about today.
Like this giant carrot!
Yeah, ignore the Diet Pepsi, it was a moment of weakness and I found it to be rather nasty, so I won’t be doing that again for a while. I wish it had at least been a Coke Zero.
I also had an AWESOME run today. We did 4.32 miles in about 45 minutes, including stopping for a red light.
It is amazing how good I feel after a run these days. I’m seriously considering keeping it up, perhaps running in some races next year. Like the Kentucky Derby Festival Mini-marathon?
I ran it in 2008 and then walked in it this year, so I think perhaps it’s time to run it again. I had decided earlier this year to stick to running shorter distances and that has worked for a while, but I think I’m up for the challenge again.
Check out my running page for more. I’m sure it’ll be updated soon 😉
My biggest concern with running this much is that it makes me insanely HUNGRY. I didn’t gain any weight while training for the mini-marathon in 2008, but what was hard for me was transitioning between eating that way and eating like a person who doesn’t run 20+ miles a week.
But I think if I do this again, it will be different this time. I’ve learned so much more about food in a year and a half than I ever thought I could. And I knew a lot then!
I know more about what foods my body reacts to (good and bad) and what foods are best for recovery. Plus it will be fun to see how sticking to a vegan diet works into training.
What do you guys think? Should I do it?
For dinner, I decided to try spaghetti squash again.
I made it the exact same way as last time. Oh, and I started off with some lovely wine.
By the time it was done cooking, I was so hungry that I just threw a little bit of spaghetti sauce and garlic on top of the “spaghetti” and stirred. Sorry, I got lazy!
Simple, yet delicious.
I also had some leftovers. Not bad, 3 meals for $2.25!
I need to experiment with more toppings and see if I can’t come up with a great recipe 🙂 I seriously doubt I’ll eat spaghetti again, this is so much better!
I’ve already had some cinnamon toast for dessert, so I think some peppermint tea is next. Then to bed early!
I took the day off tomorrow but I still have quite a bit going on so a good night’s sleep is definitely necessary.
