They posted the chip time for Saturday’s race. 2:17:02. 33 seconds off from a PR! I’m so pissed. If it hadn’t rained the entire time, I would have definitely PR’d. Oh well. It’s still pretty damn close, right?
I’m kind of on the hunt for some sort of PR now. I’ve run a bunch of races and it seems like, with the exception of this one, I’m just getting slower. I know I should incorporate more speedwork and tempo runs into the mix if I want to get faster. I’m kind of thinking about running a 5K this weekend. I feel like if I could almost PR in a 13.1 mile race, I can certainly run my little heart out in a 3.1 mile one.
This is one of the more flattering race pictures that I’ve ever had taken. And that’s saying a lot since I kind of look like I want to die.
As you can see from the picture, it’s a really pretty trail. The whole race was on it, so the scenery was nice.
My two friends and I. This would be such a cute picture if my visor wasn’t pushing down on my ears like that.
I pretty much ate like crap all weekend. I got back on track today though. For dinner, I was determined to use up some peppers that I had in the fridge. The easiest thing to do with peppers, imo, is stuff them. I took some leftover beans from last week’s chili and pureed them with some salsa. Then I mixed the bean stuff with Kashi Fiery Fiesta Pilaf. I spooned the mixture into the peppers and microwaved it for three minutes. Then I put cheese on top and microwaved it until the cheese melted. Voila, instant stuffed peppers.
I’m tired. I kind of want to go to sleep. It feels much later than 7:15.
