I wanted to use up my leftover bean/rice mix for dinner tonight. I thought about doing another stuffed pepper but decided to get creative instead. I attempted to make black bean burgers out of the mixture. I didn’t have any eggs so I used 1 tbsp flax seed and 3 tbsp water. I mixed that with the bean mixture and pan fried it. Total recipe FAIL.
The outside crisped up but the inside was still the consistency of a bean dip. Oh well, I ate it anyway. I think my bean/salsa to rice ratio was not right. Too many watery ingredients. I tried. This plate is desperately missing a green vegetable. I need to go to the grocery store.
I ran 3 miles during my lunch break today. I figured two days without exercise was sufficient. I’ve read that you are supposed to take as many days of as miles of the race, but I think that’s BS. I’m not going to take two weeks off! I’m kind of at a loss for what to do now though. I am the type of person that thrives on a training schedule. Leave me to my own accord and well, it doesn’t work. I would like to maintain my endurance level. That’s something that I struggle with after every race.
I’m still debating whether or not I should run the 5K on Saturday morning. I’m actually planning on going to the festival later in the day. The only reason not to run it would be because I want to sleep in, but considering I’ve pretty much lost my ability to, that’s not a good reason. I guess I should just sign up. I emailed the race director to see if there was race day registration, which there is, since I’m being so indecisive about this.
