Our Spring-like weather didn’t last and today was raining and gross out. I was a bit sore from yoga, especially my neck for some reason, and thought about skipping my workout, but ultimately decided to go. There were only two miles on the training plan so it was pretty easy to convince myself to go. I ran the first mile at 6.0mph and the second at 6.2mph. My natural pace is probably more around 5.8mph and I keep telling myself that if I want to get faster, I need to run faster. Running at 6.2mph isn’t easy for me, but it’s not impossible. I just have to keep making myself run at that speed and maybe one day, it will feel like my natural pace.
After the gym, I stopped at Whole Foods and picked up some salmon. Even though WF is out of the way, I wanted to make sure that if I was eating fish, I was making a sustainable choice and I didn’t think I could do that at Kroger. I bought Alaskan Wild Coho salmon and used this recipe minus the onion because I didn’t feel like cutting it up.
With the salmon, I also made Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash.
It was a pretty dinner, but I wasn’t really a fan. The salmon had bones in it which I didn’t like. I think that my six months of vegetarianism last year really changed my eating habits. Even though I do eat fish and seafood a little bit now, it just doesn’t taste as good to me anymore. Even sushi, while still good, doesn’t have the same appeal. I didn’t even eat all the salmon. The apples from the squash were good but the actual squash was kind of bland.
Oh well. I tried. Dinner fails are bound to happen, right?
