Hope you’re all having a nice day so far! I was able to get home from school in time for lunch today — what a treat. Not having to pack lunch was awesome.
Still eating my way through the leftover Sweet Potato Lentil Chili (plus quinoa)! This was the last installment — I’m officially sick of it. Just froze the last two portions.
To mix things up, I added some leftover black beans, olives, and parsley to it this time, in addition to the feta. Great combination! I <3 olives.
I liked the addition of the black beans, too — mixed up the texture a bit.
I enjoyed some grapefruit on the side. Mmmm…
Before heading to class and getting some biochem studying done with a classmate (yet another quiz tomorrow), I went for my usual Thursday early a.m. run with my girl Elle.
Check out those gorgeous fall trees!
We had a great run — made even better by the fact that it was light when we arrived! No more scary super dark runs.
- Mile 1: 9:04
- Mile 2: 9:25
- Mile 3: 9:15
- Mile 4: 8:38
- 0.3 mile nubbin: 9:25 pace
Total mileage: 4.30. Total time: 39:09. Average pace: 9:07. We did our usual hilly route!
I wore my compression sleeves again — still seem to be helping! Yay.
Time to get organized! I have a bunch of assignments to work on for school and need to finish studying for biochem, plus I need to pack because I’m flying to MIAMI tomorrow!! Matt’s been working on site at a client’s office down there for the past few weeks and will be there through the end of the year; as part of his usual out of town perks, he can either fly home on the company or fly someone to him on the company. Free flight combined with free hotel since he has to be there for work = free weekend vacation in Miami! We’re excited I’ve never been to Miami before — anyone have any recommendations for places to eat/things to do?
Have a great Thursday!
