After working for a bit, I set out on a noontime walk in my neighborhood while chatting with my mom. I believe in active rest days like Meghann. I’ve got Race For The Cure in the morning and am a little sore from my run with Sarah yesterday so I decided a walk would be perfect. When I take complete rest days before races, I feel more sluggish than usual (water retention?) so the best activity for me is just something light. I talked to my mom for an hour – it sure went by fast!
At 1PM I was ready for lunch.
I made a salad out of some fun ingredients in the house. Boy would goat cheese have been nice on this! I really missed it.
- Bed of red leaf lettuce tossed in honey and olive oil
- ~1/4 cup leftover navy beans
- 1 stalk celery
- 1/4 green bell pepper
- A few tablespoons of WHEATBERRIES which I haven’t had in ages!
- 5 strawberries
- 3 chopped dates
- Toasted OhNuts.com pumpkin seeds
I spotted some MORE roach wings in the living room – in the same spot as last time!! GROSS. Makes me think the body is decaying somewhere. I shook out the curtain but didn’t see anything drop. Eeeeks.
I am sipping on some of Maggie‘s tea because I was cold. Matt is napping and we might take a trip out for some groceries a little later. Tonight is going to be low-key because tomorrow is jam-packed with the race early, early, early in the AM and then the annual Great Grapes Wine Festival at Symphony Park!
