Ben and I have had some pretty busy work days and nights since the half-marathon so we were happy to have a simple meal and night in to continue catching up on our episodes of Fringe. I know you have heard me mention I do enjoy my TV time. I know it’s non-productive and lazy, but seriously, there is nothing that relaxes me more. What shows do you regularly watch?
Besides NBC comedies, and our chosen series of the moment, we do not have the same taste in TV. But Ben and I have gone through the Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Battlestar Gallactica, fully caught up on Dexter, Breaking Bad and now working our way through Fringe until we are up to the current season. We love them all and wow, now I just realized that we watch A LOT of TV! (Insert comment from Ben since he is currently reading this post over my shoulder “YOU watch all the TV, not ME”.) Ahem, I’m sorry, but watching football and endless hours of baseball still counts as TV. Am I right? Obviously that is a rhetorical question.
I made a pretty simple meal tonight, no recipes and no real intense cooking time. Fresh cod poached in a combination of white wine and chicken broth (I love the taste of fish cooked in wine), sautéed collard greens with shallots and a splash of olive oil and lemon juice, and my most favorite combination, roasted potatoes with garlic and rosemary. The potatoes have been abundant in my farm share the past two weeks and we have some cool fall temps tonight so thought it was time to roast some potatoes!
Also abundant in my farm share has been Collard Greens. Now, it’s not that I don’t like Collard Greens, but it’s just that I’ve been receiving them a little too often to keep up and I’m a little lost on what else to do with them. I know that some of my Southern friends read this blog so now is your time to share your favorite thing to do with Collard Greens, help!
I realize I did not include a recap of my weekly workout this week and training plan, but I decided to take it easy for a few days after the half-marathon. Here is what I’m thinking for the rest of this week. I’m struggling with exactly how much I should do for my long run this weekend, long enough to keep up for the half next week, but short enough that it doesn’t take too long to recover. Anyone have any recommendations? Obviously from my plan, I am leaning more towards doing the Bay State Half-Marathon than not.
- Thurs – Run 2m
- Fri – Run with Back on my Feet
- Sat – Long Run 9 or 10m?
- Sun – Rest & Foam Rolling
Are you running any races this Fall? It’s the perfect time in New England for races (well, maybe last Sunday was not the best representation), but I remember last year, the weather could not have been more perfect for Bay State. Tell me about your plans!
