Eating the Rainbow
As my race is coming up relatively soon, per Rick's suggestion, I've been trying to eat better (the sleep thing isn't happening so much, but hopefully when things calm down I'll get more). Since Safeway has pretty bad produce, I decided to visit the local farmer's market instead.
I am definitely going every week! I got a ton of good, healthy, fresh food for a great price. The vegetables all look amazing, and it was hard to resist buying everything that I saw. I got 4 zucchinis for 80 cents, a gorgeous bouquet of cilantro, beautiful orangish red bell peppers, homemade basil garlic pasta, and tasty strawberries, as well as my personal favorite, blackberry honey, which tastes fabulous! (lots of other stuff too, as you can see)
In running news, I did a track workout tonight, which went really well. We did 4 miles, and one of them (the timed one) took 7:43!!!!
Now, that's unremarkable for most of you, but I don't think that I've broken 8 min/mile since I started running again in college. And never off a treadmill. I'm pretty excited :D
I'm running with a new friend tomorrow, and fear I'll completely embarass myself (he runs sub 8 minute miles normally! I've warned him though, that I'm ridiculously slow, so hopefully he's not too bored!)
And then 20 on Friday
