Before I forget, here’s the corn muffin recipe I used a couple weeks ago. (This is for you, new commenter Tracy.)
I didn’t run today because my legs were kind of tired from the hill workout and because there was a soaking rain all morning. I’ve decided to throw the base mileage plan out the window because it has me running six days a week. Most likely, I will stick to four or five days of running a week (hopefully with a day of cross-training) and just have slightly higher daily mileage.
My friend Paula sent me a belated birthday present today. It was a pleasant surprise as I hurl headlong into the two-week hell that is finals period. (Really, it’s paper-writing period.) She sent me a pair of Brooks Epiphany Shorts and The New York City Marathon Cookbook, which has a lot of tasty-sounding recipes and awesome pictures of runners in short shorts from the 70′s, 80′s, and 90′s. Thank you, Paula, for such spot-on gifts!
I tried to model both the shorts and the book in one picture, but unfortunately, I ended up looking like a creepy weirdo, and you can’t really see either. Whoops.
Tomorrow, I’m getting up at the ass-crack of dawn (which means I should already be in bed) to run with Jessica. This may be a bad decision on my part considering that she usually runs with two boys as running partners.
You may have been wondering why I haven’t mentioned my running buddy Lena in awhile. Unfortunately, the Half Marathon ate Lena’s knee alive, and she has just been diagnosed with Patellofemoral Syndrome, also known as the dreaded “Runner’s Knee.” I am hoping for her speedy recovery because 1) injury sucks and 2) I’m selfish and want my RB back in my life.
