A weekly round up: eats, workouts, watches, and reads. In this week's edition there's no news on my job search and I'm ramping up the running again.
Well, I may not have an update on the job search situation but I do have a ton to say about it...look for a separate post in the next few days.
Nothing new or notable. Hubs cooked chicken parm for dinner one night;-)
I made us salmon bowls the next night (dressing from here but without the wasbi, air fried from frozen salmon, Costco stir fry veggies, rice, avocado, and sesame seeds and wonton for toppings.
And a round of chicken fajitas for Sunday dinner.
I haven't said very much about running for a while, so hold on to your hats because that's about to change drastically. This was the first week with a long run of more than 10k and my highest mileage week of 2022 so far @ 25.75 miles.
Monday: 4 miles treadmill
Tuesday: 3 miles treadmill
Thursday: don't fall asleep on me...3 miles treadmill
Friday: I was determined to get outside no matter what. The temperature was under 20, which is colder than I will usually run outdoors in, but everything else was right: low wind, bright sunshine, and ice free roads. The air was a touch harsh and I felt sluggish in the first mile, but my runner's spirit kicked up and I went all in. I didn't have a plan other than to keep running faster, so I did 4 miles of negative splits, a cool down mile to get home at a very slow and relaxed pace, and then another quarter mile fast just to show off. 5.25 miles total.
Saturday: 7.25 miles with no weather drama. I planned a hilly route, but I was much slower than the day before and the further I got the more I was tempted to change it up to avoid my giant hill in mile 3. But also the further I got I was like I just couldn't look away so I kept going up.
Speaking of Podcasts
There's a new season of The Dropout podcast! (shoutout again to Stephany for bringing this to my attention). The Dropout is about Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos, and season 2 covers the trial in an in-depth and not-boring way.
