Some of you suggested Bella and I should get a team name. Suggestions were:
Team FAB-W (Fran and Bella Walking)
I like this idea (why didn’t I think of it LOL). I have a favorite but I let you choose the name or give a new suggestion. The name with the most votes will be our team name.
Work was very busy yesterday and today (we had 4 sessions for our suppliers) and I had to be at work early. But I also didn’t want to skip another run. So instead of not going yesterday (what I usually do if I have to be at work early) I choose to do the run but make it a bit shorter. I was very pleased with myself that I made this choice. I have to admit that I didn’t workout this morning and choose to sleep in.
Weekend plans: pretty easy weekend ahead. Plan is to run tomorrow and do some household chores after that. Catch up on some TV shows in the afternoon. Sunday morning I have another organized walk planned. Haven’t decided on the distance yet: 5K or 10K because R. said he might want to come with us. He can’t do a 10K due to a foot accident couple of years ago. If he’s going with us we will do a 5K. If it’s just Bella and me, I will decide on Sunday morning what it will be.
Beebox content week 40:
Pumpkin, cauliflower, coriander, cucumber, apple juice, prumes, celeriac, leek, carrot, carrotparsley, pears, spelt bread.
This is going to be an interesting week. I never heard of carrotparsley (will post a photo when I use it, don’t think this is the right translation but the dictionary didn’t know the word), had to google it and it turns out I never had this. It also has been years since I used cauliflower and I don’t use celeriac that often.
Because I don’t like running in the dark all that much, I switched one run from a weekday to Sunday in the week I have Friday off. This way I run 1 run extra in daylight. Because of my cold I’m a bit behind on schedule but since 2 weeks were exactly the same, I skipped 2 runs and move on with my schedule. The weather today was perfect for running although there was a brutal wind. My last running interval was slower because I had to run against the wind. But it was a good run!
Distance: 4.6 K / 2.8 miles
Running: 2-4-5-6-7 minutes.
Paces: 6:15 – 6:21 – 6:30 – 6:35 – 6:40
Weather: dry, sunny, windy, 9C (48 degrees)
Last song on Ipod before finish: Spencer Davis Group – Gimme some lovin’
Insanity Core Cardio & Balance, 37 minutes.
First time I did this workout and I could keep up with all the exercises except for the push ups (I suck at those) and the moving planks. But aside from that it was a good workout.
New week with longer running intervals. I tried to stick to a pace of 6:40/km which worked for 50%. I felt good and it was a good run, not much to tell about it.
Distance: 4.6 K / 2.8 miles
Running: 5-6-7-8 minutes.
Paces: 6:49 – 6:41 – 6:38 – 6:33
Weather: dry, not to much wind, 7C (44 degrees)
Last song on Ipod before finish: Shaggy – It wasn’t me
I had to do 4 x 8 minutes but because of time (see above) I did 3 x 8 minutes. This was my best run since I started this running schedule. It was a good run too.
Distance: 4.1 K / 2.5 miles
Running: 3 x 8 minutes.
Paces: 6:34 – 6:25 – 6:29
Weather: dry, not to much wind, 9C (48 degrees)
Last song on Ipod before finish: Beegees – You win again
Saturday September 28
Lunch: bread and mushrooms from the beebox, I baked the mushrooms with some garlic, then put some mozzarella cheese on top of it and let the cheese melt in the oven.
Dinner was a yellow pepper stuffed with meat, rice and herbs that I baked in the oven for about 45 minutes. Have made this recipe before and still tasted good.
Sunday September 29
I made a pasta dish. I have made it a couple of years ago and made it again on Sunday. I used the broccoli and yellow pepper from the Beebox and added zucchini from the Beebox which wasn’t in the recipe originally. I baked it for 20 minutes in the oven till the cheese was melted. Very tasty!
Monday September 30
A cordon blue (pork filled with ham and cheese) with from the Beebox potatoes and salad.
Tuesday October 1
Used the chicory and potatoes from the Beebox. I smashed the cooked potatoes with some herbal cheese and cooked the chickory. Put it all in an oven dish with ham and cheese on top and cooked it in the oven. I have made this one before and it’s still delicious.
Wednesday October 2
Pork with the last mushrooms from the Beebox, baked potatoes and grilled zucchini (also from the Beebox).
