As you may or may not have noticed, I haven’t posted about running for the past few days. My last post about a “run” was on Saturday, and we all know what a disaster that was. My shin still hurts, which is terrible. I decided to take some time off because it was very painful to run and I don’t want to risk injury at this point in the game. Training has been going well and I don’t want to risk losing the marathon that’s two months away still. I have plenty of time to recover (hopefully…) and still be in great shape for the marathon. I kind of wish I had a bike or something so I could be doing some sort of cardio…sadly the gym I signed up for doesn’t open until November otherwise it would be PERFECT right now. I’ll see how I feel tomorrow…maybe I’ll just try going out for a few miles.
it’s all in the shoes
I switched my shoes at work to a less old pair of old running shoes…I definitely need to buy better shoes. Do any nurses/doctors/other people who spend wayyy too much time on their feet have any recommendations for good shoes? I’ve heard about Dansko shoes, but they’re a bit expensive…although worth it if they’re really as great as people say they are. Especially because I bet they last longer than three months, which is about how much I’m getting out of my running shoes! (and that’s with rotation…yikes!)
here comes the bridesmaid
My friend who is getting married actually picked our bridesmaid dresses, as well as the color! This is none other than a major victory, so I’m pumped. This is the winner, color and all (no, that’s not me!):
I headed over to the not-so-local David’s Bridal to try on sizes and placed my order, so it will be all mine in about six weeks! We’re going to wear silver shawls during the ceremony because we have to have our shoulders covered. My friend (another bridesmaid) is making them with her mom, so at least that will cut down on costs a bit.
cooking light presents
My mom sent me a subscription to Cooking Light (yay!) since I always read hers when at home, and they have some tasty recipes. When I got my first issue, I immediately bookmarked some recipes! I started with this Fresh Tomato, Sausage, and Pecorino Pasta recipe.
I haven’t had sausage in awhile since it’s not really all that healthy, but it added a great taste to the pasta. I would definitely make this again! I also had some lemon-y asparagus on the side, which was fantastic. This recipe seemed to make many more the the four servings that the recipe says it makes, which just means I get to enjoy it that much longer!
