thursday afternoon, i had to pick up my car from the shop ($4500 of undercarriage damage b/c i ran over a curb i didn't see. which is also why i went to get some new glasses...anyway. thank you, car insurance.) that kind of messed my schedule, but no big deal because it is a recovery week for me and i've just been cruising though workout-wise. as usual, life turns up the volume during rest weeks and i felt way more time-pressed than usual. probably becuase i try to do a lot of things i let go when i'm having bigger training weeks. anyway, after i got my car, i realized i could squeeze in a quick and easy run. but also that i had only heels for shoes and that wouldn't work (unless i wanted to practice racing for that dollar in my night job). just kidding. and i had no "running" clothes.
so i ran barefoot on the beach. in non-technical, yet still appropriate (cotton! gasp!) clothes for doing soo... and i got to see this sunset.
also, james has been a gem and posted a chicken veggie tortilla soup recipe i made over on Vo2maxxed (our healthy food blog that sometimes gathers a little dust). this was a big deal b/c i've made it many times and there is always something missing. we found that something this time: enchilada sauce in the broth.
