Recovery from Wildflower is going really well. I ended up taking 3 complete rest days, and then somehow found myself committing to a marathon that’s 5 weeks away.
My sister’s last race marathon was in San Francisco two years ago, and she wants to get revenge on the course (it was a rough day). ”Hmmm maybe” turned into “registration confirmed” within 24 hours, and the best part is that my dad is doing it too!
I’m planning on running 16 or 17 miles this Saturday, I have a trail half marathon next weekend, and I’ll do a 20-miler the week after that. It will definitely not be my best marathon, but I think it will be fun (which is kinda weird, since just a few weeks ago I was fairly certain it would be years before I signed up for another one).
We started getting a CSA box last week, and our first two deliveries have been awesome. There was some zucchini this week, and although I usually hate it raw, it’s fine if it’s shaved into ribbons. I usually keep some kind of cooked grain in the fridge, and this week it was brown rice, so I just tossed that with some black beans, green onion, cilantro, lemon juice, and sunflower seeds for a quick, healthy dinner.
