I used to be injured all too frequently during my freshmen and summer into sophomore years of college. These injuries would devastate me mentally and physically. If I couldn’t run, I wouldn’t do anything else to compensate, which of course, made things worse for my well being! I just finished my fourth consecutive week without running. Besides wanting to smack every runner who I encounter enjoying the beautiful Wilmington weather, I’ve been happy, healthy and not bitter (mostly)! My tight hamstrings have started to budge in yoga, I finished a route in the climbing gym that I’ve been working on for 5 months, I swam around 800m in the ocean yesterday, and I’m going to try running next week! I’ve really come around full circle with adapting when I hit a road block and can’t run. Optimistic, much? Well, today I am. Ha!
Since I feel the need to post food almost every time I post, here is my delicious lunch from a few days ago:
I LOVE peas! If you are a green pea lover, you definitely need to try making this hummus. I opted for the pecorino romano version (except that I used parmesean).
I haven’t been cooking much since school started, since I climb most evenings at the climbing gym, so I don’t have time to cook when I get home so late. But, I made a week’s worth (oops!) of pasta last night!
Whole Grain Penne with Roasted Broccoli and Pistachio Gremolata
Another serious eats favorite, of course! Get the recipe here !
Have a great Thursday, everyone!
