Today's walk was hard. First of all, it was not the best weather. It was rather chilly, windy and started getting rainy as well. But I went anyway.
The weather seemed not to be that tough when I was running. Breathing was fine today, it seems I have built up a bit of fitness already. However, the run was the hardest one yet and I have doubts if it was wise to go on a run today.
Reason is my legs were just in pain and keeping me at a slow pace. I had felt it last few days. Knees and tendons and muscles in the ankle and shin region. My legs felt heavy, slow and tired. But I completed the exercise anyway, I took it slow though. Here are my stats for today's run:
While I have not spotted any signs of runner high I did have the non-stop munchies since my previouws run. Until yesterday actually.
My yesterday munchies drove me to the supermarket, but it was closed due to WWII rememberance. So I had to be creative with the food I had left. Some meat, vegetables and stuff in tin cans. I decided to make some Chili using:
- 2 spoons of olive oil
- 2 onions
- 3 toes of garlic
- 250 grams of low-fat minced meat
- a bit of salt
- a bit of black pepper
- some chili powder
- 1 can of tomatopaste
- 1 green pepper
- 1/2 gourgette
- 1/2 aubergine
- 1 can of kidney beans
- 1 can of peeled tomatoes
- quite some drops of tabasco
I added all these ingredients to the pan in the above order. Just chopped it all up and threw it in the pan, it barely fitted. So I had to leave out some mushrooms. The vegetables don't need to be cooked very long, but you can let it sit on a small fire a bit to blend the tastes. It turned out to be an absolute hunger killer, and it's got all a body needs if you combine it with a glass of milk.
So after my chilly run and my plate of chili it is time to chill out and do some reading in my Ruby Gems book!
