Week one of marathon training complete! I ran a total of 15.52 miles this week, the long run was 6 miles. It was hot and slow, it was a hot weekend in Chicago. Only 21 more weeks to go and close to 500 more miles. Friday night is pizza night for the foreseeable future, carb loading for Saturday morning long runs. I made my favorite pizza crust using Trader Joe’s white whole wheat flour. The dough was a lot drier, more like a tart crust than pizza, but still good. Topped it with salad greens tossed in this lemon Parmesan dressing <— best dressing eva! Filled our bellies before heading to a street fair in the neighborhood.
Onion and Orange Marmalade. I could not resist throwing in a slice of cooked bacon, and I used chili flakes instead of fresh chilli. As suggested I shared it with an exceptional sister. Added bonus the exceptional parents were in attendance too.
Sunday we went to a play and grabbed a fabulous small plates Italian dinner with some friends we have not see in quite sometime. Good times! Another quality weekend. Damn you Monday why do you always comes so soon.
