oh my god, you guys! the impossible happened!
on my saturday run, my beautiful spring-like saturday run in the park, i finally hit my target of running a 5k! 3.13 miles in 35:24! the official race is 2 weeks away- so as long as i can maintain the mileage and don’t injure myself, i feel like i’m in good position to finish and be proud. i am rather glad it’s not january anymore. training in sub-freezing temps is SO not my jam. the issue now is rain. currently i’m avoiding it.
meanwhile, for as much as i’ve been running, it’s also been a game of “how many things can i make that are completely counter-productive to all my hard work?” last week was a simple vanilla bean panna cotta, and shortbread cookies. i had recently taken possession of some sheet gelatin, and wanted to see what i could make with it. when i saw how easy this panna cotta recipe was, i had to try it. and it’s true, if it takes you longer than 5 minutes to put together, you have probably done something wrong. a few hours in the fridge and ta-da! gelatin. it’s magic. and the shortbread? oh lordy, i won’t be ordering the girl scout trefoils anymore.
this week i have another project i’ve been gearing up for, and am excited to finally put it to the test. more on that another time.
