All my weird mixing up of which run to do on which day worked out perfectly this weekend. It was mighty cold and windy yesterday, and I wouldn't have enjoyed a long run in those conditions. I did my very hilly four-mile loop in 53 minutes; I was supposed to do 3 miles at a 13:53 pace. More miles, faster time, and I was fine, knowing it would be over soon.
Last night it got very cold and snowed a teensy bit. Not even enough to cover the ground, but it does look like powdered sugar [mmmmmmm] out there this morning.
My left knee, which has been problematic in the past, is kind of ouchy this morning. Good day for a rest, don't you think?
Here's the soup we had for dinner yesterday. Recipes, for me, are like knitting patterns: They can always be tweaked. I added a splash of sesame oil with the soy sauce, and threw half a bag of whole wheat noodles into the crockpot about halfway through the cooking time, omitting the noodles called for. It was quite a hearty chicken soup. Good for runners and souls. Clicking on the recipe will bring up a larger version to print out. I hope. Enjoy!
