Yesterday when I was running I decided to go for a shorter distance but try to run the entire time. Usually what I do is go for 5 miles but I'll alternate running and walking, typically doing 1/2 running and 1/2 walking distance-wise. My goal is to eventually be able to run the entire 5 miles. So I decided yesterday that I would only go for 3.5 miles but try to run the entire time. I ran most of it but still had to have a few walk breaks but I was noticing on the last 1/2 mile of my run I was grinning from ear to ear...I was having so much fun!! It's crazy b/c I fight with myself all the time about running/working out and I needed a day where I remembered how much fun running is for me. I definitely got a dose of endorphins during my run. I love it when it's fun. Makes me so much more motivated to run again today.
I made the homemade ravioli and pesto last night. The pesto was really, really good. I used 1/2 of the recommended amount of olive oil but added a bit of pasta water and you couldn't tell. It was very yummy. The ravioli was just okay. I've seen several times on the food network where a cook/chef uses wonton wrappers to make ravioli so that's what I used. The wrappers were too thin. I'm going to keep looking for other alternatives for the overly-processed ravioli we usually buy. There's got to be something out there.
Anyways, I've got to get working on this project. Didn't get as much done yesterday as I needed to get done and I've got another project to check on this morning as well.
