What’s that in my drawer?
Why, its a jar of almond butter!
Who doesn’t keep almond butter in their drawer? It’s very convenient for days when you bring some orange slices as a snack and realize you need something a little more substantial.
It’s also great when you are looking to spice up a plain ole tootsie roll.
Try it. You’ll like it.
For dinner I wanted a full, delicious meal.
I started by marinading some tofu in a yummy apricot sauce.
I baked the tofu at 420 for 60 minutes alongside a sweet potato.
Usually I microwave sweet potatoes, but I was oddly inspired to actually bake one in the oven this evening. It’s amazing the difference between a potato baked in the oven and one baked in the microwave.
Throw in some steamed asparagus and jalapeno cornbread and I had the complete meal I was looking for.
Melissa was kind enough to bring me some Candy Cane Joe Joes all the way from SoCal!
I had two with a handful of strawberries for dessert.
Mmm… Candy Cane Joes Joes are delicioso!
After a couple frustrating hours or getting my garmin to connect to my computer, I was finally able to upload my splits from that marathon yesterday.
These numbers make me happy.
You can definitely see where I really slowed down around mile 20, but I am very proud of my sub-9:30 pace below that.
It’s really fun to compare those numbers to my last marathon.
I averaged almost a full minute faster per mile at my marathon on Sunday, compared to my marathon last May. Pretty crazy, right?
I plan to do a whole post in the near future on marathon training and my experience this time around compared to my previous marathon. I have some interesting musings I want to express.
Tomorrow morning I have a little treat for you, but you will just have to wait to see what that is. 😉
