WIP Wednesday: Sweat. Eat. Repeat.

I had a whole other theme thought out for today's post, but I'll have to save that for another time.  So look forward to hearing about some fiber purchases I made last weekend.  But right now, I'm in recovery mode from this evening's workout, and that's all I can really think about.

I'm in the second week of Hal Higdon's Novice Supreme marathon training program, which specified a three-mile run for today.  I usually run on the treadmilll before joining my group exercise class, but I only rack a little over two miles in 30 minutes, then give myself about ten minutes to refocus on whatever torture the trainer has devised.  Could I squeeze in another mile?  And then do a whole other workout?

You know it!

Now, the question remains, can I get out of bed tomorrow morning?

I'll deal with that hurdle when the alarm goes off.  For now, I'm just digesting my delicious post-workout dinner.  Brace yourselves, because I did not have pancakes.  No, this time I went with something completely different: chana masala from Tarka Indian Kitchen, and Tutti Frutti frozen yogurt.  Aside from the proximity to frozen yogurt, I chose Tarka because I've recently found that I quite like Indian food, making my dad and I the only two who do.  So we have to take advantage of our opportunities to enjoy it, and I have to make my way through a menu full of wonderful-sounding dishes.  Chickpea curry?  Yum.  And Taro frozen yogurt for dessert?  Double yum.

I don't have an action shot of my cardigan sleeve sitting in a pile of basmati rice, you'll be happy to know.  But I am a few inches into the ribbing there, and I've added a few layers of wrapping onto my single cop.  If I can run three miles, then bust out a great group exercise class, I'm sure I can get these WIPs turned into FOs soon!
