So this morning I went to make a breakfast squash–essentially a squash egg vessel. However, once I started cutting my squash, I realized that I had bought kabocha instead of delicata. I knew that delicata was yellow, and even though kabocha is green, I thought “a ha! I finally found it!” So I proceeded to make roasted kabocha squash from Nom Nom Paleo. And now I think I have found my new favorite squash! Its starchy, and soft, and semi-sweet with the coat of coconut oil. It’s perfect.
To keep the great day going, I purchased my new baby: Garmin Forerunner 610. It has so many features that makes it the perfect little gadget, from personalized screens to the virtual runner to the heart rate monitor. I love it already!
I went for a run after work and felt like an all-star athlete. With my Garmin and my ProCompression socks on (that just make you feel “pro-runner”), I set off at a 7:30 pace. This slowed as the run went on and the bottom of my feet began to feel blistered. When I finally figured out how to stop and save my data, I found I ran 6 miles in 49:42 (8:17 pace). I also learned my theory of thinking I burn about 100 calories for every 1 mile is inaccurate. I burn about 3/4 of that. Which is just good to know.
Dinner was the same as yesterday, with some added kabocha squash. Now it’s time for my guilty pleasure…PLL!
