Last week was the start of the Freihofers Training Challenge (yes, you have one more day to sign up hereif you’re local!), but I wasn’t up to attending. Today I got out there early and ran .75 miles, took a break for some photos, then ran back .75 miles — no walk breaks. Don’t ask me why.
Then another 1.34 with the group, very easy, mostly walking, although I did run between people to make sure everyone was okay.
A really nasty, rainy, raw day. Feeling kind of eh (still kind of back & forth with it), but did 2 easy miles on the mill. Again with no walk breaks. Again don’t ask me why.
Feeling better this morning, and especially happy that the forecast rain was taken out of the forecast — and it did stay dry. Back mentoring and many of my friends were there this week. Did roughly a mile of mostly walking (they’re on 20 minutes of 90 seconds run, 2 minutes walk, so not a whole lot of running yet).
Ran with one friend afterwards for a couple of miles (no walk breaks) and called it good.
Favorites of the week
Did you see my post on Instagram about our first try from Butcherbox? (You’re following me here, right?). Mr. Judy was salivating over all that meat when it arrived — we don’t eat a lot of beef, generally (they also have chicken and pork). I did the chuck roast in my InstantPot and it came out great.
I’ll write a review of Butcherbox when we’ve tried a few more things (read: in a couple of months, probably!). Right now all you need to know that it’s humanely raised, grass fed, and comes in a cardboard box — no Styrofoam at all (but obviously dry ice).
If you use my link here, I might get something (we’re not exactly sure what). The roast was great — that’s all we’ve tried so far (there were also some filets, sirloin tips, ground beef, and a couple of hanger steaks).
Got in three runs this week! I think the 5 mile race I was considering is probably not gonna happen next week. I don’t think any of my friends are doing it, and while I’d worked back up to 5 miles, that was before I got sick. There will be other races.
Saw the first bulbs coming up this week while walking the dogs — Spring will come up here — eventually.

Are you big meat eaters?
