I still got my two swims in, 4.2 miles in there. But that is what 210 miles on the bike looks like. Tuesday was supposed to be a double brick day again but with no running it turned into a double bike day. And Thursday turned into a double bike day too, so I ended up with 100 miles from Monday to Thursday. Then the long ride from Saturday was 90 miles on the schedule, and 20 recovery miles on Sunday to wrap things off. That's a lot of time on the steed. Well, 10.5 hours on the bike and 2.5 hours in the pool makes for a 13 hour week., plus the time for strength training and yoga that I got in Wednesday and Friday mornings.
Saturday the new running shoes came in, so I'm ready to try running again on Tuesday. I'm actually going insane not being able to run. I really hope everything is healed up so I can get some miles in this week.
Sunday was a blast. I got to sing in the church choir for the first time in a couple of weeks, and it felt wonderful. We haven't had our regular Wednesday night practices through july, but they start back this week. After church I got in a ride, then we took the kids to see Epic at the cheap theater. It was a pretty good flick!
After that, I found something online about making salsa. I have plenty of hot peppers in the fridge that I've picked from the garden. Here's what we came up with.
4 Jalapeno peppers & 2 Habanero peppers, fresh from the garden
4 cloves of garlic
8 oz tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 a red onion, diced.
Salt & pepper to taste
Throw the peppers & garlic under a broiler, I used the toaster oven. Dice the onion and throw into a container. Rough chop the peppers (no seeds from the habs) and garlic and add the tomato & sauce. Salt & pepper to taste and you're good! Add some lime juice if it's too hot.
I'm calling this "oh, oh, that's right" salsa because the first thing I said after taking a chipful was the mindblowing "oh, oh, that's right" like it was perfect. Heat, flavor, this straight salsa has it all. Everything chops by hand and it's fantastic.
|Habs are a LOT hotter when you grow them yourself in the garden|
We also found an art gallery that was having a first Friday showing, so we wandered around through "Art Space" and all of the different artists and galleries that had art for sale. Some of it was really cool, but some of it was total "who could call that art" crap. We decided to video me wringing sweat out of my shorts and call it ironart. Eventually we also made our way to a great vegan restaurant called Remedy for beer and some dessert. A great night all around.
