7/20/14 Long Run Day
Nice long run today, it was a bit humid but cooler temps and a good breeze helps.
I tried to keep my pace at about 10 minute miles and I was able to do that.
With my average pace being 9:55 for the run.
I felt pretty good and will need to try to keep to my training schedule for the next few weeks. It’s going to be challenging as my work schedule is getting kind of nuts. Mostly due to projects coming to an end and my vacation starting on the 1st of August.

8/19/14 4 Mile Tempo Run
Tried to keep the first 2 miles around 9:15 and miles 3 & 4 at 9:30 so this run was a success. I felt good and looking forward to my long trail run tomorrow.

Nice drop in times for the last 2 miles.
Very happy with this run.

If you’re like me and love pumpkin flavored things, you have to try this. Pumpkin pie “nice cream”. So good. Tastes just like pumpkin pie.  Here’s the recipe:
3 bananas, frozen  1/2 cup of 100% pure pumpkin purée, also frozen 3 tbs nutmeg 3 tbs ground cinnamon  2 packets of stevia in the raw (optional) Crushed walnuts (also optional)
I recommend freezing the bananas for at least 2.5 hours to make sure that the nice cream turns out closer to the consistency of actual ice cream.  I’m thinking about using this as a filling for a frozen vegan pumpkin pie. I’m gonna test it and get back to all of you.  PUT THIS IN YOUR MOUF.

7/13/14 Recovery Run
Tried to keep the pace around 10 minute miles. So the first mile was a bit fast. It all evened out in the end.
I can’t wait for the humidity to get out of here. It was about 84% when I was out running. The temps were cooler that made it bearable but it still needs to go.

7/12/14 Long Run

With the threat of bad weather I was out on the roads early.
The temps were cooler but the humidity was 83%
I felt good and the ache in my right knee was not an issue.
I did have some allergy problems so it was hard to breathe through my nose for about 2 miles.
Not a big problem and I only ate 2 bugs. … I think.

8 vegetables that you can regrow again and again.

Scallions

You can regrow scallions by leaving an inch attached to the roots and place them in a small glass with a little water in a well-lit room.

Garlic

When garlic begins to sprout, you can put them in a glass with a little water and grow garlic sprouts. The sprouts have a mild flavor than garlic and can be added to salads, pasta and other dishes.

Bok Choy

Bok choy can be regrown by placing the root end in water in a well-lit area. In 1-2 weeks , you can transplant it to a pot with soil and grow a full new head.

Carrots

Put carrot tops in a dish with a little water. Set the dish in a well-lit room or a window sill.  You’ll have carrot tops to use in salads. 

Basil

Put clippings from basil with 3 to 4-inch stems in a glass of water and place it in direct sunlight. When the roots are about 2 inches long, plant them in pots to and in time it will grow a full basil plant.

Celery

Cut off the base of the celery and place it in a saucer or shallow bowl of warm water in the sun. Leaves will begin to thicken and grow in the middle of the base, then transfer the celery to soil. 

Romaine Lettuce

Put romaine lettuce stumps in a 1/2 inch of water. Re-water to keep water level at 1/2 inch. After a few days, roots and new leaves will appear and you can transplant it into soil.

Cilantro

The stems of cilantro will grown when placed in a glass of water. Once the roots are long enough, plant them in a pot in a well-lit room. You will have a full plant in a few months.
