A very veggie day....

I hate when I have a plethora of veggies and feel overwhelmed of what to do with all of them.  I guess there are worse problems to have though.  ;-)

I tried to make the best use though of what I had..... 

a throw it all together salad
-lettuce, tomato, leftover soycutash, walnuts, feta and some TJ's balsamic vinagrette

It was delish!  Definitely need to get more of that soycutash from TJ's. 
Lunch time also involved a walk with Reggie.  Then it was back to work. At work I had a camera shy Kashi granola bar for a snack, plus lots of green tea.  

After work I hit the gym, I hate the treadmill but its so hard for me to gauge my pace.  Someday I'll get a Garmin.  
Tonight's Workout
- 1 mile warm up, 8:30 pace
-4.5 miles, 7:20 pace
-1 mile cool down, 8:30 pace for 1/2 mile and then 9 

My foot was bothering me a bit during the last part of my tempo pace, so I cut it back by a half mile.  Luckily I have an appointment with the podiatrist tomorrow.  Although I am worried she is going to recommend rest..... as I have a 20 miler planned this weekend.  Doesn't really jive. 

After the gym, Reggie and I went for a walk and then I threw together a stir-fry for dinner. 
-multigrain tempeh, turnips, collard greens, baby bok choy, garlic, olive oil and a little soy sauce

Another delicious meal.  I've come to the conclusion pretty much any leafy green tastes great sauteed with garlic and olive oil. 

So as I said earlier I finally have a podiatrist appointment.  I think I have plantars fasciitis in both my feet, especially my right foot, and I think something is up with both my big toes.  When I ran the Boston Marathon in April this year, (squimish people might not like this.... warning!!) 

I got blood blisters under both my toenails, so that raised the toenail up and ultimately I lost them both.  The issue now is that my nails have grown back in a little funny, so I want them to get checked out. 

So my suggestion for your marathon shoes.... go up a full size, not just a half a size.  At least for me that is what I need to do.  My feet just swell too much!  

Now a question on the subject of food again.... I want to try and make more vegetarian dinners.  What is your favorite vegetarian dinner? or you top 3 if you cannot decide....

Have a great night!
