EZ run

EZ run while the turkey was in the oven :)

OMG, even though it is not right for me to say it but hell I am a good cook :)
I bought a 12 pound turkey (yes a lot for myself but it was the smallest I could find) that I marinated overnight with white wine, some vodka and tequila (;)) and a rub of fresh spices salt and pepper. You base and rub the entire the bird inside out and in between the skin stuffing the spices between in. In the cavity I stuffed it with onions, garlic, carrots and celery. Before cooking the bird I drained the marinated and cooked it separated to reduce a bit and use it to braise the bird through the cooking. I also spread some butter all over the skin and into the oven for 3 ½ hrs at 250 degrees and covered. After 2 hrs uncover it and let the skin get nice and brown. After is done leave it under the broiler for 10-20 in to make the skin crunchy :)  Anyway, WOW the turkey was yummy and moist. I also cooked fettuccini with a very light cream sauce and chanterelles mushroom, garlic and thyme mashed potatoes, grilled zucchini, gravy done with the turkey juice/marinate and of course dessert! I ended up cooking the vanilla flan. Needless to say Iam going to have to run a marathon to burn all the food I ate!!!

still feeling sick but much better than the previous two days. I am still spitting nasty stuff (nice visual hey? ;)) I am definitely running tonight at least 20 min EZ cuz I need it! I have the rest of the week off but I am not doing much in terms of thx giving cuz no family around but it is ok, I am planning to cook for MYSELF a turkey, some pasta, salad, veggies and of course some dessert. (I am pondering between vanilla flan or a white chocolate creme brulee) I love cooking hence sometimes I get to pamper myself with personal feast.

I will also work on training plans cuz I have several due for next Monday plus there is a few new additions to the PBM coaching athlete roster (Welcome Alaina and Philip :))


oh noooooooo.... it is snowing, agghhhhhh! it is inevitable, winter is here and that means running with tons of layers, icey roads, trainer, MoFo cold rides, etc, I am freaking out! :)  Oh well, same happens every year… I am still sick but feeling a bit better than yesterday, still I don’t think I can do any running today so I’ll wait until tomorrow.

well, I thought the cold was over but this AM I wake up feeling 50/50, it seems the cold moved to the chest. I don;t feel as sick as last week but I do feel a bit weak and with chest congestion (so coughing) Since this week is unstructured exercising I don't really have to do anything unless I feel like it or feel healthy. Hopefully I can kick this sickness away in the next couple of days though and do some running.
