Last night a line of storms came through so this morning it was nice and cool for my run. 8 miles with lots of cloud cover, 73 degrees and a light breeze but intense humidity. I was drenched by the end. Sure do love this view though…keeps me distracted. My favorite little lake.
I took it easy at a 9:40 pace overall but my very last mile was 8:59…still slow but it was nice to be able to pick it up in the back half.
Topped it off with a few sets of planks, pushups, and did some yoga hip opening stretches. Rolled my calves with my favorite massage stick! It has little foam rollers on it so it feels like you are foam rolling and getting a massage at the same time. Amazing.
Last night I came up with a little veggie dinner for meatless Monday. I have been on a big Mexi kick lately so I decided to whip up some spinach enchiladas.
Here’s what I used-
2-3 handfuls of fresh spinach
2 wedges of light laughing cow cheese
Chopped roasted garlic
1/2 can of red enchilada sauce
Salt/pepper/hot sauce, to taste
Saute the spinach with garlic and a little bit of olive oil in a pan. Add hot sauce/salt or pepper if desired to season the spinach. Add laughing cow cheese and mix until cooked through. Dip corn tortillas in red enchilada sauce, then add spinach mixture and roll up into a nonstick pan. Make as many as desired (this recipe makes about 4 enchiladas) Top w/ feta cheese. Cook in the oven on 375 for about 15-20 minutes.
Add lots of avocado on top…and maybe a little bit more feta. Because it’s delicious.
What’s your favorite Mexican dish?
Do you foam roll/use a massage stick after you run?
