Its barely been 5 days since I ran my first mini marathon. It feels odd, like a faded memory that you're not sure is really yours or that you've heard it repeated enough to convince yourself that you experienced it first hand. I see pictures of myself but my brain doesn't compute. Has it only been 5 days? I think I'm going to have to consider Ciki's idea about running the 11km Adidas King Of The Road race on 2nd August! My knee is finally feeling better so I'm going to try and run this Sunday.
Meanwhile, to cheer myself up I've been eating colourful food to make me feel happy and virtuous. Bought some ciabatta from Artisanas and placed whole heads of garlic and bell peppers in the oven. Grilled some aubergine slices on the non-stick griddle pan. Twenty minutes later, aromatic and caramelised goodness ready to be layered on my barely toasted ciabatta. I did want to add some cheese but the block I had in the fridge smelt very suspicious. The sandwich would not be complete without some green pesto and fresh organic tomatoes. What a deeply satisfying vegetarian sandwich! I love the sweet smokey taste of the roasted garlic spread and salty sharp pesto against the sweet peppers. Mmmm, I could eat this everyday!
