4 weekend runs in a month… time to step it up. (And chili.)

Hello hello! (hola!) So I’ve been slowly and carefully running the past four weeks – 10, 15, 20, and about 25 minutes – and my shin hasn’t gotten worse or hurt. I think I’m going to bump it up to twice a week, but keep it around 20-25 minutes for another month or so. Progress is slow, but I’d rather take it slow and steady than ramp up too quickly like I did in September and find myself Not Actually Better.

I’m still climbing and, now that I have time this semester, I’m back to lifting. Current squat PR is 175, deadlift 225, so I’m working on that.

And I also made perfect vegan chili. Excellent for long, lazy, cold winter days.


Rough recipe:
1C quinoa
some bulgur wheat
3 cans diced tomatoes
4 zucchini/yellow squash
2 bell peppers
1-2C frozen corn
an onion
garlic to taste
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 thing of tempeh
seasonings: salt, pepper, cumin, crushed red pepper, chili powder, some oregano

put it in a pot and stir until hot. consume.

peace love and safe running! The roads around here are literally sheets of ice. Step carefully.
