Morning. I think we’re getting a little side effect of Sandy. Everyone else good?
The day kept me busy. I tried to stuff as much charting into my “spare” time but didn’t end up making that much damage. I’d type out that date and time and my next patient would arrive. What do you do?
Nothing too special or extraordinary seemed to happen yesterday. It seemed quite simple compared to my Friday’s need for 2 interpreters. I was on the a cordless phone with a Bosnian interpreter and also had a in-person Spanish interpreter. Everyone spoke English yesterday.
I was given some house cleaning to do at cardiac rehab. Someone found dietitian materials that I’ve never even seen before and was asked to go through it all. Fun!
It’s getting cold and I am initially less excited about running after work (or any time for that matter). I need to pick up a pair of running gloves for this weather! I did put on my here-are-my-thigh running pants though.
I planned a 7X400 interval run. This run always gets me good! I have a strong love-hate relationship with it. The strong wind coming from the north was a bear.
I ran for 29:06 minutes for 3.52 miles averaging 8’15″. My pace ranged from6’49″ to 9’50″. Perfect!
The young Wildcat runners were out running at this time. I saw one girl in the very back of the pack and none of the leaders near her. I was doing my cool-down walk and asked the young 9 year-old if I could run with her. It was getting dark and I figured it would be nice for her to have someone pushing her along. We chatted a little. She was really sweet!
I came home and began on dinner quickly. Soup can be really quick to throw together or takes a while to simmer. I had a long-simmering soup planned. I found a red lentil soup recipe in the 2012 Food and Wine cookbook. It called for simple and vegan only ingredients.
Meanwhile Aaron took care of the grilled cheese aspect.
Go big or go home, I guess.
The soup finally warmed me up after the chilling run. I kind of like the chilled-to-the-bone feeling once you start warming up!
The rest of the night was spent under a blanket. My body need warmth and rest. I always look forward to taking it easy at the end of the night.
