Yesterday was another steady run, short 4 miler to accompany the insanity upper body workout. I’m excited to have a longer run today because running is truly what I love, the rest is just there to make me a better runner. Today I won’t have to cut the run short to support a strength workout so yay. Side note: I won’t be cutting the workouts short on strength days in the coming weeks, I just wanted to ease into the Insanity program and not overdo it so I’ll be increasing the length of my workout day runs until I am back to normal running schedule. But they will stay easy/recovery runs or steady state runs rather than tempo or interval days, those will be in between 🙂 But somewhere between 7-9 today, I’m just going to head out on a new loop and however long it is, great.
Last night I made pie for dinner! We had this game mix from an organic farm: venison, quail, and partridge that I decided sounded great in the form of game pie.
Making the sauce/gravy:
I just threw in dark beer, stock, garlic, onions, carrots, thyme, butter, and lemon. It tasted exactly as I imagined it would, so I was happy.
It’s square and misshapen. I suck at doing the crust.
My piece 🙂 It was super delicious. Apparently Joe thought so too because he ate the entire rest of the pie. I have zero leftovers. Guess I have to rethink tonight’s dinner plans…
Is recovery beer a thing? I’m declaring it so. I bought Joe a bunch of award winning beers from around the world for Christmas and I poached one because it just sounded like the perfect accompaniment to pie. I was right 😉 I was also a tiny bit tipsy because apparently increased running and drinking one drink a month does not lead to any kind of tolerance level. College me would laugh at this spectacle. Grown-up me kind of enjoys it. Shh.
Do you enjoy a good beer? More of a wine person? Don’t drink at all?
Favorite kind of dinner pie! Or any pie?
