Running…Part Two

14 Mar

So I told you last week JC and I have started doing some running and we have continued to run about every other day. We’ve run a few times at Cranes Roost Lake at Uptown Altamonte and once at Lake Eola in downtown Orlando.

The weather in Orlando has been cold recently. REALLY cold! So most of our runs have been in sub 60 degree (or below) weather but last night we decided to run in spite of the weather. Cold, windy rain.

Because of the weather (and I4 traffic) we decided to run near the Orange County Convention Center (where I work) on Universal Boulevard. The rain was pretty bad at times and since it had been raining for two days there were some big puddles to fight.

We parked at the brand new Publix and ran down to Pointe Orlando and back. It would have been a great path if the sidewalk wasn’t missing in the middle (lame). We started by doing our alternating jogging/walking. This time doing 4 minutes of jogging and 3 minutes of walking, but on the way back we were soaked and ended up doing a lot more walking.

Our shoes were just soaked and got really heavy so we couldn’t really put as much jogging in as we would have liked to. The last time we went out we jogged a total of 21 minutes around Cranes Roost!

I still have some soreness and pain the day after our runs but overall I am feeling MUCH better about this whole running thing. Every time we run I feel like I can go a little further.

I don’t have anything to announce at this point, but we are definitely talking about doing some actual organized runs here later this year!

Cheese-Stuffed Meatloaves and Two Sides

This is a Publix Apron’s Simple Meal that my mom gave me and it looked so good that after getting home from Disney I decided to run to Publix Sabor and pick up what I needed. Being that this was a Publix Apron’s Simple Meal you can go HERE and see the whole recipe online and print it for yourself. My normal cooking step by step will continue below, but I know this printable recipe will make it easier on you if you want to (and you should!) make it for yourself.

The recipe I got came on a card, with holes punched to go into a recipe book which included everything you would need on one side, including a shopping list and a cooking sequence. The other side had the actual recipes for each of the three dishes I was about to prepare. So I made it all! I made Cheese-Stuffed Meatloaves, Parsley Potatoes and Chuck Wagon Corn.

For those of you who live in the South East, you have probably visited or seen a Publix grocery store. You probably haven’t visited one like mine though. Continue reading
