Wednesday, and the weekend is not far away. We have not been up to to much the past few days. On Monday we made a nice ramen. It is very simple and very quick even if you do the noodles yourself, which we always do. The broth is easily prepared and it only needs to cook for 10 minutes. This time we cooked the broth separately and poured it over the vegetables and noodles. We used spinach, broccoli and spring onion in this ramen, but it is so easy to vary what vegetables you have. Spinach and broccoli are both very good for you so we tend to eat them in our ramen most times.
Otherwise it is mostly work and the days go by so fast. As I have written about before, my leg has been hurting since Christmas and I have not been able to run since. On Friday I finally went to the physio to see what the problem was. I was given some exercises that I need to do for two weeks in order to strengthen the muscles in my leg.
My hope and aim is that I will be ok to run a race on March 22nd. It is a pre-race for the Gothenburg Half Marathon that I will be running in May. It is basically a 10 km race that can give you a better start group. If you have never run the half marathon before you automatically end up in the slowest pace groups. So me and my sister (who I will run the half marathon with) will do that race together. Jason and Tommy (my sister’s boyfriend) are also running it.
Jason has been very good at keeping up his training. Yesterday he did a session on the turbo trainer and today he went home a little earlier from work to do 30 km outside before it got dark. It was a very gentle ride and he said he loved the fresh air he got. Jason is also a blood donor and today he gave blood again, hence the iron-rich vegetables in our ramen on Monday. I have to start as well, but I am really afraid of needles!
Luckily the weather in Sweden is slowly changing into spring! Today was the first day it really felt like the spring might come soon. There is something in the air and it has been plus degrees for more than a week now. It is very early for Sweden to get spring this time of the year and according to the news it is almost a month early in the south of Sweden (the north of Sweden still has winter).
Jason’s dad Colin is coming this week for a visit and hopefully the weather will allow some cycling 🙂
We hope you have a great week and you’ll be hearing from us at the weekend if not sooner 😉
