I think I am having a mid-January crisis. I feel like a plastic bag in the middle of the ocean. I am kind of in between training plans right now just trying to keep up a certain level of fitness in swim/bike/run.
WHOA HOLD THE PHONE. I realized as I typed that out how ridiculous it sounded since I have a marathon on Sunday and all. When did training for a marathon become "keeping up a certain level of fitness"? Clearly I have lost my mind. Perhaps I am not so much adrift as just plain crazy.
Seriously though, these past couple of weeks I kind of feel like I am just going through the motions. I am surrounded by people smack dab in the middle of half iron (or even iron) training plans and here I sit feeling like I am doing nothing in comparison. Remind me of this feeling six months from now when I am whining about being too busy. I think I just need to get back on a solid training schedule. Somebody throw me a rope and pull me back into reality!
In other news ...
You MUST try this recipe! (insert picture of said recipe). Sorry, I failed at photographing it because I really didn't think it would be THAT good just looking at the ingredients. I got the recipe from this recipe service I have been using and will tell you about some other time.
CR doesn't like cooked tomatoes or onions AT ALL and said it tasted like something you would get in a restaurant. At the time, I assumed he meant something other than Captain D's but you can judge for yourself. Seriously good. That is all.
Roasted Tilapia, Tomatoes and Onions (serves 2 -3)
4 roma tomatoes, halved and sliced
1 onion, quartered and sliced
2 t orange zest
1 bag of frozen tilapia (thawed, about 4 small pieces)
2 t olive oil
salt to taste (maybe 1/2 t)
1 t thyme
Preheat oven to 400. Combine tomatoes, onions, orange zest, oil, thyme and salt in baking dish. Roast stirring occasionally until the onions are golden ~ 30 minutes. Remove from oven and increase temp to 450. Push the vegetables aside and add fish (season w/ salt and pepper). Spoon the vegetables over the fish and bake 10-12 minutes or until fish is done.
I served mine with brown rice and steamed broccoli. Enjoy!
