At some point I plan to do a detailed post about the market, vendors and all of the good stuff (like Pretzel Croissants!), but today I just wanted to share my haul from last weekend....check it out:
I liked this photo so much I made the new blog background (in case you didn't notice). But seriously, all of this for $39. I don't know if that seems like a lot, but it would have been way more if I tried to buy it in the grocery store, especially since a lot of this stuff is organic. Plus, the farmer's market goods always last way longer since they are so fresh. All together I got:
- 30 eggs ($6!)
- 1lb mixed zesty salad greens (organic)
- 2 heads of lettuce (organic)
- 3 red onions (organic)
- 1 bunch purple carrots (so good and organic)
- 6 plum tomatoes (organic)
- 1 bunch golden beets (organic)
- 2 leeks (organic)
- 4 peaches (organic)
- 4 nectarines (organic)
- 4 pluots (local)
- 4 plums (local)
- 3 green bell peppers (local)
- 2 cucumbers (local)
Now, onto training......
So last week I mentioned that I was going to train for this:
BUT....after going to register I've changed my mind. First off, the super sprint is $100! That is probably not a lot considering the course area, ocean swim and popularity of the race, but I'm used to my local $65 races. So, considering how our calendar looks that weekend, driving to Monterey at 6PM, racing for an hour the next morning and turning around to go home right after the race just doesn't seem worth it.
Instead I'm looking at doing TBF Racing's Clif Bar Team Challenge
I've been wanting to do this for a long time but we usually have a conflict. This year we are waiting to see if it will conflict with my cousin's wedding, but hopefully it won't. If not, I'll be racing with IronMom (my mom) and The Cyclist. We should be able to do some damage!
Otherwise this week - I had hoped to do a run or, wishfully, a run and a ride last weekend; I did neither. Spending time with The Cyclist, The Munchkin and lots of other good friends took prevalence over exercise, and that is fine. This week I have managed to ride my bike everyday again (woot-woot!). I rode an extra 15 miles on Monday. On Tuesday I attempted to run with Otis (The Dog), but it was hard and hot....I'm going to be glad I made the attempt and leave it at that. On Wednesday I swam again. So overall, doing good! It feels good to be exercising regularly and I don't feel bad about all the cookies I've been making with my new Kitchen Aid mixer (I love that thing!). I swear, 90% of why I exercise is food.
Coming soon I will review a great fish recipe and tell you all about Pizza Night!
