Rest Day & Chimichangas

Today is one of my many rest days coming up. This is just my usual rest day. I have learned a lot throughout this training time. I've learned to listen to my body and do what it says (most of the time) and this is huge for me. I like learning about myself. I also know that I am capable of more than I ever thought. No matter how "slow" or "fast" I am next weekend, I will be proud of myself and am happy with the huge progress I have made over this time. After the race I will continue to train...for my next 1/2 marathon. I just have the decide which one I want to do (I'm thinking of doing one that has an expo, so I can get that experience).

Last night, I made Oven Fried Chimichangas. They were so good! Here's the mixture that went inside.

I used whole wheat tortillas and buttered them up!

Out of the oven once I got out of the shower. Perfect timing!

They look so professional (jk)!! You should try them. They have the perfect little crisp to them. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

What are you proud of, from your training? I'm also proud that I have dropped a few pounds, I've became more toned, my legs look so much better and I know how to control my breathing.

  1. These look really good! I love Mexican food.

    I think it's great that you've learned to listen to your body. It's often something we overlook during training, though it's just as important as the training itself.
