Perfect pizza

I think I made my favorite pizza last night. I wanted bread and melty cheese so pizza seemed like a good plan. I like making my own pizza, even more than ordering it. Making it yourself is the only way to be sure it's just the way you like it. Also, I really love a thin crispy crust, I hate deep dish greasy crust (shocking, I know).

Last night I decided to put one of my favorite combos on it. Goat cheese and red pepper. Let me tell you, it was amazing! My new favorite pizza toppings. I also used some mozzarella, you can't have too much cheese. Sadly I was in a hurry and didn't have time to mess with making crust so I bought one pre made. It was still good. Nice and crispy. I sautéed the red pepper in olive oil with some garlic, salt and pepper before putting it on the pizza.

I was planning to run today and decided that keeping it slow would be best for my complaining body. I had a few things to do around the house this morning before I could go to the gym, and had to be in Ohio at 2 so I was only able to squeeze 4 miles in. A short, slow run is still better than no run. I kept it really slow, like slower than my long run pace slow. It was just a tiny bit faster than 10 min/mile. I always feel weird about telling you my paces. Partly because I'm not speedy, but also because I don't want anyone else to feel slow and inadequate if I just happen to be faster than they are. It's really not good to compare yourself to others. I try not to. For me this run was slow, if that wouldn't be slow for you that's just fine too. All that matters is that you're doing it. There are a lot of benefits of easy runs, I just need to remember this. I'm going to work on slowing it down until I'm feeling less sore and achy.

  1. I've slowed all my runs down this week, and as a result my long run yesterday, was at a faster pace than my normal long runs. Granted it was on a treadmill, so I can control my pace, something I'm going to have to work on if I ever am able to run outside again. However, I did not slow them down to the pace "SmartCoach" recommended, or I think I would go nuts.
