It Was Too Spicy Tonight

Today’s Run

5.35 miles, 50:55, 9:31 pace

My pulled leg muscle is still bothering me, so I can’t push to be faster if I wanted to.  It’s frustrating, but I’m just glad I’m still able to run even if it hurts.  I WILL accomplish this marathon!


You know how the other night Mat made blackened mahi mahi?  Well he made it again tonight since we had leftover mango salsa and salad dressing.

Except tonight something happened.  It was WAY too spicy.

We think what happened was the pan didn’t get hot enough and therefore didn’t cook off some of the spice like last time.  It’s meant to be a spicy dish, but tonight?  Holy cow was it hot.  Mat enjoys super spicy stuff and it was even too hot for him.  You can only imagine how I felt!  I forced it down anyway though because fish is good for you and because I completely forgot that I could have eaten leftover chicken if I wanted to.  Plus fish is expensive and I hate wasting food.


It doesn’t look that spicy here.  So sad.



I was gulping water and milk like nobody’s business.

Sadly, I couldn’t finish my rice because my mouth was on fire from the fish.  But there’s leftover rice so yay!

Now I’m going to eat frozen thin mints.  My mouth is better but I still have the excuse, right?
