After having made some yummy buffalo chicken dip over the weekend, I have been craving spicy things like crazy. If you know anything about me, that’s very unusual. I used to complain that barbeque chips were too spicy.
Today was the first night that I actually had time to make myself something yummy to eat, though, so I finally busted out the hot sauce and got down to business. I have also been in the mood for tacos lately. So I kind of combined the two.
First, I cooked some chicken on the stove and added a little salt and pepper. After that, I added the chicken to another pan with some sliced green bell pepper and a little bit of Red Hot sauce. After a few minutes of simmering and cooking, my belly was grumbling.
Put it all on a wrap, add a little cheddar and some lettuce, and it was ready for me to nom.
Not just one, but two of these bad boys were consumed in about 2 minutes tops.
I was very pleased with my simple creation .
What I am not pleased about, though, is the pain that is still lingering in my shins.
I posed this question and got a lot of great responses. Most of them said to lay off running for a while. It kind of bums me out because I really want to be able to finish this race. Do you think I will still be ok to complete the marathon even with taking a few weeks off?
I feel like I get injured seriously more than any person ever should. I promise I am not a hypochondriac! I really hurt a lot! Anyone want to give me their legs (and right shoulder while I am at it in case I am stuck with a life full of just swimming…)?
Have you ever taken the focus off of training in order to recover from injury?
Are you a fan of spicy food? If so, what are your favorite spicy recipes?
