Say hello to my little friend!

This evening I made the “best” tagliatelle with ragu, if I could bring some to Ottawa I would: butter, 1 onion, 1 celery stick, 1 carrot, pancetta, beef, 2 springs fresh oregano, nutmeg, red wine, milk, tomatoes, tagliatelle and parmesan. What more could one want? If I ever run out of things to count, perhaps I’ll open my own restaurant.

After yesterday’s workout, I was curious how my legs would respond. Bruce had suggested an easy 30’-45’ and with nothing left to gain and everything to lose, I compromised on this side of easy.

The legs did me proud.

That said I didn’t push the pace, but like the creature of habit I am, traced my well worn path around BHP enjoying the scenery. While shopping for dinner, I realized my calves were tight and so while relaxing this evening pulled out “the stick” (for the first time in months) and gave them a gentle workout.
