Doggies, Green Tomatoes, and My Return to Running!

Last night Clyde had a doggie playdate with a certain semi-famous dog- James Caitlin and I had been emailing each other since before she moved to Charlotte about our doxies and how it would be fun to get them together.  We finally coordinated schedules and made it happen last night! 
We met up at a park to take the dogs for a walk and chat...

We had a great time chatting and watching the dogs play.  The leashes had to be untangled quite a few times, but we rolled with it.  James was very tolerant of Clyde's massive amounts of puppy energy. 
Once home, I hopped on Twitter and for the umteenth time today saw strings of conversation about running.  I had been thinking I might try running this week and see how it went, and last night I decided to go for it.

(yes, horrible picture...)  Notice my giant gash from Saturday's fall when rescueing Clyde...
The run was great!  The left knee/leg didn't bother me at all.  It was more the soreness on my wound on the right leg if anything.  I loved being back out there though!
I finally made a late dinner after the run.
My buddy Gibson had given me some green tomatoes. 

Fried Green Tomatoes anyone?

I used two, which ended up being more than I could eat by myself.  This was my first time making them though, so i wasn't sure how it would go.  I used this basic recipe.

The seeds you see are Flax seeds, which I added to my breadcrumbs.

Finished product over plain baby spinach.  It was yummy!  I would like to do a fried green tomato BLT sometime.  I had one in Beaufort, SC that I still dream about...

I went to a hot yoga class with Jen this morning and also saw the other Jen there.  This class was a little different than yoga I've been to.  It was even HOTTER than the others at our studio, and the teacher played upbeat music instead of the usual "Zen" type.  Think Coldplay, Kesha, Pearl Jam, etc...  I liked the music, it was cool.  I again melted into a pool of sweat and at one point felt a little weak and shaky, but I got through it and it was a good workout. 

I am now packing and getting ready to leave for Hilton Head for the weekend!  I can't wait to see my brother, sister-in-law, and parents!  This will be Clyde's second trip to HHI, and first time meeting his Aunt and Uncle.  See ya for the recap!

I LOVE fried green tomatoes! I need to try to make some at home.

I am going to have to suck it up and go to hot vinyasa one day soon. I have been such a chicken!
