Salmon with Olives & Capers.

Since last fall was… sort of a bust on the running front (apologies, again, Walsh!), His Lordship and I decided to make this training season count: tackling workouts, less booze (sigh), and healthy eating (less cheese and fried things, sigh).

“We need to eat more fish!,” exclaimed His Lordship.

So we do. Probably once a week.

I don’t know if this has any correlation with my recent tempo workouts, but if it does, I’ll be upping my intake of marine animals.

Salmon? Or perhaps the cold weather? You be the judge.
