later in the morning the rain stopped, and by 11:30am i was out the door for my tuesday run. i wore a pair of old running shoes because i didn't get my regular shoes dirty. it was actually nice running after it'd rained, the weather was cooler, the only danger were puddles, and i made sure to watch out from getting splashed by passing cars. i felt i had a lot of stamina today, and running seemed effortless, though it still made me tired and i wanted to stop at times.
i didn't get home until 12:30pm. i took off my sweat soaked running clothes and threw it along with a load of dirty laundry into the washer while i took a shower. instead of an omelette - i was too lazy to make one - i just had a bowl of instant tonkotsu ramen for lunch. i ate while rewatching season 1 of fargo.
weather was calm in the afternoon, although still cloudy. another batch of rain was expected in the evening, but the forecast showed it will dissipate before reaching the coastline. i thought about riding to belmont to do some lawn work, but figured it wasn't work the risk if it did rain again. instead in the late afternoon i went to market basket for some groceries, decided to make greek-style chicken pita pockets for dinner. there was a sale on split chicken breast but these were large whole pieces including the bone. instead i got some italian sausages, figured they'd be easier to cook.
back at home i cut up some slices of baguette and ate them with a wedge of brie cheese i bought last week. in the early evening i closed the blinds and fell asleep on the coach after surfing the web on my laptop. i woke up around 8:30pm, feeling even more tired, and slick with sweat from the humidity. i felt so fatigued i thought maybe i finally contracted covid, and briefly thought about taking another home test.
i stumbled into the kitchen to make dinner around 9pm. after slicing the sausages in half, i cooked them in the smokeless foreman grill (7-8 minutes). while that was happening, i prepared the vegetable ingredients: red onion, cucumber, olives. after the sausages finished cooking, i cut up two into smaller pieces and stuffed them into my pita bread along with romaine lettuce, tzatziki sauce, feta cheese, and the remaining vegetable ingredients. i overstuffed my pita which is a problem i have with any kind of wrap foods. the italian sausages were good, but didn't seem to fit with the pita. if i had to do it again, i'd buy a package of chicken sausages instead. i washed everything down with a 12 fl oz. bottle of strawberry watermelon polar seltzer. i felt energized afterwards.
