Summer Running Streak, Days #62, #63, #64

Man, got really behind on updating the blog! Not too much exciting, anyway, running wise.

Ran just under two miles on day #62, recovering from Blessing. #63 had a run of about four miles, and #64 (tonight) went out late for another mile. Feeling OK all around, but definitely in need of more rest.

Started a sourdough starter last week which has come along nicely. Milled the flour myself from wheat berries, and used a pineapple/flour method to bring the ph down to activate the wild yeasts. It was really active, and I've been doing the daily feedings with rye flour, so I'm looking forward to a nice couple of sourdough boules in the next couple of weeks.

Also! Had a fairly successful pineapple upside down cake this week. Added some crushed pineapple and pineapple juice to the batter, and it was really quite good. Still need to work on the technique of actually flipping it, which is more challenging than one would thing given the weight of a cast iron skillet.
