Brioche – Sweet Bread

Yes, I went running last night and I figured out that the loop I’m running (well, the last 1/2 mile I’m still walking. . .) is 1.5 miles (which doesn’t seem like much but if I run it twice, that’s almost the 5k distance!). It seems like it’s getting harder and not easier, which is a bit depressing (although my heart rate is staying lower which is a good sign that something is changing). But I’ll run again tonight and tomorrow night. Maybe it will start getting easier eventually.

Sorry for all of the recipes lately (and I have a few more left to share this week too!) – I’ve just been on a cooking spree and I love to share what I’m learning!

I have a weird fascination with Brioche – it’s just good for so many things, sandwiches, bread pudding, sweet panzenella, french toast . . . a snack with bread, butter and jam. . . delicious! It’s slightly sweet and dense and this recipe was just about perfect. It’s a different method of kneading dough, if you want to try this recipe make sure to watch the video too. . .

    for sure, as you keep on running it gets easier. i was running miles and miles and then i got injured and couldn’t run for months so i lost all my endurance and had to start again from ground zero when i could run again…i could run for like 5 minutes and that was it! but then slowly, slowly i built my endurance back up. you’ll get there! 🙂

    Thanks for the encouragement – I’ve never been athletic in the slightest so I need all that I can get! 🙂

    yes, keep plugging away! but if your body is telling you no, don’t feel bad about listening to it and sitting a night out. sometimes i feel most refreshed after i’ve taken a day or two off – your body does so much rebuilding during that time away it makes a huge difference the next time you run.

    i’m so glad you’re sticking to it – maybe i’ll bring you some of my runner’s world magazines, there are stories (and recipes!) in there that will motivate the heck out of you.

    Yeah, I didn’t run last night like I had planned but I think it’s good – I feel pretty good today so I’m thinking I’ll run after work.

    I’d love to see some of your runner’s world magazines – I always need more motivation (and recipes)!
