Ok, so yesterday’s run got my legs a-shakin’ and now they are sore as all hell. I am going to have to veto a run today and opt for an interval workout at the gym later on. BUT FIRST,¬†I must finish cooking this meal to bring over to friends that just had a baby! This is my first time making lasagna from scratch by myself, so I am hoping it turns out all right! eek.

Here it is beforehand:

I’ll back back later with a workout recap and other goodies…
