Workout – long run, took it to the treadmill because this is what the scary outdoors looks like –
I don’t do cold. I most definitely don’t do cold and snow. 13.1 treadmill miles, 1-2% incline. 92 min. The plan was to run 14 – but I had to be home by 9am. I figured I would make it a half marathon and maybe get the other .9 in later today. right. 😉
It is official. I do have the best husband in the world. I did marry the right person. 6:15 this morning, first words out of his mouth when we both got up – it just started snowing, go to the gym now and get your 14 miles in!! NOW!!! – be still my heart, I love this man. there are no othe words I want to hear at that hour.
I scootched my hiney out the door and got my butt to the gym. didn’t even think twice about how I was about to run 14 miles on an empty stomach and that might not be a great idea. hubs texted me about 1/2 an hour into my run to see if I could be home by 9 so he could out and plow snow. no problemo. I’m the happiest girl in the world right now running on the treadmill. I picked up my pace, but knew I wasn’t going to make 14 miles. I’m usually all about round numbers, but I also like 13.1 because it’s a half marathon. so I stopped at 13.1. job done. on with the day.
Post run. happy endorphins flowing.
had this waiting for me in my car. I’ve never had these, but they were on sale. pretty good for an on the go, post run snack. I like to stuff my face immediately after I run. especially a long run. and then again about 30 minutes later. and every hour thereafter. works for me.
Lots happened in the 2 hours I was gone…
Luke ate half a bag of fiber one cereal – about 250% his daily value of fiber. this should be interesting.
fiber child also broke my camera. looking on the bright side, it didn’t take the most quality of pictures ( it was NOT my horrible photography skills that made every picture blurry), so now I have to buy a new one.
I made pumpkin pancakes when I got home. I found them on THIS BLOG– the kidlings seemed to like them. I thought they were delightful. I also thought standing at the stove for an hour sounded delightful, too because I doubled the recipe. lotsa batter. not gonna do that again.
I don’t know what it is about snowy days that make me want to bake every type of delicious cookie and brownie that comes to mind. was hoping the pumpkin pancakes would satisfy my need to create. they didn’t. too bad I don’t have any ingredients for anything except a 2/3 gone back of semi-sweet chocolate chips. that’s not gonna get me very far. might have to take a trip to the store. in the snow. desperate times call for desperate measures. I’ll let you know if I come up with anything good. don’t hold your breath.
We have a birthday party to go to this afternoon and hopefully a nice quiet night of foam rolling and maybe some icing. One of my favorite things is spontaneous get togethers with friends that force me out of making dinner. such a thing happened last night. beautiful. our neighbors came over and we ordered Thai food. I’m hoping for such a thing to happen again tonight. if not – pumpkin pancakes for dinner. I have about 40 of them.
