Well, I have some sad news. Billy has the flu and it breaks my heart to see him sick. He doesn’t know how to complain about anything (I do enough for the both of us) and so he just kind of hung out on the couch yesterday.
I was not going to go out in the dark without him because I am a wuss and so I took it to the treadmill.
I didn’t have a mileage that I wanted to do but I turned on the Bachelor from Monday night and it turns out I can run 10 miles in one episode.
I am so glad that my calorie counter on the treadmill is accurate;) 155 calories per mile sounds about right…..I am totally kidding.
For some reason doing ten miles on a treadmill seems normal to me but then when I look at how the screen says 41 LAPS (I did 40 laps and then it started on the 41st lap), I get really weirded out and think that doing 40 laps around the track is just weird, who does that?
Turns out we were out of the main ingredient for the dinner that I was craving so badly, just a little thing called cheese. I am too lazy to go to the store when I don’t absolutely have to which is logical because running for an hour and twenty-five minutes sounds a whole lot better than trekking to the store in the freezing cold.
Instead I had delicious parmesan chicken leftovers from last night, it looked the exact same as the photo last night but just on a different paper plate and with a side of a baked potato. Hey, it sounded good….that can’t be the weirdest combo of foods you have heard of/seen in blog land.
I will include the h̶i̶g̶h̶l̶i̶g̶h̶t̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶d̶a̶y̶ picture of my post dinner treats: a pear (going through these like crazy, just like last year) and Trader Joe’s peanut butter cups.
Post-run didn’t even think about showering face.

When was the last time you were sick? What were you sick with? Is the flu going around your family?
When you run on the treadmill (or outside) do you ever stop at anything besides right on the mile? (ie 7.4, 6.7, 8.9)
-I think I am a weirdo and have to finish right on the mile (or .01 after). Once in a blue moon I will stop at the half mile but I have a weird thing of stopping at the even mile.
What weird combos of food have you eaten before?
-A week or two ago I had leftover california sushi rolls and a bowl of lucky charms for dinner.
The longest you have ever run at a track?
-Speed work session that totaled 7 miles and I was very dizzy afterwards.
