My mom knows that the perfect present for me is either large quantities of candy, running clothes or a gift card to one of my favorite restaurants. I used my Subway gift card from my coolest mom to get this 12 inch ham sandwich and took it over to my friend’s house to eat lunch with them.
After lunch we raided my friend’s snack/treat/candy cabinet (glad I am not the only one with one of those) and these butter toffee peanuts were quite addicting. Please note that we also had our favorite candy corn and peanut combo, that stuff will NEVER get old to me. I don’t know how I went (and was happy) 26 years without them.
After Brooke and I got back from lunch Brooke fell asleep on my lap on my bed and so I was forced to sit there for an hour and a half taking pictures of us and stalking Facebook and blogs on my phone. I could not bear to wake the sleeping beauty by moving her so I had to stay in bed. I love that I can now blame my love for staying in bed all day on my daughter.
Billy went out for a run and decided to randomly run 13.1 miles?!? When he got home he made a protein shake and grabbed ice to ice his feet and came and hung out with us. One of my favorite things to do is to grill people on every detail of their run. I love hearing about every little second, the fuel, their effort level, their route and everything else I can think about. I only like this ritual if I am not injured… when I am injured I do not want to hear any of the details.
Somehow I was tired after hanging out in bed for a while so we decided to just put a frozen lasagna in the oven for dinner. It is from Omaha Steaks and it tasted like it was homemade. We both loved it.
I figured that I had enough veggies in my lunch and I hear it is possible to overdose on them so we stuck to good old lasagna and garlic bread.
Does it make us lame that we were in bed by 9:45? At least we got caught up on Modern Family.
What is your run going to be this morning?
-I am thinking 8 or 9 because I have to get back in time for a breakfast and there is no way I am going to run in the dark!
How often do you ice?
-Never ever. During marathon training I do an ice bath when I run anything more than 15 miles but it has been a long time since I have done that.
Do you have any restaurant gift cards right now? Where to?
