I never thought it was possible but I am now enjoying running a little later in the day. I guess afternoon is an exaggeration but 11 a.m. feels really good to get out and back in the old days my body didn’t know how to run past 8 a.m.
I took Brooke out for a few miles and brought her back to Billy and then I finished off my 12 miler with an overall 7:49 pace. I am happy about that because it felt pretty comfortable the whole time and I am basing it all on the fact that I took a rest day on Friday.
Rest days = My run feels amazing the next day and I get injured less often. I guess that just means i need more mornings where I stay in pajamas and eat breakfast burritos while watching tv. If you make me.
I was going to wear my compression socks but then I remembered that I had worn them all week + I haven’t done laundry + my calves sweat a lot = that would just be wrong to wear them again. I need a washer and dryer or more compression socks or my mom to live closer.
I got home and ate a turkey sandwich and then it was off to Trader Joe’s (please note that I haven’t been there for 3.6 weeks, that isn’t okay) to get some pizza dough but when I walked past these I was forced to get them. They are really good and not quite as vinegary as other Salt and Vinegar chips.
I am into this thing lately where if I have the choice I will ALWAYS choose bbq chicken (with enough chicken to cover the entire thing) pizza. Round one:
Another place that I haven’t been in 3.6 weeks:
Our friend invited us over to play games and eat cookies. I really can’t think of a better way to spend your Saturday night.
I brought the cookies that got me through my pregnancy when I didn’t like chocolate (the hardest part about my pregnancy) but needed cookies in my life. I think I ate one a day for the entire 40 weeks. Recipe HERE.
It may look like a 5 year old drew these pictures but I was actually the artist. I am proud of my sailboat with the parasailing guy behind.
Brooke fell asleep while we were playing and woke up with this awesome new hair style.
What was your long run this weekend? How did it feel?
Any good new items that you have tried from Trader Joe’s? Any other Salt and Vinegar chips fan?
What time is your absolute favorite time to get out for a run? Has it changed over the years?
If you could have any cookie right this second, what kind of cookie would you have?
