I went to bed on Wednesday night thinking that I was going to switch my schedule and get up early and go for my 22 miler. When I woke up I looked out the window and we had some more new snow. Running in the dark on that didn’t sound like a great idea and I don’t have Andrew’s treadmill endurance right now so I went for 7 miles @ 8:50 pace instead. We aren’t supposed to get any new snow today so 22 miles here I come.
What made the treadmill run pretty fabulous= a new episode of This Is Us. The latest episode made me cry so if you are planning on watching it, bring some tissues. After I got off, Andrew jumped on for his second long run of 10 miles. <— He did 31 miles in two days on the treadmill.
Off to school and even our car was sliding around on the roads.
Andrew brought home steak salads from 180 tacos for lunch.
And Skye resembled this baby polar bear for most of the day…
She was quite attached to me.
Millions of toys around but she just wanted me to be her jungle gym.
Outside of the normal life stuff yesterday I had one goal and that was to make the bread that I drooled over when I saw it on IG. A Bountiful Kitchen is one of my favorite recipe blogs and her Classic White Bread Recipe is amazing. We polished off the loaf in about 10 minutes.
We bought Skye a new carseat and she felt pretty excited about the ordeal… she is growing up fast.
And my good news that is kind of silly… Andrew found out last night that he won’t be working on my birthday which means that operation ‘run the years I am turning in miles’ can happen on my actual birthday. I made the official route last night and at mile 10 there will be Kneader’s French Toast and mile 20 glazed donuts (and huma gels along the way too)… feel free to come join me. He will also be doing day shifts for his capstone which will make it easier with his ultra training and seeing us:).
Time for a few Friday Favorites (affiliate links included)!
*I opened my birthday present almost a month early;). Andrew gave them to me early so that I could get some good use out of them this winter. I’ve wanted these wedge boots (quarry) for a long time and they are now helping me get through this winter;).
*Megan told me that the soft-serve at JCW’s is incredible and she is very correct. Ever since Costco stopped selling their soft-serve we’ve been trying to find something else we love as much and now we have found it.
*Megan also told me about this book and I read it so fast because I needed ANSWERS. It was creepy and a great thriller.
*This dog accidentally ran a half-marathon and did it in 1:32:56. That is pretty impressive. I think Beretta really wants to try now to see if she can beat Ludivine’s time.
What are your weekend plans?
If you have a dog… if they were let loose to run as far as they wanted, how far do you think they would go?
-I bet Beretta could run a half-marathon right now and maybe even up to 20 miles.
Do you ever make bread? Have a good recipe?
