I miss the weekend already. And it’s Tuesday. But it feels like Monday. So I’m completely out of whack. Because I’m often confused easily. I tell my mom I got her ditzy gene. She hates when I say that.
I did enjoy my Monday off (which felt like Sunday, so again I was all thrown off). I crawled out of bed at 8:00 and slowly got ready for my run. Too slowly. I was in the middle of my first loop on the trail and all the sudden the sky darkened. What a waste of good sunscreen, I thought. Then I started to wonder how long it would be until the rain started. Maybe I’d get in the whole four miles.
Nope. By the time I saw the second or third bolt of lightning in the distance, I decided to finish up my 2.5 miles and then do the last 1.5 on the treadmill. My average pace was 8:28. This was faster than what I have been doing, but I’m sure it had something to do with the fact that I ran the last mile in a downpour. The sky just opened and let me have it. Like I said, I got the four miles done thanks to the treadmill. I got stares from another girl in the gym. She was probably wondering why I was pounding it out on the treadmill looking like a wet dog. I didn’t care enough to explain what happened and that I found no reason to go home and change just to go get another set of clothes all sweaty. That’s just how I think. Sure, I risked some serious chaffing- but no worries, didn’t happen.
Since I was too full to enjoy the BBQ my guys grilled up the day before, I felt left out. So I did some fake BBQ’ing in my oven. And made some BBQ ranch chicken wraps.I’ve convinced myself that these were better than the actual grilled food from the night before. Shhhh…. don’t try to tell me otherwise.I also had iced tea. In a glass. Another quirk I think I get from my mom. She always says that iced tea tastes better out of a glass. I sort of believe it.
Do you have any quirks or weird ways you picked up from one of your parents? Give me some good ones…
I almost forgot to tell you about the cookies I attempted. I used Julie’s three-ingredient peanut butter cookie recipe. And then added some white chocolate chips. Because I have an obsession.They were sooooo peanut-buttery good. My only problem is they fell apart pretty easily. But for a quick treat, they worked. Thanks Julie!
Tonight’s a night of cross training. Which is fine. It’s supposed to be rainy all week, so I don’t mind. I’ve been contemplating a 5k next Sunday, but just can’t make up my mind. I think all the rain in the forecast isn’t helping. Plus, I’m volunteering at a race on Saturday, so that gives me no days of sleeping in next weekend. Hmmm… I’ve also got my eye on a couple other random 5ks this month, so we’ll see what happens. I think I just have an itch to do a race…
Ok kids… it’s time for me to reluctantly start moving…. ugh. Have a good week! :p
