Saturday: 13 mile run (in a snowstorm)
Really? It's Monday again?
Why does this keep happening?
We had a nice date at the gym for some weights on Friday.
Then we completely undid the work with some pizza!
Snow was predicted starting around 3 a.m. Saturday morning, so I wasn't sure what I would wake up to in the morning - besides really cold temps.
|Our winter wonderland neighborhood|
Sure enough, it snowed! And was still snowing on my way to running club.
Luckily I had an escort ahead of me on my drive.
Yes, that's a blurry salt truck.
Luckily I didn't have any trouble arriving at running club. It snowed our entire run. All 13 miles. I thought I would only do 6-8 since it was so cold out, but I got talked into more.
It was so pretty peaceful out though.
The first 11 miles were fun. The last 2 miles were not so fun.
At that point I was pretty wet and cold and couldn't feel my fingers.
I wore 2 pairs of pants, 2 pairs of gloves and 2 pairs of socks.
Thankfully we had hot chocolate and coffee waiting for us back at Mojo. I think it was the best hot chocolate EVER. Once I got home and took a hot shower I climbed back in bed to warm up under the covers for a while.
Sunday we decided to make a rest day. I wasn't feeling so good Saturday night - horrible headache and nausea. We did get a lot done around the house and also did our fair share of laying around.
I had a few apples to use up and I've been wanting to try this recipe from Pinterest, so I threw it all in the crock pot last night and voila - breakfast was ready in the morning!
It was super easy:
Slice 2 apples, throw them in the bottom of the crock pot.
Sprinkle 1/4 cup brown sugar on top of apples.
Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
2 cups of oatmeal
Pour 4 cups of water on top.
Do NOT stir.
Cook for 8-9 hours.
Hope your week is off to a great start!
