On Tuesday I did something that I have never done before. Three guesses as to what it was. Come on..give it your best shot..
I went running with a friend!
Yes..it’s true. Although I’ve been a runner for many many years, I’ve never gone running with a friend! (for all of you jokesters out there wondering –> yes, I have friends besides this one, none of the others run.)
Here are some things I learned about running with a friend:
-You will chat a lot which makes the time fly right on by!
-When you plan to run with a friend it is a great motivator. I rushed to get ready for running. Some days, I end up
eating candy procrastinating for hours.
-It is way more fun to run with someone else than by yourself!
We had a great run, about 8.50 miles together in about 1:14, I ended up doing 9 1/2 altogether running from my house to her house and back.
Yesterday I went running (solo, wahhh) and even though it was SO COLD outside I made myself hit the streets because today it is SNOWING.
IM SICK OF IT. SNOW MAKES ME DO CRAZY THINGS, LIKE WRITING ALL IN CAPS. (7.60 miles in 1:04)
Anyways.. it’s treadmill time today. Probably 9 maybe 10 miles? Normally I would do 13 miles mid week, but I am really trying to stick to my tapering plan, so just 9-10 it is.
Last night I did some planning for an awesome Friday night valentines dinner menu…Shrimp Fra Diavolo over angel hair pasta and chocolate raspberry Martinis.
Chocolate Rasberry Martini Recipe
-Three Olives Chocolate Vodka
-Dekuyper Razzmatazz Schnapps (you can use chambord, too but I went with the knock off brand!)
-light cranberry juice
-frozen or fresh raspberries for garnish (not necessary, I happened to have some in the freezer)
2 parts chocolate vodka, 1 part Smirnoff, 1 part Razzmatazz, 1 part cranberry juice. Shake vigorously over ice. Serve in a chilled glass. Makes two servings.
It’s treadmill time… I think this snow day picture pretty much sums up my day so far:
What’s the weather like where you are?
Who worked out today? Inside or outside? How do you handle the snow?
Have any vday plans? I wanna hear all about it!
Run Free, Run Strong!
