Track work, toffee, and randomness

Q.What follows a bad week of running?

A. A GREAT week of running!

Tuesday night I hit the track with my running partner for some awesome 800s. They were my best yet! Repeats: 3:08, 3:15, 3:09, 3:08, 3:09. I think I did so well with them because I kept looking at my watch. When I would hit the .30 in the split, I would tell myself “Come on Nicole, you can do this, it’s only .20 more!!” And then I would book it.

Kristina is awesome and took a bunch of pictures and a video of me killing it. I would show you all the video but I’m not tech savvy enough to know how to upload it…


After the track it was his and her compression time…


Randomness for your Wednesday:
One of my students came to class a few weeks back with toffee. I love toffee. He offered me some but I passed-but since then, I couldn’t stop thinking about it! Fast forward to two weekends ago:
I decided that for family fun day, I would pick up some toffee at the grocery store in the gourmet section. Only there was no toffee to be found! so my brilliant husband said these life changing words: “Why don’t we make some? he is just so smart.

This past Friday night, that’s what we did: we made toffee! It was really easy and I can tell you it’s just the best toffee ever! I’m envisioning an entrepreneurship with the millions of kinds of toffee I can make.


These are some of the best/funniest meme’s I’ve seen lately…I had to share:

  1. Ohhh wow, that toffee looks delicious!!! Way to go!! Also, great job on your 800’s! It always feels great to hit track work! Definitely builds confidence!! XOXO!! Happy October!!

  2. Ooh, that toffee looks amazing! And way to kill the 800s! Someday I hope I’ll be half as fast as you when I do my track workouts 🙂

  3. Hahahaha I love those!!! I told you that you would kill it this week BOSS LADY!!! Too bad you couldn’t upload the video I would have loved to see you putting in work at the track. Ohhhhh you took a picture of the huz in his compression socks. Did he say he would kill you if you posted a pic of him in those hahaha. Should I send out a search party to locate your body hahaha lol 🙂

  4. Those are too funny! Definitely lol for me. Hunting elephants, of course. Amazing splits! And the toffee was almost too much deliciousness to look at for me. Paleo version perhaps? Or maybe I’ll have to deal with the consequences 🙂

    • I know…I always want to say something really stupid when someone asks me an obnoxious question like that-from now on, “hunting elephants” it is!!:)
      The toffee was so so good, I can’t even stand it! I would figure out a paleo version of toffee for you if I knew how!! You’re the paleo master and I’m sure you could!!

  5. Hahaha that last one was funny!
    Awesome job the the repeats! Speed work on the track has always been hard for me. I know people say don’t look at your watch but I’m working you, it’s motivating and you can mentally break it up.
