Seriously. After yesterday’s tempo run, I’m convinced that if I could just have someone volunteer to run in front of me with some type of flat screen on their back that is playing Game of Thrones, I could probably win the race.
Again, I did a 2 mile warm-up followed by 5 miles at 7:13 min/mi (4:29 min/km) and it was totally manageable…but I suspect mostly because I am COMPLETELY sucked into the awesomeness of GOT. I just finished Season 1 and because I only watch GOT while running, I can’t wait until I get to jump on the TM again!! LOL So yeah, let me know if you want to volunteer for this job!
On Sunday night I was invited to a friend’s house for dinner and I so immediately offered to bring dessert. It was a little self-serving because I had been craving Nanaimo bars.
Now, I know these are a Canadian specialty so if you had not yet had these, you MUST if you ever have the chance (simple ingredients: sugar, butter, cocoa and a little dash of vanilla, eggs, graham crumbs and coconut). It was just two of us for dinner so there were SOME leftovers (LOL) and I brought them into work…yeah, they were gone in about 2.3 seconds.
Last night I went over to a friend’s house…and hung out in their hot tub.
Ohhhhhh, soooooo good. And because yesterday was so “warm” (it was around 3F/-16C with NO windchill), I actually didn’t squeal in between getting out of the hot tub and wrapping my towel around me…actually, truth be told, I just stood there for a while, enjoying the “warm” air. #nojoke #iamcanadian
Rest day today. I love running…but I also LOVE rest days. 🙂
