Happy hump day! I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already. This week is flying by which is crazy. Have a great day friends 🙂
Yesterday was much easier to wake up than it was on Monday morning thankfully! With the time change, the sun comes up as I’m getting ready which makes getting out of bed much better. Since trying oatmeal made us late for work, we decided to stick with what we know and have scrambled eggs for breakfast. I always top mine with salt, pepper and Frank’s hot sauce.
Work was another good day and flew by. I stuck with my usual peanut butter sandwich, pretzels, carrots and spicy hummus. Considering how long I’ve been eating this for lunch, it’s amazing I haven’t gotten sick of it.
While at work, I could hear it raining outside and weather.com said it was going to be raining for most of the night. This made for a very wet run. I think my clothes were soaked after about half a mile. I’m sure I got a lot of weird looks from everyone driving by me since it was also in the low 40s. Remember how I said I wore shorts and a t-shirt on Monday’s run? I wore a long sleeve, 7/8 length pants and high socks on the run last night. I may have jinxed the last of the good weather. Running wise, I got 3 easy recovery miles in at a 10:34 average pace.
When I got back from my run, I immediately hopped in the shower to warm up. I know I should have stretched first but that was the last thing on my mind once I got back. Don’t worry though, I did stretch once I put warm clothes on. Once I hung my clothes up to dry, I grabbed an apple to snack on. The apples from our date back in September are still good. Maybe because we kept them in the fridge? To be honest, I had no idea apples lasted this long.
Alex got home from work and started a fire. Poor guy wanted a fire all weekend but it was always too warm for it. He was very happy to have cooler temperatures last night. While he got that going, I heated up leftover pasta to have for dinner. I sprinkled a little bit of parmesan cheese on and it hit the spot. It’s possible I ate my entire bowl in about 60 seconds. Alex can probably answer that for you if you’re really interested 😉
After dinner, we cuddled up on the couch by the fire. Alex did some work to prep for a work event that he has this week while I booked our tickets for Christmas to go back to Chicago. I read more before heading to bed.
Question of the day: What is your favorite running/walking/working out safety device? I’m in the market for one since it’s getting dark so early now.
