Friday nights call for a glass of wine. They just do.
Sometimes they call for pizza too.
I made a pizza using my husband’s favorite Pillsbury pizza crust and topped it with pizza sauce, mozzarella & parmesan cheeses, onions, green bell peppers and Italian seasoning Garlic Gold. Great pizza!! I made a salad to go with it. Perfect Friday night dinner.
The rain kept waking me up in the middle of the night. All I kept thinking was, “Dump it all out! I don’t want to run in the rain tomorrow!”
The rain gods listened to me. Thank you.
I was up bright and early this morning to meet Team in Training for our Saturday run. I ate some toast with peanut butter before I left.
10 miles were on the agenda today….the longest run of my life.
I did it!
Mile 1- 11:18
Mile 2 – 10:46
Mile 3 – 11:07
Mile 4 – 10:52
Mile 5 – 10:30
Mile 6 – 10:29
Mile 7 – 10:29
Mile 8 – 10:48
Mile 9 – 10:27
Mile 10 – 10:26
The first 5 miles flew by while the last 5 were a little harder. All in all, I felt good and could have kept going if need be. I feel good about the half marathon!
On the way home, I tried a new product for me:
I’ve been wanting to try Larabars but have been wary because of the high calorie content for such a little bar. I also wanted to try the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough variety but I had a hard time finding it until now. Verdict? I liked the taste and the density of the bar. I still think the calories are too high (like 220 or something like that) for such a small bar. I think they are good for after my runs though.
Hubby took the kids to my daughter’s friend’s birthday party. I came home to change and grab a snack before running out the door to pick up my son from that party to take him to another party.
Too bad the party is not until tomorrow. UGH. I never do stuff like that. I get all the way across town to the party location just to be told I got the date wrong. Really!?! I could have been laying down resting my exhausted legs.
Since we were right next to Nordstrom, I grabbed a sandwich to go for lunch.
I felt really bad because my son was really excited about the party so I took him to pick out his birthday cake for his party next weekend. He’s turning 6. :) He was quite happy to pick out his chocolate birthday cake with cookies and cream filling.
The grocery store had a Coffee Bean so I made a beeline for it and grabbed a latte with an extra shot. Ah….life is good.
We got home, I annihilated the sandwich and now I’m lying in bed, drinking my coffee while blogging.
At some point I need to get ready for a party the husband and I are going to tonight. I hope my legs hold up.
Have you ever gone to an event on the wrong day? This is a first for me.
What is something on your “Bucket List”?
