This morning dawned snowy and…also rainy. With eight to ten inches of fresh powder trapping everyone in their homes, temperatures decided to rocket up to 37 degrees, causing still-falling snow to turn to cold rain and generally making for a miserable atmosphere.
What did I do about this, you may be wondering? Well, first I went running.
“Help, I’ve frozen and I can’t get up.”
It was disgusting. I was only required to run for 15-20 minutes, but it ended up being a 25-minute “run-stop-step in a melted snow puddle-run-avoid a car” type of slog.
After that, I made food! Surprise!
I didn’t, however, go as crazy as my younger brother and his friend. They ate three. Each. They’re both nine and not particularly big, either.
Oh my god.
I used a recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (“Skinny Snickerdoodles”) but accidentally made them double the size they were supposed to be, I think. Oh, well. Double the deliciousness in each cookie!!
I wonder what would happen if you combined them to make a snickerdoodle brownie cake!
We’ve got another snow day tomorrow (man! I didn’t actually want a snow day on my birthday!) which means it is officially a five-day weekend. Yes/no! While I’m enjoying the prospect of not being forced to do homework, I’ve come to semi-dread these breaks because I’m always incredibly bored.
I kind of want to spend part of my birthday at the gym, to be honest. Does that make me crazy?
On the schedule for tomorrow is a short-ish run and some foam rolling. I’ll try to eat healthy even though it’s my birthday/a holiday notorious for chocolate/I have a preposterous quantity of dessert in my house. I’m a little worried because of the regionals postponement; we’re doing some extreme tapering. A 15-minute run the week before?? Whaaat? I know it’s not like we lose a ton of fitness in a week when we’re still running, but I don’t want to let myself go or anything and end up feeling like I’m running through mud during the two mile. We’ll see what happens.
