1. I started reading Gillian Flynn’s Dark Places last night and just like Gone Girl I can’t put it down! Dark Places has a different, creepier (in my opinion) vibe than Gone Girl but I’m really enjoying it. Looks like I’ll be reading her other book, Sharp Objects, soon as well.
2. My soreness/stiff legs from the treadmill finally went away! I can’t believe how much that 16 mile treadmill run wrecked my legs. It’s funny because I ran 16 miles a few weeks ago and I wasn’t running a speed out of my reach but my legs were so sore afterwards. I even had to rearrange some runs this week to accommodate extra recovery time. Good thing this week is designed to be a cutback week! My guess is that I was striding differently on the treadmill than I would outside? I sincerely hope that I won’t have to do any more long runs on the ‘mill until after training is over!
3. I tried a new kind of waffles today.
I forgot to pick up the usual ones at TJ’s last week and after 4 days of oatmeal, I was really missing variety [... in the form of waffles]. I stopped by Whole Foods on my way home last night and grabbed a box of these guys.
This morning I had two with sunflower seed butter, banana, and microwaved frozen strawberries. The waffles had a richer flavor than the kind I usually buy and I enjoyed it!
Also, can I ask how is it only Thursday? I keep seeing all of these blog posts or Facebook statuses claiming they can’t believe it’s already Thursday. No no no.. this week isn’t flying by it’s dragging on .
Either way I’m going to look on the bright side and say that we only have two more days until the weekend, that’s pretty exciting right?
Because I want to get ahead of myself, what are your fun plans for the weekend? I’m going home to Michigan and going to Ann Arbor for the Michigan vs. Michigan State game. I can’t wait!
