My hands got a rude awakening while running this morning in 4 degree weather!
Instead of wearing my big, thick ski mittens, I wore a pair of thin, fleece gloves, and as you can see, my hands paid the price. It was super painful!!
I managed to cover 5 miles in 42 minutes this morning without falling. Seriously! It is so slippery out there! It was a recovery run since I ran twice yesterday (7 miles in the a.m., 3 miles in the p.m.), so I took it at a nice, easy pace.
Yahoo! Today is our first half-day of the week, which means I only had to teach half of the day and then we had teacher in-service the second half of the day.
This morning I took time to make oatmeal for both Craig and myself.
I have to admit that I’m not sure how much I like oatmeal anymore. Gasp! I know, right? This must be a sin in the healthy living blogging community.
This is the recipe I use pretty much every time, so maybe I need to change something up a bit? Any suggestions?
1/4 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1/2 banana, sliced
1 teaspoon agave nectar
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon flax seed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
Today’s toppings: peanut butter + jelly
I also had a container of Chobani yogurt. I used to love this yogurt, but then grew tired of it. After a break, I had a container yesterday and today, but decided I am still tired of it.
It’s all good though because I still like taking plain yogurt and adding random toppings–plus it is way cheaper!
What is/was your workout today?
(I was going to ask what the weather is like where you live, but I think that would just depress me more?!?!?)
