I hope your weekend was a good one! I had a very enjoyable weekend and while I didn’t get everything done I wanted to (when do I ever?), I am thankful for the break from work and extra time I had to spend at home and with Craig.
Saturday morning before my long run, I wiped up a batch of Whole Grain Glory Muffins. I don’t often make recipes multiple times, but this is one that I will not grow tired of. These muffins are chalk full of flavor and not dry at all.
They are packed with carrots, apples, raisins, and shredded coconut. With all those ingredients, there really isn’t much dough to the muffin, which I like. Look at all those colors and whole ingredients.
I also love my reusable muffin cups. I feel much better using these because I don’t have to waste paper and my muffin tin stays in good condition.
The final result. Even Craig, who is not a fan of many quick breads gobbled these up.
My long run was done outside on Saturday. It was about 25*F, so not horrible, but I am already counting down the days until I am able to run in one layer of clothing. I covered 11 miles in 1:36. This was definitely nothing fast, but it was supposed to be an easy run anyway.
I felt good throughout the run and enjoyed my time of being able to run. After my run I went to the gym for my 30 minute abs class.
Saturday afternoon and evening was pretty low-key: a trip to the dog park, time at home getting things done around the house, and then out to dinner at Table 6.
Sunday afternoon I met up with Joanne for a run through the neighborhood. We covered 6 miles at an easy 9:30 pace. It was so nice to have someone to run with. I can’t believe how fast the time goes by.
Tonight for our dinner with friends and weekly watching of The Walking Dead, I made Happiness Pie. This is a strong tradition with our cross country running training camp before school started, and I will be sharing the recipe later this week. This is one you do not want to miss!
Time for some questions. Please comment below. . . .
1. What was your workout this weekend?
2. How often do you run/workout with others?
I am lucky if I run with others once a week. It is usually only once or twice a month, but I would love to run with others more often!
3. What are you looking forward to this week?
This upcoming weekend I will be celebrating my 31st birthday! eek!
