Decembering over here like a champ. If I counted cookies as miles, I’d be in for some big PRs in 2017! But alas, I’m running when I can and feel like it and spending time with my family, taking care of stuff I’ve put off, and relaxing when I’m not. I used to love to bake and finally got my mojo back, cranking out dozens of Christmas cookies. My kids love snickerdoodles. I venture to say they might be the most underrated cookies out there. Wow, they’re good when they’re good! I’ve also baked loads of my grandma’s amazing chocolate chip cookies with oats and nuts. Mmmm. They are caramelly and so delicious! Between the fewer miles, the relaxing, and the cookies, I might be sporting a few happy pounds come January and I’m a-ok with that!
Hope you’re feeling festive too! What are your favorite Christmas cookies?
Mon: 8 miles with Jasmine on the roads.
Tue: 8 miles in the very cold with 6 x :30ish strides.
Wed: 7 miles on the roads. Felt better than I have in a while.
Thu: Off. Snow day!
Fri: 6 mile equivalent on elliptical (I go by hr and time – 55 minutes at 140-150 hr on the elliptical is about the stress of an easy 6 miles, I’d eyeball).
Sat: Had every intention of doing a longish run, but slept in. Played Super Mario with my son. Baked.
Sun: 6 on icy/snowy trails with Coriander and Cinnamon! Good enough this week!
Total: 35ish miles-ish
