I actually hit 8 minute miles.. for 4 miles! I'm really happy I finished strong and kept going till I was done with 6 miles. I have a lot of days where its just tough getting out there but I hold strong and just do it.. There are other but very few days where I want to go faster.. and this was the day. So happy to pick up the pace. Speed work felt really good and I'm not exhausted.. ready to tackle the day.
Finished my run, then decided to make some sugar cookies with some new sprinkles I bought for Halloween. I always use parchment paper when I make cookies so they slide right off the pan to cool down. Keep the pan clean and no extra work for me.Logan wants to make some cupcakes and top them with sprinkles, so I'd better save some for him.
Steve baked another apple tart last night. This might have been the best one yet. He used apple jelly on the crust and then topped with the apples, cinnamon/sugar.
I did one of my favorite things yesterday afternoon. Since I couldn't run or bike due to exhaustion, I picked up some runner magazines and some other books of interest at the library. It's been way too long since I stocked up on a bunch of books/magazines to read. I was in Reading heaven!
The perfect way to spend the night.. Reading and I got a good nights sleep, finally! I really needed this rest day!
