A Lazy Sunday, Cinnamon Roll Pancakes, & My Training

And some cinnamon roll pancakes! I thought, “hey, it’s my last day of vacation, gotta make me an awesome breakfast!” Do you ever make stuff you find on Pinterest and it doesn’t quite turn out how you expected? That was my breakfast. I’ve been drooling over these cinnamon roll pancakes for a while. But something was off, too much butter maybe cause the filling was a bit runny. So mine looked like this…

Sad but kinda funny, huh. They actually tasted amazing. I think I just have to work on my technique. 🙂

I spent the rest of my day watching movies on the couch preparing myself to get back to work tomorrow.

Running… my long run didn’t happen yesterday. We had a family crisis. Our family dog, really my mom’s dog was really sick. But hopefully he’s on the way to getting better. He’s the little brother I never had.

My long run didn’t happen today either. Between my gym being closed & no one to run with today it’s a wash. And I’m okay with that.

After hitting 46 miles last week, them down to a measley 8 miles this week between my injury & family stuff, I’m ready to get back on track. And my half marathon is next weekend. Hmmmm…. this week my goal is to get some easy runs & a bit of speed work in. Its been a couple years since I’ve tapered for a half. Ugh I should’ve done my research before now. So not like me…

For those of you that have been on vacation and gotta get up early and go back to work tomorrow, good luck! I feel your pain! I think one more week I would’ve been good.

How did you spend your Sunday?

Are you looking forward to getting back to work?

We Ate, Now We Rest

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving!

I spent mine at my aunt’s house. Most of the day my job was keeping my mom & aunt in line helping them with the cooking.

After my cousin carved the turkey. We did Thanksgiving Day justice! I’ll have to say my favorite food was my aunt’s homemade stuffing & my cousin’s hershey bar cake!
