How was your Saturday? Mine was lazy. I start back to school on Monday so I spent today chilling out and it was awesome.
I started my day with an amazing bowl of oats which included delicious crystallized ginger. Putting the ginger in the oats was great because they have a little bit of sugar which sweetened up the oats a bit. I love me some crystallized ginger!
I added some unsweetened coconut to the oats also because I have a ton left over from my baking adventures. I love the unsweetened coconut. The ginger was already sweet so I didn’t want any more sugar in my breakfast.
After breakfast I went to the Farmers Market which was hopping today.
I like to know that the chickens are “happy chickens that like to hang out in their area”. I’m also debating switching to local butter and local meat. I don’t often buy meat so I think local organic meat might be a good upgrade.
I also was delighted to find and new snack at TJ’s:
After lunch I went on a 7.35 mile run. I haven’t run more than 5 since before winter break and it felt good to get out and got for a nice long run. I went faster than I did for my 5 miler on Thursday and it felt great! I feel really good about this upcoming year in races. Should be a good year in running! I stuck to my training plan (for the most part) this week. I didn’t totally keep it but that’s OK because I was sick and I was getting back into serious running after a break. Overall I logged 16 miles and it feels good to be back!
Tomorrow is my last day of vacation. I plan to run a few necessary errands and relax and enjoy my Sunday New York Times!
Hope your weekend is groovy too 🙂
