Wednesday [Long Run, Food and Sterling]

When I woke up this morning (yes, I am writing this at 11:20 on Wednesday morning) I decided to do a long run. Usually when I do that, I have planned a bit the night before and am more ready. When I say plan I mean fill my bottle with tailwind or plan a route.

This morning I just decided that since I have the day off and it was warm, it would be great to get a last long run in. I also meet my women’s running group this morning, so at least 8 of the miles would have some conversation.

Well, I forgot about nutrition, but felt pretty good so I figured I would wing it. The first 10 miles were great. I run 2 miles to meet the women and then we do about 8 around Ithaca. I left them and then ran around Stewart Park intending to do Cass park as well for a total of 18 miles. Well, after 4 miles around Stewart, I had to poop really bad, so I made for my gym and used the facilities. I then did 2 more miles on the treadmill finishing at about 9AM. I forgot my watch so I figure I got in about 16-17 miles which was perfect.

I decided to switch it up for breakfast today and made a bowl of savory oats (inspired by Gena at The Full Helping) containing Daiya cheese, vegan sausage and sautéed mushrooms.

On the side I had some potatoes I got from work. They were part of a “Tuscan Potato Salad” but I really only wanted the potatoes so I removed the peppers, eggplant and tomatoes. Winning.


I don’t have too many other plans today except laundry and maybe getting some groceries (animal crackers are running low). I decided to be a chef and make Cool Ranch Doritos to go with my lunch. These are amazing tasting and it’s been a while since I made them. I also need to make my coworker Jill some muffins for her birthday. I am going to do a sweet potato muffin. That’s about all I’ve decided.

Some other photos of the moment:


Repping that Brockport hoodie at work.


Scary cupcakes for Halloween made their CTB debut.


If you’ve never put shaved sautéed Brussel sprouts in a salad before, do it. Whole other level of deliciousness.


Sterling is helping me make Doritos. He likes to do that.

What do you do on your day off?

  1. OMG dying at that last photo. HAHA. I also find myself neeeeeding that scary cupcake. Awesome run! My days off consist of leisurely drinking coffee, a run/bike ride/hike, and hopefully great food.
