Wow-where this weekend went is beyond me. Last night, I got a migraine and layed in bed watching movies and whatever else from 6:30 pm until 8am. It was fabulous but I’m still some what tired. So strange.
If you have been one of my blogging BFFS for over a month, you know where my favorite restaurant around school is. Foxy Roxys (the diner with humungous and best pancakes ever.), Which is where I went this morning, because I clearly need fuel for a 9 mile run today.
My little ladies were so cute and they raved about how much they had missed me the last month or so. I missed them a lot too and I’m actually not sure why I hadn’t been there at all during March.
My run was 9 miles at about an 8 minute pace. I’m building up my base again, so I’ll take any injury free miles. I’m not too worried that it wasn’t as fast as I would have liked.
For dinner (because I bypassed lunch), I made pizza. Homemade pizza that is. I seriously had the biggest fear that it would be hard concept to master but blogging BFFS it is the legit easiest thing I have ever made by myself. (minus pancakes obviously)
This is just kind of my recipe but it is still in the process of additions/subtractions so ideas are always welcome:
2 cups flour
½ cup water
Knead the dough and put into some sort of baking dish. I used a Pyrex because I don’t own any pizza pans (YET).
Add pizza sauce and cheese
Add your variety of toppings today was asparagus, olives and mushrooms because those were the vegetables I could find in my house.
And cook on 450 degrees for 15 minutes until the dough turns golden bornw and the cheese melts.
I will be making this a lot more.
A week in review:
Well on the nonworking out aspect, I had 4 tests last week which was kind of a pain and it kept me super busy. I’m actually surprised I was able to get everything in that I wanted but I obviously cannot complain.
Speaking of my training, here is a run down of last week:
Running: 36 miles
Swimming: 2 hours
Arctrainer: 4.5 hours
My goal was too replace 30 minutes of Arc with 3 miles of running which I did. I was also to swim 3000 yards twice this week which I also did. I cut down in total 2.5 hours of Arctrainer this week so I’m pleased with that. That might sound strange-but going from Arctrainering to running involves a lot more cutting of cross training.
I’m really proud of this workout week.
Next week, I plan to switch my miles around a little bit and make my longer run longer and shorten down a midweek run. It seems reasonable and not too much pressure. So in short my goals for next week are
Running: Between 35-40 miles
Swimming: 2-3 hours
Arctrainer: 2-4 hours (I want this to go down to about 2 hours a week when my running hits it’s peak).
Questions for you:
1. What is on your radar next week?
On the nonworking out end, I have a big education test called the LAST next Saturday so wish me luck. I can’t become a certified teacher in NY state without passing that test so it’s rather important. I’ll also be rather busy since I’m going to the high school 3 times next week. I have to go cheer on my students participating in the Mathelites competition on Tuesday. Wish their little smarty pants good luck. 🙂 But all of that is better than studying for a mass amount of tests.
2. Ever made homemade pizza?
