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.
But the best pancakes are the ones you don't have to cook!
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.
Sheet Pizza Yes
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?
