I hit up the gym after work for a short and sweet workout. I did some quality miles on the treadmill today – 4.0 miles at a 7:44 min/mile pace. They felt fab. I think I sweat more during those four miles than I did during my ten mile run yesterday.
I have spend plenty of time in this position during the month of December. I have challenged myself to do a daily wall-sit, attempting to make each day longer than the last. Today I spent over SIX minutes on the wall (6:08)… good times.
The reason I ran fast(er) today? The faster you run, the faster you can go home and eat PANCAKES. It was incredibly scary yesterday when both my mom, my dad, and I said we had been craving pancakes for dinner but none of us said anything until after dinner so it was a unanimous decision to have them tonight!
Breakfast for dinner means that you
should must eat in your pajamas. It’s only natural.
Blueberry pancakes topped with nothing but the best. Actually, peanut butter is the best topping for pretty much anything. Crunchy peanut butter, obviously.
I had to include some berries on my pancakes as well. They add some delicious nutrients and vitamins to my delicious pancakes… that, and I needed the berry juice to wash down the copious amounts of peanut butter that was added to my pancakes.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
It felt good to hit the treadmill hard. I chose a long and slow run yesterday so my legs felt ready to run faster today… not longer, but faster. Quality versus quantity, right?
