Because I just ate way too much! We had our holiday lunch and it was so delicious! I am officially in a food coma for the rest of the afternoon. This one guy made these wonderful chocolate cookie balls! I could only eat one because I was already stuffed BUT I did sneak one for tomorrow's lunch! I confronted him and asked him for the recipe:
1 block of cream cheese (I think its about 8 ounces?)
1 package of oreos
A few Herseychocolate bars
Put oreos in food processor and blend then mix with cream cheese. Put chocolate in microwave until smooth. Form oreo paste into ball forms and dip them into chocolate, then place on wax paper and refrigerate until hard! They are absolutely amazing!!
This morning I did run and it was very cold for the Winter Misery One Mile (22F feels like 8F). I ran over into the neighborhood across the street and did 5 hills to make sure I was warmed up. As I was running up the second hill, I almost got run over by a 4 point deer. It had to be less than 4 feet from me and just ran across the street. Once I got over my shock and finished the hills I made my way to my unofficial start line.
I had mapped out a route that led me back to my apartment and just started running. I felt good most of the way. The last 100 feet were the worst as I was sucking some serious wind. I hadn't run that fast in a while. My goal was to run sub 7 minutes and I ran 6:39. My total run was 2.85 miles.
As I was about halfway through my mile I made a promise to my legs, and God too, that if I didn't fall on the icy sidewalk I would foam roll when I got home. Well I didn't fall and so I got out my new orange foam roller that I just bought 3 weeks ago and rolled away. IT HURT A LOT! My IT band on both sides was quite painful and my legs ached for most of the morning but now I feel ok!
Tonight I am meeting Kaylie for spin class with The Goddess and then tomorrow afternoon I have a running date with a girl who works at my company!!
2 more days until Christmas!! Merry Tuesday!
