One of the perks of being a teacher is snow days! Unfortunately, my school didn’t build any emergency days into the calendar, so we will have to make it up in June. I figure though, since I have it, I need to enjoy it!
Since I was already drinking my morning coffee when I got the call, I decided to work out instead of going back to sleep. I figured my running club will probably be cancelled tonight, and I didn’t want to be sliding all over the sidewalks and roads, so I opted for the treadmill today.
I ran a total of 6 miles. I did a 2 mile warm-up pace, 2 miles at a tempo pace, and then 2 miles at a cool down pace. I put the treadmill at a 1% incline, too, to make it more like the outdoors. It’s surprising how much more energy I have for my run after my morning coffee. I usually go before the coffee on normal days. After the run, I did On-Demand Yoga for runners. I have never done On-Demand Yoga before, but I liked it. I think I will feel sore tomorrow, but I do feel like I got a good stretch.
Even just walking back from the apartment complex gym, I got covered in snow! To warm up and reward myself for a good workout, I made a Gevalia foam-at-home caramel macchiato. I got this as a free sample, and it was absolutely delicious. It tasted just as good as Starbucks, but with less calories! I am thinking about ordering some online, but they are pretty expensive! Maybe, I can find some more free samples….
This is not related to the snow day, but I wanted to share this delicious omelette I made on Sunday. I had never made an omelette before, and this was a huge success. It is made from egg whites and is filled with mushrooms, spinach, and just a hint of monterey jack cheese. I definitely need more omelettes in my life!
Now, for a day filled with old Christmas movies and comfy clothes!
Is it snowing in your neck of the woods? Do you have a favorite post-workout treat?
