I saw 5 moose on my run this morning!
Within a couple minutes of starting, I spotted a mom and baby bedded down in someone’s front yard. Then half-way through, I saw three more moose literally hanging out on someone’s front porch area. It was crazy! After that, I don’t know how many times I scared myself silly thinking a large rock or bag of trash was a moose!
This morning’s run was a 6 mile out and back route. I went out “easy” and came back “hard” trying to have negative splits on the way back. On runs like these, I wish I had someone with to push me because I start losing focus on what I am doing and my pace starts to slow down. I did my best to keep a good, steady pace the entire time though.
It was a good run. My legs felt fresh after a day off yesterday. I finished in 47 minutes.
I knew exactly what I wanted before I headed out the door this morning. I love hot oats after a cold run!
Homemade Scottish oats + milk + water + flax seed + brown sugar + raisins + sunflower seed butter
I didn’t think I would like sunflower seed butter as much as I do! I’m not sure what it is about it–maybe I just overdosed on peanut butter and almond butter, but my jar of sunflower butter is almost gone. I also had a blueberry scone, which I made yesterday. This isn’t necessarily a healthy recipe, but I like to treat myself every once in a while!
A piece of leftover Tortilla Bake. (I just realized I never blogged about this recipe–oops.)
What is the oddest/coolest animal you’ve encountered on a run?
