Last night, I was happily tucked in bed by 8:30PM and fast asleep by 9PM. The deluge of work and late night long runs were starting to take a toll on my body and a good night’s rest was exactly what I needed. I woke up feeling well-rested, famished and excited to bake.
I veered away from the red hotdogs and prepared my own breakfast – baked eggs and a strawberry banana smoothie. I dropped by the grocery yesterday and was happy to find strawberry yogurt from the Macalauan Farm. This dairy farm is in Laguna and I’ve found that they have the best full cream milk. Their yogurt was perfect for my breakfast smoothie. 🙂
My dog, who just gave birth, has been really paranoid about people going anywhere near her puppies. Her being over-protective got her jammed in between the banister. 😛
She wanted to check on them without having to go down the stairs.
The plan was to bake chocolate oatmeal cookies and pound cake for tomorrow’s run. I was very happy to be baking for such a wonderful group of people.
I decided to turn the pound cake into a marble cake for our very dedicated Coach 🙂
Am hoping for good weather tomorrow, and that my legs endure the 36K run.
