Running 4 recovery miles at some point (it’s currently in the 20’s). I’m thinking I’ll do my 10-Minute Arms & Core Circuit as well.
My left hip is extremely sore, so I’ll be doing lots and lots of stretching today and perhaps a bit of icing too. I hate icing because I find it to be a pain in the arse because I can’t do anything else, but I feel it must be done today.
On the plus side, I ate all the cookies there are no cookies left that I made recently for some strange reason, so I won’t be eating 500 today (unlike the past few days).
These cookies that I speak of are my, more or less, perfected recipe for almond oatmeal cookies.
I’ve been messing around with a general cookie recipe for awhile and made the best one yet last week! I’m super excited. When I discovered the magic of almond extract a few months ago, my life was forever changed. I got some compliments on these babies, and if you like oatmeal cookies and almonds, then you’ll probably enjoy these as well!
