Remember my disastrous cookie-making attempt a few days ago? I was hoping to redeem myself, and make a delicious homemade cookie that I could serve to hubby warm from the oven and earn a gazillion good wifey points. I've done it! Well...kind of.
They look good.
Hubby likes them.
My neighbor liked them so much I got a thank you note!
You guys are probably all really excited for the recipe, right? Um....can we pretend that I was a domestic goddess, and slaved over these for hours? And that they're sugar-free and packed with fiber and protein? Because the truth is just too sad.
Not even a cookie mix. PRE-MADE cookie dough. Directions:
1) spoon dough onto sheet
3) soak up compliments
Please don't sign a petition making me change my blog name to "runner who occasionally heats things up." I promise there is occasionally some gourmet-ness going on around here.
At least I can prove I am in fact running. Yesterday was speed day on the treadmill, and I tackled some 400's at a 7 minute mile pace. 7 repeats total (1:44 each), with recovery 400's in between. With warm-up, cool down, and recovery, I covered 5.5 miles in total. I was hoping to get in 8 repeats--but man these are tough!
Any food you give up on? As in--you can never make it better than the packaged/pre-made version?
I hate admitting defeat. And most foods really are better homemade! I've made great substitutions for pizza and quesadillas for hubby (his favorite fast foods) but these cookies can't be beat!
What is your favorite distance for speedwork?
400s, because they're short enough for me! Anything less takes me so long to get started, and mile repeats....ouch. Those are hard!
