Sunday morning I slept in until 7:51! Go me! Then I realized it was only because of the time change and I was in fact waking up at my usual ridiculously early hour on a Sunday. Oh well. I gobbled up a slice of cinnamon raisin toast with pb, honey, banana slices, and cinnamon (and coffee, obviously) before heading out to run. After my Friday afternoon 20 miler, I took it easy with a 60 min spin class on Saturday, and my legs were still a little stiff when I woke up on Sunday. I hoped to get in 10-13 easy miles.
The first few miles my legs were feeling a little tired, as expected. But as I kept going, I realized I was feeling absolutely amazing! The sun was shining, I was engrossed in my audiobook, and all was right with the world. I ended up running 15 and would have gone further, except I didn’t have any water or fuel with me and I didn’t want to over do it. It is runs like this that I live for.
My left knee is feeling a little cranky today, but hopefully I will be as good as new after giving the old leggies a rest today. Tonight will mark the inaugural swim in the saline pool at Gold’s Gym. Steve and I have a swimming date. Awwww. So dorky, I know. We have never swam (swum?) together before and I hope he isn’t faster than me.
Back to Sunday and the most important part of this post. We enjoyed dinner at Panera for the second week in a row (classic salad & black bean soup), but that is not as important as what happened afterwards.
Kopp’s frozen Custard!! I am sorry to say that if you are not from Wisconsin I don’t think you can understand the importance and udder deliciousness that is frozen custard. Here in the dairy state, we do not do fro-yo. We do frozen custard. The flavor was Chocolate Thunder. Light chocolate custard, candied pecan clusters, whole pecans, chocolate flakes, fudge, & pastry chunks. Oh yes. It was every bit as out of control as you might imagine. I also helped Steve finish his hot fudge Sunday because I am a good wife. Then when we got home Steve rubbed my tired legs because he is a good husband. See? It’s all about the giving. I have to say it was the best possible way to end the weekend!
Have you ever tried frozen custard? Is it common where you live?
