Sleepy Sleepy

Happy Hump DAY!

I wish I could say that with more enthusiasm. Last night I woke up at 2am and could not fall asleep again until nearly 4:30am!!!! Needless to say I didn’t wake up for my 5am run. I am not sure why I had such CRAPY sleep. I am glad that today is pretty chill, I might have to take a couple walks at work to keep me up!!!

I did manage to make a wonderful breakfast! I have leftovers from Sunday’s Pumpkin Banana Pancakes.

I topped them with 1/2 banana and a little Homemade Pumpkin Butter They tasted just as good as the day I baked them!

That pumpkin butter recipe is really good! I noticed the one I bought from Williams Sonoma is almost too sweet, but not ht ehomemade one.

Sounds like a killer treadmill workout. Do you have any hill workouts you wouldn't mind sharing? I want to incorperate more hill workouts into my training for races and am open to any advice!

Great workout! And awesome pancakes.

I should totally start to freeze pancakes for weekday morning ease!
