Ok, this really has nothing to do with waffles, with the exception of my recent obsession with breakfast food - made some killer cinnamon roll buckwheat pancakes last weekend and have been enjoying the leftovers all week.
My alarm didn't go off this morning so I didn't get up in time to run. Hell, I hardly got up in time to walk Molly and haul my un-showered butt to work. So all day I was watching the weather, thinking that I'd go home and run after work if it wasn't raining. Hubby and puppy came home this afternoon, and I had plans to make dinner, so running was looking like less and less of a possibility. My plan was to run today and catch a Turkey Day yoga class tomorrow. I hopped on the yoga studio's Web site to check tomorrow's schedule, only to find that they were only offering a 2 hour 9:30AM class that would likely be PACKED. At this point, I started thinking maybe I'd try to go to a later yoga class tonight and save my run for tomorrow. After all, the weather is supposed to be much nicer tomorrow. So back and forth like this I went all afternoon, literally until the point I got home and realized that what I had laid out to fix for dinner was still totally FROZEN. PLAN B!! Off I went for a very nice run. Yoga tomorrow... maybe. Worst case scenario I can finally break out the yoga DVD I keep threatening to use.
One thing I have realized this week is that I'm enjoying my runs without Molly much more than I expected. I'm ashamed to say I think she was holding me back a little. ;) I can keep a comfortable pace that seems a bit faster than I've been running lately and I think I push myself a little harder because I'm not worried about pushing her to hard.
Hubby came home with our (now huge) puppy today and I think it won't be too long before puppy's ready to start running with me. He seems to prefer jogging to walking. Sprinting's even better! He's a handful, but he's going to be an awesome dog, and hopefully his genetics are much better than Molly's and he'll turn out to be a long time running partner. Next trick: Down Dog!
