I was supposed to run 2 miles/3 km on Friday but I didn't. It was so terribly cold and my transfer bus didn't show up so I waited for a bus in -35C weather for 52 minutes. I was cold to the bone. And home 45 minutes later than normal. Once I got home, I put on my pj's and turned on my fireplace, and cranked up the heat and made veggie pizza. It was perfect. I really didn't want to get into the habit of skipping runs so I intend to reschedule them to still get them in. The following morning was spin class so I got there early and did the 2 miles first before class. Spin class as usual was fantastic and a tough workout.
That afternoon, I went shopping around with a friend. Hit the usual places, Bulk Barn, Costco, the mall. It was at Costco where I gave myself a little challenge, hehe. I bought the six-pack of peppers. It was cheap, I couldn't resist! I keep paying almost as much for three from the grocery store but I also have a thing this year where I'm really trying very hard not to throw out food and so far, I haven't. So this week is the 6 pepper challenge :) We also went to a store called Sport Mart. It's closing so the entire store was 40% off and their prices were reasonable to begin with. I got some New Balance runners for $40. I'm going to use them for workout classes. I know I shouldn't be using my running runners for classes like that. Breaks them down faster and hurts the side walls I think. I also got a Gaiam yoga mat for $10. I needed one for home because I leave my original one at work so I'm not carting it back & forth on the bus. My friend got a couple of amazing deals. She got awesome Bladerunner ice skates and great winter boots and some gloves for a little over $100. Those skates alone originally were almost $90 I think. I love a deal!! Speaking of deals, I got my shipping notice for both my compression socks and my MEC order. So excited!
Shut Up & Run had a good post on it a while back and I have a heart rate monitor so that's something I'm going to figure out this week.
After my run, my neighbour and I made brunch. Eggs Benedict. I made mine a a veggie benedict with goat cheese, spinach and tomatoes. It was so so so delicious. Just as good as any restaurant I've had eggs benny at. Now I'm just relaxing and watching season 3 of Felicity on netflix. Man, I loved that show a million years ago!!
