Marathon Training Week 19 and Happy Banned Book Week


Last week’s training was uneventful. I ran my prescribed miles, and it was hot outside. One thing new that did happen last week in my training was that I actually did an interval workout. It has been a long time since I did my beloved HIIT workouts, and it felt like it was the first time I have ever done one. OMGoodness, it was hard. I wonder how many burpees I can do it 10 minutes. I’m thinking 50, if I’m lucky.

Today, I have an easy 4 miles to run and tomorrow an easy 3 miles. Then Saturday I will be running the St. George Marathon. Yay. These past five months went by fast.

Happy banned book week!!! Anyone reading a banned book this week?

My library loot. 

Can you believe I have never read The Catcher in the Rye? I heard it was a great book. I also have not read Lady Chatterley’s Lover. My grandmother was the one who told me about it when she asked if I had read Fifty Shades of Grey. I have and I don’t recommend it.

Last week, I made a 1234 cake with caramel frosting topped with caramel and pistachios. It turned out a disaster. It tasted good, but looked awful. There were so many mistakes with that cake, and so many lessons learned. The main mistake was rushing through the process. I also ran out of sugar, so I wasn't able to make anymore frosting. The picture is not great. I will post a better picture and the recipe soon.

My disaster!

I also made chocolate chocolate chip cupcakes with a glaze icing topped with pistachios. The cupcake turned out delicious. The saltiness from the pistachios helped balance out the super sweetness of the glaze.

Yum, cupcakes. 

Hope you have a great week.

  1. Those cupcakes look delish and I don't even like pistachios or things that are glazed (for the most part)!!
    Did your grandmother read 50 Shades of Grey? I haven't and don't plan to!
