I ran the 5km with my usual 10/1 run/walk combination and finished in 34:20. That is a fast 5km for me right now. I know some people would be horrified if it took them that long to finish a 5km run... but I am quite happy with anything under 35 minutes these days. And now that I have been running 5km consistently for the past couple of months, I think I am read to start increasing my distance again, s-l-o-w-l-y.
So that one’s in the books and now I can share some highlights of the rest of my week…
I have been reading Sue Grafton’s latest novel in her Kinsey Millhone series, W is for Wasted. I rarely read novels anymore but do like this particular author and was not disappointed with her latest work. It is a fun series and I will be sorry to see her come to Z.
I got a shipment of PB2 in the mail on Friday, after ordering it Thursday! That was amazing service and I am thrilled. That was just a bonus to it being a really good price. This stuff is ridiculously expensive in Canada so I stock up when I find it on sale. I love the chocolate flavor, too. And I heard that today is National Peanut Butter day so I had best enjoy some of it.
A couple of new finds at Costco this past week… one is a Greek yogurt and guacamole mixture. This is delicious and really handy. I can just pop one open and use it as a snack or sandwich filling or even as a sauce on top of my beloved zoodles. Just perfect for when I have no fresh avocado on hand… and only 70 calories.
The other thing I found is this hummus. Now I haven’t eaten beans since I first did a Whole 30 (paleo) challenge more than a year ago. But I have been looking for more non-meat protein again and this fits that bill very nicely. Again, very handy and very tasty!
The Captain had a nice little score this week… he won a couple of $100 gift cards… one to Milestones Restaurant (which is on the waterfront here) and the other for Danier Leather. They have beautiful clothing and bags so I hope he finds something he really likes for himself there.
Oops... there goes the oven timer... The boiled raisin cookies I am baking for The Captain are done.
What are you up to this week?
What is your favorite kind of cookie?
