Good morning. Happy Thanksgiving week!
So much to sayâ€¦
First things first: I had an excellent weekend in terms of my half marathon training. I did find myself running yesterday at sunset in a desperate attempt to squeeze in one last workout before the week was up!
I broke my personal #1 rule of training and went on a run three days in a row â€“ whoops (I try to avoid back to back runs). My work week was so busy that all my workouts got relegated to the weekend. I missed one of my four runs, but Iâ€™ll take a 14.5 mile week. Iâ€™ve got to say â€“ Iâ€™m sore and today is definitely is a rest day.
A little trick â€“ instead of taping your entire training plan to the fridge, just do two or three weeks at a time. It makes it seem less intimidatingâ€¦ You can keep the complete pages on the fridge, too, so you donâ€™t forget how far youâ€™ve come.
Breakfast was a bowl of savory oats.
Stir-fried onions, carrots, broccoli
Sunny side up egg
Lots of people have asked me how I make such â€˜prettyâ€™ eggs. Hereâ€™s my tutorial for a pretty omelet. And I must confess that my hard-boiled eggs are so nice because I buy them pre-cooked.
But to make a pretty sunny-side up egg, you only need to know three things: one, the pan must be very hot. Two, a non-stick pan with a lot of cooking spray is key. Three, crack the egg very close to the pan â€“ not from high up. And four, donâ€™t touch the egg until itâ€™s done cooking.

Oh, much better.
