When Cold, Eat Ice Cream

Firstly I just want to thank you all SO MUCH for the responses I got to yesterday’s post! Although I haven’t yet had a chance to respond to all the comments, emails, etc., I have read them all and will respond to them all as soon as I can! Words can’t describe how much it means, to me, so thank you <3
It has been FREEZING here in London-town today! Ok, when I say freezing I am just exaggerating as usual, but it HAS been very cold, and in my defence I really feel the cold… I think it is even colder in my house than outside though, because the heating is broken. Great. So I have been living in leggings and warm socks.
I’m pretty sure that is a serious fashion faux-pas. But hey, you can’t go wrong with those socks
The only thing that got me out of my warm, cosy bed into the deep freeze that was my room was knowing that my current favourite breakfast was just ten minutes away…
Pumpkin Bread in a Bowl, topped with crunchy PB and warmed up in the microwave. If you make this, use sultana bran cereal and thank me later
I have been all about the warm foods now! Bye bye salads, hello soup and pizza tortillas…
My current favourite snack!
And nothing beats warm, freshly baked muffins
These are Nicky’s Dark Chocolate Pudding Peanut Flour muffins. I am in love. With both her AND the muffins
For my running workout in the evening, I knew it was finally time to put away the tempo shorts. Yes, I did shed a few tears. I tried running in them on Tuesday but my legs went completely numb for the entire workout…so running tights it was today!
Looking cool as always I took off my scarf and hoody to run, and I was still FREEZING! I guess that spurred me on to go faster…
4 miles of approx 800m-1000m intervals+jog recoveries, and 2 miles warm-up and cool-down. I hit that sub-5 pace interval on the last repeat- I didn’t think I’d be able to do it but I pushed and focused and did it!! I got given chocolate at the end by the coach for being the most improved wahoo!
Well scrap what I said about eating only warm foods, because ice cream can and should be eaten all year round.
One serving wasn’t great recovery food…only 0.2g protein and not very carby, so I took care of that by having about a thousand servings. Right there is why I should totally become a sports nutritionist
Do you prefer hot weather or cold weather? I am a hot weather person all the way. Although I run better when it’s cold…probably because my body is trying to run to Florida or something.
What are your ultimate cold weather foods? Hot oatmeal and freshly baked muffins. Ok, so I have those all year round anyway!
What job are you good at, or what job WOULD you be good at? I would be the best peanut butter taster in the world.
Have a great day friends! <3
