Why hello sweet bloggies =) Happy Sunday! It's been a relaxing weekend in the RFTH household, including a refreshing workout in my new shoes. Which fit very very nicely! I didn't have any arch pain, which is incredible for a shoe as light as this one. Here's the link if you want to purchase a pair for yourself- I highly recommend them for cross-training and racing. Plus they come in lots of fun colors!

Here's my workout:

5 mins treadmill- mini ladder workout
1 min- 9 minute mile
1 min- 8 minute mile
1 min- 7 minute mile
1 min- 8 minute mile
1 min- 9 minute mile
30 mins elliptical
Crossramp level 10
Resistance level 6

Want a recipe? Really, you do? Well, if you insist... =)

Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies:
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chunks (I used 60% cacao)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degress. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2. Cream butter, sugar, and egg in a large bowl. Add salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and flour. Stir, then add oats and chocolate.

3. Scoop the dough into 2-inch-wide balls on the cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes and cool on a wire rack.
