Checking in!

Spring Break has officially started.

I just rolled out of bed.

That equals 12 hours of sleep last night.

My only plans today are to run and wash my hair.

I might be too busy to wash my hair though.

I would rather bake.

Hopefully, I don't run into a pole because my eyes are still super squinty and kind of glued shut from just waking up.

Bread with jam and a donut are my pre-running fuel of choice this morning.

I can't think of anything else to write because I am too busy plotting out my 12 miler today.

Come back in two hours for a fully awake, non obsessed with what run she is going to do, donut eating Janae

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is your WEDNESDAY workout?

-12 miles and I teach spin tonight with some new AWESOME music.

Do you ever have donuts for breakfast?

-Our neighbors brought them over last night and either I am schizo or they really are calling my name from the kitchen.

What is the longest amount of time that you have slept?

-I think my record is 14 hours after finals week my junior year.   I probably took a nap later on that day too.

You guys are too cute running together! Love it. I can't wait til we get to change the clocks and Mike and I can run together outside again and maybe drag along the pup!

My Wednesday workout is going to be 14 miles on the treadmill with iFit mapping out the trip too and from my office while Mike is at poker night!

Hope your run is awesome!

Super jealous you slept in!! Good luck on your 12 miler. No puking like last Wednesday! :)

Totally channeled you last night and watched 2 episodes of glee on my laptop. My husband thinks I'm crazy. He's probably right!!!

PS so excited for fro yo on Friday!

Love your blog! What new music are you using for spin? I'm always looking for new, upbeat tunes to motivate my workouts!

Spring break! Lucky! I work at a school but I don't get spring break off. I guess I should have been a teacher rather than a social worker!!

Workout tonight will be 6 miles. Switched my days around a bit this week, but I will still accomplish my goal!!

I haven't had donuts for breakfast in quite a while but that does sound really good!

I think when I was in high school I slept for around 14 hours once as well. I was also sick though.

I DON'T HAVE WORK TONIGHT SO I GET TO COME TO SPIN!!! yay it has been far too long since I have been to your class. Can't wait to catch up :) Have fun with your run!

Correction : watched 2 episodes of Glee while running on my treadmill. ;) janae-style!!!

Yay for teacher schedules! Mine is that the end of the month.... I...can...make...it!

I love donuts but I try not to eat them for fear of that yucky feeling. But I love em! Glazed, Maple, chocola-tat-tay, custard...I haven't met a donut I didn't like!

My fav? Nutella Donut... yes...nutella!

So your neighbors rock... I clearly need to get some new ones- none of mine have EVER brought me food!!?

Envy on the sleep. I have kids so I dont think I have gotten more than 5 hours in the last 7 years. Workout weights and cycling and a ton of stretching. I dont eat donuts but when I was pregnant I craved apple fritters from the donut store by my moms house. When she flew up to visit I begged her to bring me some and of course she forgot. Funny thing is my 3 year old is now obsessed with apple fritters.

i can sleep like NO ONE'S BUSINESS. i love those 12-hour sleep in days. don't get them much anymore, but they are heavenly.

as far as donuts go, i've definitely cut back. but one day about 2 months ago, maybe i had 8 krispy kremes in one day. MAYBE.

Hahaha wait the 14-hour sleep is the story of my LYFE right after finals!! Slash totally fine, my eyes are always glued shut after I wake up, slash running fuel is always best/yummiest/most nutritious when it consists of donuts. Yezzer! My workout today = most likely the elliptical and poss some weights since my upper body is SO sore from weights on sunday! Why am I so weak, I need to enlist a husband to keep my guns in shape!

i used to be able to sleep all day in college!! now i cant sleep past 9:30!

love spin class!

I did 5 miles on the treadmill and jillian michaels!
I still am SO amazed at how you run 12 miles or more sometimes and then teach spin too! you are superhuman!

I think when I was sick I was only up for like 4 hours one day!

enjoy spring break!

So I just found your blog the other day, and I have to tell you I LOVE it!! You absolutely crack me up :)

 
At March 9, 2011 at 10:10 AM , Blogger BigHappyFamily said...

What's a full night of sleep? I don't even remember...

I never eat donuts for breakfast. I occasionally (when my kids whine a whole bunch or have something to celebrate) get donuts mid morning after breakfast. This happens ~2x per year ... if they are lucky :)

Today's workout ... more not running. I think I will go the whole week not running with as stiff as my legs still feel. Tonight will be 2-3000 yrds in the pool.

It's your spring break!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so jealous!!!! Mine is not until the second week of April!!!! Enjoy it!

HAPPY SPRING BREAK!!!! Utah looks grogous right now and I am envious of your runnign time with the Billster. Spencer is traveling a ton now, so I'm lucky if he even sleeps in the same bed!

I sprinkled baby powder on my hair this a.m. to combat the greasiness!!

HAVE A FABULOUS DAY!!!

I have class this evening for three hours so I'm hoping to at least fit in a few miles but if not...I'll be doing core work at home. :)

I love donuts. I have to stay away from them because I can eat a whole box in one sitting easily. :)

 
At March 9, 2011 at 10:26 AM , OpenID fitchocoholic said...

Did some strength training today....
We don't get donuts here....so I'll only eat them in another 3 years.
Hope you have a great run!

yea for spring break! Wish I had that. boo! Wanna come to austin now? its 70F and sunny! I used love sprinkled donuts as a kid, anything with sprinkles really.
Have a great day doing what you LOVE!

Today is my nine mile run day,I have had donuts before for breakfast... Okay a lot of times before. The longest I have ever slept was 22 hours straight, but that was because I got sick from the water in Mexico and was bed ridden for days lol

 
At March 9, 2011 at 10:27 AM , Blogger Runners Fuel said...

I've been craving donutd lately and it seems like everyone is eating them. I MUST go buy them soon!!

I am on spring break this week as well!!

I've been sleeping in every morning. . . .until 6:30 a.m. I guess that's what you get when your body is used to getting up at 5 a.m.

I am running 5 miles today--I had a longer run yesterday--so today is a recovery day. Afterward I am going to go and get a free doughnut with a coupon I have!

 
At March 9, 2011 at 10:38 AM , Blogger Runeatrepeat said...

I need to get a few miles in, not sure how many.

Now I want a donut!

 
At March 9, 2011 at 10:38 AM , Blogger Jen said...

Yay for spring break! I'm glad you got some much needed sleep!
Donuts usually don't call my name, but I found these blueberry cake ones with blueberry glaze on top that are so good. I had one after my run Saturday as a reward. YUM!

 
At March 9, 2011 at 10:45 AM , Blogger Rose said...

What is your WEDNESDAY workout?

-I worked out with my trainer this morning. It was HARD.

Do you ever have donuts for breakfast?

-Not in a long time. I can't handle sweets for breakfast. Please don't defriend me!

What is the longest amount of time that you have slept?

-I don't even know. I think it was probably like 18 hours in college. I had been up for a few days, though.

I'm officially heading home for spring break tomorrow! All I can say is that it's going to be devoted to sleeping, eating, running, and (MKA)movie watching :) Sounds like a good plan to me!

 
At March 9, 2011 at 10:48 AM , Blogger Stefanie said...

Spring break for me is next week--ah, can't wait!!!

I've probably slept for a good 20 hours before! haha I love my sleep!

I am so jealous of your 12 hours of sleep!!! I am a sleeping monster, and will sleep as much as I can, whenever I can!!! (Which isn't nearly enough!!!)

 
At March 9, 2011 at 10:52 AM , Blogger Mamarunsbarefoot said...

I rode in my drainer today

No I don't eat donuts :)

I can't remember the last time I ever slept that long

 
At March 9, 2011 at 10:57 AM , Blogger Caitlin said...

Yay spring break! I had a great 5.25 mile run this morning and I WISH i had a donut available to fuel it! Have an amazing run and a great day off!!

 
At March 9, 2011 at 10:59 AM , Blogger my little celebration said...

I have donuts for breakfast when I'm having one of those "I don't care what humanity thinks of me, I'm staying in my pajamas and feeling pudgy and getting a sugar coma" kind of days. So ya, I probably make donuts my breakfast about once every few months :D.

 
At March 9, 2011 at 11:08 AM , Blogger Kara said...

12 hours of sleep? Wow, you sleep as much as my baby! :)

I love donuts, but not for breakfast. I prefer one as a dessert to my normal breakfast!

 
At March 9, 2011 at 11:09 AM , Anonymous Elizabeth said...

I could not be more jealous. Sigh. I was up at 5:30 to make 7 AM mass and then work. I think the sleeping in sounds decidedly more relaxing.

 
At March 9, 2011 at 11:21 AM , Blogger Missy said...

First of all, super jealous of Spring Break, my sister is a teacher too and I am so jealous of her summers off!
My workout tonight will be Bob Harper's Pure Burn Strength dvd and I'm really excited to try it out!
Sometimes I will have a donut if someone brings them into the office.
The longest I have slept I think is 10 maybe 11 hours, but typically it's a 8-9 hour night for me!

I have slept for a good 12-13 hours after a supershift at work. It's the best feeling in the world! Enjoy your day off, ya lucky duck!

- I dunno, I hurt myself

- I took a part time job at a Krispy Creme to pay for my wedding, I cant stand the smell of doughnuts now because of it

- Once I slept 20 hours because I was sick

 
At March 9, 2011 at 11:44 AM , Blogger Rene said...

I ran 3.5 miiles and caught the first 30 minutes of an athletic training class. Had to cut it short because I have school Mon/Wed.
I love donuts. My friend does a double digit donut run. If she runs more than 10 miles she rewards herself post run. Great idea.
I love sleeping in but that's because I stay up way too late. So I take naps instead. One more perk of the kids being n school.

 
At March 9, 2011 at 11:48 AM , OpenID aliruns said...

So glad you got to relax and sleep in! That is always the best thing about breaks. The longest sleep I ever got was probably 12 hours after a dance in high school so I literally slept all day afterwards. Yikes!

 
At March 9, 2011 at 11:50 AM , Blogger Kristin @NyceLife said...

You guys are so so sweet <3

I did a spin class and after I did 10 min. deep water running. So. so. boring.

My husband buys the kids love with donuts on an almost weekly basis. I try to shove them all down their throats before morning, but if there is one left, yeah, I have one. Who can resist a donut with coffee??

I think in college I likely slept a whole day once or twice. These days it's 6 if I am lucky...

 
At March 9, 2011 at 11:56 AM , Blogger Emily said...

things i miss about high school/college and why i wish i was a teacher: spring break.

today's workout was a 7 mile run through the zoo with the lovely blogger LAPT who is visiting DC for the weekend and hopefully a swim or spin after work.

chocolate donut holes are my favorite post-race food. i owe all of my race success to picturing them waiting for me at the finish line.

So jealous you get a Spring Break! The rest of us just keep working! I guess that's the benefit of being a teacher. Sign me up!! :)

 
At March 9, 2011 at 11:59 AM , Blogger Preston and Jamyn said...

P.S. Just an idea.... could you do a post on how to start training... for us beginners?? Or an example of what you did before your first race? :)

Not going to lie....SO jealous of your 12 hours! The longest I have slept as an "adult" is probably right around there, too. 10-12 sounds about right! Lately I've been getting 8 but it feels like only 3 or 4! EEK!

Your spring break started on a Wednesday? How interesting! :)

Have a great day lady!

I once slept 18 hours straight. This was during college. We drove to Las Vegas and partied for a few hours and drove back. I got home around 8AM. I went to bed and had the best night's (day's?) sleep of my life!

Happy Spring Break! I have a group run with lululemon tonight. :) That's my workout! And I slept for 11 hours recently when Billy was out of town. I was SO surprised when I woke up!

You are so lucky to be on spring break. I have a 4 day weekend coming up next month and I'm counting down the days. Workout today will be 4 mile run after work.

I try not to eat doughnuts, every once in a while I will get a craving and I'll have to have one. The last time was on Monday. They just opened a Krispy Kreme less than a mile from house (not good!) and I kept driving by it and wanting one so I finally stopped. It was yummy!

I've slept 20 hours before but I was also in the hospital with pnemonia. I think the longest I have slept on my own without being sick and on meds was 12 hours.

Your spring break starts on a Wednesday? Weird. My husabnd is a 5th grade teacher- we are during spring break week now. Love it! I want to be a high school health teacher.. maybe some day. I have a bachelors degree in health so I would just need to get my masters in teaching if i wanted to do it... I think it would be so fun!!

So jealous of you. 12 hours?! And that picture is so darn hilarious I may have to make a poster out of it. In a non-creepy way of course...! ;)

Wednesday workout was 800m repeats which kicked my trash:)

I am jealous of your spring break first of all! Second, I LOVE donuts!! A nice coconut donut in the AM is always good! Last, the workout for tonight is an easy 3miles and either Zumba or Jillian Micheals Ripped in 30:)

I am not a fan of doughnuts. But I would love toast and jam or crumpets and jam.
I did nearly 7 miles today after work- that was my wednesday workout :)
Enjoy spring break

My Wednesday workout is 4 miles speed work plus an upper body strength training class at the gym. (can't wait...must finish school work. :D)

Lucky you getting to sleep in. The last time I got to sleep in, it was the late breaking hour of 7:15 am. The dog won't let us go any longer than that.

As for donuts, no can do. My tummy doesn't like morning sugar.

Donuts for breakfast is one of my favorite childhood past times!
My record sleeping was 2 days...no joke! I woke up for a few minutes a couple of times, but that was it!

 
At March 9, 2011 at 2:50 PM , Blogger Laura said...

I don't remember the last time I slept more than 8 hours... my mind wakes me up because it wants to be busy. I am so envious of you! Baking and running sounds like the best day ever!!

 
At March 9, 2011 at 2:58 PM , OpenID runaroundaroo said...

I think I'm going to come to UT just for some spin classes...the instructors at the Y here in town need some new/better music. Sometimes their music choice can kill my entire workout!

I love the idea of donuts but they usually really hurt my teeth. Something about being too sweet...but I can eat a whole bag of Sour Patch Kids or Skittles without any tooth pain...? I don't get it. But Skittles make me happy so I'm okay with it!

 
At March 9, 2011 at 3:15 PM , Blogger Katy said...

The longest I've ever slept would probably be 24 hours.. Haha. The military can make you tired...

I had a cinnamon donut the other day. I probably shouldn't have, but I had slept through 2 meals, and I was really hungry, so I felt like I needed the extra calories. Haha. (I also had a huge meal to go along with that donut. My belly was happy.)

 
At March 9, 2011 at 3:28 PM , OpenID inhaleexhalerepeat said...

The longest I've slept was 14 hours. It was glorious.

I loved chocolate glazed donuts (the chocolate cake ones with clear glaze) but I rarely have them because that much sugar in the morning makes me moody. They are nice treats though!

 
At March 9, 2011 at 4:20 PM , OpenID runningonwords said...

Wednesday is my rest day. I'm jealous of your spring break! I think the longest I've ever slept was 16 hours, I think. When I was a teenager, I would routinely sleep 14-16 hours after a migraine.

 
At March 9, 2011 at 4:40 PM , Blogger Nicole said...

Ive probably slept 14-16 hours once....... :)

 
At March 9, 2011 at 8:16 PM , Blogger RunningOnCoffee said...

Who took your picture? I also like how it looks like you are missing part of your right arm :)

Wednesday Workout: 1 hour spinning

Donuts for Breakfast: rarely. sometimes on car trips when we stop at Dunkin Dunuts though. We do have pastries from a bakery that is about a 30 second walk from our apartment though...

Sleep: I actually don't really like sleeping in. I feel groggy when I wake up after sleeping too long (more than ~8 hours). I slept for 12 hours consecutively when I was sick around New Year's this year though...
