Peanut Butter Cookie Dough & Running, Too

The other night, I was going to make cookie bars, but since I like the dough so much, before adding the egg, I decided to just eat the dough. Yum!

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Recipe:

Melt 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup peanut butter (I used HEB store brand, this is not a special peanut butter - just a personal note) in a pot. Remove from the heat; add 3/4 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup flour. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. I sprinkled mine with uncooked oats to make it taste even better.

Recent Workouts: 
Friday- Strength/weight training.
Thursday- 15 miles on one Gu gel (mi.8), 2 S-caps, 4 dried apricots. I was tired in the second half (probably because I ran fast yesterday and was a little low on fuel today) and bribed myself with the reward of eating cookie dough as soon as I finished. Although I didn't actually run into the house and grab the cookie dough, this was definitely a cookie dough eating day. Time: about 2 1/2 hours.
Wednesday- 7 miles with some speed. Strength/weight training.
Tuesday- 6 easy miles. Ran with a friend at the park for a bit who told me about a good place to train on hills nearby.
Monday- 7 miles: some trails, some treadmill hills. Strength/weight training.
Saturday- 5 easy miles. Strength/weight training.
This week- 40 miles run & 4 strength/weight training sessions

I hope you have a great day!


  1. The cookie dough looks and sounds delicious - yummy! I think I'd eat it raw, too :).

  2. Nice week! My week was an adventurous one w/ travel, but not so successful in my running miles. Glad to be home to get back into some routine again. Heading out for 15 as part of my crazy re-taper this weekend :)
