A Race, A Recipe, A Run

It is hard to believe that today is already Friday!  This week has been jammed pack full of things for us this week and it has totally flown by!  It still has been a fun week for us even while we were running and doing 10 things in one day.

I did my very first virtual 5K, Once Upon a Time, on 12-12-12!  I ended up alternating between running for 4 minutes and walking for 1 minute for the whole 5K.  I was going to do the run for 3 walk for 2, but I was feeling good with the 4 minute run so I stuck with it.  I wanted to stick with what I knew would work, and I had fun with it.  Sadly I was nowhere near my PR, but I’m getting back into the swing of running again, and I want to enjoy it.

I cannot wait to get my medal in the mail!  Don’t they look sweet?

On to that crock pot brisket recipe we had the first night of Hanukkah…Then a treadmill workout to help you burn off the brisketSmile  I must apologise for the picture of the brisket.  My family dug in before I could get a better pic!

I do have a little note to make when it comes to you choosing a barbeque sauce.  Please look at the ingredients in your barbeque sauce before you buy it.  A ton of barbeque sauces out there have corn syrup and it’s many variations in it.  You all know how bad corn syrup is for you, so please stay away from any sauces that contain it.  Thank you!

Easy Crock Pot/Slow Cooker Barbeque Brisket

Easy Barbeque Crock Pot Brisket

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 – 3 1/2 lb brisket (basically as big a one as you can fit in your crock pot)
  • 1 3/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Directions

Combine all of the ingredients together.  Pour some of the bbq mixture in the bottom of an airtight container that is big enough to hold your brisket.  Place the brisket into the airtight container on top of some of the sauce.  Then, coat the brisket with the remaining sauce, and refrigerate overnight.  The next morning, place your brisket and sauce fat side down into your crock pot.  Cook on low for 9-10 hours.  Enjoy!

Now on to that treadmill run!!  Remember to stretch afterwards!!

    Congrats on the virtual 5k! I don’t eat a lot of meat, but my husband would LOVE that recipe. We avoid hfcs, too… it’s very hard to find bbq sauce without it.
