After Caitlin asked about “What is a long run?” it got me thinking. I have always thought of runs in terms of distance, but over time my running has gotten a little faster (don’t get all crazy, not much) so I am running the same distance, but less time. I used to run 6 miles on my treadmill 5 days a week. I did 10 minute miles so it took me one hour.
Today I decided to run out 30 minutes and back 3o for a total of 1 hour – and I would just see how far that got me. I ran 6.7 miles – next time I’ll do 7 🙂 I need a new goal!
Breakfast was a new creation…
Chocolate PB Overnight Oats
Last night I put 1/2c oats, 1/2c yogurt, 1/2c soymilk, banana, cinnamon, 1 tsp sugar and 1 heaping tsp of unsweetened cocoa in a tupperware.
This morning I added PB & cereal on top. It was really good, but didn’t change my life. I know this is sac-religious to say, but I think chocolate is kinda weird for breakfast (unless it’s a chocolate protein powder smoothie). Doesn’t it look kinda gross? It was good – I promise!
Question: Do you measure your workouts by distance or time???
