This is my happy face before my run this morning. I was determined to make this run good.
After 2 bad long runs I have been really discouraged so I took a look at my training plan, fitness level, fuel, rest and pride and decided I needed to change some things up. I cut back on my mileage after coming to terms with the fact that I wasn’t at the fitness level I thought when I created the plan.
But, I was optimistic that this would be a good run. And it was!
12 miles in 1:49:03
This is right in line with my goal time! Yes!
Once I got back I made a huge Smoothie in a Bowl = SIAB (acronym courtesy of Kath) topped with cereal. This is great because you get a smoothie and cereal for breakfast
Then, I made Ben breakfast and ended up eating a piece of toast and some eggs. I completely wasn’t hungry for this after my huge smoothie so I felt like crap afterwards. Boo. Need to listen to my hunger!
Oh, before I left I had some bread with PB This the the Fiber One Cinnamon Raisin Bread. It’s super processed and has a ton of ingredients (it was the cheapest semi-healthy option and I was desperate at the time). But, I have to admit that it’s really good. It takes like Hawaiian Bread when you eat it plain.
My Saturday eats are usually random…I had some grapes, a chocolate chip cookie, a Bagel Bite from Costco samples and some chips. I think we’re going to see a movie and have dinner. Date Night!
Oh, and I stole this cat. Well, I was writing TY cards in the front room when I glanced out the screen door and saw a cat on our patio. I immediately told Ben “We have a cat!” He told me she is the neighbor next door’s cat and I told him, “She’s mine now!” Ha. But, alas Stevie (I don’t know his/her name) went home. She’ll be back.
