Today I did 8.77 miles very slow. Ugh, I don’t know what’s up with my pace lately 🙁 I was shooting for between 8 and 10 miles depending on how I felt. My knee started hurting around mile 4 and went away for a bit, then came back. I’m going to ice it in a bit.
I guess I’m used to running super long training runs on Saturday because I fueled before and after the run like it was a 20 miler. I usually eat pretty indulgently on Saturdays because it’s my long run day – I better reign that in since I’m not at the height of training any more!
Pre-run: Before I left I had an honest foods bar and a handful of cereal (no pic).
Breakfast: When I got back I kinda had to eat the rest of this cantaloupe because it’s going to go bad soon. I filled it with a small scoop of cottage cheese (it was all I had left) and some trail mix.
I had cereal on the side too 🙂 Yeah, this wasn’t necessary since I was already getting full, but again I was eating like I ran 20 miles today.
Ben and I are going to explore Maryland today. I packed lunches – a hummus and cheese sammie for me and egg salad for him.
I’m also bringing pita chips, veggie crisps and almonds.
I’ve already eaten half of this SB bar. I used to eat this all the time and forgot about them. I’m glad they caught my eye (and were on sale) at Target.Happy Saturday!!! See you later…
