This morning I added another layer to my running gear – a vest! This isn’t actually meant to be a “running” vest per se, but I needed something else to keep me warm without making me overheat. It worked perfectly!
I did 5.85 miles in 52:37
Mile 1 – 9:02
Mile 2 – 8:30
Mile 3 -8:57
Mile 4 – 9:20
Mile 5 – 8:57
.85 – 9:09
My knee started hurting around mile 4 so I’m going to ice it and hope for the best. I really want to work on getting faster, and I’ve been researching training plans. Now I need my eye on the prize = my next race!
During my run I was dreaming of oatmeal so that’s what I made. They were Pumpkin oats to be exact. In the mix: 1/3c oats, soy milk, water, vanilla, stevia, cinnamon, chia seeds, salt. Topped with PB and PB *I added some brown sugar after the pic to sweeten it a bit more.
Last night I was so caught up in my anonymous questions I didn’t post dinner. I made Chickpea Casserole with these ingredients: three cups of chickpeas, cream of broccoli soup and broccoli. I mixed it all together, topped it with some crushed pita chips (didn’t have bread crumbs) and baked at 350 for about 30 minutes. Then, I added some cheese to the top and returned it to the oven until melted.
– Massage this afternoon! I’m so excited, it’s been too long
– Waiting for a very important package to arrive (been tracking FedEx like a hawk)
– Answering the rest of your questions
– Figuring out my race calendar (even though I totally don’t know where I’ll be in six months…)
See you in a little bit!
