Sweet Sixteen Miles

Happy Saturday! I’m thinking about officially making Friday’s pizza night. Sadly, this is the best idea I’ve had in years. But the “thin crust” frozen pizza I bought was a scam. Don’t try to fool this Mexican – I know a tortilla when I see it!  I stole a piece of Ben’s “real pizza” for carb-age.IMG 7137 800x600 thumb Sweet Sixteen Miles

More specifically, Friday should be Pizza and Wine night wlEmoticon winkingsmile Sweet Sixteen MilesIMG 7140 600x800 thumb Sweet Sixteen Miles

This morning I woke up and did my pre-run rituals – bathroom, change, iced coffee, PB&J toast, bathroom again…

I had 16 miles on the agenda with the last 3 at Marathon Goal Pace. Hey, why do I have a MGP with no marathon on the schedule. Because I’m considering one and want to decide after next weekend’s long run.

I ran to my favorite spot and Ben picked me up 16 miles later. He rocks.

16 Miles – Average Pace 8:39

My splits weren’t very even but that’s partially because the route.IMG 7145 800x600 thumb Sweet Sixteen Miles

When I got home I had a quick bowl of cereal. Yes, that would be the last of the Kashi Crisp. It lasted all of 3 days…IMG 7144 800x600 thumb Sweet Sixteen Miles

Then, I hit up Whole Foods on the way to my mom’s. I spotted this new Larabar find – uber. I didn’t get one because I’m a chocolate girl and these were all fruit.IMG 7146 800x600 thumb Sweet Sixteen Miles

And my post-run ritual… Whole Foods Salad Bar. A little bit of everything and a new bigger can of Stevia. I tried the Ginger Root-beer because my stomach has been randomly hurting and I’m hoping the ginger would help.IMG 7152 800x600 thumb Sweet Sixteen Miles

I really wanted quinoa and there wasn’t a good quinoa salad today. Oh well, guess I have to go back…

On a bed of kale (why don’t I buy kale anymore?!)… vegan ratatouille, grilled veggie couscous, baked ziti, old fashioned potato salad, chicken masala, tabouli…IMG 7153 800x600 thumb Sweet Sixteen Miles

Now I’m blogging from my Nina’s car enroute to my cousin’s baby shower. She lives in B.F.E, California so we’re carpooling.

See ya later!

    I went to the Veggie Grill in Irvine for the first time today, partly because of your post awhile back (and because my husband likes it). Not too bad! We’re going vegetarian for lent :)

    MONICA-
    we must be buying the same type of cereal.
    some sort of defect where it only lasts for 2-3 days at a time…
    nothing to do with only having “ONE BOWL” aka ONE BUCKET.
    solution:
    bigger boxes…

    Why’re you running your long runs at race pace, chica? You should follow a legit training plan and you’ll perform lots better in races.

    I would have stolen Ben’s pizza too. Thin-crust “pizza” is not pizza. My husband and I affectionately call it “cracker pizza” because it’s like you’re eating a cracker with toppings. No thanks!

    The California Pizza Kitchen’s Margerite (sp) frozen pizza is super good and tastes fresh. You should try that one too.
