Yesterday morning was my last (pseudo) long run before the marathon this coming Saturday! eek!
I started my morning by having an English muffin for breakfast.
1/2 – Laughing Cow Cheese + jam
1/2 – peanut butter and banana slices
I kept waiting around for Craig to get up so we could go running. (He rode his bike with me.) When he finally got up, I was more than ready, but he likes to do a few things in the morning (as do I): check e-mail, read a few things on line, get changed, eat breakfast, etc.
He was taking forever, so I gave him the angry fist and bared my teeth at him because it had now been almost 3.5 hours since I ate breakfast and I was going to bonk again. (I wasn’t really mad at him. . . . only slightly. )
As to be expected, I bonked again on my run.
It was a tough run, I was feeling really slow and low on energy.
Talking to Craig at least took my mind off the fact I didn’t feel very good, and frankly, I didn’t mind that I wasn’t feeling up to par because:
a.) I was running! (Any time I am able to run is a good time!)
b.) The sun was shining, the pavement was dry, and there wasn’t snow on the ground. (I seriously live in fear of winter all summer long.)
c.) I was enjoying my time with Craig. We always have good conversations on my runs.
We covered 8 miles in 66 minutes.
After we got back from the run, I made myself a Green Monster Protein Smoothie because I knew I wouldn’t be getting many greens the rest of the day due to two parties yesterday afternoon: a college graduation party and a wedding.
We then watched our new favorite show: House Hunters on Hulu! Yeah for cable shows without paying for cable!!
After showering and getting ready, we ran a few errands: one of them to Costco where we probably set a record for the least amount of money spent in a single transaction.
bananas + dryer sheets (because they had a coupon!)
The rest of the afternoon was spent at a college graduation party and then yesterday evening we went to a wedding. Both were lots of fun but no pictures were taken.
I don’t have many plans for today, so we shall see what the day brings!
