My church meeting went really late last night. 28 out of 30 days a month, we are asleep by 9pm. So when I’m up late, I don’t sleep as well. I didn’t fall asleep till 11:30. I wanted to get going by 5am, because I had 9 miles to run. Eliece and I are following, “Galloway’s Book on Running” to get ready for a half marathon.
I was up by 5am, but so was TJ! That always throws a wrinkle in things. So I was only able to do part of my run outside and had to finish on the treadmill. I don’t’ like exercising after my kids are awake, so I felt like I ran pretty fast.. for me. 9 miles, 1 hr 44 minutes.
I listened to Compassionate Cooks new podcast, “Reading food Labels” which was AWESOME. Then I listened to Chemistry, Which was NOT AWESOME.
Here was my running fuel:
The banana, pre-run. The Kid Clif bar and gatorade, during the run. I feel GREAT! 9 seemed so easy after we’ve been doing 12.
After a run, I get the chills. So I wanted some warm oatmeal. I was going for a strawberry cream flavor and totally got it.
- Instant oats,
- soy milk
- agave nectar.
Time to get going for the day. Looks like it might finally be sunny! I feel a hike in our schedule… (and a little chemistry, and grocery shopping).
