thursday- 10 miles outside
You guyyyss! I did it! Thank you for the kind comments and encouragement. I dropped J off at preschool, then headed out to a nearby trail. I just kept telling myself to keep it slow and steady. It was about 40* and it felt perfect. I wore layers and my ear warmer, but the temp was great. It was just me and my tunes and my thoughts. If I could describe the run with one work, it would be peaceful.
Before my run I ate a bowl of cereal one hour before, then half a grab n go applesauce right before(it worked great)! As soon as I was finished with the run, I was hungry so I ate the Kind bar I had in the car with me, the rest of the apple sauce and drank a lot of water. When I got home, I had peanut butter and a banana. I don’t usually want a huge meal after a long run, but I do need something so I always try and find something with protein in it. Usually I smoothie with greek yogurt or something with peanut butter.
I stretched, showered, and pretty much lay around with J the rest of the day.
Once J was napping, I got started on dinner. I don’t know what it is, but winter always makes me want to try new recipes(maybe because it’s pitch black by 5pm) and bake. I tried 2 Pinterest recipes, one for basil garlic rolls and the other for cauliflower chowder. The dough took me 2 tries=( Flour is so crucial when you want a nice fluffy roll and I swear every recipe always calls for too much. But the second batch was just right.
The soup was really good and full of veggies. J even liked it! I love soup leftovers because then I just eat it for lunch.
