This afternoon I went for a nice long run—just about 5 miles actually! Sunday will always be my “long run” day because I requested to have most Sundays (except for maybe once a month or something when they need me) off from work. I haven’t “officially” started my half-marathon training but I will be in about three weeks so I want to be ready! The run was good….my shin, though uncomfortable, was better than my last run so that’s good at least! I also burned a ton of calories so maybe that’s why I have been so starving all day—my body has been preparing itself! 🙂 After running and sat and dangled my legs in the cool pool water for about 15 minutes and it felt soooo gooooood. Tomorrow I’ll put another tiger balm patch on and hope for the best!
Before my run I snacked on a rather thick slice of pumpkin bread with almond butter:
And when I got back it was around dinner time and I was craaaaving pizza so I used my other pizza crust that I got last week and made my own personal cheese pizza with part skim mozzarella and a sprinkle of goat cheese. Betty also made me a FAB spinach salad with crispy bacon, red onion and dried cranberries!
I also had a tiny glass of red wine with dinner—Beaujolais, my favorite!
And had this delicious rice krispie bar for dessert:
So tomorrow is back at the grind! I’ve got lunch packed, fresh sheets on my bed, clean uniforms and a new thermometer for my chef coat pocket. I’m ready to roll! haha 🙂
Have a wonderful evening and morning tomorrow guys! I’ll report back with more goodies in the afternoon! 🙂
