Run Baby Run

Happy Tuesday yall!

I slept in till 7 this morning and it was absolutely glorious. Amazing. I felt so great when I woke up! I had a little snack before hitting the road for a run:


That’s a kashi blueberry go lean waffle with pb. Yummy.

I ran for 40 minutes with very sore shins from my 5 miler on Sunday. Bah. I tried not to focus on it though since the morning was so beautiful. It was in the 70s, breezy and the sun was just coming up. Wonderful!

When I got back I made some breakie: a toasted Ezekiel english muffin with preserves & almond butter, a greek yogurt and a fruit bowl with freshly cut melon and raspberries.


I’m off to take a shower, do laundry and run errands—-see you for lunch!

    Those Ezekiel english muffins are my new obsession. So good!

    Great job on the run! So are you having shin splints? I used to get those- especially when running downhill. No fun 🙁 The only thing that helped me was LOTS of ice. Good luck!

    I have been looking for ezekiel english muffins for several weeks now, and cannot seem to find them. Any suggestions of where I could find them? Does Whole Foods carry them?
    I really enjoy reading your blog and seeing all of your delicious creations. Very impressive!!

    Do you ice your shins right after you run? I know it’s a chore, but it really helps both the immediate pain and the healing. An athletic trainer taught me a good method that I posted about the other day:

    I have to ice a lot. It sucks, but really, really helps.

    And that breakfast is possibly my favorite meal ever (if there was a sliced banana on top of the muffin)

    I need to be better about the whole ice thing!!!

    Hi! I’m Jenn, and I love love your blog! I’ve been reading for awhile now, and thought I’d give a shoutout and welcome you to visit my blog…I noticed your title..were you referencing “We the Kings” by any chance? Their song “Check, Yes Juliet”…I always listen to when I run :-]

    Do you stretch your calf muscles before/during/after your run? Shin splints are commonly caused by tightness in the gastroc/soleus complex, which your anterior tibialis has to fight against to pick up your foot. Just a thought. Maybe change your shoes or dare I say it…stop running for a while. By the way, I love your website! A friend told me about it last week and i’ve been tuning in every day. Keep doing what you’re doing.
