Popeye used to down spinach for fuel.
I chomp down dates:
When 11:00 rolled around Matt came a’tappin’ my shoulder for our run. I didn’t want to go. I did not have the energy and I was cold. Outside was colder! And cloudy. And we couldn’t decide on a route. All of our neighborhood routes have gotten boring.
I decided to pop a date for energy and BAM – we knocked out 6.5 miles on a new countryside route!! I swear it was all in the date that got me going! My miles weren’t easy or fast, but they were solid. That’s the farthest I’ve run since the fall. We finished the 10K in 58 minutes – 7 whole minutes slower than my fall race pace. But cold is cold.
Once home and showered, it was time for more fuel
Spinach salad with bleu cheese, honey, olive oil and toasted buckwheat crunchies
A pumpkin yogurt parfait, with more crunchies and some coconut
And an apple with Spazzy Squirrel [the dessert!]
We went through yet another keg of sparkling water – freshly made today!
This lunch was surprisingly SUPER filling! I almost didn’t finish it all. But then the chocolate peanut butter tempted me 😉
I have 2 hours to focus on work, and then we’re headed out for a fun event and meeting someone famous!!!
