Ouch! Getting out of bed hurt. But actually not as bad as I thought it would!! My foot is doing well (especially after a morning ice!) and my legs are pretty good. Just some tightness in a few specific spots (the top of my quads). Emily is going to bring her foam roller to brunch! Considering that was my first long run with mega hills, I think I’m in pretty good shape. Today will be 100% rest, and perhaps even tomorrow will be super light. This is definitely one of those times that I’m taking a rest day no question. I need it to repair!
Today we’re meeting some of our friends for BRUNCH!! Fun!
I don’t know how to prepare for brunch though!? I woke up super hungry – could have eaten a huge breakfast. But I didn’t want to spoil my appetite for our 11AM date. Or eat too many breakfasty foods so that I would want lunchy foods at 11.

- 1/3 cup cottage cheese
- 1 tbsp flax
- 1 tbsp Naturally Nutty Cinnamon Cherry PB (mmm!!!)
- 2 KERF-sized handfuls of ice

This granola has a great texture – very crunchy.

Served with a cuppa Spring Blend!
Not even 2 hours later….I’m feeling a bit empty. A glass of liquid and some granola are not enough to fill my stomach! Breakfast should be eaten like a king 🙂 I don’t know how people can go without breakfast. You know those studies that show that people who eat breakfast eat less throughout the rest of the day? I totally believe it. Whenever I have a smaller breakfast I am so snacky! And never get full. Eat your breakfast! Today I’m having two
