…is the best feeling ever!!!
I got my run in this morning! I completely zoned in and rocked out to my music…and the time flew by. I guess the little break I took from running over the last few days really helped my body recover properly because my legs felt light and full of energy the entire time!! I didn’t want to stop! This run made me feel much more relaxed and confident about my race this Saturday.
Before my run, I had this lovely:
A Fitnessista B-fast cookie!
This mixture included:
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 scoop all natural protein powder
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice
- 1/8-1/4 cup skim milk
mix together and then top with:
- 1 tbsp natural almond butter
- 1 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
After my run, I decided to to update my playlist on my Ipod for my race. Thanks to Jenn, I had some pretty good songs to put on there! Check out her blog for her new playlist!
Then came lunch: a sandwich made with 1 whole wheat hamburger bun, turkey, swiss cheese, and turkey pepperoni.
and a Green Monster shake!
This is what I added into my Magic Bullet:
- 2 huge handfuls of fresh baby spinach leaves
- 1 cup soy milk
- a few pieces of frozen strawberries and bananas
- 1 tbsp flax
After lunch, I worked on some homework and then got ready to go to work. But before I left, I had some snacks. Running makes me hungry!
1/2 banana with chunky Barney Butter
Stonyfield’s plain yogurt with 1 crumbled homemade granola bar. I will have to post my granola bar recipe sometime..I love it!
Another colorful plate filled with fruits and veggies, a lean hamburger, and some trail mix.
And now I am going to go relax with the family and watch The Office.
Have a wonderful night, all! :D
