The Long Run.
Every Saturday, or most at least, my friend Dani and I meet at 8AM for a long run. I’m training for a half marathon in late April and I’m building up my distance base. I must say, since starting CrossFit, my legs don’t feel tired nearly as much as I expected them to. I can tell I’m getting stronger and my endurance is getting even better than it already was. I can run faster without really feeling it at all. Basically, thank you CrossFit for improving my running!
I chowed down a banana with almond butter to be sure I had enough fuel for our 9 miler and had some black coffee to get the engines started We met at Up and Running in Centerville to head out with the run group. Dani and I usually run together because we are about the same pace. We found this adorable park filled with geese and decided to take a loop through it as well. Photo op!
When we got back from the run, I became freezing! It was 31 degrees outside, so I guess I had a reason for being cold. I raced home to stretch by the fire and wait for the wonderful hubby to whip up something delicious for breakfast! What was on the menu?
Scrambled eggs with leftover flank steak and bell peppers and topped with avocado. This kept me full for hours! As a treat, a spiced up coconut water beverage.
Hubby juiced a lime and a cucumber and mixed them with coconut water. AMAZING! And so refreshing! I’m going to have him do a post on juicing in the next week or so because he has some great combos!
This guy was a cutie patootie as well!
We love his eyebrows Talk about the classic sad puppy face!
Love you Beaubie!
We spent the rest of the afternoon running errands. For a snack??
So good…too much sugar though (from dates, not artificial)!
The Power Hummus Bowl off of Panera’s Hidden Menu! Very good
Hubby and I spent most of lunch playing each other in Quizboard. Fun trivia!
Later, I went to Girl’s Night with the ladies from Centerville Crossfit! These girls are SOOOO fun and know how to throw a party in style!
Cutest cupcakes Those are pink fondant kettlebells on top!
What a fun day! I was pooped at the end of it though And rightly so!
