Expired snacks, I wanted to quit, and my new strategy.

So when I woke up yesterday, I felt terrible. My stomach was all messed up (maybe it was the Starbucks and Easter candy at 9 pm), and I just felt blah. I decided a nice healthy breakfast would fix everything, so I raided my stash at work and found this bar.

I’m glad I noticed the “best by date” of June 2013 before I ate it. Don’t worry, I did end up finding a non-expired Clif bar and did not go hungry. :-)

Wednesday has been “track day” for a while now, so of course it was chilly and very windy for our workout. This workout was a killer and I wanted to quit so many times.

8 x 800m in 3:17 with a 1:30 RI (rest interval) between sets. We ended up running each 800m in about 3:14-3:15 and I really had to channel my inner Shalane and remember that Bart Yasso (Yasso 800s) is one of my BFFs. :-)

After the workout, I refueled with a very healthy lunch and some healthy fat from my guacamole dressing.

Dinner was a chicken salad sandwich (2 separate sandwiches put together) and fruit with the best company around…AB and my parents. :-)

Since I’m trying to cut back on my ice cream consumption, I used one of Annabelle’s bowls AND the ice cream was “light”. Even though the bowl doesn’t look that small in the picture, it’s much smaller than my usual mixing bowl.

What’s your go to breakfast right now?

Would you rather run in rain, snow, or wind?

Last dessert you ate?

  1. I am glad the easter candy is finally gone at my house! Hope your tummy is feeling better! I’m not really a desert person but I did finish up a box of Ferrero Roche chocolates last night!

  2. That workout sounds like a killer, and 1:30 rest is so little, how did you even manage that, wow!
    I made granola bars at home and that’s my usual breakfast, I run in early in the morning, so I stick to the same breakfast, since I know it doesn’t mess with my stomach. If I’m out of homemade bars then a Clif bar is the common replacement.

  3. I am a big baby with track workouts and pretty much avoid them entirely! What an awesome workout for you though :)
