A (sort of) tempo run.

I woke up feeling a little blah again this morning. My stomach felt weird and like it hadn’t digested anything from the night before. Anybody feel like that before? Luckily I had a 1 1/2 hour commute to try and feel better and then I enjoyed some time sitting in my car hoping the rain would stop long enough for me to walk into work.

I ate a Lemon Zest Luna Bar and worked until it was time for lunch a run. I didn’t feel great going into it, but the sun was shining and it was so warm! So warm = about 40-45 degrees. Since we were pounded with snow last week, many of the sidewalks were still snow/ice/slush covered and we had to take those spots very easy.

Mile 1 and 2 included some snowy spots and we picked up the tempo for mile 3 and 4. Mile 5 was a mix of good and bad running conditions and then we pushed it at the end once we got to a clear sidewalk. Total 5.75 miles and I was in just my running skirt, tank top, and pro compression socks at the end. It felt sooo good to feel warm sunshine!

Tonight has been very low key…I made whole grain chocolate chip pancakes and egg whites with cheese for dinner and did some Olympics watching. 🙂


Great picture I know…

Have you been watching the Olympics? Favorite event?

Do you like chocolate chips in your pancakes? You know my thoughts on this. 🙂


  1. Nice run! I’m a little jealous of that 6:44 mile. 🙂
    I haven’t watched one Olympic event… winter sports are not my thing. Still I feel kind of out of the world for not watching.
    Chocolate chips of course! Semisweet.

  2. I love chocolate chip pancakes! Your pancakes look so good!

  3. I could never get into the Lemon Zest Luna Bar flavor. Caramel Brownie is by far my favorite – probably because it tastes like a candy bar. 😉
