Brinner, fro yo, and an early wake up call.

By the time I got home last night, Annabelle was asleep and my parents had already eaten dinner. Therefore, I just cooked a quick and easy egg sandwich = brinner (breakfast for dinner).

Thomas’s everything bagel

Hot pepper jelly (this stuff is amazing!). It is actually pretty sweet and it goes great with eggs. My friend’s daughter makes it in case you are interested in buying some. 🙂

Finished product!

My mom and I looked through the Title Nine and Athleta magazines while I ate. (FYI – my dream job would be a stay at home mom who models for Athleta on the side.) Maybe someday right?

I love Thursday nights…eating fro yo while watching Honey Boo Boo. This was our second try at taking a picture and this was the best one. LOL.

My alarm was set for pretty early this morning.

Annabelle decided that I should wake up even earlier at 4. I got her back to sleep around 4:45 and headed to the gym.

Tempo Run

1 mile at a 8:45 pace
5 miles at a 7:35 pace

I wore the low cut Pro Compression socks for the first time and I LOVED them. I’m sure I’ll be buying way too any pairs of these. I’m still rocking my Brooks Pure Flow 2s…they never let me down.

I quickly showered and headed into work. My appetite wasn’t real there, but I ate frosted mini wheats and a banana with skim milk.

I was very surprised that there were 7 grams of protein in this serving of cereal, so I managed to get a good mix of carbs and protein (and potassium) with this breakfast. 🙂

Now looking ahead to dinner…maybe pizza to carbo load for my 20 miler tomorrow morning!?!?!?

What are your Friday night plans?

What time did you get up today?

Comments

  1. Plans? Chill out! Had a grilled chicken salad for dinner…I got up around 6 today! Have fun tomorrow! I did 2 miles out of 7 at a 7 pace and it was tough for me. The other mile I wimped out and did 7:30 pace. The other 4 were slower…sigh…waiting for winter to end!!!!

  2. OMG : You are so dedicated to get up at 4:40 to go to the Gym! I didn’t get up till 8 am! I have been exhausted since I got back from Florida. I guess getting up each day at 3 am will do that to ya! Have a great weekend friend!

  3. Great pictures. All the food looks delicious. I love Athleta clothes, it’s 90% of my running gear.
    I got a bunch of low pro compression socks after trying (and liking) the high marathon ones. Now those two models are all I run with.
