Throwback Thursday

Since I was MIA for a little while, this post is throwing all the way back to last week. 😉

Here’s what I’ve been up to! PS I have to look back at my pictures to remember what I’ve been up to.

This was a Yasso 800s workout. In simple terms, I did 8 x 1/2 mile at the paces listed. 😊

A Superbowl Workout! I did the exercise that corresponded to what was happening in the game and then I did the workout all the way through at half time…then I had pizza and ice cream.

How to battle “RUNGRY”

One of my friends is new to running and training for his first half marathon! Yesterday he messaged me with the following question: “I always get so hungry the day after a run. How do I stop that?” The answer: you can’t! Your body is doing something new and it wants and needs more fuel to keep going. I know I am soooo hungry the day after my long runs and I eat constantly!

The best way to tackle “rungry” is to have lots of healthy snack options available at all times. 🙂

Snacks: When “rungry” hits!

A bar and a banana.

Greek yogurt and granola (chocolate chips optimal) 🙂

Cucumbers, apples, and guacamole.

Fruit! Apples, strawberries, clementines, peaches, plums…whatever is in season!

What is your favorite go-to snack?

Random Fun Stuff

I ran 10 miles on Saturday morning and I had some pretty fast (for me) miles. We did “pick ups” and ran at a semi-comfortable pace for a mile and then picked it up as much as we could for a mile. On my pick up miles, I managed to run between 7:10 and 7:30.

My run was followed by a massage and haircut at the spa. Happy early birthday to me!

My mom watched Annabelle while I was gone. I’m so lucky to have her.

We went to our favorite place for brunch on Sunday. I got eggs, potatoes, bacon, and toast. I usually get fruit instead of bacon, but they didn’t have any this week.

I bought this awesome cooler bag to take on vacation next week. I LOVE bags of any kind.

Annabelle actually ate some bananas!

My mom took me shopping at Athleta for my birthday. I got a bathing suit, running skirt and shirt, and two pairs of socks. Have I mentioned how awesome my mom is? 🙂

Annabelle has a pretty large head…which means she has a big brain right? Her 6 month appointment went great and she is ready to ride in the jogging stroller. I am so excited!
