I went to bed last night determined to wake up this morning and get in a good run. When the alarm went off and I got out of bed, I was starving and knew there was no way I was going to be able to get in a quality run without breakfast but I didn’t want to delay getting out the front door because that always inevitably leads to either no run at all or a shortened one because of lack of motivation.
The easiest solution was to get something small in my system so I ate a quick Lara Bar while watching B enjoy his cheesy grits and toast with PB&J. Talk about food envy!
It was worth it in the long run though…
I left the apartment with the goal of getting 6.0 to 6.5 miles in and to run for about an hour.
I’d say I met those goals. And exceeded them. 7.0 miles in 56:39 for an average pace of 8:04 min/mile. I’ll take it!!
After my run I came back and immediately chugged water and made a protein smoothie.
I went with the standard; chocolate protein powder, frozen banana, soy milk, frozen spinach and peanut butter. Love.
I’m giving myself a little time to regroup and then jumping into Body Revolution, Phase 3, Workout 11 for the first time. Fingers crossed it doesn’t kill me!
I know it’s not technically April 27th at home yet, but since it is here, it allows me to be the first to wish my BFF back home HAPPY 26th BIRTHDAY!!!
I hope you have an amazing day, Courtney! No one deserves it more!
Would you rather workout immediately after waking up do you prefer to eat breakfast and let yourself really wake up beforehand?
