Gummies on the Go

Good Morning!! And Happy Friday! :)

Breakfast

This morning started off with an old favorite for breakfast.

Oats in Jar!

Brian finished off a jar of peanut butter yesterday morning, so last night I put together some overnight oats to enjoy before my run this morning.

  • 26g oats
  • 2/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 individual sized container plain Greek yogurt
  • dash of vanilla
  • dash of cocoa powder

This morning I had nice chocolatey-peanut buttery oats to enjoy!

Workout

After breakfast had some time to sit, I headed out for my long run on the week.

I finished 13 miles in a little under 2:05. Not my best 13 miles, actually probably my worst 13 miles I have ever run but I’m not complaining. I got them in and that is what matters.

I tried something new for my mid-run fuel and used gummy bears.

I really like using shot blocks and I know that some people use chewy candies so I figured why not give them a try.

I thought they may be a little easier to eat on the go since they are smaller but they actually proved a little harder for me to chew and I had to actually walk while eating a few of them.

Exactly why I tried them out on a training run! :)

Before signing off for the morning, I have to share last night’s dinner with you.

Filet (made by Brian – yummm), green beans and the star of the show, cranberry cinnamon goat cheese mashed potatoes.

Wow, that’s a mouthful!

But so delicious!!! We simply made mashed red potatoes as we normally would prepare them and mixed in cranberry cinnamon goat cheese which added a creamy texture and an amazing taste!

So happy we have leftovers!

Off to enjoy the afternoon with Brian before he heads to the field. He’s pitching tonight – wooohoooo! :)

Question:

What fuel do you use for your long runs?
