I am so-so-so happy I was able to run tonight! I did a glorious 6.0 miles. It felt great to blow off some steam, too. Mondays always get to me!
But first…. I had to wrap up work. I needed a substantial snack around 2:00 and had yogurt + cereal (Uncle Sam’s Original), topped with raisins and almonds.
Around 4:30, in the middle of a conference call, I had my pre-run snack (eaten about 1.5 hour before I left). I had a piece of WW bread, PB, and the other half of my apple from lunch.
Aaaaah to run again! Being a little injured over past two weeks has made me really appreciate a pain-free run.
Here are my statistics:
- Duration: 1 hr, 1 minute (6.0 miles)
- Average Heart Rate: 155 bpm
- Maximum Heart Rate: 187 bpm
- Calories Burned: 522
Post-Run Snack and Dinner
I came home and slammed down a skim milk + Muscle Milk Light smoothie. Yummy protein chunks!
We tried a new creation for dinner tonight. Neither Future Husband nor myself have ever tried BRUSSEL SROUTS! Can you believe it? But… they were so delicious!
I put the brussel sprouts in a bowl full of water and microwaved them for 6:00 minutes. Then, I cut them in half, drizzle some EVOO on the sprouts, and sprinkled everything with some garlic salt and pepper. Last, I roasted them for 25 minutes at 375.
On the side I had a 1/2 sweet potato and black beans. My favorite!
