Good evening! Going on a run tonight was a real mental challenge — I was just not in the mood to do a 5.0 miler. So I compromised with myself and did a 5k. One of the healthier habits I’m trying to pick up is to not have an all or nothing attitude.
So, I ran 3.0 miles and came home. Better than just sitting around! Here are my statistics:
- Duration: 29 minutes
- Average Heart Rate: 151 bpm
- Maximum Heart Rate: 210 bpm (my HRM was obviously acting up!)
- Calories Burned: 250
My mid-run snacks included… yogurt and Grape Nuts!
And a dates…
My pre-run snack was toast and pumpkin butter…
So, the other night (Sunday I think, after my long run), I accidentally ate some of Husband’s precious chocolate orange, and he was really upset! 🙂 I felt so bad that I ate his sacred British candy, I bought him a WHOLE CASE!
He was super excited! I ate three slices 🙂
My mid-afternoon snacks +the chocolate were so filling, I just wanted something light for dinner.
My grilled chicken salad included cucumbers, a grilled pineapple, and celery! Yum!
I need to get to bed EARLY tonight! 🙂 Sleep tight.
Oh, I’d like to give a shout-out to Meg of Bites Du Jour, who made my fish burritos recipe and posted her review! Thanks, Meg! 🙂
That salad looks so good! It’s been too cold here to even think about salad, but I’m starting to miss it.
I do the same things on days I’m not really feeling my longer runs. A lot of times I get out there and find motivation to do more!
