I must say – the Workout Protein Pancake was quite the breakfast for my 10.25 mile run this morning! It did sit a little heavy in my stomach for the first few miles, but nothing traumatic or really dissimilar to my normal breakfast.
I went to a new path that runs along the ocean for my run. It was quite nice to watch the herons and speedboats as I jogged. It started to rain around Mile 5.5, but it was just a light drizzle.
I took a lot of walking breaks. My energy levels aren’t up to par lately; probably due to the stress of the family emergency and crashing at my in-laws’ house. I am pleased to discover that I can take walking breaks every mile and still maintain my goal marathon pace of 10:30 easily. I heart walking!
Side note: James and Maggie love sweaty Mommy! Mmm, salt.
- Distance: 10.25 miles

Came home and was happy to see my mother-in-law was preparing breakfast! It made a nice lunch for me. 🙂
A cheese and egg mix with spinach:
And an English muffin:
I’m trying to be helpful around the house since everyone is really stressed out. My mother-in-law’s garden is currently a bit of a disaster. We’re going to spend the next few hours weeding and trimming so it looks more presentable.
No weed left behind!
Weeding is fun. I actually think it’s really relaxing and therapeutic. We’ve already been at it for an hour, and time is flying by! I could this for a living. Speaking of which, I am so behind in work. 🙁
Can I come weed your garden, too?
PLEASE weed my garden – it sure needs it!!
Good job on the run 🙂 I like walking on long runs too – they’re a fab mental break too 🙂
