I woke up this morning CRAVING fresh fruit. The urge for fruit was so powerful that when I opened the fridge and saw we had no fruit, I jumped in the car with wet hair and drove all the way to Trader Joeâ€™s at 9 AM.
I think the bag boy thought I was mildly crazy.
But at least I had everything I wanted for breakfast:
In the bowl:
- A banana
- Greek yogurt
- Sunflower seeds
The makings of a very happy breakfast. 🙂
Iâ€™m going to attempt a 6.0 miler later today and see how my IT band does. It ached after Thursdayâ€™s 3.0 miler, and if it hurts today, Iâ€™m going to have to make some tough decisions about my upcoming half marathons. Iâ€™ve dropped out of races before and, although it sucks, itâ€™s not the end of the world. BUT I donâ€™t want to blow my IT band in DC next weekend and not be able to run in NYC the following weekend, since itâ€™s a big mother/daughter trip.
Guess Iâ€™ll just have to listen to my body and let my IT band do all the talkinâ€™. :)
Did you have a race this morning? How was it? Or are you gearing up for a race tomorrow? Itâ€™s certainly race season!
