I just have to tell you about the most delicious run I had this morning. Of course, last week was a total failure as far as mileage and all, but the best “side effect” is my incredibly fresh legs :). Holy cow! I haven’t had legs this fresh since the time … well, since the time before I started running!
Woke up at 6:30 am. Had a piece of bread with almond butter as my pre-run snack. Couldn’t find any outside running clothes or my Garmin, but managed just fine wearing a mismatched pair of socks and zero gadgets. The air was incredible, smelling like a frozen watermelon, delicious all the way for 10 miles. My goal was no goal. I decided to stop training and start running. My marathon training schedule said 5 miles, and I said 10! Fresh legs take you far :) I told you I needed those days off. I loved the feeling of being able to run forever.
Early lunch at 11:30 am included lentils soup and stuffed tortilla (refried beans, green onions, soy cheese). 2 apples with almond butter because I was still hungry. Polished with 2 dark chocolate squares and ginger tea.
Afternoon was spent shopping with mom and making pizza for dinner. I just love homemade pizza!
