Yesterday evening I broke my not running streak. I had only taken 4 days off but it felt like I had taken 4 years off. Every step felt awful. Apparently eating like crap and being lazy is not good for training. Who knew? I wanted to go 3 miles and I did not have the extra .03 in me to make that possible:
Maybe this run was extra hard because I was being weighed down by my new bling? I think it had more to do with being weighed down by M&Ms but let’s just go with the ring theory. Even if the run was ugly the weather was pretty. I can already tell my overcast, cool breeze runs are coming to an end and it I am trying to enjoy them as much as possible.
Easy peasy. I had no plans to eat any dessert last night but when I was scrounging through the cabinets looking for something to pack for my lunch, I came across a wonderful surprise: a half full bag of dark chocolate mint M&Ms!
I thought these holiday favorites were long gone but apparently I was wrong. That means there are now currently 3 kinds of M&Ms in our house: dark chocolate raspberry, dark chocolate mint and milk chocolate coconut. I should probably eat these up before I load up on next weeks after Valentines Day candy sales. Guess my clean eating will have to wait. Shucks.
There seems to be some nasty weather headed to the northeast so hope you are all bundled up and ready for some treadmill runs!
What do you do to get through tough runs?
I tell myself bad runs now make good runs later. Also, I curse myself for eating some much crap.
Favorite kind of pepper?
orange and red.
