Good morning! If you’re a runner you know what it feels like after a race. You are on a high! It lasts for a couple of days and than its back to real life, real training, the tough stuff that helped you get through that last race.
I have been struggling in the last week with getting my runs in. I failed at getting my long run in on the weekend, so my make up day was Monday morning. I failed at getting it in Monday morning.
I was beating myself up all day yesterday. I was so mad at myself. I started thinking about when I was going to get it in this week and how it was now going to throw me off for getting in my other runs and long run this weekend. I decided to push the reset button and just keep going with what my plan said for this week for Tuesday and go from there, so that is where I am at. 11km/6.88m run done this morning. Back on track with a missed long run! It sucks but it is what it is!
This time of year is tough for me to get motivated. I decided to add some spice to my life last week with a new doo!
Going a little lighter!! Yay!
And some new to me food! I tried out a couple new things I stumbled across.
For breaky, some sliced apples with almond butter and trail mix.
For lunch some Quinoa Tabbouleh
For dinner some Sweet Potato Casserole.
And for dessert, which I haven’t actually made yet, Pillsbury Red Velvet Cookies!!!
Sssshhhhh, don’t tell Michelle!
What do you do to pick you up after a running high?
Pillsbury cookies anyone??
