With the glorious chilly temperatures hovering through the morning in Ocala today, I decided to shuffle my workout schedule around a bit and tackle the long run on my half marathon training plan for the week around lunchtime today.
Sadie was amped as usual and basically pulled me through our entire 10 mile run.
We ran a ginormous loop around town and finished 10 miles in 1 hour and 30 minutes (9:05 minute mile pace).
I’m not sure how or why my pace per mile seems to be dropping as I increase the mileage of my long runs, but I’ll take it! I think a lot of it has to do with the cooler weather. It is 10 times more pleasant to run outside when the heat doesn’t make you feel like your face is going to melt off.
Lunch was top-of-mind after a quick post-run shower.
I made breakfast for lunch: Scrambled eggs with veggies and cheese, topped with 1/2 of an avocado and served with a buttered English muffin on the side.
I basically inhaled my lunch and before I knew it I was back in the pantry looking for more food.
I spy, with my little eye, salted pistachios!!!
I bought a bag of Harry & David pistachios as a stocking stuffer for Ryan for Christmas and think I may need to replace them since I ate more than my fair share out of his bag today. Sharing is caring, right? I just couldn’t stop eating them this afternoon. The saltiness called to me!
I hope you’re all having a great Friday out there! Our plans for the weekend are very low key, which sounds perfect to me. I’m hoping to make it to the movies at some point to see Les Miserables. Have any of you seen it yet? Thoughts? I absolutely love musicals, but have never seen Les Mis. I think a lot of the music is beautiful, so I’m anxious to see it!
