I woke up to an extra-chipper dog who also seemed to have the running itch.
Sadie and I tackled our typical 5-mile loop and it felt wonderful. I ran for fun, didn’t push myself at all and enjoyed the music on my iPod. I must admit it felt pretty good to run because I wanted to, not because my training plan said I had to.
After our sweaty run, I was ready for breakfast.
Peanut butter sounded great this morning (but then again doesn’t it always?), so I made myself a peanut butter and peach sandwich, which I dusted with nutmeg before inhaling.
My breakfast also included a small bowl of fresh blueberries.
If all of my breakfasts contained peanut butter and fruit, I think I’d be a happy girl.
Question of the Morning
Do you prefer working out when you’re training for a race or event or do you prefer exercising simply for the health of it?
I like having a goal in mind, but I definitely prefer simply working out for my health rather than to prepare for a race. I like doing whatever workout I feel like doing on a particular day rather than feeling like I have to do a certain workout to stick to a training plan.
