After I awoke this morning, I went on my first post-half marathon run. My legs have felt 100 percent normal since Tuesday and I was anxious to get outside and shake them out on a run with Sadie.
We covered five miles and I felt great. The weather was nice and cool and my legs weren’t stiff at all. I’ll take it!
Sadie seemed to have a ball and finished our run completely unfazed and ready for more playtime. She settled on hunting some shadows while I walked for a little bit to cool down.
Once I arrived home, I made breakfast, wrote my morning blog post and worked through the morning until lunchtime.
In honor of National Peanut Butter Day, I made sure to include the creamy nut butter in my mid-day meal.
I made myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on toasted Ezekiel bread and served it with an apple, Wheat Thins and Sabra roasted pine nut hummus.
Not too shabby!
Question of the Afternoon
Now that my half marathon is over, I feel like I need a new fitness goal in my life. I have a few ideas in the back of my mind, but I would love to hear about your current fitness goals, so I ask you…
- Are you currently working on a fitness goal? Any big races or fitness competitions in your future?
