Lunch and run
I’m a blogging fool today! Haha, I love being this caught up though 🙂 I can’t believe I didn’t need a mid-morning snack at all, that bowl of cereal must’ve really been what my body wanted which is why I made it 4.5 hours before hunger called.
Lunch today was a Morningstar Farms Griller’s Original burger, which this was my second one but I hadn’t had a chance to review them, I don’t think. They are GREAT! They remind me a lot of the breakfast “sausage” patties in their texture and somewhat their taste. They really make me feel like I’m eating a burger and not a veggie patty, although I like those too. It’s just a nice change.
I had this one on whole wheat toast with some spinach, 2% cheddar cheese, and mustard. On the side was a pickle, some leftover Green Giant asian style veggies and an orange. A very colorful lunch 🙂
This lunch lasted me for almost 4.5 hours until I broke into my yogurt stash (will show you tomorrow which one). It also powered me through a treadmill workout that I’m quite proud of. As I’ve mentioned before, I have a 5K coming up on Saturday morning that I do plan to run the entire 3.1 miles of. That’s my goal. Even if it’s a slow jog, let’s do it!
Here were today’s stats:
Time: 41 minutes (warmed up for 5, ran 30, cooled down for 6’ish)
Distance: 3 miles (ran from 0.25-2.68 or almost 2.5 miles without stopping!)
Calories: about 360 (realistically, more like 300)
It was tough at times, but once I got past the 1 mile mark, I knew I could keep going. I could’ve done the whole three today I think, but I ran out of time and wanted to adequately cool down. I have meetings set up with my running partner for the next three days and then Friday I’m either going to take off or cross-train. Yoga would be great too!
On tonight’s agenda:
- Epidemiology class @ 4:30
- Dinner (not exactly sure what yet but it will include some brown rice!)
- Dishes (please let the hubby have emptied the dishwasher, please!)
- Laundry (switch the loads around, plus put some away)
- Yoga (20 minutes)
Not necessarily in that order, except for class & dinner, haha. Have any of you all ever taken an epidemiology class? It’s way more challenging than I thought and doesn’t really apply to what I’m most interested in but it is a requirement for a program I might follow so I’m pushing through 😉
Hope you all survived Monday ok, see you tomorrow!
