Now I understand why bloggers are always amazed that it is "already time for another WIAW" post. I can't believe how quickly the week has gone by.
I woke up pretty late today. It happens. I'm on spring break! So, I made some coffee and had my usual pre-run snack of a banana, and two crackers spread with Sunflower Butter and topped with raisins. Sorry, no picture.
I didn't feel much like running. But, once I got out there, I flew! I don't know what came over me, but I managed 8 miles in one hour! I don't think a run that speedy has happened this entire training cycle! Bring it on, Boston Marathon.
I came back home feeling the high, guzzled water, and made my favorite post-hard-run lunch:
I finished lunch off with ... more sunflower butter and raisins! I have a problem.
Later, I had some apple and more tempeh with hummus. I think my body was craving protein. And, before I set out to do some errands, I ate a few bites of a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Larabar and had a few more crackers.
I came back home with a few new course books and one for fun book, Cloud Atlas. Has anyone read it? I've heard it's pretty mind-blowing.
I threw together a pretty lazy dinner of a massive salad bowl filled with greens, quinoa, red bell pepper, cucumber, brussels sprouts, and cannelli beans. Then, I sautéed a zucchini, some swiss chard, and mushrooms in a little vegetable broth and served it alongside the salad.
I cleaned up the kitchen and am flopped on the couch about to start my new book! I hope you all enjoyed your Wednesday!
