You Know You’re in Training…

…when your wine bar no longer furnishes a libation to “soften” the day, but instead, looks more like a shelf at the local sporting goods store:


Training Calls For: 3 miles

Miles Run So Far: 31

Days Left: 110

You know those days when you don’t really want to follow the schedule and instead, have a hankering for pizza and beer and a night in?  Yep, having one of those.  Still going to lace up my running shoes soon, because the hardest part of a run you’re not that excited about is the first few steps you take…out the door.  I’ll get in to the groove and then eventually, it will all be done.  Another day ticked off on the Hal Higdon Novice 1 Marathon Training Schedule.

Eats for the day:

All natural, whole wheat toast with a smidgeon of Kroger-brand Nutella.

A “tropical” Green Monster Smoothie.  (Spinach, soymilk, protein powder, half a banana, a cup of frozen pineapple and a few drops of coconut extract)

A PB and Mango/Passion Fruit jam (ooh, fancy ;)) sandwich, on somemore whole wheat bread.

“Pita” chips I fashioned out of an aging Aldi multigrain wrap…cut it up, stuck it in a bag, shook some EVOO, cinnamon and a lil’ brown sugar.  Baked for about 10 minutes at 350 and boom!  Tasted amazing!

And a lemon Larabar made itself at home on my desk :).

I had a few unpictured noshes, but nothing too exciting…an apple here, some tortilla chips there, maybe a cuke came into play.  Just sayin’.

It’s time to hit the path and get my miles out of the way.  We’ve got some fun plans tonight — a farm team baseball game.  It’s half-dollar dog night!  (hot dog, not real dog — woof woof!).

Have a good one!
