I had one of those runs that was just not so great this morning.
After I woke up I ate 1/2 of a Power bar ,and drove to the lake where I earned my new distance record last week. I already knew the run would be a little tougher than usual because my legs were tight from all of the strength training I did at the gym yesterday. Well, it was pretty bad, I thought about stopping at least 4 times. I felt like my body = a ton of metal. The combination of the heat, my sore muscles, and a stomach ache seriously slowed me down and I finished 3 miles in just under 30 minutes. This is probably the slowest 3 miles time I have gotten since I started running regularly. I was bummed and it put a pretty big damper on my mood.
But then I reminded myself:
- Not every run is perfect
- At least I got out there and ran
- I didn’t stop
- It was still an awesome workout
- It will be better next time
Breakfast this morning was pretty yummy. I made a veggie scrambled egg bowl. For a normal person it would be a veggie scrambled omelet, but I am never capable of keeping it an omelet, and just give up and result to scrambled eggs!
To make it I cut up some veggies, added some cheese, cooked it on the stove, and topped it off with some avocado.
- 1/4 orange pepper
- 1 large mushroom
- A little bit of cut up onion
- 1 cut up Light Baby Bell Cheese
- 3 egg whites, 1 egg
- A couple slices of avocado
It looked prettier when it was cooking than when it was done.
But, it tasted SO good :).
At least my yummy breakfast made up for my not so great run, right?
I’m off to go shopping, but I’ll leave you with a picture of Spanky since his adorable face hasn’t graced the blog with it’s presence in a few days.
