Thanks for all of your recommendations this morning on my running dilemma. I have decided to take your advice and up the mileage for my Thanksgiving run to 11 miles. I plan to utilize my parent’s gym membership on either Saturday or Sunday, which ever day I feel like going to the gym will be considered a strength training day and the other I plan to run 6 or 7 miles. Those will be my last long runs. I will probably do some short runs next week (nothing more then 4 miles) and rest the two days prior to my half.
So there it is, my final plan leading up to my half. So exciting!!!
Besides tweaking my training plan, today has been pretty slow in the office. A lot of people are on PTO this week so there’s not many people around. I believe I overworked myself in anticipation for the short week. I went from being super busy trying to get everything in order for the holiday, to now just taking it easy with little work left. Live and learn, right?
Midmorning I did snack on twelve Brazil Nuts.
Lunch revolved around a new mild obsession I have. I am sure you will be seeing this new obsession in a lot of my upcoming meals, I actually already have a dinner planned in my head for it. The obsession started with my amazing lunch on Saturday. The Buffalo Chicken Panini was so delicious that I knew I had to immediately buy Buffalo Sauce and try to recreate it. My new obsession is now clearly Buffalo Sauce.
I made a sandwich today using a small wheat bagel with turkey slices, fat free cheddar cheese, alfalfa sprouts and tomato. I covered the turkey with buffalo sauce and microwaved the sandwich to make it all warm and gooey. The results were amazing, my only regret was not covering it with enough Buffalo Sauce.
On the side I cup up a pear and some fresh pineapple. I thought the meal needed something else so I mixed the last half of the Vanilla Oikos container I accidentally used in my meal of Saturday with the fruit. There was just enough yogurt to cover the fruit like a dressing. It was amazing.
I was afraid the meal would not be enough food, but an hour later I still feel relatively stuffed.
Now I must find something to work on for the rest of the day. Maybe I’ll do inventory. You know that’s always a fun thing to do. :/
