I committed a major post-race fail on Sunday… I forgot to recharge my Garmin after the race.
My Garmin actually started beeping “low battery” a mile or so into the half. Can you believe it went on to last all 13.1 miles? Those things are tricky. Sometimes mine will say “low battery” and die two seconds later and other times it will say “low battery” and last through a half marathon. Sigh. Either way, it wasn’t turning on for me this morning. I put my Forerunner 10 on to see if I could run with that instead, but quickly discovered the battery was close to dead in that one, too. Whoops. No Garmin for me today.
I had 4 easy miles on my plan today. Two miles out and two miles back with really no need to know my pace. I ran with nothing my on wrists and just did what felt right. My calves were still tight, but loosened up when I started moving. By the way, I hate how dark it is so early in the morning. I know it won’t be this dark forever, but it’s no fun leaving and returning from a run without even a hint of the sun rising over the horizon. Boo.
My breakfast this morning came in a jar.
Scratch that. Technically I put it in the jar first. Oats in a jar with fresh strawberries and blueberries. I mindlessly ate it while checking up on the blog wold. Multitasking at its finest.
I lucked out with free fruit in the office kitchen this morning.
There was a breakfast meeting that ordered too much food and left the rest as a free for all. Sweet. Fresh fruit is so much better than stale donuts.
The packed lunch:
- Boars Head Jerk Turkey with swiss cheese, arugula, and honey mustard on an english muffin
Remember those steam-in-a-bag edamame I’m obsessed with from Publix? They’re great cold too. I steamed a bag in the microwave this morning and put half in tupperware for lunch and half in another tupperware for a snack or something tomorrow. I ate them cold. They were so easy and a nice change up from the same old, same old sandwich side.
What’s your favorite side items to pack with your sandwich?
