10 Miles

October 16, 2010

I usually increase my mileage each Saturday, but since I’m running the Zombie Half Marathon next Saturday, I decided to run 10 miles again today. I thought about running less and tapering a little, but since I’m not that concerned about my performance next weekend, I’m not going to do much of a taper.

While on my run, I had the remaining 3 Clif Shot Bloks (one serving) in this package. I munched on these during a pit-stop while Craig and I waited for two, large bull moose to cross the road in front of us. (They can be pretty slow-moving animals.) I can’t believe I didn’t want to bring my camera. Craig even asked me before we left, and I said no. Bummer! 🙁

I really like the taste of Clif Shot Bloks, but I have to stop and chew them. The energy gel packets are about the only thing I can consume while continuing to run.

On my long run last week, I wore my Nike mitten/gloves and my hands froze, so this week I had to pull out a thicker pair.

I really like these Saucony mittens! These are much thicker and provide a lot of warmth for my hands. I also love the area for wiping your nose. Trust me, I’ve used it many times. 😉

My run went okay; I didn’t feel awesome, but I still trucked along and managed to keep myself going at a pretty decent clip.

As soon as I got back from running, it was time to get some food back in my system.

One scrambled egg with a little bit of cheese + 1 slice of turkey bacon + English muffin

The warmth of this egg sandwich tasted so good after my cold run. The savory bacon and cheese really hit the spot!

And a strawberry banana smoothie.

milk + frozen strawberries + 1/2 banana + protein powder + chia seeds

I love how thick and frothy smoothies are! 🙂

I don’t have too many plans for the day, which I am quite happy about. I’m just going to go wit h the flow and see what happens! 🙂
