I rarely get to run with other people, so this morning I was ecstatic to have someone to run with! 🙂
My friend, Jen, joined me for a 10 mile run in the brisk, cold winter air!
Jen is a really good friend, so it was fun chatting with her and catching up on life! The miles went by quickly, and we managed to cover the 10 miles in 1:33 (one hour and 33 minutes). It is always slower going in the winter, but, hey, at least we’re getting out!
Overall, it was an okay run for me. I wasn’t feeling all that great, but I managed to chug along and keep a pretty decent pace.
My pre-run fuel included Quaker Oatmeal Squares with organic milk and half of a banana.
I may have also had a couple of Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls prior to heading out–they’re good pre-run fuel, right?
When I got back, I spent some time stretching, and then made a scrambled egg for post-run recovery protein. I toasted the other half of the English muffin and spread a little bit of butter on it. Served alongside grapefruit slices. I heart grapefruit!!
Loved the combo, and it sure tasted good after a cold run!
Do you prefer to run with others or by yourself?
