Happy Monday! Sadly, another weekend has come to an end. Yesterday we started the day drinking coffee and lounging around. Those are the exact ingredients for a great Sunday morning, just incase you were wondering. Around noon we got ready and headed over to Kris’ aunt and uncle’s house for a delicious lunch!
But first… I ate jelly beans. A lot of jelly beans.
After lunch we headed out to check out an open house, came home to continue our house searching efforts online, and then hit the road for a long run. Finally!!! My legs were still extremely sore from my first barre experience, and I was feeling a little post lunch coma coming on but I finally convinced myself that if I am going to run the Pittsburgh Half Marathon the first week of May then I had to start getting long runs in.
I started the run thinking “It’s cold out. 7 miles is so excessive. I don’t know why I do this to myself”, and then “if I can just make it 4 miles then at least it will be a good workout”, and finally “this isn’t so bad, basically only a 5k left”. And that’s how I finished the 7 mile run.
Dinner was baked chicken breast with rice and cream of mushroom soup. Kris was nice enough to take charge in the kitchen while I showered, recovered, and boiled some eggs for our Easter eggs!!
This morning for breakfast I had a whole wheat English muffin topped with almond butter and a banana.
Have a great Monday!
