Easter Eggs and A Long Run

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.
