In preparation for today's long run I was sure to fuel up properly. Therefore, last night's dinner consisted of broccoli, turkey and cheese pizza....lol. This has to be the most wonky combination of food ever in the history of the world. I actually steamed the broccoli, warmed some leftover turkey and made a cheese pizza from multigrain crust, tomato sauce with some mozzarella cheese sprinkled on it. There are no pics since Matt and I both ran 10 miles yesterday which made us both Rungry. :D
This morning I ate oatmeal pre-run along with my favourite coffee flavour as of late. Just Us puts out a fantastic Holiday Blend every Christmas and I am already on my second bag....lol. Also, check out my cute mug Matt gave me for Christmas, hehe. What's your favourite pre-run fuel?
Today I ran along the main road in the opposite direction than I usually do. I haven't run this way since the end of Summer! Partially because the shoulder is completely covered in snow and ice now, plus there is no sidewalk :S
There was very little traffic, this being Sunday morning and all. The wind was also at bay, which therefore meant very little head wind. :D My legs were slightly stale after yesterday's 10 miles, along with the previous 6 days of running without rest. I realize I need to take a rest day. And I plan to. It's just not that often that I'm on vacation and can totally take advantage of running in the daylight. :)
It was a pretty uneventful run overall. The conditions were great though. It was plus 1 degree with overcast skies. My mind was busy thinking about my year in running and what 2014 will hold for me. This made time fly by! Then at 8.5 miles I saw Samantha again. We've been 'running' into each other quite often lately. :)
Today I fuelled up on the run with my new Grape Flavoured nuun water. I am really liking this kind.

Remember how I told you yesterday that I signed up on Daily Mile? Well this is one of the best features I believe! Check out how they graph your mileage for you:
And not only are the mileage graphs cool, look what else they do for conversions:
I did not realize that I ran for over 6 hours this past week! I hope you noticed that I've apparently burned off 25.47 donuts! LOL.
Week #2/18 for Marathon Training is in the books. :) How has your week in training gone?
My turkey soup is bubbling on the stove top now so I'd better go give it a stir.....and a sample of course. ;)
Thanks for visiting me on this Sunday afternoon. Have a beautiful day!
P.S. Lola says, "Hey" ;)
