Run & Beans
First a little pre-run banana bread– warmed up and slathered with almond butter & walnuts.
Then a little 4.5 mile run. I should probably call it a jog 🙂 An old woman passed me walking. Ok not really, but I wouldn’t have been surprised- I was just plodding along. 🙂
I don’t know whether it was the beautiful sunshine or the awesome selection of music that was randomly playing on my Ipod, but I really enjoyed this run jog.
It was a good day for people watching too. I don’t really like running when there’s lots of people around, but it can provide for some good distraction. I was trying to decide who was my favorite today:
– the guy who was so adamant about not stopping at the traffic lights that he kept turning around and running back and forth between the two lights, trying to time it out to get a green light. Good luck with that runner dude.
– the HUGE macho tough guys running their tiny wiener dogs. (And yes, I saw more than one.)
– the little old ladies that had a honest-to-goodness full out Yogi Bear style wooden picnic basket, complete with a red-checkered picnic blanket and fresh flowers.
By the way, 60 degrees is down right hot compared to the 30 degrees I’ve done most of my running in. The wind may burn your face, but I have to say, I love not dripping sweat. Can’t imagine what running this summer is going to be like…
My post run lunch was Mexican leftovers. (Yes, MORE leftovers. At least they were different this time!)
A veggie quesadilla (Luckily I saw that hidden tomato before I ate it and it poisoned me. Blech!)
And a Zevia!
Goodness I’m stuffed now. Kinda makes you think about how gigantic restaurant portions can be. What I had today was only about one third of what I had last night. Lots-o-food!
