Yup, 6:30. And while we NEVER eat by then, I must say that 6:30 would make a MUCH better dinner time then…(drumroll please)
A MARATHON PACE!?!??!?
Yes, you heard that right…a MARATHON pace! My father-in-law (Dad #2) used to run marathons and is VERY supportive of and excited about my running hobby. He told me this weekend at Easter that his pace for marathons was a 6:30! Holy cow! I can’t even run ONE mile at a 6:30! Gooooooo Dad!
Anywhooooo, yesterday was certainly NOT going to be the day to break any speed records for me. I had a terrible run! Don’t you hate when that happens? Here is what was getting me on my outdoor 4-mile River run…
1. My stomach was KILLING me- I don’t know what didn’t settle right OR if the 90 degree heat just got to me, but I had to crouch over and walk the last quarter mile. Bummer. It was painful.
2. I swallowed a bug. Gross.
3. I was HOOOOOOOOOT (90 degree weather)
4. My legs were sore- I was still wearing in my new sneakers- wonder if this is why?!?! Dunno.
OK, that is just 4 reasons. I just wasn’t feeling it. After my run I went to Aqua fit, and like always, it was a hit!
So, when I got home I needed some SERIOUS fuel. This is what I have been ALL about lately…
Have you guys ever had this stuff? It is soooo good and has a whopping 6 grams of protein per serving for staying power! It is quite caloric, but I think the protein balances it out. Yay for Bear Naked! Yum! All together with some Yoplait Light (I’m digging the blueberry with this granola but also LOVE the apple turnover with yummy real apple bites throughout)…
OK, moving on…Last night for dinner, we had a return of Shake-N-Bake, except I think I baked for too long- it was TOUGH.
Oh well. The mashed potatoes were also gritty so I wasn’t digging those either, BUT the frozen brussel sprouts in butter sauce were DELISH! I was delighted to see that “frozen veggies are just as nutritious as fresh” as I buy frozen due to poor “food timing” (aka stuff going bad before I remember my purchase).
Anyway, question for today—-what is your opinion on frozen vs. fresh veggies? Pros and cons?
