Hello to all of my lovely readers! I hope you are all having a great week. More than halfway over! I’ve got some exciting stuff to share today. First off, yesterday was my big race I was telling you all about on Monday! 10 Nalgenes later, I rocked it. I won the two-mile in my league meet and PR’d! What more could I ask for? Nada, I’m feeling grateful and blessed to be able to run and do what I love everyday! My previous time for the two was an 11:51, and that happened to be a race where I had a girl in front of me that I was pacing off of. She wasn’t in my race yesterday, so it was a bit tougher because I was the one out there pacing everyone else. I had a feeling that might happen, so I was ready to make the watch my biggest competitor. I had my two supportive parents out there giving me my splits and cheering me on very loudly! Something I will never take for granted. Overall, I felt good while I was racing. I really think I prepared well for this race by going easy on those couple days before and making sure I was rested, hydrated, and fueled. I came across the finish line at 11:41 and feeling like I really gave it my all. For anyone who runs, it’s a great feeling huh?! RUNNER’S HIGH!
And of course we can’t forget about WIAW! This is only my second time doing it, but both times I’ve posted at night about what I ate that same day. I think I’m gonna change that up in the future, so I don’t feel bad if I forget to take a picture of anything I put in my mouth on a Wednesday. But for this week, it’s what I had today! P.S. sorry in advance for the not so stellar quality pictures.
Breakfast was the usual vanilla chobani with granola (which included raisins, pumpkin seeds, and almonds..yum). Never fails to satisfy.
These were my morning snacks; a blueberry & strawberry parfait & a cinnamon apple chobani. Two chobani’s in one morning? Oops. But regardless, it was delicious!
This is where I become forgetful. My lunch was a tasty pear and the wrap of champions……in which I forgot to take a picture of when building this morning. I couldn’t think of a valid excuse as to why I was taking a picture of my wrap at lunch today and I knew you guys would understand! Be creative and imagine a whole wheat wrap filled with a honey mustard spread, chicken, sliced apple, craisins, and crushed almonds. Oh yes, it happened. I promise I will get a picture of it soon!
My afternoon snack took place about an hour after my recovery run and it was a granola, craisin combo (just couldn’t get enough of the granola this morning). Super satisfying and delicious.
