I have this thing where anytime I go out for a run I default to three miles. Not two, not four…but an easy 5K. It’s been my “default distance” for as long as I can remember. Of course when I am in training programs for races I vary the distances to follow the plan but if I’m just going out to get a run in…it’s 3 miles 99% of the time. I know it will take me about 30 minutes and give me a good cardio workout.
It was 67 degrees, sunny and beautiful today so I decided that after months of three-milers I wanted to break the cycle. I ran five! It felt great. I am definitely more inclined to increase my mileage when conditions are favorable (basically…not cold!) so I hope to continue this beyond just today!
Do you have a default distance?
Onto the food…I met some girlfriends for brunch at Nolen Kithen after teaching yoga. They brought us chocolate scones with orange glaze to start.
The first thing that grabbed my attention was the breakfast pita. Scrambled eggs, roasted tomatoes, spinach, feta and cucumber yogurt sauce in a warm pita. It was phenomenal!
Sullie took full advantage of the sunny day and soaked it up in the backyard. She joined me for half of the run.
I hit up Trader Joe’s after my run to stock up on CLEAN eats for the week. I am focusing on keeping things pretty focused on fruits, veggies and protein next week.
I went to an event at the yoga studio tonight so I didn’t get to cook dinner. I stopped by Whole Foods and made a salad/hot bar box with all sorts of random things.
I’ve been watching the JT Saturday Night Live in the background while writing this post. Pretty funny. Love him (still don’t love Suit and Tie though).
Have a great week!
