Happy Tuesday friends. I’m having one of those weird days were abnormal food combinations sound appealing. Case and point? I ate oatmeal, goldfish, and peanut butter for breakfast. It’s weirding me out a bit that I wanted this because I’m normally a fruit with breakfast kind of person, but, I gave my stomach what it asked for. Still trying to wrap my head around it. Anyways… This weekend, the sun came out and it was glorious. And to make it even better, I had the entire day to myself Saturday. No work obligations at all! I had a lot of really fun activities on the agenda for the weekend so it felt great to get Saturday started off right with our final double digit long run before race day April 30th.
The sun was out, my legs were feeling fantastic, and I kept telling myself to take it slow and easy. Gotta keep those legs fresh for race day. Per usual, good conversation made the miles fly by and 12 were done before I even knew it. It’s crazy how easy a 12 mile run feels after running 22 the week before. Anyone else agree?
Our run met at Washington Park which meant we were just a couple blocks from my favorite donut shop. On the agenda after 12 miles? Celebratory donuts with the running group. I couldn’t decide what to get so I got two and ate half of each. I saved the rest to enjoy Sunday morning. These HIT. THE. SPOT. Per usual 🙂
Following the run, I took my time cleaning up and made myself a follow up to my post run donuts; some scrambled eggs! I loaded mine up with broccoli, cauliflower, and spinach. Topped with cabot cheese and a side of guac. Perfect and satisfying post run.
Later in the afternoon, I had a coffee date with a fellow nutrition friend before meeting another friend for dinner. We decided to go to Noodles & Company, somewhere I hadn’t been in years. They had such fun and interesting options on the menu. I went with the Thai Hot Pot and it was light, fresh, and so filling. I’ll have to come back more often!
On the agenda Saturday night? The FC Cincinnati game. Having a soccer team is a new thing for the Queen City so it was exciting to be a part of the excitement. We lost the game but it was still a good time. So many people were out for the game, we ran into some old friends, and made some new ones. Such a fun night.
Sunday morning, I took it easy and slept in. One final adventure was on the agenda for the day though, a walk. I shared some photos from Sunday here.
Tell me, what are your favorite foods? I want to know!
