Sunday morning started out with a bowl of 10 grain hot cereal cooked with 1/2 a banana and then topped with the other 1/2 and some almond butter.
It was mighty filling and kept me going while I spent the morning cleaning the house. I did my push up exhaustion test… all 28 of em! I’ll continue in the 3rd column for week three.
I decided that I’d wait until the afternoon to go on my long run. I had planned out a 9.5 mile run and the weather was perfect. It was nice and cool but sunny. As I got going I guess I just wasn’t feeling the run. It could have been the monster hill in the first mile, or the constant uphill battle I felt but I turned early and cut it short by 2.5 miles. It ended up being 6.92 miles long (67 minute) with another monster hill around mile 5.5. Next time I will definitely plan a flat run.
Once I got home, and after some stretching of course, I worked on putting dinner together. I prepared butternut squash soup, shallot roasted chicken and salad. I love butternut squash soup. All that went into it was shallot, butternut squash, apples, yukon gold potatoes, salt, curry, ginger, cinnamon and soy milk. Once everything was all cooked I threw it in the food processor and voila yummy soup!
My after dinner treat = 2 squares of dark chocolate.
Jacob and I ended our night with some fun card games at my parents.
