Hill run in the snow.

RUN: Bright and early this morning, hit the roads at 5:45 A.M. It was roughly a 7 Mile loop, topped off with 10×100 strides up two different hills, topped off with a 2 mile tempo in the middle.

I could NOT find a pair of gloves today! The temperature was roughly 19 degrees (feels like 10-ish?), and my fingers could have frozen off, no joke. But I love getting in an early morning run- it just sets the day off so well! And by the time the run was over, the sun was just starting to rise and it was BEAUTIFUL outside.


To refuel, I had this little guy:

Bad picture, i know. It was pretty much a homemade protein bar with rolled oats, peanut butter, chocolate whey protein, canned pumpkin, cinnamon, ground flaxseed, & a little 2% milk.

I also had a “fruit salad” on the side, consisting of diced banana & strawberries.

Fast forward:

Afternoon snack, Pumpkin Yogurt with Cereal (my fave!) There’s a little Kashi heart to heart poking out on the left.

Besides that, today was a very chill day. My legs are SORE (in that good sorta way!!) from running in the snow.

I’m still in love with my Mizunos, though somehow I feel like I’m cheating on Asics. Once Asics mans up and stays real with me, I’ll reconsider but for now I’m happily taken. 😉


Are you sick of this cold weather?

Are you tired of the same old thing?

Is a warm breakfast the ONLY thing on your mind. all. day?
