Goal attained.

TGIF.

First off, I’d like to say that Wednesday was a wonderful day of eats. However, I caught the lazy bug and didn’t snap a single picture the whole day. You win some, you lose some.

My wife and I have nothing but praise for this product. Cheap levitra canada! Erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment can be effective.

Aside from Wednesday, Thursday wasn’t all that bad so let’s dive right in.

Breakfast – 7:15 am

This is a recycled photo (my camera battery was dead) but you get the jist of it.

If you don’t already know, I’m training for my first half-marathon in Charlottesville, VA on April 6th. Accidentally, I began my training plan a month early (whoops!) so the past few weeks I took a break from long runs.

Well, yesterday I decided to get back into training with a 10 miler. Before starting my run I knew if I could do 10 miles then I would be able to do the extra 3.1 on race day. IMG_4707

Surprisingly enough those 10 miles went by way faster than expected and I felt great the whole way through. My goal was to stay under 9 minutes per mile and just finish. Goal attained.

During my run I stopped for water every time I ran past my car which ended up being three times and then I nommed on some Sports Beans at miles 3 and 7.

On my next run I think I’ll switch back to Honey Stinger’s chews. They were a lot easier to eat during my last long run.

Running is almost completely a mental sport. It’s not about how fast you go or how far you it’s just that you go. My mind is in total control of my body when I run; if my mind is in the right place then my body will follow suit.

As soon as I got home I downed a pineapple coconut water to replenish my electrolytes — tasty tasty — and then got to work on lunch.

Lunch – 11:45 am

Roasted veggies, yes please!

Jennie-O turkey burgers have been quite the popular protein choice ’round these parts lately.

Spring mix + roasted zucchini, grape toms, sweet tater with rosemary + Jennie-O turkey burger + goat cheese + red onion + balsamic reduction 

I wish I could have this salad again…right now. Darn Lent and Fridays.

Snacks 

Not a single snack was photographed yesterday. My apologies! But I did graze a little throughout the day with a Peanut Butter Cookie Luna bar, some mixed nuts, and an orange. All very satisfying.

Sophie can fill in for the lack of snack pics. Look it! So cute! 🙂

Dinner – 6:30 pm

A serious craving for bread — specifically buttered rolls from O’Charley’s (Oh, how I love those things.) — struck as I was fixing dinner.

Before I dug into my egg white scramble I realized I had to crumble the remnants of Cheesy Garlic Bread Lays on top. Seriously, I had to.

I mean, I ran 10 miles after all. 😉

Dessert – 8:00 pm

Dark chocolate chips

Of course, I couldn’t end the night without a taste of dark chocolate.

The rest of my night was spent being a college student with some awesome girls out in Ttown.

Hope every one has a great weekend! I’ll holler at cha laterz.
