Hellooo and happy Thursday! (:
I am in the best mood. Today I ran 5 slow miles. I haven't run anything over 2 1/2 miles in TWO WEEKS. That's a long time. I am proud to announce that I had no pain whatsoever! I had terrible, terrible shin splints and a resulting knee pain, but now it's mostly gone. I really hope I don't jinx it!
That "runner's high" kicked in right after mile 4. Suddenly my brain got really happy and I ran the last mile a lot faster than the rest. I love long runs for that reason. It's feels like torture until you get to "that point" and then the rest of your run (and day) is wonderful.
I had hill repeats after the 5 miles, and we had to run to and from the hill, so it was actually closer to 6 miles today. I'm allowed to do 15 miles a week this week, and I did 2 on Monday, 2 on Tuesday, and I couldn't run yesterday (blood sugar low- wouldn't come back up). I'll probably do the rest of my weekly miles Saturday. We have team bonding tomorrow instead of practice.
Time for Healthy Eats Week- Day 3.
Now, I'm not a picky person, so I'll normally just eat whatever my mom makes or gets. It's summer, so I'm out a lot, and eat out more than usual. These meals are just what I make when it's up to me.
Quinoa/rice mix (not that great, from a microwavable bag), broccoli (from TJ's), and a Veggie Masala burger topped with plain chobani (!!!)
My new favorite thing in the whole world. Tried these as a sample, and I fell in love. They are just a little bit spicy and oh-so delicious. The chobani on top? Genius.
Sorry for the ugly picture. Lately I've been loving salmon filets with dry rub. So yummy, and salmon has those Omega 3's. (:
My mom doesn't always add vegetables to our meals. Frozen veggies are perfect for me since they don't go bad and I can quickly make them to add with any dinner.
Healthy Eats Week isn't over.. I still have a post or two with snacks! (:
What's your favorite dinner? How do you incorporate more vegetables into your meals?
