Hump Day breakfast

This morning I am really tired and woke feeling unrested. I went to bed at about 10:30pm vs. my new normal 9:00pm. It's so hard to fit everything in; dinner, epsom salt bath, stretches, tv time, pug time, husband time. There just is not enough hours in the day!

PT was less brutal than usual. I met with Dr. K right after my "Stem Cell" therapy. He adjusted me and did some sort of pressure release on both of my legs / hips. I am really feeling it today.

My run started later than I had hoped for, about 5:50am. I need to try and get my mileage up to 20 miles per week so I can actually do the "speed work" I signed up for. I was able to squeeze 4 miles in this morning at a slow pace. I am feeling sore from PT manipulation + I don't want to overdo it before my performance testing tonight at PT. My Garmin is acting up, I can't see what my pace is. I figured out at one point that I had it set to "swimming" so that was part of the problem. I will have to look at it closer this evening.

Pre-run breakfast today was 1/2 of a hard boiled egg + 1/2 of a 1/2 bagel with light whipped cream cheese. The bagel from HEB was really dry and tasteless. I won't be purchasing bagels from there again. I read that a bagel (not whole grain) is good for a pre-run snack if you get digestion problems while running. It seemed to work for me today even with drinking Gatoraide. I previously suspected Gatoraide was irritating me. The bagel really helped! Try it out!

After-run breakfast was a Green Foods shake with 1 cup light vanilla soy milk, 1T almond butter, a sprinkle of flax seeds, 1/4 cup Fage 2% yogurt, a handful of blueberrys, 1/2 banana and one scoop of Green Food mix. I was feeling pretty stuffed from last night still.

I snacked pretty early again today at about 10am on mixed nuts with sea salt.

I did not bring my lunch today so I will have to run out. I am thinking Chick Filet but I will keep you posted. LOL!
