Welcome back Monday

Morning! Today I woke up at my usual 5:15am and headed downstairs for the usual pre-run breakfast. A banana and lots of water. I am out of bagels which I am thinking is a good thing. I am finding I really can't control myself around bagels and other baked goods. It's better to save them for really long runs and not have them in the house. I am already dreaming of my next one, I am going to go for a chocolate chip bagel....... mmmmm......

Hills workout today was a toughie. We did a warm up for about 20 mins then we did 3 miles on a negative split. A negative split is getting faster and faster each mile. It's tough to do when you are chatting with a friend. Monday's workouts are always a medium effort. You can't go "hard" all week. This past SaturdayI did 7 miles on a negative split so I need to run easy. I ended up doing 3.25 miles of hills and 1.8 miles to and from base to my house. Not bad for a Monday.

Post workout breakfast was two eggs fried in Pam and two slices of turkey bacon.

Snack today will be mixed nuts with sea salt and Fage 2% yogurt with strawberrys and blueberrys.

Lunch today is going to be at a resturant. We are taste testing for our annual sales meeting. I am going to try and limit my intake. Last time I way overdid it by mistake. Too much tasting....... Lots of stuff I don't usually eat, DESSERTS. The resturant today is a seafood place so I am hoping for some lighter fare. Wish me luck.

Dinner tonight will be leftovers from last night. Grilled turkey tenderlion with BBQ sauce, 1/2 of a sweet potatoe with cinnamon and 4 asparagus spears.

Have a great Monday, run easy~
