Long time, no see.
That’s right. Nick and I went running today for the first time in over 5 months. I guess the good (and bad) thing about having a blog is I can look up exactly when we went last.
The weather was just beautiful today and we wanted to get Maggie outside for a while after work, so we gave it a whirl.
Nick had Maggie on her lead while we ran, and she did okay! We went about 2 miles running and another half mile walking back to the house.
And me? Well…I can definitely tell I haven’t run in 5 months :\
BUT – I’m so glad we went. Maggie needed 2 walking breaks during our run and I only needed one ;) I ended up having a pretty bad side stitch about halfway through, but that’s also pretty normal for me.
Now that the weather is better and we’ll be running more often, I definitely need some better fuel!
I had some veggies + hummus at work this afternoon – good snack, but I think I need something more filling if we’re going to be running after work. My lunch also wasn’t big enough – I was pretty hungry today and didn’t have much else for a snack.
After we got back, stretched, and showered, Nick and I heated up some pasta leftovers for dinner.
Leftover pasta is the best! I think it tasted even better tonight – this recipe was definitely a success!
I think Maggie’s ready for LOST…
