Today’s crappy weather turned into the perfect running conditions.
All the rain stopped this afternoon, but the skies stayed overcast and there was a cool breeze in the air.
No run, slight breeze, no humidity = my favorite running weather.
I also think I’ve found the key to snacking before going on a run. I cannot have dairy, so no yogurt or lattes or cereal. I tend to do better with fruit, nuts, bars, or something along those lines. Also, I have to have it at LEAST an hour before I go. That’s longer than most people, but I would much rather eat earlier and run without horrible side stitches than to keep trying my luck. Today I had a banana and a few walnuts + raisins around 4:30.
All that to say – we had a good run today :)
4 miles, done. Nice pace, good conversation, crummy (but great) weather.
And we came back to some of my favorite leftovers of all time!
I think leftover split pea soup is my favorite. It gets SO thick after sitting overnight – almost to the texture of mashed potatoes!
Perfect with a little extra salt and crushed red pepper.
Plus 2 homemade biscuits + a little butter.
Full night ahead for me!
Peanut butter filled post in the am!
