Friday workout – 55 min 7 miles outside

Saturday – 110 min 12 miles outside

I’m learning that blogging on a daily basis is slightly more difficult then reading blogs on a daily basis.

I got to start Friday of a smoked Salmon Omelet.B Prefect example of diet of a marathon trainer vs. a small cup of oatmeal of a diet of a non-runner.

ImageYes it ended up being a bit overcooked, but for $3 bucks and the convenience of a work cafeteria can’t be beat!B The problem with all you can eat cafe is that you add things like home fries and and a spinach cheese quiche all before making your way out.B I have no idea how I even did that but next thing I knew they were in my to go carton as well.B All is well I grazed on this through most of morning while working before noon time arrived for my lunch time run.

I recent converted from treadmill running (another perk of working in a big company vs. small) to running outside if it was sunny, over 45 and I had 65 minutes to take for lunch.B Plus, my knees have been bothered me from the treadmill so I decided some change might do me good.B You start to learn more about potential pains when you switch your treadmill runs from 7 miles to 14.B I’ll eventually sit down and write about all the things I did wrong for my first marathon training and all the pains I got.B Its amazing how running outside increases you speed.B I made it though 7 miles in 55 minutes, with an even faster time shower afterwards in record time.B

When I got back to work, there was leftover sandwiches, so I grabbed half of a turkey cranberry one that I think was ordered from Pizzeria Regina’s.B I’d show a picture, but I’m embarrassed of how unhealthy it looked (plus there’s only so many food pictures I can take in a day before my coworkers start to wonder whats wrong with me.)B

After work, I came outside to a surprise:ImageI know it hard to see in this blurry picture, but that’s natural small amount of daylight left at 5:30pm.B I can almost see spring on the horizon!

The rest of the evening was low key.B I dug through Marshalls looking for a cut running skirt for my DC and more important Boston marathon.B I brought two I need to test out to see if they’re comfy.B Shopped for cat food, people food and enjoyed some homemade french Lentil soup made by Tony’s mom with this for dessert.B

I hate to say it, but this tastes even better than the pumpkin one I treasured for so long.B And okay I lied, I also had some last remainder of my Cadbury chocolate from London for dessert as well.B B

Do you have a pet? If a cat, what do you feed it?B

My childhood cat passed away at 12 from kitty cancer so I’ve been doing a lot of research in confusion.B So far we are feeding him half a can of fancy feast kitten can food and Blue Buffalo Wilderness Grain free dry kitten food.B It’s a bit pricey but hopefully it’ll keep him healthy for many years.

Whats your favorite beer?

Mine rotates, but I think right now its this blueberry smash, if only it came in 12oz instead of only pints!
