and so it begins.

in Running and Training

I did my first official training run for the half marathon! I did 2 miles in 21:18 (10:39 pace). I tried to do a little speedwork, but more than anything, running the whole time. I did end up walking 1/10th of a mile, but overall I was pleased.

After my usual breakfast of cereal, I had a midmorning snack of a piece of danish that a coworker brought in. I probably could have eaten three more pieces (but I didn’t). I love sweet stuff like this. Definitely a weakness.

My sister (not the one I was visiting this weekend, but my other sister) and one of her kids met me for lunch! What a treat! We went to a local place, The Omelette Shoppe, and I had my usual: the California veggie omelette with egg whites (it comes with avocado, tomato, green olives, mushrooms, and sprouts) and English muffin toast with their homemade jam. I cleaned my plate!

I can’t lie, a big reason I eat there is because of the homemade jam. It’s like candy, it’s so good!

After my run, I came home and fired up the oven to make vegan enchiladas! I used refried beans, Morninstar crumbles, and veggie cheese. I definitely should have read the instructions for the enchilada sauce before I left the store because I didn’t realize that it took two cans. Oops! So, the sauce was a little sparse, but overall, they were tasty! I made a disaster of my kitchen in the process, but it was worth it!

I ate about one and a half for dinner.

Looking back, I definitely didn’t get enough fruits and veggies in today. I need to start doing a better job of eating those earlier in the day so I don’t have this revelation at night.

Congrats on the run!! I love danises, too. That omelet looks absolutely amazing. I bet it was so delicious. Sounds like you had a great day. Plenty of your food had veggies, so don’t be hard on yourself.

Thanks for the encouragement…it didn’t feel like much, but probably doesn’t help I’ve got so much sitting in my kitchen waiting to be eaten!

That omelette is the stuff my dreams are made of – perfection! Great job with the run this morning. I’ve been running a lot lately and find myself much hungrier!

I feel like I eat so much more when I’m regularly running!!

I will be starting training for a 1/2 marathon this Sunday. (20 week program).

Cracks me up that your sweet stuff looks like you have a bottle of beer in the corner. (I’m sure you’re just carbo loading. 🙂

Congrats on the run! I’m a newbie runner training to complete a half marathon hopefully next year at the Disney Princess Half!

Oh, I would love to do that half! Who knows, maybe I’ll see ya there!
