Road Run

I have a set little route I run on Wednesdays. It’s about 7.5 miles out and back and it’s great because there are only 3 lights (each way) for the entire time! But, the city (?) has been doing road/sidewalk construction for the last 2 weeks. There is no sidewalk on the other side of the very busy street so I just have to try and dodge bulldozers and huge cement trucks – this means I end up running in the street alongside cars rushing to work! Plus the construction guys just look at me annoyed like I am getting in their way. Uh!!! Sorry, I’m just really annoyed that I have to risk my life to get in a good run.

I ended up running 7 miles this morning. When I got back home I tried to do some weights, but my stomach told me to eat breakfast. By the time I got out of the shower it had been 2 1/2 to 3 hours since I woke up and I hadn’t eaten anything. I may need to break up  my breakfast into 2 parts – a small breakie right when I get back from running & something else when I get to work (about an hour and a half later).

Question: Do any of you eat 2 breakfasts?

I could not decide what I wanted for breakfast and settled on an alternative bagel with PB&naner and jam, plus 3 egg whites with ketchup. dscn6646I thought this protien filled breakfast would get me full, but I was not full or satisfied at all after. I ended up eating a few handfuls of grapes & when I still felt like I wanted something, a cup of cereal with skim. dscn66471I actually am a little hungry right now, I think I need to chug some water and get some work accomplished though…

I registered for the OC half marathon yesterday 🙂 (Note: 70 bucks later, races are too expensive!!!) And I found a very difficult half marathon training plan online 🙂 It’s a little advanced for me, so I’m going to tweak it a bit before I post it! I’m excited though!

  1. Which training plan are you using?

  2. Good luck on your training!
    I never had two breakfasts before, but it would make sense if I run as many miles as you!

  3. I’ve never done 2 breakfasts before but it would make sense for your schedule! Just maske sure you don’t take in more calories than you normally would on just the 1 breakfast!!

  4. good luck with the training!
    I’ve never eaten 2 breakfasts, but I don’t typically work out in the morning.
