Friday After Five Already?!

Holy Cow – where did the day go? It’s already Friday after 5 p.m.! And my day started super early with a 5:40 a.m. run with Katherine and Liz. Here they are:

Oops and Bodhi of course! Can’t forget him – he was our guard dog for the run. Aren’t they just the cutest?

We ran from York to Central Park and then ran a little ways along the outer drive and back. There were a few other runners out as well. We ended up running about 4.5 miles – a nice start to a Friday morning. 🙂 Thanks girls!

Now for a quick recap of yesterday’s eats. Yesterday’s breakfast was Kashi Heart to Heart with blueberries.

Lunch was a salad and my afternoon snack was Chobani with more Galaxy Granola (unpictured).

My day was busy and flew by. I didn’t eat my yogurt until about 4:30 p.m. Then after work I headed to the gym to squeeze in a 5-7 mile run. I definitely ate my yogurt too close to my workout – oh the stomach pains! I managed to finish 6 miles in 51:33 – I just could not force the last mile. I’ll never do that again.

Luckily, by the time I left the gym my tummy was feeling better and just in time for a nice stomach-jarring dinner: tacos.

I packed them pretty full…

To be honest, these didn’t hurt my stomach at all. I was wary about eating tacos the night before a morning run, but they didn’t bother me in the least (thankfully for my running companions – hehe). I made myself three tacos, but was so ravenous I ate four.

And yes, I apparently still needed dessert.

Blueberries and blackberries with more Galaxy Granola.

Now it’s the end of the day and time to head home. I am looking forward to a quiet evening at home with the Hubby watching a movie, maybe making some pasta, and heading to bed early cuz I have a lovely 15-miler planned for the morning. Hope it goes better than last weekend. 😦

What’s on your weekend agenda? Are you going to take advantage of the nice weather forecasted? Do some spring cleaning? Or maybe just relax?

I also have a Sunday lunch planned with some UES bloggers which I’m pretty excited about – so stay tuned and have a great weekend!!

  1. I’m glad I’m not the only one excited about this nice weather…here in the Midwest it’s supposed to be 50 today…I’ll take that! Hopefully get outside with the kiddo, then meeting the family for dinner later!

  2. GORGEOUS weather here…no clouds 70 degrees…I plan to be OUTSIDE as much as possible!

    Awesome run! 🙂

  3. Cute pic! It was so fun to go running with you ladies (and Bodhi!) — hope to do it again soon 🙂

  4. Great run with lovely buddies! Can’t wait to run again soon 🙂

  5. Do you normally run 2x a day? That is amazing considering this was the day before your long run! Do you crosstrain as well?

    • Oh no – I do not run two a days! It might seem like it b/c of the way I wrote that post. I ran 6 miles on Thursday evening and then 4.5 miles on Friday morning with Katherine and Liz. It kind of felt like a 2x a day though! Great to meet you this weekend!
