So, just one day 'til we hop on the big bird and head to Michigan via Chicago! I'm finally over round two of this crappy cold and felt up for hitting the pavement this morning.
When I woke up I could see grey and feel the cool breeze rather than the usual sun that's been peeking through the windows as of late causing these 95 degree days. But the lungs and throat felt much better so I threw on the shorts, shirt and shoes and grabbed the dog. We did 20 minutes at a decent clip, then I did a few min of yoga and stretching and hit the shower.
It wasn't a six miler, but I'm feeling a little more confident that this Saturday won't totally suck. I'm fired up for Steve's Run! The man still has a bit of a cold so I'm hoping that disappears by tomorrow morning. Either way, this girl is packed for some serious relaxation in the sun, enjoying the lake, and BBQing with the man's family.
I'm trying to use all the leftovers in the fridge (because I hate to see food I spent $$ on, go to waste) so this morning I opted for an egg w/ a slice of cheddar melted on top, accompanied by a slice of tomato, avocado and ham all on top a freshly toasted piece of bread. Basically, a spin on the egg/cheese biscuit. It was awesome!
Tomorrow our flight leaves at 520AM, meaning we need to be awake around 315AM (he lives close to the local airport), which also means it's going to be a short night. I don't know about you, but I often take early flights bc a) they tend to be cheaper and b) i can get where I'm going earlier. The only prob is it throws the bod off schedule. Even though it will be the middle of the night, I'll need breakfast cuz my body will tell me so. I'm thinking pb on toast should hold me for a few hours anyway. Then a few hours later on our second layover, I'll prob be in need of a Starbucks and petite round 2 of breakfast.
And, on flights I like to pack a few healthy snacks so I don't crash and find myself forced to buy a $5 snack pack from the airline. Usually it will be an apple, almonds, maybe a luna bar, something like that. If you're a runner/athlete, you just have to do that, or maybe it's just my paranoia. But when my blood sugar gets low it's not a pretty sight people. So instead, I prepare for the inevitable and save $ along the way.
Do you pack snacks for the plane or road trips? Can you eat bkfst EARLY if you have to be up for a conference, flight, etc? Ok, it's time to crank out a lot of projects on the to do list!
