Long run day!

Hi all!

Hope you’re having a great Saturday!

We started our day off with a 10 mile run.  It was great!  Well, as great as running 10 miles can be 🙂  I like running and like training for a race but don’t LOVE the super long runs.  Which is why I don’t think I could ever do a full marathon.  I shouldn’t say that I couldn’t because I am a strong believer in being able to train your body to do almost anything but I guess I just plain don’t want to.  Maybe later in life I’ll catch the marathon bug 🙂

While the hubby and I were off running for an hour and a half, the Love Nugget was having a blast playing with his buddy.  Here are some pics our friends sent us.

Snack time!

Here friend, I’ll share with you!

All tuckered out from playing 🙂

Two handsome boys!  This picture reminds me of one of their first play dates when they were just a few weeks old…

Which was actually just about a year ago!  My how time flies by…

We came home from our run and I blended us up some Chocolate Coconut Water Green Protein Smoothies.  Before we left for our run I fueled up with a piece of toast with almond butter mixed with a tbsp of protein powder and some chopped bananas.  I always try to at least eat a little something that is protein packed before heading out on a run.

For the rest of the day we are getting the house in order and running a few errands.  Nani (My mother in law) is coming down for a visit this evening  and then staying with the Love Nugget while we are away.   She is the best and the Love Nugget just adores her!


What do you eat before a run or a workout?

I like to have protein bites in the fridge so I can chow down on a few while on my way to the gym or pre-run.  They are quick and easy!  I’m also a big fan of just spreading almond butter onto a banana and shoveling it in my mouth!
