fantastic five.


I did my first Saturday long run of my half marathon training this morning:  5 miles!  The last mile and a half or so were a challenge, but I finished!  My goal was to be done in under an hour and I finished at 57:18 (11:27 pace).  I would have ideally liked to have been under an 11:00 minute pace, but for my first longer run, I’ll take it!


I tried a little experiment with my cereal this morning.  I had a bowl of Kashi Heart to Heart and was really craving some protein.  So I added in some Sun Warrior protein powder.  I think it would have been a lot more effective if I had mixed it with the milk and then added it.  Instead, my chosen method of throwing it on top of the cereal  and pouring milk on that was a bit of a failure.

The Sun Warrior didn’t mix in so well and got a bit clumpy.  Oh well.  It was still edible, so I ate it.  I was hungry (and too cheap to throw it out and start over).


By the time I got home from the gym and then shoveled the sidewalks (we got about 4ish inches of snow last night), I was super hungry.  I had a box of Kraft macaroni and cheese in the pantry and it sounded amazingly good.  The bright yellow/orange cheesy powder is a bit disturbing, but the final product is enjoyable.  It’s a good every so often kind of treat!

The rest of the afternoon/evening, I’m hanging with my sister Nicki’s kids!  They’re are too cute for their own good, so I’m excited!
