You win some, you lose some. I lost some.
Stamina that is.
Tonight was my running class. Somehow going in tonight I just knew it was not going to be stellar. The course was simple a 1.5 mile run to our starting point, then two timed mile intervals, and another mile back to “home base.” After the first 2.5 miles I was ordered up to a faster pacing group. I was already really tired and breathing super hard. The increased speed turned out to be too much for me, and before I finished my last interval I pulled over to the side and decided to walk back.
I felt a bit defeated by my lack of follow through, but sometimes you just have to listen to your body. I’ll make up the mileage on Thursday, and I’m running in a 5K this weekend. I have ample time to prove myself to myself.
In other news, today’s menu is total proof that I have some weird eating tastes. Oatmeal and sour cream really is good, you should try it. Also, apparently other people don’t eat wee fistfuls of radishes as snacks. I just learned that. I love radishes.
Oatmeal with low fat sour cream
Turkey chili with avocado
The folks at Zing bars sent me a sample pack to try out!
They’re all natural, gluten and animal product free. I was totally psyched to give them a shot.
I decided to start my sampling spree with the chocolate coconut bar, because chocolate and coconut are pretty much made for one another.
The verdict: Good. Totally like a Mounds Bar without the guilt. There was a slightly weird crunchiness that I couldn’t place, but it didn’t effect the taste. I’m looking forward to trying more.
To make myself feel better post running fail I made my favorite udon noodle soup with shrimp and bok choy.
