training week #4 and quick recap

Ok, sorry this will be quick.  I think I have a BSI disaster happening in my oven right now and Brian is pacing the house ready for our Saturday night dinner and grocery shopping date.


B and I skipped the group run this morning because it was only 23* when my alarm went of at 7:30. Instead we slept in a little (lovely!) and had a leisurely breakfast, nap and snack before finally going for our run at 1:30.  It was a balmy 35* by then…at least the sun was shining brightly.  We did 1/4 mile warm-up, 1-3/4 mile run and 1/4 mile cool-down.  My legs felt great and I wasn’t too winded despite the fact that the route we took was hillier than what we’ve been running.  However, my tendonitis in my left foot started to flare again.  😦  And, because my foot hurt I could feel myself compensating for it and by the end of the run my right knee was sore.  Bad news.  So, I’m going to the running shop on Monday to chat with my coach and probably get a new pair of shoes.  I’m determined to nip this from the beginning so that I don’t screw up my training again.


After our run I made a lovely breakfast for Brian and I of Apple Cinnamon Oats w/ Dried Cherries.  Yum! Never tried this combo before and I was quite pleased with it, as was Brian.



One serving contained

  • 1 cup prepared rolled oats
  • 1/2 chopped apple sprinkled with cinnamon
  • 2 heaping tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 tsp turbinado sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

After breakfast I blogged for awhile, then took a lovely 90 minute nap after I walked in the bedroom and saw this…


Just too comfy to resist!!!  You can barely see Lucy because she’s so dark…look behind Brian’s back…

After our nap I had a Z-bar before our run…


Then came home and heated up some leftover veggie stir fry and jasmine rice for lunch.


With a Wallaby non-fat mango lime yogurt on the side.


These yogurts have more sugar in them than I like, but they have great flavors.  And, I’m out of Oikos.  😦

And now I am waiting for my BSI disaster to come out of the oven.   No high hopes for a win this week, folks!  I’ll post about it after our dinner and grocery date…
