Eating plan = no 3:00 twix from large candy god in kitchen

Happy Tuesday Bloggy Friends. It’s a snowy day here in Cleveland. The forecast calls for 5 inches, I hope we get it! I love snow, at least the first few days of it, but once it starts melting and gets dirty, it’s the worst.

I met Brock this morning for a 6 mile recovery run, we kept pace at about 9:30-10:00 min pace. My legs were sore from my bootcamp class last night. We took a new route and I always enjoy running in the early morning snow. So quiet and all you hear are your feet crunching the snow. I am so happy to have a morning running partner! If it wasn’t knowing that he was waiting for me, there is no way I would have gotten out of bed. But I am so glad I did, I always feel sooo much better after getting my workout out of the way. Tonight I need to go swim. It’s been awhile and I have promised myself I will go at least twice a week this whole marathon training.

Work started off with an angry client, I hate those days, but I will not let it get me down. Why must I work! Sigh.

Feeling strong today. I have a few good eating days under my belt (well 2…) and a yummy lunch packed for today. If I plan ahead I do fine. If I take the time to pack a bag for work with food that I actually want to eat, then I do well. It’s when I half assed throw things in a bag in the morning that I end up going out to eat or hit the vending machine.

I have to do the same thing with packing my lunch the night before b/c it sure ain't happening at 5:30 in the morning!

I miss those afternoon candy bars too. =(

I've gotten better at packing my lunch for work. It saves money and valuable calories (that are usually spent on wine with dinner)...on another note--don't miss that Ohio snow!

It snowed a little here today as well. Unlike you, though, I want it to stop!!!

Sounds like you have your marathon training off to a great start. Good for you!

Love, Josh
