Happy WIAW everyone! I am joining the party this week! Today I am sharing with you my day of eats from Saturday aka Long Run Saturday when in marathon training. :-)
Pre- Long Run Fuel:
I started my early morning off with coffee, water, two slices of Ezekial toast with almond butter and jelly and an apple. I am working on my fueling options while I am training for the marathon. Two slices of toast and an apple worked well for my 11 miler. I do think that bagels are going to have to start coming into the rotation as I start logging longer miles.
During the Run:
Un-pictured but LOTS of water and a Peanut Butter Gu at 5.5 Miles.
I grabbed a chocolate milk and banana from Whole Foods in Columbus Circle (I ran in Central Park) just to help those muscles with some protein and carbs!
I then headed back to Hoboken and met my friend for Brunch. It was so gorgeous out that we got to eat outside!
Spinach and Mozz Omelet with Potatoes and a Decaf Iced Coffee on the side.
I then headed to the pool for the rest of the day and lounged and recovered.
Once 5:00 hit all of the sudden RUNGER struck me and I needed food immediately. I probably should have brought a snack with me to the pool but I wasn’t thinking since I was full from Brunch.
I came home and had pretzels with PB and some cherries along with some orange seltzer.
I also sampled one of my cookies that I made for my family:
I was home for the night so I went out to dinner with my parents and we sat outside at a local Mexican place.
Guac, chips and salsa to share.
Shredded chicken, spinach, tomato quesadilla in a whole wheat wrap with sour cream, salsa and guac on top. So yummy!
After dinner we ran to the grocery store to pick up a watermelon since we haven’t had watermelon in awhile!
We munched on the watermelon while enjoying the beautiful summer evening in the backyard.
I have to say I had a very successful Saturday of enjoying yummy food and the outdoors all at the same time! I LOVE being outdoors and enjoying the gorgeous weather, so I am soaking it all up as much as I can! :-)
Who ate outside this weekend?
