No time for breakfast before the gym this morning. I had a date with the treadmill for another 3 mile run. I decided to try out the pre-5K training schedule from Cool Running in an effort to get my legs and body used to the mileage. After replaying my race in my head, I realized that my legs weren’t quite ready. I needed more training than I ended up doing. So, basically, the schedule goes like this:
Monday – Off
Tuesday – 3 M
Thursday - 3M
Friday - Off
Saturday – 2 M
Sunday - 3M
A total of 14 miles per week. That’s a lot of running for me, but I’m looking forward to trying it out!
The date went well. The treadmill and I hit it off right away! I was able to get in a groove right away and hammered out the 3 miles. I decided that good tunes are a must for running; it really spurs me on!
I was starved after the run and thankfully had remembered to bring my dashboard breakfast – Banana Walnut Breakfast Cookie(recipe to be featured in Jen’s e-cookbook for charity-details soon)…
As I was heading home, I veered off for another dashboard treat…
I think it’s official – I like DD’s Pumpkin Latte Lite better than the ‘Bucks! Mainly because the small is only $.99! I know!!!!
Once home, I showered and headed out to Gram’s apartment. We had a nice lunch together and did lots of chatting. Gram’s fridge is always stocked, so I was able to put together a great ham and swiss sandwich on whole wheat with lettuce and fat-free ranch dressing. I was happy to see Gram had my frequent lunch side of carrots! She also had some leftover squash, so I snuck a bit of that, too…
Before I left, we went for a long walk throughout her complex. I was so confused and had no idea where I was within that building, but Gram knew the lay of the land well! Not too shabby for an 81 year old!
Later, I was ready for a snack. I got this free sample in the mail and thought it would make a great topping for yogurt…
I liked the banana chips!
The dinner plan was Philly cheesesteaks (Go Phillies!) and sweet potato fries. I wasn’t feeling the cheesesteaks, so I decided on some baked bbq tofu for myself. Weird, right? Who swaps out cheesesteaks for tofu?!!! I’m glad I did, though; it was just what I wanted! I rounded out the meal with some roasted zucchini…
Very Philling! <------corny.
Gotta dash! The “to-do” list is back!!!!
Have a great day everyone:)
ONE GOOD THING: Enjoying my coffee again without heartburn! I am so old :]
Questions of the Day: Have you ever tried tofu? If so, what did you think of it?
