It’s another What I ate Wednesday, so I’m linking up with Jenn :
I planned to get my run in early yesterday morning, but slept in instead. Oops! We all three had breakfast together, eggs and zucchini muffins thawed from the freezer:
I shredded a carrot and apple into a few tablespoons of peanut butter and spread some on a tortilla for L’s lunch. (Super yummy- and will keep for a few days in the fridge.) We headed to a friend’s house for our Tuesday playdate, and stopped at the grocery store on the way home.
I had a few bites of L’s tortilla along with a handful of pretzels I had just bought for grandma and grandpa’s visit this weekend. After getting home and settling her down for a nap, I made a salad with chickpeas, carrots, avocado, peas and goddess dressing and grabbed a golden delicious apple.
Snack time was a homemade kashi granola bar… yum. I’ll share the recipe on Friday.
After L’s nap, we headed to the playground. This is where the 3 part run comes in. I never used to split up a run, but it’s really convenient with a toddler’s schedule, and I’m finding I’m getting more overall miles in. Part one- 2.5 miles to the playground. An hour or so later, we ran the 2.5 miles home and got brown rice started in the rice cooker. Daddy walked in the door and took over dinner, while I got a final 3 miles in for a total of 8ish miles at an easy pace.
I planned to run this as slow as I wanted after racing this weekend, but I felt good and kept a decent pace.
Since I’ve been doing most of the cooking in our house, it’s always a nice treat to come home to dinner. The goal was to use up our greens and tofu, and daddy made a really good coconut red curry stir fry. I always think dinner tastes better when I’m not the one who prepares it, have you found that? Here’s one of my two platefuls:
Soon after we were married, we agreed that whoever cooked didn’t have to do the clean up. So it was my turn yesterday. He and L headed outside to play with some neighborhood kids and I mixed up oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies dough to bake when my in-laws are here this weekend. I snatched a few bites in the process. I also had a post-dinner orange and a handful of raisins.
Do you ever split up a run to get all your mileage in?
